On November 26, 2012, L’Oréal announced their plan to acquire Urban Decay. They were purchased by L’Oréal later that year. This means that Urban Decay is now owned by a parent company that tests on animals.
Before this acquisition, Urban Decay was owned by another parent company that tests on animals, LVMH.
Ever since their beginnings, Urban Decay has remained cruelty-free, and the brand isn’t sold in mainland China, where animal testing is required by law. Under L’Oréal, Urban Decay currently has no plans on expanding to China and is dedicated to remaining a cruelty-free brand.
