“For more than 30 years, Beiersdorf, has been at the forefront of seeking alternatives to animal testing. Animal testing has been completely banned for all cosmetic products in the European Union since 2004, and for all the ingredients of these products, since 2013. We are actively advocating for the worldwide acceptance of existing alternative animal-free test methods by respective authorities.
In China, animal testing is specifically required by law for the official safety certification of certain imported product categories. We are committed to working with the Chinese authorities to abolish animal testing for cosmetic products. We have been at the forefront of developing non-animal testing methods and actively advocate for the international acceptance of existing alternative techniques.
Beiersdorf has been a leading expert in skin care for more than 130 years. The quality of our products as well as the safety and health of our consumers have always been and will remain our highest priority.”

Aquaphor might offer some vegan products, however because this company is not cruelty-free, we recommend avoiding any products they offer even if they are vegan.
Most brands don't publicly display their full animal testing policies. We contact brands directly with our questions in order to get their complete policy. If any brand states that they, their suppliers, or any third party test on animals, the brand is listed as "not cruelty-free."
