Updated: Apr 14, 2021

The following list consists of companies that are not cruelty-free. Its main source is PETA, and we’ve supplemented it with our own research. These brands engage in animal testing OR fund animal testing in some capacity, the most common example being by testing on animals where the law requires it. Also note that some of the brands listed here misleadingly label themselves as “cruelty-free”, a term that is not regulated.

Big Corporations Who Test On Animals

Most of these brands are owned by a few giant corporations: L’Oreal, Estee Lauder, Procter & Gamble, Clorox, Johnson & Johnson, S.C. Johnson, Colgate-Palmolive, Reckitt Benckiser, Church & Dwight, Unilever, and Henkel.

These companies own the majority of the brands we commonly find in most retailer stores and drugstores, and they’re making no real efforts to change their unethical policies.

There are however two exceptions, the first one being Colgate-Palmolive, which have agreed to gradually change their policy. PETA currently lists Colgate-Palmolive as “working toward regulatory changes to reduce the number of animals used for testing”. This does NOT mean the company is or will be cruelty-free in the near future! It’s only a small step in the right direction, and the company still DOES test on animals at this point.

The second exception consists of a few select brands. While in most cases, brands that are owned by companies that test on animals are not cruelty-free, L’Oreal is one of the few companies to own brands that have kept their ethical stances and have remained cruelty-free under the ownership. The same goes for Too Faced and Becca (now owned by Estee Lauder but still cruelty-free) and Tom’s of Maine (Colgate-Palmolive). All the brands mentioned on this list, however, do test on animals.

Please note that this list is not exhaustive. This list only includes companies that claimed they test on animals at some point, or sell in China; there are many other companies who remained silent about their animal testing policy.

    I really appalled by all these companys which I use.

  • Shocking I think the public need to be aware that this barbaric act is still happening I really thought that it had been banned wait till you see the list of companies who test on poor defenceless animals causing so much pain it needs to stop I will certainly be checking in future any products I buy are not tested on animals

  • Avatar Eileen says:

    Thank you for this list ? I’ve been using Philosophy products because I believed she was told by them that they were cruelty free 🙁🙁could you please exsplain in more detail?

  • Avatar Sheryl White says:

    Hi, I was wondering if aldi lacura products are cf and also I’m looking for a cf reasonably priced sunscreen,

    Thanks 👍🐇

  • Avatar Rhonda Ladson says:

    I never thought of looking for toothpaste and feminine hygiene items on the cruelty free list. Everytime I read your emails, I am sickened by this. Money, money is what drives these companies. How can you be so cruel to an animal who can’t defend itself. My hope is they bite the bastard’s.

  • THANK YOU A LOT FOR THIS LIST

  • Avatar Cherry moore says:

    I can’t believe so many products still being tested on animals

  • Avatar Linda Gladstone says:

    After viewing your list of companies that test on animals, I was shocked to find my loyalty to Lysol & other brands I believed were cruelty-free, were NOT! THANK YOU so much for this list, and for ALL of you research and efforts for our cherished animal kingdom who do not have a voice to these injustices by us humans!!

  • Avatar Sharine Mizrahi says:

    Thank you so much for this list and the work that you do.

  • Avatar Min Gould says:

    God so many awful I guess it’s because they sell to main land China I wonder if they would like to be tested on !!!!

  • Avatar Sue says:

    Please add Miller Harris to your list (niche perfumes) which boast of being ‘ethical’ but allow others to test on animals if ‘ required by law’.

  • Avatar Dana Hawkins says:

    Hi, I shop with QVC UK and I have just called them to ask if a brand they sell named Australian Bodycare test on animals. They have just told me that NONE of their brands test on animals. However they have just started selling Estee Lauder so I dont understand how this can be true. Is there anyway you can find out for me if QVC UK sells Brands that DO or DO NOT test on animals please? Many thanks. Dana

  • Avatar quirsa says:

    Good morning. As far as I can see on PETA List, wet n wild do not test on animals. Check it if you please 😉

  • Avatar Nicki says:

    Cerave does not test on animals. I don’t know where you get your information from, but they do not. Please DO NOT send me anything.

  • Avatar Annoyed at your retail ads says:

    Can’t ever read the list or search bc of your annoying pop up ads trying to sale products that DO test animals!!!!

    Either be a commercial website or info site but choose one!!!!!

  • Avatar Pebbles the Funny Bunny says:

    I heard Dove and St. Ives was certified to be cruelty free earlier this year. Is it not cruelty free Or did you include them in the list because they are sold in China?

  • Avatar Francine says:

    Thank you for doing this work. It is incredibly helpful. I have been trying to find out about a brand Oligo. It seems their hair care products are cruelty free but I’m not sure about the color line. Wondered if you knew of them ?
    Again thank you so much!!?

  • Avatar Francesca Smith says:

    Wet n wild don’t test on animals tho?

