Blueland is Cruelty-Free

Blueland has confirmed they do not test their products or ingredients on animals or ask others to test on their behalf. Their suppliers also do not test on animals, nor do they allow their products to be tested on animals when required by law.

By our standards, we would consider Blueland to be Cruelty-Free.

“At Blueland, our products are all cruelty-free, and there is no animal testing done meaning no animal was harmed in the creation of our products.”

Cruelty-Free Policies

Note that there is no legal definition for the label ‘Cruelty-Free.’ It can mean different things to different people. But Cruelty-Free is generally used to imply no animal testing. More specifically, the ingredients, formulation, or finished product are not tested on animals at any stage of product development.

At ethical elephant, we always assess a company’s cruelty-free policy using our Cruelty-Free Checklist. This ensures no animal testing was performed by the brand itself, its suppliers, or any third parties.

Also, note that Cruelty-Free and Vegan don’t always mean the same thing.

Is Blueland Vegan?

⭐️ Blueland is NOT an entirely vegan brand. But Blueland offers some vegan options that are free of animal products.

How to know which of Blueland’s products are vegan?

Blueland states in its FAQ that all of their formulations are vegan, however, it should be noted that Blueland sells wool dryer balls which are not vegan.

Are Blueland products vegan?
Our formulations only use vegan ingredients and are not made from animal byproducts.”

Vegan Policies

Similar to ‘Cruelty-Free,’ there is no standard or legal definition for the label ‘Vegan.’ But it usually means no animal-derived ingredients or animal by-products.

Some household cleaning products contain animal-based surfactants and solvents. 

Unless it’s clearly stated the surfactants and solvents are plant-based or plant-derived, it’s sometimes difficult to know with certainty whether a product is vegan just by reading the ingredient list.

So it’s best to ask the company and manufacturers to ensure the ingredients they’ve chosen to use were from non-animal sources.

Where are Blueland’s products made?

Blueland states on its website,

Where are Blueland products made?
Our tablets are developed and manufactured in the United States. Our Forever Bottles are designed in the United States and responsibly manufactured in China. We are proud to have worked closely with Cradle to Cradle from the inception of our company to receive the Platinum Material Health Certificate.”

I hope this article helped you to understand Blueland’s cruelty-free and vegan status and by choosing cruelty-free together, we can help end animal testing once and for all!

  1. I was checking Blueland products and they have a Wool Ball. I wish they were 100% vegan, but I don’t think they are 🙁

    1. Aww shucks. You’re right! They do have wool dryer balls now. I’ve removed the ‘100% Vegan’ label from any mention of Blueland to avoid any further confusion. Thanks so much for catching that!
