Likewise, the brand is known in the entire world for not using toxic material in producing nail polish.

Although the brand claims that they are cruelty-free there is no certification that can confirm that. The brand is not certified by any national or international organization/program on being cruelty-free.

Olive & June does not test their products on animals. The company confirmed that they do not test any of their products on animals. 

Are Olive & June’s products being sold in Mainland China?

All cosmetic or skincare products which are sold in mainland China in physical stores are required by law to be tested on animals. Therefore is important that a brand does not sell in mainland China in order to be cruelty-free. In my research a did not find any information that Olive and June sell their products in China, so it is safe to imply that the company does not have stores in China.

All of the brand’s products are cruelty-free and vegan. On the company’s official website, each product is labeled with a cruelty-free and vegan remark such as this example of nail primes. 

What is Olive and June is doing to become cruelty-free?

The company is already cruelty-free and vegan so there is not much they can do but continue producing clean nail polish and accessories. Also, the brand does not have any statement in this matter. However, they do not have any certification which can confirm that they do not conduct animal testing, so I hope that the next step will be to sign a cruelty-free program.
