Is SwiitchBeauty Cruelty-Free?

It is not possible to confirm whether or not SwiitchBeauty is 100% cruelty-free based on this questionnaire due to the fact that their answer to question 5 was too vague. It is impossible to deduce SwiitchBeauty’s position on animal testing if they do not specify whether or not they are willing to test on animals when required by law. It is your choice as to whether or not you feel comfortable supporting this business.

    Hi Kaylyn,
    I was under the impression that Swiitch simply purchases items online through AliExpress etc and rebrand them (private labelling). In that case surely they do not have all the info on where the supplier/s source their ingredients from, etc? (purely speculation on my part)
    I only trust retailers that are legally bound to obtain such info such as big-box, national retailers (like Clicks, etc). I would NEVER buy cosmetics from Wish, AliExpress, etc as they are not closely regulated

      Yes, I have heard many rumours about SwiitchBeauty private labelling. It should be noted that SwiitchBeauty has consistently refuted these claims and therefore I cannot treat them as a company that private labels. If they are lying, which is something that I don’t have the right to accuse them of, I’m hopeful that justice will be served as that is a serious offence. As I said, I encourage you to simply use this article as a guide. SwiitchBeauty should consider doing more to alleviate consumers’ doubts. I agree with you, cosmetics that are not closely regulated should be avoided. x

        Thanks for the response, Kay. I completely agree with you. Even those rumours make me uncomfortable enough not to use the products. I am VERY particular what I put on my face!

          You’re absolutely correct. I have sent them an email asking them if they plan to prove to consumers that they don’t private label, but I haven’t received a response just yet. x
