Is Lubriderm Cruelty-Free?
No, Lubriderm is not cruelty-free; Lubriderm products are tested on animals when required by law. Lubriderm is also owned by Johnson & Johnson, a corporation that is still testing on animals.
Lubriderm’s Animal Testing Policy (2019)
There is no information on Lubriderm’s website about their stance on animal testing. So I emailed Lubriderm and asked if they test on animals, this is Lubriderm’s response:
“We completely understand your concern, and we want you to feel confident in a brand that you use and trust. The fact is, Lubriderm® does not conduct animal testing of our products anywhere in the world, except in situations where governments or laws require it. We can assure you that we won’t ever compromise on the quality or safety of our products.”
Lubriderm claims they do not conduct animal testing, “except in situations where governments or laws require it.”
Unfortunately, this implies that Lubriderm is selling their products in situations or markets that require animal testing.
In the US, EU, Canada and in most parts of the world, do not require companies to test the safety or quality of their products on animals. Lubriderm is unfortunately conducting business in some parts of the world (possibly Mainland China, where animal testing is required by law for all imported cosmetics) or in certain situations that are requiring them to test on animals.
There is very limited public information about Lubriderm’s animal testing policy but because of their statement that Lubriderm products are tested on animals when the government or laws require it, is enough for us to classify Lubriderm as a brand that DOES test on animals and is NOT cruelty-free.