  • Avatar Maegha says:

    Hi Suzi, could you please tell us whether Surface brand is cruelty-free? The reason I ask is because I have curly hair and it can be hard to find salons that specialize in curly hair care and products. Surface is one of the hair care brands that salons in my area use and this particular salon is a lot cheaper than the ones I’ve found that use DevaCurl, so I just wanted to confirm. The brand does claim to be completely vegan. Thanks so much for creating this site and all your wonderful resources!

    – A fellow animal lover and vegan

    • Avatar Vicky says:

      Hi Maegha,

      I don’t know if you’ll see this, but a really good product for curly hair is Curl Keeper by Jonathan Torch and it’s vegan. I’ve been using it for years on my curly hair and it’s amazing. I would highly recommend it!

  • Avatar Natsumi says:

    I purposely purchase product tested on animals
    Your don’t support is my do support!

    I blacklist the leaping bunny symbol and thanks for pointing out who I need to avoid.

    I also love fur coats and killing animals for profit

  • Avatar Iro says:

    Crueltyfreeintl has announced on Instagram that Estee Lauder companies are now cruelty free! ✌️✌️

  • Avatar bobbie sheets says:

    I’m very disappointed to find out that I have indeed been using and have given my money to some cruel companies. I WON’T make that mistake again! Thank you so much for this comprehensive list! Very helpful. It just blows my mind that this world is so crappy that ppl will actually torture animals for money. But that is not nearly as hard to believe as the ppl who will give these companies without a care. Some out of ignorance, I know. I was one of them. But now that I know….. it just gives me this awful feeling I can’t explain to think about what might actually go on. All in the name of “beauty”. All in the name of “business” and the almighty dollar. Very sad. smh

  • Avatar Anne says:

    Thank you very much for this very systematic article. I am astonished to find that many of these products are sold in Danish supermarkets taking into consideration that products tested on animals are forbidden in Europe. People generally think that products such as Sanex, Zendium and Yves Rocher are owned by environmentally responsible people and are not aware that many of these sell to China or have other brands tested on animals. I would really like to see all of these brands taken down from the shelves in the supermarket.

  • Avatar Zizi says:

    From my point of research L‘occitane and Nivea do not test on animals at any production stages.

  • Avatar Melissa says:

    Hello
    What about Sally Hansen pelase ? it was known as non cruelty free but I can’t see it in the list anymore

    thank you

  • Thanks for the list! ☺

  • Avatar Fabi says:

    Hi i am Fabi and i like it to kill and animals

  • Avatar Melissa says:

    thank you, I regularly check your lists . Sally was known as Not cruelty free but I can’t see it in the list anymore ?

  • Avatar Lydia says:

    Now that Estee Lauder, which does animal testing, bought The Ordinary skincare company, will The Ordinary remain cruelty free?

  • Avatar Megan says:

    Dove now has a PETA cruelty free badge.

  • Avatar Andreea Gray says:

    Hi! thank you so much for putting together this list! I’ve been cruelty free for just a bit under 1.5 yrs and while it took a little to navigate and find my CF alternatives, there are indeed plenty that are even cheaper than the brands that test on animals and better!

    I was wondering if The White Company is CF (on their website it says they don’t test, nor their suppliers. But nothing about 3rd parties… ) – Just got some products as a present and while I rather go ” when in doubt don’t use” , my husband seems keen to use it (still working on converting him, one toothpaste at a time!)
    Thanks!

  • Avatar Amanda says:

    It sucks that so many huge corporations test on animals! But I was under the impression that Bath and Body Works was cruelty-free. At least on their products (lotions and body washes anyway) it says they don’t test on animals. Could you clear this up for me? Thanks!

    Make up

  • Avatar Caroline Lockie says:

    I am looking for a cream foundation that I can buy in the UK, please?

  • Avatar alex says:

    You may want to recheck this list… Unilever as of 2019 is no longer conducting animal testing and is peta certified..

  • Avatar Psilla says:

    Hi! I just have heard in radio L’Oreal commercial where they saying they don’t test, and have not tested anything on animals for last 30 years unless required by law of country that they sell in (china I guess?) – is it a revolution then, or just a commercial hoax?
    only info i’ve found: https://www.loreal.com/sustainability/l'or%C3%A9al-answers
    https://www.loreal-paris.co.uk/faq

    Please help! because if that’s true it would be a game changer!

  • Avatar Cynthia Surface says:

    Hi there, I am a hairstylist and colourist, and I currently work in a salon that carries some brands that I was curious about and I can receive no information on, I would like to know if Kuene is tested on animals or sold in China. It would be so helpful if there is a list for professional grade hair colour, I did look at yours above but not a complete list. Here are the brands that I am curious about Surface, Davines, Kuene, alaparf.
    The only three confirmed cruelty free are Kevin Murphy, organic Colour systems, Paul Mitchell.

    • Avatar Maegha says:

      As someone with curly hair looking to get a cut at a salon, I am also curious about Surface brand!

  • Avatar Mathilde GON says:

    Yves Rocher is a cruelty free brand -> https://www.yves-rocher.fr/questions-reponses/nos-produits

  • Avatar Sara says:

    Does Nivea test on animals?

