Suave is in the grey area.
This means that it's currently unclear whether or not the brand is cruelty-free, since they haven't provided enough information. Some brands that fall under this category refuse to share their complete animal testing policy or answer questions about their cruelty-free status.
Suave is owned by Unilever, a company that is not cruelty-free.

Suave is most likely not sold in China, however there was no clear statement made by the brand.
“The brand has worked with PETA to ban all tests on animals worldwide, including in China, where animal testing is required for many products. Suave products will soon carry PETA’s cruelty-free logo so that shoppers can tell at a glance that they weren’t tested on animals.”
The statement above is vague, since PETA-approved brands tend to claim not to test on animals in China, even though their products are sold there.
