Fresh offers a complete product range of natural skin care, perfumes and fragrances, makeup, cosmetics, hair care, candles and soaps. But is Fresh considered a cruelty-free brand or does Fresh test on animals?
Unfortunately, it turns out that Fresh does test on animals when required by law and cannot be considered a cruelty-free brand.
When you read Fresh’s animal testing policy off of their website’s FAQ page, it says
We do not test our products on animals nor do we permit others to do so except where it is required by law.
Is Fresh Selling in China?
In the US, testing cosmetics and ingredients on animals is not required by law. So in what circumstance is Fresh “required by law” to test on animals? Well, Mainland China requires all imported cosmetics to be tested on animals before they’re allowed to sell within their country.
This leads us to ask, does Fresh sell any of their products in Mainland China?
Fresh is NOT Cruelty-Free!
Sadly, this doesn’t look good for Fresh considering all imported cosmetics into Mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals and by Fresh choosing to sell in these stores, they must consent and agree to have their products/ingredients subject to animal tests.
