Kylie Jenner is facing backlash over her new skincare line, Kylie Skin.
Recently, fans have been claiming that the line, which launched on May 22 as a continuation of the 21-year-old reality television star’s Kylie Cosmetics empire, uses animal by-products despite being described as “vegan.”
On the official Instagram page for Kylie Skin, the products are listed as “cruelty free, gluten free, sulfate free, paraben free, vegan [and] dermatologist tested.”
However, in a screenshot from one fan, ingredients for the Kylie Skin Foaming Face Wash appear to include Hydroxyacetophenone, which is reportedly derived from “the castor sacs of the mature beaver.”
But according to Page Six, Jenner’s face wash uses 4-Hydroxyacetophenone, a specific chemical compound derived from berries, which differs from 3-Hydroxyacetophenone, which contains animal by-products.
Meanwhile, other fans have claimed that Jenner’s Vanilla Milk Toner contains Squalane, a natural moisturizer that can be found in both in plants and shark liver.
However, despite confusion, the official Kylie Skin website clarifies that the ingredient used in the toner is, in fact, plant-based and “derived from olives.”
This is not the first time that Jenner has faced backlash over her new skincare line. On May 29, the star was criticized for leaving on makeup while washing her face quickly in a filtered video promoting her Walnut Face Scrub.
In response to the backlash, Jenner’s sister Kim Kardashian shared a video at the Kylie Skin showroom, where she poked fun at people’s comments.
“I’m going to teach you guys how to do a tutorial on how to wash your face and b**ches, I only have 10 seconds,” a babyface Kardashian is heard saying. “What else do you want me to do in 10 seconds?”
