โ€œItโ€™s not about being perfect! And we donโ€™t know any vegans who walk around saying that they are, or that they cause zero harm. Veganism doesnโ€™t mean causing ZERO harm (that would be delusional)... but it definitely means causing a lot less of it!! And causing LESS harm than before (before being vegan) is definitely worth celebrating and continuing to advocate for.

Donโ€™t let the vegan haters get you down. Usually the people pointing their fingers and trying to find a flaw in veganism are the ones who simply donโ€™t understand it or donโ€™t know what it takes to stand for something.โ€ (Words by @vegan_boss, ๐Ÿ“ธ via @unmeatfuture)

Is Bioderma Cruelty-Free? (2019)

Bioderma is best known for their micellar cleansing water but first, I wanted to know, does Bioderma test on animals in 2019?

Is Bioderma Cruelty-Free?

Unfortunately, Bioderma is not cruelty-free in 2019. Bioderma does test on animals when required by law.

Bioderma Animal Testing Policy (2019)

I wasn’t able to find any statements on Bioderma’s website about their stance on animal testing in 2019.

I was aware Bioderma is a French brand but didn’t realize the extent of Bioderma’s international presence and distribution. Bioderma is widely available around the globe but the country on their list that caught my eye was China.

China still requires all imported cosmetics to be tested on animals before beauty brands are allowed to sell their products in China. So, what’s the deal with Bioderma?

Bioderma products available internationally, including in China
Bioderma products are sold in China where animal testing is still required by law in 2019

I emailed Bioderma to inquire about their policy on animal testing while selling their products in China and sadly, Bioderma admits to selling in China stating, “Bioderma sells certain products in China… the Chinese authorities can decide, on their own, to test beauty products themselves before allowing them to be sold in their country. But we don’t interfere in any way in the process and this is under no circumstances our will…”

Below is the response I received from Bioderma:

“Thank you for your interest in Bioderma.

For the development of its cosmetics products, Bioderma does not test on animals. In addition, every product respects a rigorous formulation chart, guaranteeing the greatest dermatological security.

Bioderma sells certain products in China and we can assure you that they have not been tested on animals and never will be.

However, the Chinese authorities can decide, on their own, to test beauty products themselves before allowing them to be sold in their country. But we donโ€™t interfere in any way in the process and this is under no circumstances our will, in our values or our responsibility.”

Unfortunately, we do not consider Bioderma to be cruelty-free as Bioderma products are sold in China. Even though Bioderma is well aware of China’s mandatory animal testing requirements, they continue to distribute their products there. Bioderma is not cruelty-free.

What do you think?
