Coty Inc is one of the world’s largest fragrance companies and their portfolio also includes a number of makeup and skincare powerhouse brands like Rimmel, OPI, and philosophy.
Coty Inc’s Animal Testing Policy
“We do not perform, nor do we ever commission any third parties on our behalf to perform, testing of our products or ingredients on animals. The only exceptions are the very few countries where, by law, the regulatory authorities require us to submit our products or ingredients to them for testing on animals as a mandatory part of their regulatory protocols in compliance with their local regulations.” ~Coty Inc
According to Coty’s animal testing policy, it states that they test on animals in countries where it is required by law. Currently, China is the only country that requires cosmetics to be tested on animals. When I asked if any of Coty brands are available for sale in China, Coty responded, “China does carry alot of Coty products, as we are a world-wide company.”
However I found it extremely difficult to figure out which of their brands are sold in China as it isn’t clear on any of their websites. But many cruelty-free consumers choose to simply boycott all brands operating under Coty Inc as they feel their purchases will be financially supporting the parent company, Coty.
None of their brands are certified cruelty-free by a third party organization like Leaping Bunny or PETA so this alone may raise a red flag for some cruelty-free shoppers as no one else is regulating Coty’s animal testing policy other than the people trying to sell you their products.