  • Avatar Rebecca Nelson says:

    I’m trying to do a search and nothing is coming up for any of these is there a glitch maybe? Like I had it narrowed down at first but then did one for all of it and still coming back saying there is a zero result match?

  • Avatar Annie says:

    I think my heart stopped when I saw Pat McGrath! But I just looked at her FAQ on patmcgrathlabs.com and it says they don’t test on animals ??‍♀️ I’m totally not second guessing your research, I’m just confused.

  • Avatar Starr says:

    Hi! I’m a frequent visitor to your site to find out about brands but, I have so many love beauty and planet products and all of them say not tested on animals on the bottle so I don’t know if what you have on this list about this brand is 100% true. I feel like if they tested on animals they wouldn’t be putting it on the label that they don’t.

  • Avatar Anna Gonzales says:

    Is mario badescu products cruelty free? Would like to know ?

  • Avatar Emily says:

    Anyone know if Skinmedica is cruelty free?

  • Avatar Tia says:

    Hi Suzie! Is this list updated as of March, 2019 by chance? Thank you <3

  • Avatar Nam says:

    Hello, do you know if korean brands like Dr. Wonder, Etude House & Innisfree are cruelty-free? Thank you!

  • Avatar nayer says:

    Is the brand huda beauty and Fenty Beauty By Rihanna cruelty free ?

  • Avatar Liis says:

    Does anyone know whether or not Holika Holika and Natura Siberica are cruelty-free?

  • Avatar Nitte Schmidt says:

    Ysl and L’Oréal claims they dont test on animals on their website, and now I’m a bit confused. I also know a few of these has gone cruelty free over the oast year, so would it be possible to get an updated list?

  • Avatar Rat-Man says:

    I am the Rat-Man

  • Avatar Nikole says:

    What does it mean when a brand isn’t on the cruelty free list or the testing animals list? Is it a brand in the gray area?

  • Avatar Tashina Ells says:

    I’m curious, my bottle of VO5 says the product isn’t tested on animals?… are they are lying or what?

  • Avatar Megan Ladd says:

    I believe that Caudalie is now vegan and cruelty-free.

  • Avatar Kelsie says:

    I’m trying to figure out if Eucerin is actually not cruelty free. I see it on your list here but I’ve also seen it on their website that they don’t test on animals and haven’t since before 2004? That they use human testing And that they are trying to help get animal testing banned. So I’m just looking for clarity on this since it’s literally the only lotion I use that doesn’t make my skin more dry, and I can’t seem to find a good swap for it. Thank you!

  • Avatar Aurora says:

    HI! I have Made a resourch and I found that Yves Rocher doesn’t test on animals since 1989. Xoxo

  • Avatar Charlotte Freeman says:

    I don’t trust PETA

  • Avatar Audrey says:

    Wait I’m confused. I bought La Roche Posey whilst in Europe. Europe banned the sale of products with animal testing in 2013 in Europe or elsewhere. So why is the brand listed as not cruelty free?

  • Avatar Yes says:

    How do we get animal testing banned around the world? Its bullshit to get it banned in US but ok in China.

  • Avatar Britta says:

    Does anyone know if beautycounter is cruelty free?

  • Avatar Sofía says:

    Hello, according to Tony Moly’s official website “Do you test on animals?
    No, we do not! We love animals as much as we love you and would never test any of our products on them.” Is this true? I’ve been hearing so much mixed information about this brand, and I have no idea where is the proof behind any of the claims, can you help me?

  • Avatar Leshae says:

    So I was just in a dollar general and I noticed on the back of the EOS products, they now say “not tested on animals.” Does this mean they’ve now become cruelty free?

  • Avatar Sherri Burich says:

    Good to know. Procter & Gamble claim to be cruelty free, but many of their products still show up as being tested in animt!

  • Avatar V Shepp says:

    Can you please tell me if Sesderma, manufactured in Spain, tests on animals?

  • Avatar Ailu H says:

    What is going on with dove now?

  • Avatar Jill K says:

    I can’t find if this eyeliner on Amazon is cruelty free or not. Does anyone know? :

  • Avatar Melissa Pötgens says:

    Do you have any source material as to how you found out that certain companies are guilty of animal testing? Oriflame for example, is one of the founding companies that hasn’t done animal testing since 1967, as THEY claim. So seeing them on this list, makes me really curious to read any source material that says otherwise? I’ve been using Oriflame for years because of the fact that they claim they don’t test on animals, so if that’s a lie, I’d really love to read articles in which this comes forward.

    You said that Loreal has started hollowing the ethical path. But then why is it still in the list of companies that do animal testing (is it because of its policies for China only)

  • Avatar Laura Vick says:

    On the bottle of body wash I got from Bath and Body works it states “We do not test on animals” is this not true???

  • Avatar Emma Leiah says:

    I actually reached out to Bath and body works and they said they have never tested any of there products on animals and they have always been cruelty free in that regard, although they can’t guarantee that all there products are “vegan” based on ingredients differing from product to product. However they are cruelty free and even mentioned that the labels on there products even mention that they never test on animals as well.

