is Dior tested on animals?

Dior makeup, skincare, and fragrances are unfortunately not cruelty-free and Dior confirmed that their products are tested on animals when required by law. Dior is also owned by LVMH.

Below you will find an email response from one of their reps in regards to Dior’s animal testing policy and how their products are sold in China where it is required by law that all imported cosmetics be tested on animals in order to sell in their country:

Dear Valued Customer,

We do not test our products on animals nor do we permit others to do so except where it is required by law.  We are deeply committed to the elimination of animal testing and we are playing a leading role in developing alternative methods through our support of the “Fund for Alternatives to Animal Testing”  in the United States and the Opal Program in France.

*Yes, we sell our products to China.

Until China changes their mandatory animal testing laws, any cosmetic brand that sells their products in China is not considered cruelty-free.

    thanks for the above Information. I will try Hourglass and Anastasia Beverly Hills then. Cruelty free products are also from Miomojo and I love those purses, back packs etc. Have a great day.

    Hi Vicky
    I’m confused about Dior. If you could please clarify. Does it mean that it’s better avoid buying any dior beauty product if you’re against testing on animals
    Thank you

      Hi Amel,

      Yes, Dior cosmetics are sold in Mainland China where they are required by Chinese laws to have their products tested on animals and therefore Dior is a brand that unfortunately test on animals.

      In my opinion, if you are against animal testing then I would buy from another brand that is cruelty-free instead! =) If you like luxury cruelty-free brands, I’d recommend Hourglass and Anastasia Beverly Hills which you can find at Sephora! =)

        Thanks for your information. I can’t believe that in this day in age we have not progressed in not testing on animals. I will no longer suppport those companies that deal with Mainland China on any product. The more we refuse to accept this barbaric act of testing will we treat others with respect. These animals are not ours to test on @ I hope everyone opens their eyes to these Neanderthal way of doing business. I wil not spend my money to endorse animal testing no matter where it is in this country or outside. Animal lover.

  • […] and even then I could never get a straight answer from my superiors on the subject. According to Ethical Elephant, Dior is guilty in the same respects as most that I am finding out, in that they sell to China […]
