Australian Gold has confirmed that it is truly cruelty-free. They don't test finished products or ingredients on animals, and neither do their suppliers or any third-parties. They also don't sell their products where animal testing is required by law.
“Our brand does not test on animals. We do not request any animal testing. We request statements from suppliers stating they do not test on animals. Additionally, the majority of the raw materials we use are Vegan and we have statements from the supplier specifying this. In order for a raw material to be classified as Vegan, it cannot have been tested on animals. We do NOT test on animals where required by law, we have chosen not to distribute products in places where animal testing is required. We are in most countries globally and the list is too long to provide, the exception is for countries that require animal testing. For example, we are NOT in China as they DO require animal testing.”
Australian Gold is not owned by any parent company that tests on animals.
No, Australian Gold is not sold in mainland China.
No, Australian Gold is not certified by any organizations.
Australian Gold is cruelty-free but not 100% vegan, meaning that some of their products contain animal-derived ingredients.
We contact brands directly with our questions in order to get their full animal testing policy. If brands answer all our questions and confirm that no animal testing is happening at any point during production and beyond, they're added to our cruelty-free list. All brands we add have confirmed the information above.