    Not sure where you’re getting your information from as it seems all scattered. So i’m just going to assume you’re an uncredible blogger and skewing your facts to get more clicks on your page.

    It sucks because some of us genuinely want to know which brands are cruelty free and not, don’t make up nonsense and misguide people.

    • Suzana Rose Suzana Rose says:

      Did you ask them if they test on animals where required by law or allow third-parties to test on their behalf? This is their policy: “Bath & Body Works policy prohibits the testing of our branded products, formulations and ingredients on animals except in rare cases when required by government regulations. Through our involvement in the Institute for In Vitro Sciences, we are supporting research to develop alternative non-animal methods which we believe will ultimately result in the elimination of animal testing worldwide.”

      Translation: not cruelty-free. Victoria’s Secret is in the same boat and owned by the same parent company, and they’re on PETA’s list of companies who test on animals.

    DOES THYMES TEST ON ANIMALS?

    “We at Thymes do not test products on animals. We guarantee the safety of our products by using ingredients that have been used reliably for many years, along with effective amounts of preservatives common in cosmetics.

    I’m so mad at Avon! As I never went deeply into the subject, I always thought the company is cruelty free as there is a note that they do not test on anmimals, but that is not the same as cruelty free. Another thing, they provided a notice that they need to test their products in order to enter into the China market. These companies should vanish for misleading their customers.

  • Avatar Iggie says:

    Could you please confirm about Eucerin? I used use their products before I went cruelty free and was double checking now, just because they have some pretty unique products that used to work for me really well. Their website states that they are cruelty free and describes some of their research methods, but makes no mention of ingredients or disclaimer “unless required by law”? I am struggling to find out more info.

  • Avatar Donnie says:

    I have a question actually. I am totally 100% on board with cruelty free and I am trying to be more conscious of what I am supporting as far as my products go. However, how can pet food NOT be animal tested? I mean I know I personally would like my cat food to be cat-approved because that’s the only thing that makes sense. Also, how are diapers and tampons tested on animals? Some of these things on this list don’t have chemicals at all. So how does that work? Thanks in advance.

    Hi!
    I just want to say thank you for creating this list. I’ve always been conscious of using CF products but sometimes I’d be a bit slack and buy them because I either didn’t check or I just assumed they would be CF. However, as of this year I’m aiming to be completely CF but as you can tell from this list, it’s actually pretty difficult to find a brand that doesn’t test on animals! I’d love to be able to share a link to this post with my followers on my Instagram and blog, if that’s okay with you!

This is my current skincare preference but I’m trying to go Cruelty-Free for 2018. Thanks!!

  • Avatar Alan says:

    As everyone has the ability and option to improve themselves through choice and avoidance of negative influences, then it becomes a choice based on compassion for the animals used; a choice based on wanting humane and ethical treatment for helpless animals that do feel sensations and do suffer in pain. If one person can choose to not hurt an animal unnecessarily, then it is positive as a conscious choice for no animal testing to be done. There are better and different research testing methods that involve no animal testing and that would really help the cosmetics companies in the most ways to allow humane 21st Century advancement.

  • Avatar Chris says:

    One point. I would hope that pet food manufacturers do test on animals. After all it will be animals that eat it.

    Dog food should be tested using dogs
    Cat food should be tested using cats

    This of course after other non animal tests to establish that the food is appropriate in terms of nutrients etc.

Noticed L’occitaine are on there but they say ‘L’OCCITANE does not and has never tested its products, its active ingredients or its raw materials on animals at any point in the product development or manufacturing process’. Is it because they use products with Honey in? Might be worth removing from this list as although many vegans don’t consume honey, it’s not technically animal testing, rather using animal products. Just wanted to check that?

    A few days ago I was having a discussion with a couple of Nuskin distributers about the NuSkin animal testing statement they have on their website. Claiming they don’t test on animals, except when mandated by law and regulatory agencies, which in my option is very misleading. They sell to China, which in itself means they test on animals and I’m also led to believe some of the ingredients used in their products are also tested on animals. What was really sad, the distributors who where clearly brain-washed, claimed every product of Nuskin was natural, chemical free and not tested on animals. They more interested in their own vanity over animal welfare. They had no interest in understanding the truth and did not accept that Nuskin was listed on PETA’s website as a company who TEST on animals. In fact they claim PETA’s list is a lie!!!

  • Avatar Izzzz says:

    Hi Cruelty-Free Kitty,

    Thanks for the article. I was wondering which of the brands you have listed actively test on animals. For example NARS didn’t used to sell to China and didn’t test on animals, therefore was cruelty free. So if it wasn’t for China and their laws, if NARS sold there it would still be cruelty free. I’m not excusing them, I just wanted to know if any of them test on animals in the US, not in China.

  • Avatar Flor says:

    I am a bit confused. In their website, Kiehl’s say they are certified by PETA as cruelty free, and they have the leaping bunny. But they are still in this list of companies that test on animals. So what is really the case? Legally they can’t claim they are leaping bunny certified if that is not true.

