Is Mamonde Cruelty Free in 2019? | Mamonde Animal Testing Policy

Is Mamonde Cruelty Free?

Mamonde is not cruelty-free in 2019; Mamonde products are sold in-stores in mainland China and are required by law to be tested on animals.

It should also be noted that Mamonde is owned by AMOREPACIFIC, a parent corporation that owns several other beauty brands that also sell in mainland China (like Laneige and Sulwhasoo) and are required to test on animals by law.

Mamonde Cruelty Free Claims

I had a hard time finding anything that mentions Mamonde’s animal testing policy or cruelty-free claims on their website. The only thing I found was that Mamonde claims some of their products are vegan-certified by Vegan Action.

Mamonde claims to be “vegan” but are they cruelty-free?

Some of Mamonde’s products do carry the Certified Vegan logo to indicate that these products do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products. But I first wanted to know whether Mamonde’s products or ingredients are tested on animals, anywhere in the world?

So I emailed Mamonde to inquire about their animal testing policy and below is their response:

Thank you for taking the time to contact Mamonde Online.

As an enterprise seeking peaceful coexistence between nature, human beings, and business, AMOREPACIFIC pledges the elimination of unnecessary animal testing for cosmetics to respect all living creatures. We have voluntarily discontinued animal testing on cosmetic ingredients and finished goods since 2008. And as of May 1, 2013, we will expand the non-animal testing policy to our suppliers.

Through continuous cooperation with academia, AMOREPACIFIC will further enhance our efforts to develop alternative testing methods.

*Exceptions to this principle will apply, however, if animal testing is required or bound by local governments or laws.”

It has been verified that Mamonde is owned by AMOREPACIFIC, a parent corporation that owns several other beauty brands that test on animals when required by law.

Mamonde has the exact same animal testing policy as AMOREPACIFIC, which states they have discontinued animal testing on cosmetic ingredients and finished products since 2008 and have expanded that policy to their suppliers, however, “exceptions to this principle will apply, however, if animal testing is required or bound by local governments or law.”

I know that some AMOREPACIFIC subsidiary beauty brands are sold in China (like Laneige and Sulwhasoo) and those brands must consent and pay to have their products tested on animals by the Chinese government before they’re allowed to sell in their country.

Based on Mamonde’s response, it’s suggested that Mamonde may be selling in China as well.

Is Mamonde Sold in China?

In another email response, Mamonde has confirmed that their products are sold in China and upon further investigation, I found evidence of several retailers in China carrying Mamonde products.

Because of Mamonde and AMOREPACIFIC’s decision to sell their products in mainland China, they must consent to have their products tested on animals. Although Mamonde may not be conducting these animal tests themselves, but they are allowing and authorizing others to do.

Until China changes its current animal testing laws or Mamonde stops selling their products in-stores through mainland China, we would not consider Mamonde to be cruelty-free in 2019.

Cruelty-Free Options:

Unfortunately we haven’t had much luck in verifying many K-Beauty brands as being cruelty-free but some other cruelty-free skincare brands that we recommend are:
