Collection Cosmetics Animal Testing Policy and Vegan List


Collection is a brand that I used a lot before I turned vegan, and since they have so many great products at such affordable prices I was keen to get their animal testing policy so all you animal lovers can feel confident buying from them. Here is what they had to say:
Hi Kelly,
Many thanks for contacting us. 
We can confirm as follows:
Are any of your finished products tested on animals either by your company or through a third party? 
Collection Cosmetics do not test and do not instruct any third party to test finished products on animals. 
Are any of the ingredients you use in your products tested on animals either by your company or through a third party? 
We can confirm that our company do not test any ingredients on animals. However, we cannot confirm that a third party has never tested an ingredient on animals. Some ingredients have been around for a long time and also they have been animal tested for non-cosmetic purposes (e.g. for use in medicinal products). Since 2009, all new cosmetic ingredients are not animal tested as this is stipulated in the EU Cosmetics Regulations. 
Are you or your manufacturers owned or affiliated with any companies that may test on animals? 
We are not affiliated with any companies or manufacturers that test on animals. 
Do you currently sell your products in China? 
We do not sell our products in China. 
Do any of your products contain any animal by-products (eg. lanolin, carmine, albumen, whey, beeswax, etc.) 
Some of our products do contain animal/insect derived ingredients - please see below a list of Collection products* (this is just an indication and it does not include all of the Collection range): *I've edited out all of the products that are not suitable for vegans.
After talking to a couple of other cruelty-free bloggers and learning that they received slightly different answers than myself, I emailed Collection again and asked them to answer these questions specifically, again their answers are in bold.
Are any of the inredients you use in your products tested on animals either by your company or through a third party?
we can confirm that our company do not test any ingredients on animals. 
 Do you require your manufacturers or any third party to be cruelty-free?
Yes
Are you or your manufacturers owned or affiliated with any companies that may test on animals?

From the reply I've received it appears that Collection Cosmetics may be cruelty-free, however I am very cautious because of the mixed responses other people are getting. I've made sure to include the questions I asked in this post, so you can see exactly what they were replying to in order to make your own mind up on their cruelty-free status. Personally I'll be staying away from the brand until they clear everything up, but that's up to each individual to decide for themselves.