  • Avatar Taylor says:

    I don’t think you’re being entirely fair to some of the companies listed. For example, look at what you have for some of the cosmetic companies, who clearly shouldn’t be on the list (according to Snopes: https://www.snopes.com/critters/cruelty/avontesting.asp). For someone searching for helpful and accurate cruelty-free information, your list is what seems to be cruel. Now I don’t now how much of your website I can really trust, although I was initially quite excited.

    • Suzi Scheler Suzi Scheler says:

      Hi Taylor. The website you linked to confirms that those companies still test on animals where required by law, hence why they’re not cruelty-free. This is the case for many companies on this list. If a company wants to sell cosmetics in China, they have to pay for animal testing being performed there, which means they’re not completely honest about “not testing on animals”.

    Hi, a friend of mine is just starting a consulting business with Rodan + Fields and I’d love to support her by trying their products, however, I’m having a very hard time finding out if their ingredients are animal tested. They say the products are not and that their formulas are not animal tested but are not directly answering about the ingredients, which leads me to believe they may be altering the wording to lead people to believe they are safe. Does anyone here have any information? This is what they replied to my inquiry (and my friend who is joining their company) when we wrote to them separately:
    “Rodan + Fields does not test its formulas on animals. We use alternate in-vitro methods, and voluntary compensated human subjects to verify the safety and efficacy of our formulations.”
    That sounds to me like they are referring to the finished product and avoiding the question about the product ingredients.

    Just wondering about Jurlique? Their policy on Animal Testing (http://www.jurlique.com.au/blog/animal-testing-policy)states that they actually don’t – “We do not test our cosmetic and therapeutic products on animals as part of our product development process, or outsource this activity to any third parties, nor have we ever included animal testing in our product development process in the past”. Is this true or not? Have they worded it to exclude other areas of testing? Just curious.

    They do say that it is law for products that are imported into China to be tested on animals and that this is done through 3rd party Chinese testers. Is this why they are on the “yes” list? In that case, any company who exports their products to China would be under the same obligation – which puts a bit of a different spin on it don’t you think? The company itself doesn’t test on animals, but in order to be able to export into China, the products are tested on animals before entering the market.

    I’m keen to know if Jurlique really do test on animals in any part of the manufacturing of the product.

    Hi. According Eucerin (from their official website):

    Research without Animal Testing at Eucerin:

    Eucerin does not use animals to test cosmetic products. This has been our policy since long before the directives regulating animal testing in cosmetics went into effect in the European Union in 2004. Convinced that using animals to test cosmetic products in order to prove that they are safe and effective is not necessary, we have worked successfully for more than 20 years with in-vitro alternatives to animal testing. Being a subsidiary of Beiersdorf, one of the well-known leading and accepted research companies around the world, we are actively advocating for the worldwide acceptance of existing animal test-free alternative methods by respective authorities. Furthermore, we strive to fill the gaps where alternative methods are not yet available, supporting those scientific efforts both in terms of personnel and financially.

    Please research this. This is not a black and white issue. For many US companies, the products made in the USA ARE cruelty free, but if they import from places like China, they must abide by government regulations. MANY of the companies listed in this ‘article’ have either cut back – or completely out – of importing from China and those that do have limited products so that what they import is NOT tested on animals. They have also introduced alternatives to animal testing in countries that still still require it and in many cases, the countries have listened and are using alternatives to animal testing. Check your facts before spreading stuff like this as a blanket statement. Not cool.

    Here’s a general guide to whether a product is tested on animals or not – if it’s made in China it IS tested on animals – it’s a legal requirement that products are tested on animals in China. This is not surprising considering they eat dogs and cats over there! So if it says made in China, it is definitely tested on animals and should be avoided. Don’t just check whether the company is cruelty free, check the country where it is made, and whether that country has laws that deem animal testing must legally be performed. And btw, thanks so much for this great list!!

I didn’t see anything about two of the components I use in my homemade laundry detergent, Fels Naptha (sp?) and Zote. Would they be listed under another brand name?

    I used to be an Avon rep too. I wish now I could undo that, and not just because of all the money I lost when they signed up too many reps for my tiny rural area and everyone had to compete to make a single sale. Not only was I selling products that were funding animal testing for Avon’s expansion into China, but the clothes, shoes, etc are made by women and children in sweatshops who are treated terribly and paid terribly. I love Avon bubble bath and (I know this sounds funny) their deodorant, but I’m just going to have to find alternatives.

    That’s all marketing PR…same blurb from MAC and any other company selling in China. If you buy something that tests in China, the money that you spend goes to the company. The company then has to pay the animal testing agency in China to get approval for sale, so yes, if you buy something in the US, Canada, or where ever, your purchases contribute to the funding of that animal testing. And yes, there is something they can choose to do, not sell in China, like all of the real cruelty-free companies choose to do. Fine if you choose to buy it or sell it, but don’t make false cruelty-free claims.

    If you’re buying your products from China, then you have a problem. If you’re buying them from Europe or USA, then they are CRUELTY FREE.
    You can blame the brand for what CHINA does with it.

