Is Antipodes Cruelty-Free?
Antipodes is Cruelty-free! None of Antipodes’ ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
Antipodes Animal Testing Policy
Antipodes has confirmed they do not test their products or ingredients on animals or ask others to test on their behalf. Their suppliers also do not test on animals nor do they allow their products to be tested on animals when required by law. And finally, their products are not sold in stores in mainland China or any other country that may require animal testing.

Is Antipodes Sold in China?
All imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals. However, Antipodes has confirmed they do not sell their products in retail stores in mainland China and therefore they are not required to test on animals.
“We don’t sell in stores in mainland China as you must test on animals (which we would never do), therefore our only way around this is to sell online via Chinese platforms which sells cross border parcel to parcel.”
You can find Antipodes cruelty-free products on Amazon.
Is Antipodes Vegan?
