Sephora is the exclusive beauty retailer for this product.

Almost every cosmetic ingredient has been tested on animals cruelly and extensively - so if you are really asking "in any way," then yes animal testing has occurred.

I don't know what Ardency Inn's policy is on testing FINISHED products on animals.

However, almost all cosmetic ingredients included in modern products are [have been] tested on animals during research and development, and before they are approved by the FDA. So that's the legacy of these chemicals, and there's no avoiding it.

Many companies don't test their finished products on animals (and they don't need to because the individual components have already been tested in this way). Or, they have an independent lab conduct testing so they can say THEIR company does not test on animals.

Just a few things to watch for as you research the policies of any one cosmetic company.

I have mixed the primer with the concentrate with good results but it does seem to give a bit thicker coverage that way. I prefer to apply the primer to bare skin then apply the concentrate mixed with moisturizer and blend it in with a fluffy foundation brush.

Yes, I have an oily Tzone and this primer actually seems to absorb some oil and keeps me from having to apply powder many times throughout the day.