    • Avatar Elisha says:

      Your analogy is faulty. Here’s one: Imagine you make cruelty-free soap, and somebody told you you could increase your profits 1000% by selling to China. You are totally aware that this would mean your products would be subject to animal testing, but you do it anyway because $$$. China’s the biggest market in the world, so who cares if a few bunnies have to die?

      These companies all know the ethical cost of doing business in China, and choose to do it anyway, as per the above example. How can you defend that?

    • Avatar Carolyn H says:

      Actually, you can blame the brand, because it is the brand who is paying an animal testing agency in China so their products can be approved for sale. Given that the Chinese market is probably just as big, if not bigger than that of Europe and North America combined, so it’s not like it’s a minute amount of products being tested, it’s more like half of all of the company’s products.

    Please update this and make sure your research is THOROUGH before posting.

    • Unfortunately this is incorrect.

      The full statement you’re quoting is: L’Oréal no longer tests on animals any of its products or any of its ingredients, anywhere in the world. Nor does L’Oréal delegate this task to others. An exception could only be made if regulatory authorities demanded it for safety or regulatory purposes.

      L’Oreal still tests on animals where required by law, meaning they’re not cruelty-free.

    • Avatar BeCompassionate says:

      “An exception could be made if regulatory authorities required it for safety or regulatory purposes.” This is right after their bolded statement in the link you provided.

      While they seem to be working toward being truly cruelty-free, they still sell in China. And mainland China still requires, at this time, animal testing. :/ So technically, they’re not cruelty-free. Sorry, Cinnamon Bun.

      Also, as a note, I’ve worked for manufacturers in the Health & Beauty industry. When a company includes vague statements like quoted above, you can bet your buns that they’re going to take advantage of the legal wiggle room those statements provide. If they didn’t, those statements wouldn’t even be there.
      Unfortunately, non-animal in-vivo testing is way more expensive than traditional animal testing, and these cosmetic mega-companies just don’t care about anything except their profit margins. 🙁 The only way it will change is when the consumer demands higher standards regarding their testing procedures. Which is why it comes down to our thorough understanding of current laws, in the US and globally, and our choices regarding what we will tolerate when it comes to animal torture.

  • Avatar Nikhi Janae says:

    It would be awesome if you labeled those which are sold in China with an asterisk or something as to why they are not cruelty-free. I’m only a transitioning vegan and while many here would still hate me for it, I’d still like to know which are “better” in that it’s China’s fault, not the company as a whole. (Yes I understand the company should still back out of China if they truly care, but it would just also be nice to know in general their stance.)

    Does proactive test on animals?

  • Avatar Suzanne Campbell-Foster says:

    This is a very misleading post. I can not stand up for all of these companies… but I can stand up for the one I work for. Mary Kay – USA does not test on animals. Most of our plants in other countries do not test on animals either. However, our plants in China do – because it is REQUIRED there by their laws… not because we choose to. In fact I am most certain that quite a few of these companies listed here are for that very same reason.

    • Avatar sophie says:

      its no excuse. they choose money and suffering of animals over sound moral stance and simply the humane choice

      • Avatar Get it straight. says:

        And the humane choice is to not to try and change the rules and regulations for product testing in China? It’s no excuse to try and to right someone’s wrong doing? A country that requires many companies’ products if not all of their own products to be tested on animals? How does testing in one single country change their moral stance? So cruel they must be to want to make an actual effort in the world.

    • Avatar Elisha says:

      This argument really baffles me – it’s not like these companies have been forced at gunpoint to sell in China? They do so because $$$, plain and simple. Profits before ethics. There are plenty of ethical brands that won’t touch China with a barge pole until its laws change, big profits be damned. THOSE are the brands I choose to support.

  • Avatar Space Truckin says:

    UNILEVER is set to buy Seventh Generation …… although UNILEVER is not listed here. Some of their products are. Such as SUAVE, SUNLIGHT, etc,. So once Seventh Generation is bought buy UNILEVER …… I will not buy Seventh Generation anymore.

    It is so frustrating to see some of the (actually almost ALL) of the top notch and my favorite brands such as YSL and Dior to be not cruelty-free.there are so many make up products that I love from these brands and now im discouraged because idk what to do if i have to switch out these products because there rlly isnt great dupes for it:((

  • Avatar Countess Palatine of Burgundy says:

    Avon has never tested on animals, i use to sell it! They pride themselves on not using animals products or testing on them. Dior uses natural scents in his perfumes and dose not need to test as his brand and many other ‘older classic brands’ listed here are tried and tested and dont test either. You should be careful not to spread gossip. In fact thanks to true campaigners to ban cruelty to animals has pretty much already succeeded as there are very few who can use animals in the creation and testing as it is a world wide ban now! ( in the west) Stay away from asia made products and stick to time tested european brands

  • Avatar Naoimh Neeve Rogers says:

    Benefit doesn’t actually test on animals, it just doesn’t claim to be cruelty free as it is possible a compound or something similar has been previously tested on animals by an external company. It says so in their FAQs on their website

  • Avatar Animal Loving Vegan says:

    Avon does test on animals. Even when they said they were not. They lied and were caught.They were outsourcing testing for decades and were in multiple lawsuits over misleading consumers. They are a horrible company just like L’Oreal and Proctor & Gamble. http://www.peta.org/action/action-alerts/avon-mary-kay-estee-lauder-and-revlon-are-paying-for-tests-on-animals/ and http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2110787/Avon-withdraws-animal-test-claims-website-complaints.html Urban Decay is not cruelty free, they are owned by the barbaric company L’Oreal who kills millions of animals throughout all it’s subsidiaries. If you buy a product that was cruelty free and is now owned by a company that isn’t. Then you are putting dollars in the pockets of the murderers. That includes Urban Decay, who is owned by L’Oreal.

