Is Aesop Cruelty-Free?
Aesop is cruelty-free;
Aesop’s Animal Testing Policy (2019)
On Aesop’s website, they claim they do not test their products or ingredients on animals and they do not commission any external parties to conduct
In addition, Aesop confirmed to me that none of their products are sold in-stores in Mainland China, therefore, they are not required to test on animals as per China’s animal testing laws.
Please note, Aesop products are sold in-stores throughout Hong Kong however Hong Kong does not require cosmetics to be tested on animals by law. Aesop explains this by stating, “Before we consider entry into a new country we extensively review the regulatory requirements to ensure that compulsory animal testing on our products is not required.”
Therefore I am happy to add Aesop to our list of cruelty-free brands!
Is Aesop Vegan?
Aesop is 100% vegan; none of their products contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.
Below is a screenshot I took from Aesop’s website, they state “no animal-derived ingredients (such as beeswax, honey or lanolin) are used in the Aesop range of formulations.”
