Is Antipodes Vegan?

Is Antipodes Cruelty-Free?

Antipodes is a cruelty-free brand. Antipodes does not test any of their products or ingredients on animals.

Antipodes Animal Testing Policy

I couldn’t find any information regarding Antipodes’ animal testing policy on their website so I emailed Antipodes and they responded with the following:

“We can confirm that Antipodes product range is free from animal testing.  All Antipodes products are Vegetarian Society Approved. We never test our skincare on animals, and there’s no cross-contamination during the production process. All our products are free from any animal ingredient resulting from slaughter, and free from genetically modified organisms (GMOs). We don’t use any animal by-products except honey, which is accepted and eaten by vegetarians because honeybees must make honey to live.

Antipodes® is thrilled to announce that its scientifically validated and certified organic premium natural skincare and makeup has been awarded official vegan status by the Vegetarian Society of the United Kingdom, the oldest and most respected vegetarian
organisation in the world.

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.”

I was thrilled to hear that Antipodes does not test their skincare products on animals and they do not sell in China because of the country’s mandatory animal testing laws.

It’s also amazing news to hear some of Antipodes’ products were recently accredited vegan with the Vegetarian Society.

In a follow-up response, Antipodes confirmed to me that their ingredients are not tested on animals, they do not ask or hire third parties to test on their behalf, and their raw material suppliers are certified by the Vegan Society UK.

Therefore I am happy to add Antipodes to our list of cruelty-free brands!

Not all of Antipodes products are vegan as they do use honey in some of their products. Antipodes does offer some vegan skincare products.
