Let’s take a dive and explore a bit about this brand’s cruelty and vegan policies, shall we?!

Does Milani Test on Animals?

Milani does not test its products on animals. No animals are involved in the manufacturing and testing. Milani products are completely free from any kind of cruelty worldwide.

This means, no Milani product gets tested on animals by Milani itself, any country authority, or a third party. Its transparent manufacturing and testing policy has brought Milani both PETA and Leaping Bunny certification.

Milani Animal Testing

Milani is always vocal regarding its manufacturing policies. According to the brand’s official statement, Milani products never go through animal testing in any form.

“Cruelty is never captivating. At Milani, we believe that bold beauty should never come at the cost of animal testing. That’s why our makeup is 100% cruelty free, as certified by PETA. Always. We never test on animals, and we don’t allow others to test on our behalf.”

Milani’s transparent policy makes a thorough review of its ingredients supply chain to prevent animal cruelty. It does not sell its products in China where animal testing is required by law.

Cruelty-Free Timeline

I could not find enough information to comment on Milani’s animal testing policy during its initial years.

2014: Milani was approved by PETA for Beauty without Bunnies program in 2014. It joined PETA’s cruelty-free campaign around that time.

Milani also got its Leaping Bunny certification in June 2014.

Does Milani sell in China?

Milani products are not available in mainland China’s consumer market. It has not expanded its brand to China where testing is essential for cosmetics made outside the borders.

You can buy it in China from online websites that have overseas shipping enabled. It is not a very popular form of purchase and is rarely used. This kind of indirect sale is free from China’s mandatory animal testing rule.

Does Milani manufacture in China?

No, Milani products are not made in China.

Is Milani Vegan?

Milani is not entirely vegan but offers vegan products. So, it is more of a vegan-friendly brand.

A makeup product is vegan if it does not have animal-sourced ingredients such as lanolin, beeswax, honey, silk, etc. Some products in Milani’s catalog do contain products derived from animals.

However, Milani’s vegan-friendly product list is quite alluring. Milani attaches a vegan tag to its vegan products. You can easily identify if a product is vegan or not.

Here is what the brand says about veganism.

Our vegan, cruelty-free makeup collection includes over 50 products that are completely free of any animal-derived ingredients. Plus, our professional makeup brushes are made of high-quality synthetic fibers, so they’re vegan-friendly, too.

Do I Recommend Milani?

Definitely! I recommend Milani because of its quality and cruelty-free status. Both Milani’s finished products and ingredients are 100% free of animal testing. It has a good amount of vegan makeup range to choose from.

Personally, I love Milani 2-in- 1  foundation and concealer. It is a drugstore foundation that is so useful while traveling. You can use it for the No Makeup Look. I often use it more as a concealer.

Plus, Milani products do not contain harmful chemicals like triclosan, hydroquinone, and formaldehyde. Milani products also come with two golden standards of cruelty-free cosmetics, Leaping Bunny and PETA certification.
