Yes, Mitty is cruelty free.
Launched in 2014, Mitty is a brand that manufactures and sells salon-quality nail products throughout Australia. These include gel polish sets, nail art brush kits, clean up tools, and polish removers. Their website even offers in-person and virtual nail training courses.
The nail art brand was developed by Mitra Burns while she was recuperating from a kidney transplant. On the About Us page, Burns writes, “All Mitty nail design products are cruelty free, 100% vegan, and palm oil free.” Though the website does not mention any certifications, Mitty is actually recognised as “cruelty free and vegan” by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ (PETA) Beauty Without Bunnies program. The brand even displays the PETA logo on their packaging.
On PETA’s blog, the third party organisation explains how a nail care company like Mitty can be certified as both animal test-free and vegan:
“Global animal test-free recognizes companies and brands that have verified that they and their suppliers do not conduct, commission, pay for, or allow any tests on animals for their ingredients, formulations, or finished products anywhere in the world and that they will never do so in the future.
Global animal test-free and vegan recognizes companies and brands that meet the same requirements and whose entire product line is free of animal-derived ingredients. These companies are truly cruelty-free…
To be considered ‘cruelty-free’ under PETA’s Global Beauty Without Bunnies program, a company must not only ban animal tests but also refuse to use any animal-derived ingredients, such as honey, beeswax, or carmine, in its products.”
