I can confirm that Elemis do not and never have tested any of our products on animals, I can provide you with the following information regarding this.

Animal Testing Policy

Elemis Ltd has always been against animal testing. Elemis has never and will never test on animals. Nor has Elemis ordered such tests by any third parties.

Elemis specialises in natural caring ingredients of the highest quality and safety. All finished products have been extensively tested over time, on our own staff, human volunteers and or by non-animal laboratory trials.

The European Cosmetic Directive banned all animal testing of finished products from September 2004 and ingredients used within products from March 2009. They enforce this directive and dictate what is safe and what’s not. Elemis strongly supports this position and will do everything possible to keep driving non-animal testing alternatives and always approach development in an ethical manner.

We do not use slaughterhouse waste in any of our products. None of our perfumes contain animal extracts and we do not use whale or blubber oils. We do make use of honey, beeswax, milk, milk whey and eggs.

We continue to work alongside partners and suppliers who share our beliefs and who approach their day-to-day operations in an ethical manner, purchasing accordingly.

Elemis wishes to contribute to your well-being by promoting safe, high quality spa and skincare products, with ease of mind and conscience.

Animal Testing Policy Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Do we operate a fixed cut-off date for ingredients tested on animals?

A. The European Cosmetic Directive has set a fixed cut-off date of March 2009. The majority of ingredients in the marketplace launched well before this date and will have been tested on animals at some point in their lifetime, maybe decades ago. It is impossible to remove all of these products from the marketplace. Our position on this is in line with other cruelty free organisations, that we will endeavour to choose the safest, most ethical ingredients possible and help drive non-animal testing alternatives.

In relation to your comments regarding our packaging, I will ensure that they are noted and passed on to our Marketing Department for their reference.  I can assure you that we take all customer feedback extremely seriously whether it be positive or negative and do use this feedback to guide our future decisions.  Your comments are therefore appreciated.

Hi Lilla,

Thank you for your inquiry about Julep products. We absolutely DO NOT test on animals! Never have, never will! We only “test” on humans. One of the great things about Julep is we have 4 Nail Parlors and amazing customers that let us test and try products on them all the time! Some of our products do contain animal-derived ingredients (milk, beeswax, etc). Here are some products that are VEGAN: Facial for Hands Glycolic Hand Scrub, Julep Essential Cuticle Oil, and any non-red nail polish.

Another great thing about our products is that they are “4 Free”. Unlike some other nail polish brands, our formula does not contain 4 of the most harmful chemicals commonly found in nail polish. We use NO paraben, NO sulphate phthalate, NO DBP, and they are tolene and formaldehyde FREE. We like to say that we took out all of the nasty carcinogens that are found in so many other products.

We hope this convinces you even more how Julep can be a brand you will be proud to wear. Please do not hesitate to follow up with us if you have any other questions or concerns. Until next time, have a wonderful day Lilla!

Kao Brands

We are pleased to inform you that Kao Brands does not use animals to test any of our products. We closely examine all ingredients and products before they go on the market to ensure that all products meet the safety expectations outlined in the PCPC Consumer Commitment Code, US FDA and EU regulations, and many other recognized regulatory agencies. Additionally, current plans do not include the use of animals in the development of new products.

Kate Spade

thank you for contacting kate spade new york.

thank you for contacting kate spade to ask about our animal testing policies. here’s the scoop: we don’t test our products on animals and it’s been our policy to ban the use of animal-derived ingredients in any our cosmetic products.

we also ensure our cosmetic division only orders from suppliers whose materials are already in use and have proven to be safe. if there are any hiccups with the ingredients, we avoid them and therefore avoid new testing.oOn another style note, we safety test our products through an outside agency (not affiliated with kate spade) to make sure everything is safe for people, too. we want to make sure there’s no potential for irritation or sensitization. if it doesn’t pass, we go back and rework it before putting it on the shelves.

 thanks for taking the time to ask us about this important topic!


Dear Ms Heins

Thank you for your enquiry about Lipcote.  Lipcote has not been tested on
animals.  The law caught up with our policy some years ago too and it is not
permitted to test any cosmetics on animals in the EU.

I hope this answers your question and sets your mind at rest.

Kind regards

Ben Woodward

Living Proof

Thank you for contacting us, we really appreciate it! Like most beauty companies these days, we do not test our products on animals nor do we ask any of our suppliers to do so on our behalf.  We do not have animal byproducts in our formulas. I hope that this helps.

Dear Mrs. Heins,

Thank you for your request which implies your interest in Misslyn products.

Misslyn is part of the ARTDECO cosmetic group.

This is Misslyn’s attitude towards animal testing:

Misslyn does not conduct any tests on animals for its cosmetic products nor does it have any animal testing performed on its behalf.

