Unfortunately, GLAMGLOW is not cruelty-free and they do test on animals when required by law; I also have proof that GLAMGLOW products are available for sale in China.
GLAMGLOW is also owned by Estee Lauder, a corporation that continues to test on animals.
On GLAMGLOW’s website, it states:
“We do not test our products on animals, nor do we ask others to conduct animal testing on our behalf, except when required by law.”
The disclaimer, “except when required by law” is concerning as animal testing for cosmetics is not required by law in most countries. So on what occasions is GLAMGLOW required to test their products/ingredients on animals?
Selling imported cosmetics in Mainland China require animal testing. Now, this leads us to ask if GLAMGLOW products are sold in China.
GLAMGLOW Sold in China
I checked Sephora’s Chinese website to see whether GLAMGLOW products are available in Chinese stores which is when cosmetics are required by law to be tested on animals. Want to learn more about China’s animal testing requirements? Check out my infographic that explains it here.
After my research, I found GLAMGLOW listed on Sephora’s Chinese website which is evident that unfortunately, GLAMGLOW is selling their products in-stores in China and therefore cannot be considered cruelty-free.
For a cruelty-free alternative to GLAMGLOW, I recommend Tata Harper, Juice Beauty, and May Lindstrom.
