Animal Testing

The brands below are grouped as follows: Those that DO NOT test on animals, those that DO test, and those whose animal testing status is unknown. We use the National Anti-Vivisection Society (NAVS) website ( as well as our team of independent researchers to determine the animal-testing status of each brand.

If an individual brand doesn’t test on animals, but their parent company does, we don’t mark the brand as one that tests on animals. We evaluate each company individually and leave the final choice up to you in terms of where you prefer to draw the line.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT COSMETICS IMPORTED TO AND SOLD IN CHINA: The Chinese government requires animal testing on all imported cosmetics sold from a physical storefront within mainland China. So, a brand that retails there (in an actual store, not exclusively online) must agree to this third-party testing even though they may not test on animals themselves or endorse this practice in any other country.
