Is Koh Gen Do Cruelty-Free?

Koh Gen Do is cruelty-free in 2019, none of Koh Gen Do’s products or ingredients are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.

Koh Gen Do Animal Testing Statement

There is virtually no information available on Koh Gen Do’s website about their animal testing policy so I emailed them to inquire about their policy and I have confirmed the following:

  • Koh Gen Do does not test any of their products on animals
  • Koh Gen Do does not test any of their raw ingredients on animals
  • Koh Gen Do does not ask any third parties to test their products or ingredients on animals on their behalf
  • It is in Koh Gen Do’s agreement that all materials are not animal tested through their manufacturer. When it is tested the In Vitro method is used.
  • Koh Gen Do is not sold in physical stores in Mainland China

When asked about selling in China, Koh Gen Do responded by saying “We do not have a store in China that we retail in.  We have circumnavigated the China animal testing by using e-commerce to sell into China.  We do have a store in Hong Kong, but Hong Kong is not required to do animal testing under China regulations and have their own regulations.”

Since Koh Gen Do is not selling their products in-stores in mainland China, and only selling in Hong Kong or online, they are not required to test their products or ingredients on animals.

I am happy to add Koh Gen Do to our List of Cruelty-Free Beauty Brands!
