Jack Black sells in China. This is the statement they shared with us regarding this update:

“Yes, Jack Black partners with a distributor in China and our products can be found at select prestige retailers.
However, please note, one of the most important tenets of Jack Black is our stance to be 100% cruelty-free and because of this the formulas sold in China are produced in the USA and filled in China which allows Jack Black to avoid testing on animals.  No animals are harmed in the production of Jack Black products.”

Even if Jack Black is able to bypass pre-market animal testing, selling in China still opens them up to the possibility of post-market animal testing. Although this risk is small, we cannot classify them as cruelty-free unless this possibility is removed.
