bareMinerals is cruelty free but not 100% vegan

bareMinerals pledges that the brand does not conduct, contract out or fund animal testing in the developing, manufacturing or marketing of their products. Whilst bareMinerals recognises the importance of customer safety, the brand believes this can be sufficiently achieved without animal cruelty. bareMinerals is cruelty free and stands against animal testing. Furthermore, bareMinerals does not export its products to mainland China and/or other countries, where animal testing is required by law.
