Hylamide is cruelty free but not 100% vegan

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

Cruelty free statement

Q: Do you test on animals?

A: As required by the European Cosmetics Regulations, we only work with suppliers who do not perform animal testing. Since that regulation came into force, it has pushed cosmetic raw material suppliers to replace animal testing with available alternatives to support the safety of their ingredients. DECIEM and The Ordinary do not test on animals and do not ask others to do so. For this reason, none of our brands or products are sold in stores or conventional retailers in mainland China, since such sales require animal testing for registration purposes.



Hylamide is a Canadian mid-range skin care brand.
