Is Bite Beauty Vegan?
Bite Beauty reformulated all of their products in 2020, so they are now 100% vegan. In the past, none of their lip products were vegan because they contained beeswax, lanolin, or carmine, but they have removed all of those ingredients from their products.
Here is a statement on the Bite Beauty website about becoming 100% vegan:
“Our reason to go vegan was simple-we’ve evolved. We can create high-performance formulas without ingredients that come from animals. As we’ve been innovating with superfoods, we’ve learned we can get amazing results that perform on par with – if not better than-formulas that contain animal byproducts.
Further, we wanted to create products everyone can love-including people who crave clean, cruelty-free, and vegan beauty.”
Is Bite Beauty Owned By A Parent Company That Tests On Animals?
Yes, Bite Beauty is owned by LVMH, which is not a cruelty-free company.
Is Bite Beauty Sold in Mainland China?
No, Bite Beauty 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 Hong Kong)?
- Are you owned by a parent company that tests on animals?
