Laura Geller offers a full range of makeup products, they’re mostly known for their high-performance baked formulas. But is Laura Geller cruelty-free, vegan, or sustainable in 2021? I’ve got the answers here!
Is Laura Geller Cruelty-Free?
Laura Geller is Cruelty-free! None of Laura Geller’s ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
Laura Geller’s Animal Testing Policy
In an email response, Laura Geller 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.
Below is a snippet of the email response I received from Laura Geller:
“Thank you for your inquiry. Laura Geller Beauty products are cruelty free and not tested on animals. Some of our products may contain animal by-products. The ingredients in our products are not tested on animals by our suppliers. We are committed to delivering the most beautiful products, from the inside out!

*Note: Cosmetics made in China are not required to be tested on animals. Only cosmetics that are sold in physical stores in mainland China are required to be tested on animals according to China’s animal testing laws.
Laura Geller does not claim to be a sustainable company.
Additionally, I wasn’t able to find any available information on Laura Geller’s sustainability, environmental, and social initiatives.
Giving Back Initiatives: Laura Geller supports on-going campaigns. Most recently, they teamed up with a nonprofit that serves LA’s homeless population and photographed cisgender and transgender women for their 2019 holiday campaign #MAKEUPMEANSSOMETHING. In addition, the founder is a board member and advocate for several cancer-focused charities. However, there’s no mention of proceeds from purchases goes to any charities.
Ingredients and Formulations Claims: Some of Laura Geller products are paraben-free and gluten-free, but not all of them are.
Is Laura Geller’s Mica Ethically-Sourced? Laura Geller did not specifically address whether their natural mica is ethically-sourced without the use of child labor.
“Thank you for reaching out to customer care! Our products are made with natural mica.”
