Exuviance is known for their anti-aging skincare products but is Exuviance cruelty-free in 2021? We’ve got the answers here!
Is Exuviance Cruelty-Free?
Exuviance is NOT Cruelty-free. Exuviance is a ‘sister’ product line of NeoStrata and abides by their animal testing policy. NeoStrata is not a cruelty-free company as the brand allows its products to be tested on animals when required by law and they cannot guarantee their suppliers are cruelty-free.
In addition, Exuviance and NeoStrata are owned by Johnson & Johnson, a parent company that is also not cruelty-free.
Exuviance Animal Testing Policy
On Exuviance’s website, they state NeoStrata’s animal testing policy as they are a sister line of NeoStrata.
Below is a screenshot I took from Exuviance’s website:
NeoStrata is not a cruelty-free company because the brand sells its products in China where animal testing is required by law for most imported cosmetics. NeoStrata also claims they cannot guarantee all of its raw material suppliers have not historically conducted any animal testing.
In order for brands to be considered cruelty-free by our standards, they must not sell their cosmetic products in countries that require animal testing like in mainland China. Also, the brand must be able to confirm that its suppliers do not test on animals. Therefore, NeoStrata cannot be cruelty-free by our standards.
Summary: Exuviance is NOT Cruelty-Free!
Because Exuviance follows the same policy as NeoStrata and Neostrata is not a cruelty-free company, I would also not consider Exuviance to be cruelty-free.
Currently, Exuviance is on our List of Brands to Avoid – Animal Tested.
Is Exuviance Vegan?
Since we would not consider Exuviance to be cruelty-free as their products are tested on animals when required by law, we also wouldn’t consider anything sold or manufactured by them to be vegan.
In order for products to be considered vegan by ethical elephant’s standards, the products and their ingredients must not be tested on animals, anywhere in the world, and also must not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.