  • Avatar angieb says:

    AMAZING COSMETICS does not test on animals. Your information is incorrect for that brand.

  • Avatar Hope says:

    I mean the laws in Europe ban testing cosmetics on animals, so my favourite French skincare brands Avène and Vichy can’t test on animals or outsource animals testing for products sold within Europe (I think that’s the law right now – correct me if I’m wrong)
    But I assume they sell products in China which requires animal testing on cosmetics, which really sucks because in the end it’s up to them where they sell their products. China is the biggest emerging market in the world, and in the end producers will go where there are masses of new consumers. China really does need to change it’s stance on cosmetic animal testing (and it’s stance on a lot of things *cough* human rights abuses *cough* the death penalty *cough*)
    Still I don’t know where I stand ethically by using these brands, the only brands I know will keep my skin clear and healthy and in a selfish way – allow myself to feel good – knowing that the products being sold to me have not been tested on animals in Europe, but may have been tested on animals in China. I guess I have a bit to think about now.

    • Avatar Sarah McLoughlin says:

      Hi Hope. I understand your dilemma. For me, as soon as I learned about how animals were treated in these tests that was it I couldn’t use any of those products any more. If a company doesn’t test in Europe or America but then does just to sell in China I think that’s unethical and I won’t have any part of it. A few years ago I started using essential oils and it opened up a whole new world for me in terms of skin care. Its not just about the essential oils but using completely natural and cheap products you probably have at home anyway to care for your skin. The toxins in these branded products are what are damaging your skin. I recently started a blog about the changes I make if you want to have a look let me know x

    • Avatar MelissaM says:

      It might take some time to find what works for you, but there are a LOT of truly cruelty free options, including ones that are great for very sensitive skin. I highly recommend checking out Paula’s Chouce. Their ingredients/ formulations are top notch, they use no fragrance or known irritants, & they have fab customer service w/ an easy return policy should anything not work out for you. They also offer consultations to help you figure out what will likely work best for your skin type/ issues of you ate overwhelmed by the choices available. I use a number of their products & at 37 my skin is the best it’s ever been. I truly cannot recommend them highly enough.

It’s so stupid that I spend my money on expensive animal brands !!! ?

  • Avatar Melissa Willford says:

    All product ingredients have to be tested before the FDA can approve it for human use, that’s just how it is and how it always has been. Even if the company is cruelty free, it just means they’re using ingredients that were tested by another company and proven safe by the FDA. So nothing is actually cruelty free.

We do not engage in animal testing, nor do we use animal-derived ingredients in any of our products. As leaders in the skincare science industry, we consider it our charge to continually innovate new and effective ways to test products without the use of animals, relying instead on advanced testing methodologies that are strictly cruelty-free. We thoroughly investigate each of the ingredients used in our products, selecting only the finest materials from facilities that measure their results with high-tech machinery instead of animals.” Or do they sell their products in China?

    Benefit does not test on animals. “Since 1989, the Perfumes & Cosmetics companies of LVMH group (including Benefit Cosmetics) have not performed any tests on animals

    ban set by the European Union. We are deeply committed to the
    elimination of animal testing.”

    Dr. JART DOESN’T test on animals. They are dermatologist tested, and majority of the line is Vegan. I work for the company. It’s cruelty free.

  • Avatar christine sanders says:

    a lot of brands who state they do not test on animals is because they themsleves are not testing (ie; Benefit) and they are hiring 3rd parties to carry out their testing, or they hire someone to hire someone to do it so they can claim they are cruelty free when infact they are not because they care more about profit, its all a marketing scam!! And it sucks that even brands like Nars who are “cruelty free” are owned by monster’s like Shiseido because in the end they are still reaping benefits. DIY or small Indie brands are they way to go!

    You can’t trust brand representatives because they usually dont know and you cant trust the packaging because its all cleverly worded to avoid technicalities, such as brands claiming to be all natural, for example Bare Minerals might have (some natural) options but they market themselves and claim a beautiful natural finish to make you believe its all natural.

    Animal testing is awful but I also believe animal derived ingriendents are, although the animal would rather be dead then in those cages. Who wants a cruelty-free lipstick made of dead beetles and sheeps wool/oil? Who wants a cruelty-free anti aging moisturizer with snake venom? (kate sommerville) Who wants a cruelty-free face masks with snail-secretions?

