Nip + Fab sell cruelty free and vegan ‘targeted skincare and bodycare treatments’ aimed at tackling a wide variety of skin issues, as well as a range of makeup and fake tan. They’re known for their unique and clinical ingredients, such as ‘dragon’s blood’, glycolic acid and retinol.
Is Nip + Fab Cruelty Free?
In short, yes, Nip + Fab are cruelty free. They simply state on their website: Our products are not tested on animals. But they don’t go into any more detail than this. Thankfully, I was able to email them last year and received this response:
“Our products are not tested on animals. We have an agreement with our manufactures and third parties that no animal testing has been conducted. We don’t sell any products in China.”
This cruelty free declaration isn’t certified by a body, but I wouldn’t find this too concerning. A few brands simply don’t want to pay a fee to be certified cruelty free. Besides, cruelty free certifications from bodies like Peta only require a declaration like the one above (plus a fee). Therefore, they don’t make it any more certain that a brand is cruelty free!
Do Nip + Fab Have Vegan Products?
Nip + Fab say all of their products are vegan apart from the following, which can be confusing when you’re just trying to have a general browse – it’s much easier when you have a list of what you CAN buy, but at least a list exists! At the moment, their list states that the following are NOT vegan (as of 20/11/19):
- Bee Sting Fix Cream Deluxe
- Bee Sting Fix Toning Pads
- Bee Sting Fix Eye
- Bee Sting Fix Lifting Mask
- Bee Sting Fix Body Souffle
- Bee Sting Fix Repairing Shot
- Mattifying Oil Control Primer Mask
- Ultra-Illuminating Dewy Primer Mask
- Dragons Blood Eye Mask
- Stiletto Fix
- Blusher Palette Blushed Brights 02
- Weightless Strobing Quad
- Eyeshadow Palette Sculpted
- Eye Shadow Palette Jewel 03
- Boy Bye Eyeshadow Palette
- Wonderland Eyeshadow Palette
- Fash-Hun Eyeshadow Palette
- Liquid Gold Drops Lilac Lights
- Lip Topper 04 Pink Rockets
- Lip Topper 05 Hypnotic
- Primer Water
- Liquid Lipsticks
- Liquid Concealer
Another thing to note is that out of these non-vegan products, it doesn’t state which are suitable for vegetarians. Currently, there is no way to browse only vegan or only vegetarian products on their website.
Is Nip + Fab Eco Friendly?
As far as I can see, there isn’t currently anything on Nip + Fab’s website to indicate that they are moving towards more eco-friendly or sustainable practises within their business. I did send them a follow-up email to find out if they had anything in the pipeline, but this was their response:
We are always looking at how we can improve at Rodial. Currently, we are proud to say that we do not test any products of our on animals. However, we will pass your feedback on to our product development team to investigate.
…I’ll take that as a no (and they spelt my name wrong).
