The short answer: Yes, Adorn Cosmetics is cruelty free.
The long answer: Australian-made Adorn Cosmetics carries a wide range of beauty products that promises to “help you look good, do good, and feel good at every stage of your life.” It was founded by Briony Kennedy, who was driven to create positive social change with ethically made cosmetics that are kind to animals and the earth.
Since 2008, Adorn Cosmetics has manufactured and distributed makeup, skin care, and body care products that go beyond being safe for people. In their blog, the brand discusses the difference between vegan and cruelty free, and shares their certification on both accounts:
“Vegan Products: The product contains NO animal ingredients or animal by-products.
Cruelty Free Products: Both the end product and its individual ingredients have NOT been tested on animals.
Vegan AND Cruelty Free Products: The only guarantee that a product is really cruelty free!
However, it is very important to point out here that ‘claims’ from a company are simply not enough to prove this. It is imperative that a company has reputable and recognised accreditations from companies like Choose Cruelty Free and The Vegan Society to ensure the truth behind their products labelling.
Adorn Cosmetics has proudly been registered with both of these organisations since the brand launched in 2008. Our commitment to being kind to animals, so that no animal suffers in the name of beauty, can be seen by visiting Choose Cruelty Free and The Vegan Society.”
