Bumble and Bumble is not cruelty-free. They may test on animals, either themselves, through their suppliers, or through a third party. Brands who fall under this category could also be funding animal testing by selling products in mainland China, where it's required by law.
“Dear valued consumer, thanks for reaching out. Bumble and bumble does not test our products on animals & we don’t ask others to test for us. If a regulatory body demands it for its safety assessment, an exception can be made.”
Although Bumble and Bumble is on PETA’s list of cruelty-free brands, we contacted them in 2021 and they gave us the animal testing policy above. Whether or not the brand currently sells products in mainland China, they clearly state in their policy that they do test on animals where required by law. For this reason, Bumble and Bumble is not a cruelty-free brand.
Bumble and Bumble is owned by Estée Lauder, a company that tests on animals. Not only is Bumble and Bumble not cruelty-free but neither is their parent company.
