Email to the Company

Before classifying any brand as cruelty-free and vegan, I send them an email with the following questions:

  1. Are your products vegan? If only some are vegan, which ones?
  2. Are any of your products or ingredients tested on animals?
  3. Do you have a Leaping Bunny or PETA certification?
  4. Do your suppliers or any third parties test animals on your behalf?
  5. Does your company sell products in mainland China (except Hong Kong)?
  6. Are you owned by a parent company that tests on animals?

Here is how Pacifica responded:

Thank you so much for taking the time to reach out. We are and always have been 100% vegan and cruelty-free. It’s who we are, and have been from the beginning, over 20 years. We are PETA certified and do not use animal products, bi-products or condone any testing on animals anywhere in any country.

Our products are made in the USA using the best globally sourced ingredients. The exception is our eye pencils, a few of our palettes, and sample bag items. We always list the country of origin on our packaging. All facilities we work with meet our high standards.

We are not owned by a parent company and still run with the passion of our original founder and her vision!