Animal testing for decorative cosmetic products has been prohibited under the German Animal Welfare Act since 1986. Tests on animals for all cosmetic finished products have been banned since 1998.

A corresponding ban has been in place since March 2011 for cosmetic raw materials as well, which Misslyn expressly welcomes.

Pursuant to this legislation, raw materials developed for use in cosmetics may no longer be tested for compatibility on animals.

Raw materials developed for cosmetics before this time point were not necessarily tested on animals. However, some of them were tested using in-vivo experiments (tests on animals).

In order to conduct all future testing of raw materials exclusively by means of in-vitro tests (test tube experiments), these procedures are being continuously further developed and new methods researched.  Misslyn has no knowledge of the raw materials used in products being tested with in-vivo tests.

In order to minimize incompatibilities, Misslyn conducts internal application tests or patch tests (epicutaneous tests) used to determine the local compatibility of a product.

Misslyn is against animal testing.

Motives Cosmetics

Market America does not conduct or commission animal testing of any ingredient or finished product. We may, however, reference animal studies that support ingredient benefits performed by third parties and available to the industry. The fact that a study supports an ingredient claim, does not mean we have participated in, supported or commissioned the study.


Thank you for your interest in Mustela. We can assure you, in accordance with the European regulations in force relating to cosmetic products, Mustela products are not tested on animals.

nails Inc

With regard to the concern on animal testing, we can confirm that we test no product or raw materials on animals.  To the best of our knowledge this is also the position of all of our industrial suppliers.


NARS does not conduct any animal testing for any of its products. Additionally, NARS never has engaged in animal testing.

Napoleon Perdis

Napoleon Perdis products are not tested on animals. Napoleon Perdis does not condone nor support the idea of animal testing for cosmetic purposes; nor do we employ anyone to test on our behalf

PZ Cussons Beauty

Thank you for your email and for your interest in our Charles Worthington products.

We are happy to inform you that we can definitively confirm that PZ Cussons Beauty LLP do not test any products on animals, nor do we have any testing conducted by third parties on our behalf.

In the United Kingdom animal testing has not taken place on cosmetic products since 1997, nor have their ingredients since 1998. However, even before these dates PZ Cussons Beauty LLP did not test products on animals due to a voluntary industry initiative which led to all licences for such testing being withdrawn. In the European Union, a complete ban on the testing of cosmetic products on animals was introduced by the European cosmetic legislation in September 2004. This reinforced the voluntary action by the European industry to seek alternatives.

PZ Cussons Beauty LLP also supports the fund for replacement of animals in medical testing organisation ( FRAME is dedicated to the development of new and valid methods that will replace the need for laboratory animals in medical and scientific research, education, and testing.

Rene Furterer

Since September, 2004, animal testing on cosmetic final products has been forbidden in Europe, and since René Furterer products are produced in France, no animal testing is performed on any final cosmetic products. In addition, it is forbidden to market cosmetic products which were previously tested on animals in Europe. Our company is dedicated to developing alternative methods to animal testing. Our final products tolerance and effectiveness are evaluated in-vitro (laboratories) and in-vivo (on volunteer individuals).

Rita Hazan

We do not test on animals. At this time, we do not sell our products overseas due to export compliances regulations.

Good morning, Lilla, and thank you for your interest in SpaRitual!  Our entire line is 100% vegan, which means our formulations do not contain any animal by-products and none of the ingredients we use are tested on animals.  Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Surratt Beauty

To answer your question, we do not test on animals.


Since 1985, our goal at TIGI Linea, L.P. (TIGI) has been to supply the highest quality hair care and cosmetic products to beauty salons, beauty supply stores, and cosmetology academies throughout the world.  Our manufacturers supply us with the finest ingredients for these hair care and cosmetic products.

An important part of our goal has always been to adhere to the highest industry standards in the manufacture and sale of our hair care and cosmetic products, most importantly-no animal testing.  We can assure you that TIGI and all of our manufacturers have never tested TIGI’s finished products on animals.

Additionally, TIGI is the owner of the trademarks BED HEAD® and Catwalk®, as well as over 160 other registered trademarks for specific products worldwide.  You have our assurance that none of our trademarked hair care and cosmetic products are tested on animals.

Here is a paragraph explaining why it doesn’t state our policy on our products:

The latest amendment (7th amendment) of the European Regulations bans the claim of “Not Tested on Animals” on any cosmetic product. The only way we could claim “Not Tested on Animals” is by having substantiation from our manufacturers, their raw suppliers and the suppliers of the raw suppliers that the ingredients are not and have never been tested on animals, making it impossible for cosmetic companies and TIGI to track that information down.  We removed the claims we had on the bottles to ensure that there was no misrepresentation.  In the United States there is not a law about animal testing but it is impossible to make these claims having an international package.  For this reason, we can only guarantee by request that TIGI and our manufacturers do not test on animals.

