NeoStrata is a skincare company offering a range of ‘clinically-proven, dermatologist developed skin care brands’. They have four different brands: NeoStrata, Exuviance, CoverBlend, and Psorent.
Unfortunately NeoStrata and their subsidiary brands cannot guarantee that their ingredients were not tested on animals by their suppliers and therefore should not be considered cruelty-free.
Here is NeoStrata’s animal testing policy taken directly from their website:
“NeoStrata Company, Inc. endeavors to use raw materials that have not been tested by animals. However, NeoStrata Company, Inc. cannot guarantee that all of its raw material suppliers do not conduct any animal testing.”
For companies to be considered cruelty-free and not tested on animals, they must ensure that none of their products and ingredients are tested on animals at all stages of production and unfortunately NeoStrata is unable to do this with their ingredient suppliers.
In addition, NeoStrata also has a Chinese website and it looks like they have some sort of office or distribution centre in Shanghai. Companies selling their products in China are required by law to test their products on animals.
