Is Alima Pure Owned By A Parent Company That Tests On Animals?
No, Alima Pure is not owned by a parent company that tests on animals.
Is Alima Pure Sold in Mainland China?
No, Alima Pure is not sold in mainland China.
Animal Testing is required by law in China for all foreign cosmetics companies. All American and European cosmetic brands that are sold in China must undergo animal testing.
Any brand that chooses to sell its products in China cannot be considered cruelty-free.
Even products that can bypass mandatory tests may still be pulled from the shelves by Chinese authorities to be tested on animals.

Email to the Company
Before classifying any brand as cruelty-free and vegan, I send them an email with the following questions.
- Are your products vegan? If only some are vegan, which ones?
- Are any of your products or ingredients tested on animals?
- Do you have a Leaping Bunny or PETA certification?
- Do your suppliers or any third parties test animals on your behalf?
- Does your company sell products in mainland China (except for Hong Kong and online sales)?
- Are you owned by a parent company that tests on animals?
This is how Alima Pure responded to my email:
- Not all of our products are vegan, but I’m happy to report that most are! Our AP Brush Collection, Eye Primer, Natural Definition Eye Pencil, Natural Definition Brow Pencil, Pressed Eyeshadow, Pressed Foundation with Rosehip Antioxidant Complex, Smooth + Prime, and all of our loose powders (such as Satin Matte Foundation, Loose Mineral Blush, Radiant Finishing Powder, etc.) are vegan. Each product has a complete list of ingredients located on its product page for easy reference.
- No, Alima Pure does not test any ingredients or products on animals. Additionally, we have documents certifying that our ingredient suppliers do not provide us with any ingredients that were tested on animals.
- We are a Certified B Corporation, though we have decided not to renew other certifications, such as Leaping Bunny. As a small, independent company, we prefer to spend those third-party certification resources contributing to causes that we love, like One Percent For The Planet, and in developing more sustainable new products, like our refillable compacts. We are also certified for sale in the EU and pass all regulations (including being cruelty-free).
- Alima Pure, without exception, does not test on animals or use third-party animal testing resources. We also have documents certifying that our manufacturers do not purchase any ingredients that were tested on animals.
- No, Alima Pure does not sell products in mainland China.
- Alima Pure is independently owned and does not have a parent company.
