Is First Aid Beauty Cruelty-Free and Vegan?

First Aid Beauty (FAB) offers a range of skincare products targeted for people with sensitive skin and specific skin issues like eczema, dry skin, and acne but is First Aid Beauty cruelty-free and vegan?

Is First Aid Beauty Cruelty-Free?

First Aid Beauty is Cruelty-free! None of First Aid Beauty’s ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.

However, it should be noted that First Aid Beauty is owned by P&G, a parent corporation that does test on animals when required by law.

First Aid Beauty Animal Testing Policy

On First Aid Beauty’s website, they claim “At First Aid Beauty, we love animals. That’s why we are committed to being a 100% cruelty free company. We have not, do not and will not conduct any testing of ingredients or finished products on animals. Furthermore, we only work with business partners who certify compliance with our policy.”

First Aid Beauty’s animal testing policy is a great start to making sure no animal testing happens during any stage of product development and manufacturing, however, I wanted to know if First Aid Beauty allows other third parties to test on their behalf, and if their suppliers test on animals, as well as, if they sell their products in China or any other country that may require animal testing.

I reached out to First Aid Beauty and received the following response:

“First Aid Beauty does not test our products on animals, nor do we test the raw ingredients on animals. We do not have a third party testing on our products and ingredients. FAB does not sell our products in China.”

I was very pleased by the response I received from First Aid Beauty however I wanted to also ensure their raw material suppliers were not testing on animals as well.

So a follow-up email was required where I received further clarifications about First Aid Beauty‘s process in verifying that their raw material suppliers do not test on animals.

“First Aid Beauty’s raw material suppliers do not test on animals. First Aid Beauty went through a rigorous certification process with our suppliers in order to ensure that the ingredients bought and used by our suppliers were not tested on animals.  Each supplier signed a certificate which states that the ingredients used by our suppliers are cruelty free.”

First Aid Beauty is included on our List of Cruelty-Free Brands.

You can find First Aid Beauty products at Sephora, Ulta, and Amazon.

First Aid Beauty Acquired by P&G

In 2018, P&G acquired First Aid Beauty. P&G is not a cruelty-free corporation and admits to testing on animals when required by law.

Even though First Aid Beauty is now owned by P&G, First Aid Beauty remains committed to not testing any of their products or ingredients on animals throughout their supply chain.
