Thank you for your inquiry about Julep products. Julep is based out of Seattle, Washington and all of our products and polishes are manufactured within the United States. At this time, we currently only sell and ship our products within the United States and Canada. Regarding animal testing, we absolutely do not test on animals. Never have, never will! We only “test” on humans. One of the great things about Julep is we have 4 Nail Parlors and amazing customers that let us test and try products on them all the time!
Some of our products do contain animal-derived ingredients (milk, beeswax, etc). Here are some products that are completely VEGAN: Facial for Hands Glycolic Hand Scrub, Julep Essential Cuticle Oil, and any non-red nail polish. Another great thing about our products is that they are “4 Free”. We use no paraben, no sulphate phthalate, no DBP, and they are toluene and formaldehyde FREE. We like to say, we took out all of the nasty carcinogens that are found in so many other products.
I hope this convinces you even more how Julep can be a brand you can be proud to wear. Please let us know if you have any more questions. Until next time, have a wonderful day!
Noch einmal nachgehakt:
thank you very much for your response and clarifications.
Just to make sure: you wrote „we do not test on animals“. Can you also confirm that no third party on behalf of Julep conducts animal testing on finished products & ingredients? Can you also confirm that your suppliers don’t do animal testing on products & ingredients?
Is Julep affiliated with or owned by an enterprise that is testing on animals (or hast tests done on their behalf)?
Thanks also for the information on vegan products. When you say non-red nail polishes are vegan does this also include pink shades or do they contain carmine (which is the animal ingredient I suppose)?
Thansk again for your help.
Hier ist die Antwort auf mein nochmaliges Nachfragen:

Manche Fragen wurden wieder charmant ignoriert. Ich fragte also noch einmal nach:
thanks again for your response. Unfortunately this still didn’t answer my question. You confirmed that you don’t test on animals. This is really great but still can you also confirm that no third party on behalf of Julep conducts animal testing on finished products & ingredients? Can you also confirm that your suppliers don’t do animal testing on products & ingredients?
Hier ist die Antwort:
Thank you for following up with us. Julep is a privately owned and operated company so we do not have third party companies test products on our behalf. We have provided all the information we can about our policies towards not testing on animals. We hope you find the information in our previous correspondence helpful. Until next time, have a wonderful rest of your day!
Nachdem auf meine Fragen bis zum Schluss nicht Stellung bezogen wurde, schliesse ich daraus, dass eine 100 % Tierversuchsfreiheit nicht garantiert werden kann.
