Yes Wet N Wild is Cruelty Free

Hi Beauties!

I have been seeing a lot of stories on instagram about Wet N Wild beauty. Apparently some are shocked to find that Wet N Wild products are sold in department stores in China where animal testing is required while claiming to be cruelty-free.

Brands can sell products in China and remain cruelty free! There seems to be a huge lack of knowledge about China’s animal testing requirement.
Here’s a simple breakdown on China’s animal testing requirement:
-All special use cosmetics (ex SPF, anti aging, hair dyes, etc ) must be tested on animals regardless of their country of origin.
-All regular cosmetics (eyeshadow, foundation, mascara) made in China and sold in China have no requirement to be tested on animals.
-Regular cosmetics Manufactured internationally and sold within China are required to be tested on Animal.
-Regular cosmetics manufactured internationally and sold to China exclusive via e-commerce (online only) are not required to be tested on animals.

Wet n Wild products sold in department stores in China are manufactured in China and as such are NOT required to test on animals. Wet N Wild is still on Peta’s cruelty Free list for cosmetics and nail polish.

Effective Jan 2020, China will no longer require animal testing on any cosmetics products and hopefully this will help clear a lot of confusion about what brands are actually cruelty free!

Hope this helps you understand that selling cosmetics in China does not mean a brand is not cruelty free. The picture is not black and white. You do need to find out what types of products are being sold and where they are manufactured before you can start making claims that a brand is torturing animals.

Stay Informed!
XOXO,

Avi Y.R.

    1. Yes! We do need to be aware that selling in China does not automatically mean a brand is not cruelty free. That depends on the corporate ethics of a brand. Peta still stands by Wet n Wild and I personally find Peta to be a more credible source on the issue.

      1. I agree! I’d definitely say Peta would b a more credible source! With the internet today, unfortunately anyone can say anything and it’s often seen as truth and fact. However it’s not fair to stand against a brand and post stuff about them abusing animals when ur not well informed, so it’s so great that u made this post to help educate ppl on the facts n show that there are different aspects that come into play, like what kind of products are being sold n where they’re being manufactured!

    2. Right, like because you don’t trust a brand anymore does not mean that you can claim they are something they are not without proof. You may not trust them anymore which is fine but that’s grounds to do more research rather than make bold claims.

  5. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being ripped off? I’d certainly appreciate it.

  12. I love wet n wild this saddens me that they test in animals in China. There has to be a way to test products without animals they’re doing it for the united States why not just make it all cruelty free. Very informative thanks for sharing
