Is OGX Cruelty-Free in 2019?

Organix, OGX is a popular drugstore hair care brand, most known for their affordable nourishing shampoo and hair products made with exotic ingredients but is OGX cruelty-free in 2019?

Is OGX Cruelty-Free?

OGX is not cruelty-free in 2019; OGX products are sold in China where animal testing is required by law for all imported cosmetics therefore, OGX is required by law to test on animals in 2019.

It should also be noted that OGX is owned by Johnson & Johnson, a parent corporation that does test on animals on animals when required by law in 2019.

OGX Cruelty-Free Status

OGX was once known to be a cruelty-free brand but OGX was removed from PETA’s cruelty-free list when they found out OGX was sold in mainland China where animal testing for imported cosmetics is required by law.

OGX Sold in China?

When I asked OGX if their products are sold in-stores in mainland China, they told me I can find their products in Watsons, the largest health and beauty care chain store in Asia.

In addition, Johnson & Johnson, OGX’s parent company is not a cruelty-free corporation and they state in their animal testing policy, “for our personal care products, we do not conduct animal testing or ask others to test on our behalf, except when required by law”

    I will no longer be buying OGX products as they ARE tested on animals and to say it is not is a lie. ALL their products sold in China are tested on animals- selling in China is THEIR CHOICE and by it they happily make a choice to TEST ON ANIMALS!!! Add to that the parent company J&J knowingly sold products they KNEW were carcinogenic? No thank you!
