People Tested. Animal Approved.

People Tested. Animal Approved.

I frequently get asked the question as to whether or not Julep tests on animals. As the VP of Product Development, I can firmly reply—no, Julep does not test on animals.

But after one coat of Tiffany (Bombshell) jelly, presto! A moody, glossy violet. How... Read More

Our CEO on Scathing NY Times Nail Polish Article

Dear Friends, When I left my safe corporate job to start Julep seven years ago, my mission was to change the beauty category, to make it empowering and safe for women, to enable women to play with beauty without fear of unhealthy toxins or participating in the exploitation of other women. From day one, we have been the very opposite of the appalling conditions described in the New York Times recent series on nail salons. Our Julep polishes have always been five-free—free of formaldehyde, toluene,... Read More
