Leonor Greyl is an award-winning natural hair care brand founded in Paris, but is Leonor Greyl cruelty-free and 100% vegan in 2021? We’ve got the answers here!

Leonor Greyl is Cruelty-free! None of Leonor Greyl’s ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
In addition, Leonor Greyl is certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny.
Leonor Greyl Animal Testing Policy
Leonor Greyl has confirmed they do not test their products or ingredients on animals nor they do not allow others to test on their behalf. They have verified with their suppliers that they also do not test on animals. As well as, they do not allow their products to be tested on animals when required by law, and their products are not sold in stores in mainland China or any other country that may require animal testing.
Below is a screenshot of what’s currently stated on Leonor Greyl’s website:
In addition, I emailed the French hair care brand asking for more information about its animal testing policy. The following is a snippet of the response I received from the company:
“We do not test our products on animals. It is illegal to test raw materials or final products on animals in Europe for the last 10 years or so. Since all of our products are released in Europe first, none of our products or ingredients have been tested on animals. Our suppliers are also controlled by the European Union and must follow their guidelines.
Our products are sold in China via a cross-border program with our distributor in Hong Kong. We won’t sell directly to China unless they change their guidelines on animal testing.”
Is Leonor Greyl Sold in China?
All imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals. However, Leonor Greyl has confirmed they do not sell its products in retail stores in mainland China and therefore they are not required to test on animals.
Is Leonor Greyl Vegan?
Not all of Leonor Greyl’s products are vegan as some of their products contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products. However, Leonor Greyl does have some vegan options.