Ulta Brand

Thank you for your email regarding our policy with animal testing. We do not test our products on animals and we are a recommended store by PETA.

We are proudly included in PETA’s (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) cruelty-free program. For example, the bristles for our natural brushes are acquired from hair clippings ? without harm to the animals.
Additionally, Youngblood supports the environment. Most of the packaging is made from recyclable materials, and our cartons are produced on Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified stock with soy ink. The FSC also certifies the black wooden handles on our brushes.

Does Youngblood offer gluten-free and vegan products?

Gluten-free consumer goods do not contain ingredients derived from wheat, barely or rye. Youngblood is pleased to offer gluten-free products, with the exception of Lipstick and Mineral Lash Prime.
We do not use any animal by-products in our formulas (with the exception of beeswax and carmine).

Victoria’s Secret

Victoria’s Secret does not test its products on animals, nor does it request any of our third party manufacturers, or anyone else, to perform such tests on its behalf.  We utilize ingredients in our formulations that are judged safe, and we do not ask the supplier of those ingredients to perform any such tests on animals.

Victoria’s Secret does not use any animal byproducts in its formulations where the animal is either slaughtered or harmed for the sole purpose of obtaining that material.  We do condone the use of animal derived products where the animal is not harmed; for example, lanolin, milk, eggs, etc.



Thank you for your interest in our products! Art of Beauty does not test on animals. Zoya Nail Polishes and treatments are vegan friendly, as well. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Have a nice day!

  1. Right here is the perfect webpage for anyone who wishes to understand this topic.
    You understand so much its almost hard to argue
    with you (not that I personally will need to…HaHa). You definitely
    put a brand new spin on a subject that’s been discussed for many years. Great stuff, just great!

  2. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    • I’m using WordPress… It is quite helpful and there are a lot of different themes and extras you can use, but it can be a bit slow to use and sometimes formatting goes weird. Hope that was helpful, and good luck with your blog!

  3. I just want to say I’m new to blogging and site-building and truly enjoyed your web blog. Very likely I’m planning to bookmark your blog post . You definitely have outstanding writings. With thanks for sharing your web site.

  4. Great work! This is the type of information that
    are meant to be shared across the internet. Shame on Google for now not positioning this submit upper!
    Come on over and talk over with my web site . Thank you =)

  5. while a lot of the companies are not tested on animals they could be owned by a parent company that does test of animals for example nars…… or they dont test theyre products on animals but they sell in china lik e the sephora brand whish requires them to test on animals

  6. Hey! I have reasently startet with not jusing animal-tested stuff, and I wondering if you knew if Bioderma test on animals or not? I have searched for a long time, but some say they test and some say they don’t.
    Can you help me?:)

    • So I didn’t find any mention of them in the PETA Don’t Test list and they are (I believe) producing their products in Europe, which should mean they are forbidden to test on animals within the EU. However, they could still sell to China or test outside the EU. I think I have also tried contacting them before, but I cannot find a response. I have just contacted them now, so we’ll see!

  7. Pingback: Hourglass make up | CC

  8. Many of these companies say their products aren’t tested – nothing about ingredients. Do you ask any of them about that?

  9. I contacted Batiste and they ARE NOT cruelty free. “We seek to use only materials already known to be safe, and we avoid animal testing whenever complete and satisfactory information exists to show that our products are safe. As a result of these policies, animal testing has become a last resort, and Church & Dwight has experienced considerable success avoiding such testing through this practice, especially on our Consumer Products.”

      • I forgot to report back on what they said! Here’s the Algenist reply from Feb 2015. So sad; I take this to mean that their products may in fact be tested in China. If someone can confirm for me otherwise that would be awesome but without knowing more, I’m not buying them anymore. 😦


        Thank you for your interest in Algenist! Algenist is an animal-friendly skincare line that does not conduct animal testing on its products. Algenist products are sold in China, through our licensed reseller Sephora (Algenist does not sell products directly to the markets in China).

        Algenist is committed to eliminating animal testing. Innovative solutions are core to our brand and these solutions do not start or stop with a finished product. We are committed to the entire process of product development- from R&D, to production, to how products are brought to market. Ethical practices and procedures are important to us in every step of the value chain, and we believe in finding new, innovative solutions to product and ingredient testing. To that end, we do not conduct animal testing, nor ask others to test on our behalf, unless demanded by the government or regulatory processes to do so. We evaluate our finished products in clinical tests on volunteer panels. Algenist fully supports the development and global adoption of non-animal testing practices.
