Are your products tested on animals? Also, do you allow animal testing when required by law?
All of Dear Dahlia's products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free. We do not perform any type or form of pre or post animal testing or use any form of animal ingredients. We are not required by law to conduct any type of animal testing as we do not export to China.
Why vegan & cruelty-free?
Every year, 500,000 animals suffer from animal testing. 1,400 animals are sacrificed for just one ingredient and 622 cochineal insects are used for 1 lipstick. Therefore, numerous animals suffer from the widespread use of animal ingredients. Dear Dahlia is a vegan beauty brand which advocates spending for a good cause without the use of animal ingredients.
Dear Dahlia believes in timeless beauty — the mindful and sustainable kind that does not take away from our own planet. We stay true to our cause by creating 100% vegan and cruelty-free products without any animal ingredients or animal testing, while taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint. We will continue offering high-performance cosmetics that are as effective as they are environmentally responsible.

What kind of pigment do you use instead of animal ingredients in lipsticks?
Carmine (extracted from cochineal insects) is a pink/red pigment most frequently used not only in cosmetics but also in food and beverage. It is not a component that can be easily replaced as it provides the red shade that is frequently used in makeup products. However, following our philosophy and core belief of creating cruelty-free makeup products, we have dedicated many years of research to finding plant-derived ingredients and non-toxic, food-grade artificial colorants that are harmless to the human body.
What kind of glitter do you use instead of animal ingredients?
Glitter: Makeup companies in general use heavy metals and animal-derived ingredients (e.g. fish scale and shell pearls) to give the powerful shimmery finish. However, following our philosophy and core belief of creating cruelty-free makeup products, Dear Dahlia uses ingredients, such as a natural mineral complex and eco-friendly, biodegradable glitter particles to create Dear Dahlia's unique shine and shimmer.
What kind of preservatives are used instead of parabens?
Dear Dahlia products use safe preservatives, such as 1,2-hexanediol.
