REN does not test on animals. The company is also currently found on PETA’s cruelty-free list, and is not sold in China. Here’s my correspondence with a representative:

Thank you for your email.
We do not test any of our products on animals. Our products are not tested on animals on our behalf by any third party.
It is unfortunately the case that every ingredient used in all skincare products (even those that are BUAV approved) would have been tested on animals at some point in the past by the ingredient supplier prior to the ingredient being licensed for use in cosmetic products.
However, we are delighted to report that the European Commission has implemented a marketing ban on any cosmetic products that have been tested on animals or contain ingredients that were tested on animals after 11th March 2013. This means that any products that are tested on animals after this date or contain ingredients that were tested on animals after this date are now banned from sale in the EU.
Finally, I can confirm that our products are not sold in China.
Hope this has helped. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
