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 Dr. Brandt Skincare Cruelty-Free?

Is Dr. Brandt Skincare cruelty-free?


No. Dr. Brandt Skincare is not cruelty-free. Their products are tested on animals in countries that require animal testing, like Mainland China.

Dr. Brandt’s Animal Testing Policy

Dr. Brandt Skincare claims to be a “cruelty-free-oriented organization” which is a misleading label and is a prime example of how there is very little meaning and regulation to the use of the label “cruelty-free”.

Did you know? There are no standard definitions or regulations to what qualifies a product or company to be labelled as “Cruelty-free”. That means, cruelty-free can mean whatever users want it to mean!

In the case with Dr. Brandt, they claim that they are not doing the animal testing themselves so that’s why they call themselves “a cruelty-free-oriented organization” however they are having others test their products on animals for them.

Since Dr. Brandt has decided to sell their products in Mainland China, they must pay and consent to have their products tested on animals first. “In those cases, the national governments conduct their own tests of our products – we do not and will never test on animals ourselves.”

I think Dr. Brandt can do better than that. They can choose not to sell in China and therefore no one needs to test any of their products on animals.

Source: Dr. Brandt’s Online Store Locator

Using Dr. Brandt Skincare’s online store locator feature, I was able to find a number of stores throughout China that carries their products. This is evidence that Dr. Brandt is selling their products in Mainland China where animal testing is required by law for all imported cosmetics.

Therefore I would not consider Dr. Brandt Skincare to be cruelty-free.
