Is RMS Beauty Owned By A Parent Company That Tests On Animals?

No, RMS Beauty is not owned by a parent company that tests on animals.

Is RMS Beauty Sold in China?

No, RMS Beauty is not sold in 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.

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:

  1. Are your products vegan? If yes, are all of them vegan or only some?
  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?

This is how RMS Beauty responded:

We use certified, organic, cruelty-free beeswax from the mountains in South America where the bees are away from city pollution, pesticides, insecticides, herbicides and fungicides, and neocides, making some of our products not vegan. 
We do not test on animals at any point in our product development or final product testing. Rest assured, our products, as well as the individual ingredients themselves, are not tested on animals. Our founder Rose-Marie is an animal cruelty activist and would never have or source ingredients where animals are harmed. We do not have a third-party test on animals on our behalf, and we do not and will never test on animals when required by law. We do not sell products in mainland China and we are not owned by any parent company.
We have not sought out the leaping bunny, PETA, or vegan certification at this time, but we will make sure to pass along your inquiry to the appropriate department.

Here’s a list of RMS beauty products that are 100% vegan:
