Is Foreo Cruelty-Free?
☠️ Foreo is NOT cruelty-free in 2023. Foreo states some of its products may have been tested on animals.
Foreo’s Animal Testing Policy
When asking, does Foreo test on animals? We must look beyond to ensure none of Foreo’s ingredients or suppliers test on animals. And they don’t sell in any country or under conditions that may require animal testing by law.
To assess whether brands are cruelty-free, I always start with the company’s official animal testing policy on their website.
However, I couldn’t find Foreo’s animal testing statement anywhere on its website.
So I reached out to Foreo to ask for more information. More specifically, I wanted to know if they commission or allow others to test, not just their finished products but their ingredients on animals, including when selling in countries that require animal testing (like mainland China).
And the company responded by saying,
“Products that we can claim are vegan & cruelty-free:
Our products are not tested on animals, and we have statements confirming that; Devices, F2F masks, Micro-Foam cleansers, Daily Duo & Advanced Masks.
All our new cosmetics: FOREO LUNA – Ultra-Nourishing Cleansing Balm, FOREO SUPERCHARGED – HA+PGA Triple, FOREO SUPERCHARGED – Ultra-Hydrating
Sleeping Mask, FOREO IRIS – C-Concentrated Brightening Eye Cream, FOREO IRIS – Firming PM Eye Serum, FOREO IRIS – Eyelashes Serum is non-animal tested & do not contain any raw material/ingredient derived from animals.
And for those, we have all the required documentation.
Products that we can’t claim are vegan:
SERUM SERUM SERUM, Youth Junkie Masks (collagen derived from fish skin), Glow Addict (Pearl extract), Manuka Honey (Honey extract), and Bulgarian Rose (Silk Amino Acids) are not vegan.
In reality, most of our masks are vegan but we don’t have certifications from our manufacturer so we can’t claim it.”
In Foreo’s response, they provided a list of their products that are not tested on animals and a list of products that are not vegan. However, I wanted to know if there was perhaps a list of products that were tested on animals.
So I asked Foreo if any of their products are NOT cruelty-free and that may have been tested on animals.
Foreo responded and said, “The products we cannot claim are vegan, mentioned in the previous email, are also products we cannot claim are cruelty-free. Therefore, they may have been tested on animals.”
Based on Foreo’s response, Foreo states some of their non-cruelty-free and non-vegan products may have been tested on animals. For those reasons, Foreo is NOT cruelty-free.

Is Foreo Certified Cruelty-Free?
Foreo is not certified cruelty-free by any third-party cruelty-free certifications like Leaping Bunny or PETA.
Since Foreo is not certified cruelty-free by a third party, no one is substantiating or auditing Foreo’s cruelty-free commitments and claims.
Does Foreo Test on Animals?
To wrap up, Foreo states some of their products may have been tested on animals. Therefore, we would NOT consider Foreo to be a cruelty-free brand.
Currently, Foreo is on our List of Brands to Avoid – Animal Tested.
Is Foreo Vegan?
❌ Foreo is NOT vegan. Foreo claims to offer some “vegan” options that are free of animal-derived ingredients, but Foreo engages in animal testing in some capacity, so we wouldn’t consider any Foreo products vegan at this time.
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. Also, they must not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.
