SB 241, sponsored by Senator Linda Holmes (D-Aurora) and signed by Governor J.B. Pritzker on August 9, prohibits the import or sale of any cosmetic if the final product or any ingredient was tested on animals after January 1, 2020.
Last year, California became the first state to enact β€œhumane cosmetics” legislation, followed by Nevada in June. Illinois’ new law provides additional incentives for cosmetics companies to invest in non-animal alternatives to help them stay competitive in a changing global market while sparing animals from painful tests.

Is La Roche-Posay Cruelty-Free (2019)

Is La Roche-Posay Cruelty-free in 2019?

La Roche-Posay is not cruelty-free because their products and/or ingredients are tested on animals and sold in mainland China where animal testing is required by law for all imported cosmetics.

La Roche-Posay’s Animal Testing Statement

La Roche-Posay Animal Testing Statement

Here is a statement I found on La Roche-Posay’s website of their stance on animal testing:

“La Roche-Posay does not test any of its products or any of its ingredients on animals, anywhere in the world nor does La Roche-Posay delegate this task to others. The only possible exception is if regulatory authorities required it for safety or regulatory purposes.” (Source: La Roche-Posay)

La Roche-Posay claims that they don’t test their products or ingredients on animals, except when a regulatory authority requires it. This suggests that La Roche-Posay may be selling their products in countries that require animal testing by law.

And that is the case for all imported cosmetics in mainland China. After some research, I discovered that La Roche-Posay is distributing and selling its products throughout China.

Since La Roche-Posay has chosen to sell its products in mainland China, they must pay and consent to have their products tested on animals.

Therefore I would not consider La Roche-Posay to be a cruelty-free brand.

It should also be noted that La Roche-Posay is owned by L’Oreal, a non-cruelty-free corporation that continues to test on animals.

    Will you update this now that they have stopped enforcing animal testing in China and la Roche posay have stopped animal testing?

      Animal testing for all imported cosmetics is STILL required by law in mainland China.

      Recent changes to their animal testing laws only apply to ordinary domestically produced cosmetics which no longer require PRE-market animal testing.
      However, it should be noted that POST-market animal testing may still occur. Post-market animal testing is when the Chinese officials will pull a product off from store shelves and test them on animals, this is often done without the company’s knowledge or consent.
      China announced that they are working on reducing the number of POST-market tests using animals however this is only a reduction and not a complete end to the procedures.

      There has been nothing changed for imported and special-use cosmetics which still require animal testing by law. This is the case for La Roche-Posay.

      So, La Roche-Posay is still NOT cruelty-free as their products and ingredients are required by law to be tested on animals in mainland China.

    Thank you for your web site. I have been becoming really aware of animal testing not just on cosmetics but on other common things like cleaning products. Your web site has confirmed a couple of products that I love but will now no longer purchase on principle. I will happily find something else that will be just as nice if not better and will be better anyway because it will cruelty free.

    Shame on those companies who conduct animal testing or allow it for export… there is no excuse when there are so many successful products being sold without the need for animal testing.

    These poor animals need a voice. Thank you.

    On L’Oreal’s Website it says: ”L’OrΓ©al no longer tests its ingredients on animals and no longer tolerates any exception to this rule.”
    And also: ”L’OrΓ©al has been the most active company working alongside the Chinese authorities and scientists for over 10 years to have alternative testing methods recognized (…) Thanks to this, since 2014, certain products manufactured and sold in China like shampoo, body wash or certain make-up are no longer tested on animals.”
    Yes, they are not 100% cruelty free but they do not test their products on animals, the chinese Government orders other companies to do so. It’s cruel and horrible but I don’t think it’s fair to blame L’Oreal or La Roche posay.

      Sorry but I disagree and think it’s totally fair to say they’re not cruelty free.
      They don’t have to sell in China. They’re making that choice to take their products there knowing they’ll be tested on animals before going to the Chinese market. Many brands choose not to do this and are very successful around the rest of the world.
      If all the big brands boycotted the Chinese market and refused the testing then I’m sure things would soon change but unfortunately it’s all about the money rather than ethics.

    Animal testing should be banned. We know too much about the ruthless cruelty inflicted on innocent animals. There are so many good cruelty free products and we al need to show the bigger companies we will not stand for the suffering animals go through for our ego. We do this by not buying their products and informing others of company status.

    why not test on humans as they want the product in the first place?

    Thanks for the info. Ironically a Mac ad (Not cruelty freue Brand) appeared when I was reading the article, I think you need to Control the ads that appear in your page.
