Maison Louis Marie is Cruelty-Free

Maison Louis Marie has confirmed they do not test their products or ingredients on animals or ask others to test on their behalf. Their suppliers also do not test on animals, nor do they allow their products to be tested on animals when required by law. And finally, their products are not sold in stores in mainland China or any other country that may require animal testing.

By our standards, we would consider Maison Louis Marie to be Cruelty-Free.

What About China’s Animal Testing Laws?

Maison Louis Marie has confirmed they do not sell their products in retail stores in mainland China; therefore, they are not required to test on animals.

“We do not sell in mainland China. We do sell to some Hong Konng retailers who sell to mainland China customers but this gets us around working with China based retailers who animal test.”

As of May 1, 2021, some imported ordinary cosmetics can be exempt from animal testing under certain conditions. However, for the most part, animal testing is still legally required for most imported cosmetics in 2022.

Cruelty-Free Policies

Note that there is no legal definition for the label ‘Cruelty-Free.’ It can mean different things to different people. But Cruelty-Free is generally used to imply no animal testing. More specifically, the ingredients, formulation, or finished product are not tested on animals at any stage of product development.

At ethical elephant, we always assess a company’s cruelty-free policy using our Cruelty-Free Checklist. This ensures no animal testing was performed by the brand itself, its suppliers, and by any third parties.

Also, note that Cruelty-Free and Vegan don’t always mean the same thing.

Maison Louis Marie is 100% Vegan

Maison Louis Marie has confirmed all of its products are vegan and don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.

The following is a snippet of the email response I received from Maison Louis Marie when I asked if all of their products are vegan:

“Yes, we are vegan and cruelty free and absolutely do not use any animal products or work with anyone who tests on animals.”

Vegan Policies

Similar to ‘Cruelty-Free,’ there is no standard or legal definition for the label ‘Vegan.’ But it usually means no animal-derived ingredients or animal by-products.

Some common animal products used in cosmetics include carmine, lanolin, snail mucus, beeswax, honey, pearl or silk-derived ingredients, animal-based glycerin, keratin, and squalene.

There are plant-based and synthetic alternatives to animal-derived ingredients. But it’s sometimes difficult to know with certainty whether a product is vegan just by reading the ingredient list.

So it’s best to ask the company and manufacturers to ensure the ingredients they’ve chosen to use were from non-animal sources.

Where are Maison Louis Marie’s products made?

I asked Maison Louis Marie where their products are manufactured and they said in Los Angeles.

I hope this article helped you to understand Maison Louis Marie’s cruelty-free and vegan status and by choosing cruelty-free together, we can help end animal testing for cosmetics once and for all!