    What’s more misleading is that animal-derived ingredients are totally considered “natural”. So your natural cruelty-free brand is full of animal by-products and dead insects.

    Vegan is the most ethical choice! Even if you can’t fully commit make the difference when you can!

    I was just looking on google to see if Kerastase was cruelty free and a statement on their said that they haven’t done animal testing since the 80s. Just wondered if it doesn’t make it on the list because they export to countries who require testing on animals? Thanks!

  • Avatar B_unafraid says:

    I have just checked the website for L’Oreal – Kerastase range as I was discussing this with a friend today about whether they are Animal testing or not and I have found on the website that they are not animal testing since 1989.

    See below cut and pasted txt from the website and I will also attach the link below as well from the source.

    Why would they say that they don’t and you say they do, have you checked your facts or randomly selected massive chain companies to boycott!?

    I don’t work for any of these companies, just a civilian trying to purchase products that have not had animal cruelty.

    E.g Troy Bate’s below about Nutrimetics.

    Facts need to be straightened on this post about animal cruelty brands or I just want to know has this information been sourced properly before being posted.

    http://www.kerastase-usa.com/faqs.html#

    1. DOES KÉRASTASE TEST ON ANIMALS?

    We are happy to confirm that the L’Oréal group of companies, which includes Lancôme, Redken, Garnier, Ralph Lauren, Giorgio Armani, Biotherm, Kérastase, and Vichy, as well as L’Oréal, has carried out no animal testing since 1989 on the entire range of its products. This decision was undertaken within the framework of our fundamental objectives: to offer innovative products of high quality while ensuring their safety in use by our customers.

    • Avatar Elisha says:

      The link you’ve provided literally states that L’Oreal conducts animal testing: ‘An exception [to our no animal testing stance] could only be made if regulatory authorities demanded it for safety or regulatory purposes.’ It’s the classic deflection that ALL cruel companies make in order to appear CF when, in fact, they’re happy to expand their business to China (the biggest market in the world) because $$$. This is their statement in plain language: ‘Our products are animal-tested because we choose to sell in China, where animal testing is mandatory.’

  • To knowingly continue to use a product that you have found out to be tested on animals, is sheer evil.

  • Avatar Brooke Mckinney says:

    It would make sense, however a lot of the testing done is very abusive.. including tests where the animals are made to eat the food, then have their stomachs cut open to see what the food does to them internally. pet food that is not animal tested uses ingredients that they already know are not harmful, therefor do not need testing.

  • Avatar Katie M says:

    I think it boils down to where you are in the World and what your laws are. I try to stay is much cruelty free or leaping bunny free. But some products i’m sorry I will keep using, or until i find an alternative that is better or does the same. Trying to hurt ourselves to rather it is or isn’t is just to much time wasted, find it is better to each their own I try hard but sometime it’s not worth trying to find something different

  • Avatar Katie M says:

    to go with this… Places like china and others all test on animals it’s what they do, why because they have different laws and standards. Also goes for food and other products coming from there or factories that are there and sending it here

      ‘The only time they would ever test on animals again is if it is mandatory and they have no other choice’

      Most animal testing does not accurate show how it will affect a human. There have been many diseases cured in animals being tested that have not been able to cure humans.

You really think that all those chemicals the companies use that do test on animals is healthy?

      Very true. Companies that don’t care about the health and welfare of animals usually don’t care much about the health and welfare of humans, either. They only care about the bottom line, filling our homes and environment and bodies with toxic ingredients that are slowly killing us just to earn another dollar. As long as the people who run those companies are getting rich, what do we (or the animals, or the earth) matter? 🙁

  • Avatar Sharron says:

    Basically, if a cosmetics company states that they don’t test on animals, then I wouldn’t like to think they do as it has been illegal to test cosmetic products on animals anywhere in the EU since 2013! If the same company sells their stock in mainland China however, then they are not a cruelty free company as by law their products must be tested before being sold there so they are still enabling this unnecessary cruelty to take place, they all should really say ‘unless required by law’ in their policy and then we will know that means ‘we sell our products in China so we do test on animals’ but sadly they don’t as I have found out from research!

    So lots of research of beauty products for us all then until China change their law but websites like this make it soo much easier! : .))

    p.s. soo hard to find a nice perfume which is not sold in China as all the main brands do, anybody any ideas?

      Perfume is the sticking point for me, too! Sadly, I haven’t unearthed a single ‘designer’ brand that doesn’t sell in China or belong to a testing parent company (also important to me personally).

      Try Island Organic deodorant. It can be found on Amazon. My husband used to use Old Spice deodorant as well, said it was the only thing that worked for him. He happily uses the Island Organic now. I also use it and it is the only deodorant that has ever worked for me. After a few weeks of use, your body will detox from years of commercial deodorant/antiperspirant use and your natural smell should improve. I’m not ashamed to say that I am a woman that had very stinky pits and for years went from deodorant brand to brand trying to find one that would work, with no long term success. After switching to Island Organic, I can actually skip a day of deodorant and not kill anyone at the end of the day. Try it 🙂
