Barry M Cosmetics have never tested their finished products or ingredients on animals or engaged another company to do so on our behalf.
Although we have NEVER tested any of our products or their constituents on animals, some of our products do contain common ingredients that will have, at some point, been tested by other parties (not at our request). These are often ingredients that have been included in cosmetics for many years and were therefore tested when there wasn't so much awareness about the issues.
The statement we make is made to be as transparent as possible in terms of our products and our stance against animal testing. With these values we are proud to be able to work with amazing animal rights charities such as FOUR PAWS.
All of our products are suitable for vegetarians but some do contain animal by-products (like Beeswax) making them unsuitable for Vegans.
Ranges of products not suitable for Vegans are Foundation Creme, Translucent Compact (loose powder format is fine), Natural Dazzle compact (loose powder format is fine), Shimmering Eye and Lip Crayon, Lip paint, Super Soft Eye Crayon, Lip gloss Stacking Set and Lip Balm, Blusher Brush & Eye Brush.
All VEGAN friendly products have this symbol included on the drop down list of ingredients. You can find these on each product page entitled "View Product Ingredients"
We are proud to be listed by Naturewatch as a Cruelty Free supplier of cosmetics with a fixed cut-off date animal testing policy.
