Some motivational words to help...

Is Cetaphil Cruelty-Free in 2019? | Does Cetaphil Test on Animals?

This post may contain affiliate links.

Cetaphil is a skincare brand specializing in products for sensitive, dry and/or acne-prone skin but is Cetaphil cruelty-free in 2019?

Is Cetaphil Cruelty-Free?

Cetaphil is not cruelty-free in 2019; Cetaphil products are tested on animals when required by law and Cetaphil products are also sold in China where animal testing is mandatory for all imported cosmetics.

It should be noted that Cetaphil is owned by Galderma, a pharmaceutical company (owned by L’Oreal and Nestle) and are required by law to test on animals in 2019.

Cetaphil Animal Testing Policy (2019)

Cetaphil’s website states, “Cetaphil does not test any of its products on animals.”

And on Cetaphil’s Canadian website, it states “In Canada, Cetaphil products are not tested on animals.”

However, this is not enough information for us to classify Cetaphil to be cruelty-free. Cetaphil products may not be tested on animals, but what about their ingredients? Cetaphil may not be testing their products on animals, but are they asking others to test on their behalf? And finally, Cetaphil products may not be tested on animals in Canada, but are Cetaphil products tested on animals elsewhere in the world?

Below is a screenshot of what is currently stated on Cetaphil’s US and Canada’s website:

Cetaphil Cruelty-Free Claims in 2019
Cetaphil Cruelty-Free Claims in 2019

It should be noted that Cetaphil is owned by Galderma, a pharmaceutical company where all pharmaceutical products are required by law and regulations to be tested on animals. Galderma is not a cruelty-free corporation.

In addition, when I tried asking Cetaphil if their ingredients are tested on animals, if they ask others to test on their behalf, and if their products are tested on animals anywhere in the world? Cetaphil had no response.

Is Cetaphil Sold in China?

I did some research and discovered that Cetaphil products are sold in China, where all imported cosmetics are required by law to be tested on animals.

Below is a screenshot taken from Cetaphil’s China website:

Cetaphil products sold in China, required by law to test on animals
Cetaphil’s Chinese Website

Because of Cetaphil’s decision to sell its products in China, they must consent and pay the Chinese government to test their products on animals before Cetaphil is allowed to sell in their country.

Therefore we would not consider Cetaphil to be cruelty-free in 2019.

Is Cetaphil Vegan?

Cetaphil claims some of their products are vegan in which they don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products. However, since we do not consider Cetaphil to be cruelty-free as their products are tested on animals when required by law, we would also not consider anything produced or manufactured by Cetaphil to be vegan.

In order for products to be vegan by ethical elephant’s standards, the finished products and ingredients must not be tested on animals and do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.

Below is a screenshot of what is currently stated on Cetaphil’s website about their vegan status:

Cetaphil claims to be vegan but they're not cruelty-free

Unfortunately, because Cetaphil is not cruelty-free, we also would not consider Cetaphil products to be vegan.

“Make ethical choices in what we buy, do, and watch. In a consumer-driven society our individual choices, used collectively for the good of animals and nature, can change the world faster than laws.”― Marc Bekoff
