DO YOU TEST ON ANIMALS?
No! We absolutely don't conduct or condone any sort of animal testing.
WHAT ABOUT MARKETS THAT REQUIRE ANIMAL TESTING?
We will not sell Antonym in markets that require animal testing. We are independent and can make these decisions without the pressures of quarterly returns. We will not compromise our values for profit.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS VEGAN?
Most Antonym makeup is vegan. The only non-vegan ingredient we use is organic beeswax in our lipsticks. Antonym brushes are certified vegan.
IS ANTONYM MAKEUP SUITABLE FOR ALL SKIN TYPES?
Antonym makeup is suitable for all skin types. However each person is different, so it's best to try. Many users with sensitive skin have told us that Antonym has become their favorite makeup due to the natural ingredients that don't irritate their skin.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS CERTIFIED?
Yes. All Antonym makeup products are certified by ECOCERT, a European certification body similar to the USDA. ECOCERT certifies the type of ingredient (natural/organic) as well as that our packaging, storage and manufacturing is done according to high standards.
All Antonym makeup brushes are certified vegan. Vegan certified products do not contain animal products or by products and have not been tested on animals according to The Vegan Awareness Foundation. The Certified Vegan Logo on our brushes is administered by The Vegan Awareness Foundation (official name of Vegan Action), a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public about veganism and assisting vegan-friendly businesses.
As the demand for products made without chemicals and without animal testing has grown exponentially in the last few years the choices for truly natural and organic cosmetics have remained limited. Our certifications provide buyers the assurance that all Antonym Cosmetics products are made with natural and/or organic ingredients and that they have not been tested on animals.
WHERE IS YOUR MAKEUP MADE?
Our makeup is developed in the US and manufactured in the EU (Italy, France, Czech Republic).
YOUR FOUNDER IS FRENCH...IS ANTONYM A FRENCH COMPANY?
