Q: Is Aveeno Cruelty-Free?
.
A: Aveeno is not cruelty-free in 2019; Aveeno products and ingredients are tested on animals when required by law. Aveenoโ€™s products are sold in-stores in mainland China, where all imported cosmetics are required by law to be tested on animals in 2019.
.
It should also be noted that Aveeno is owned by Johnson & Johnson, a parent corporation that is still testing on animals in 2019.
.
Swipe to see what is currently stated on Aveeno's website ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป as well as evidence of their products sold in China. Because of Aveeno's decision to sell their products in mainland China, they must consent and pay the Chinese government to test their products on animals before they can sell in China. Therefore, we would NOT consider Aveeno to be cruelty-free.

Coty Brands – Which Ones are Cruelty-Free or Sold in China?

This post may contain affiliate links.

Is Coty cruelty-free?

Answer:

No. Coty is not a cruelty-free corporation, their products are tested on animals in China where animal testing is required for all imported cosmetics.

Coty Inc’s Animal Testing Policy

Source: Coty

“We do not perform, nor do we ever commission any third parties on our behalf to perform, testing of our products or ingredients on animals, except where required by law.

All our products are safe and have been developed, manufactured and packaged in compliance with the laws, regulations and guidelines that are applicable in each country in which they are sold”๏ปฟ

According to Coty’s animal testing policy, their products are tested on animals in some countries they sell to, namely in China, where animal testing is required by law.

This is also validated when Coty states “It is common knowledge that China requires mandatory animal tests on all cosmetic products imported into the country.” 

Therefore, I would not consider Coty or any of their brands that are sold in Mainland China to be cruelty-free.

When a corporation, as large as Coty, has over 50+ brands in its portfolio, it’s sometimes hard to tell which brands are selling in China, or certified cruelty-free, or brands that naturally inherit their parent company’s animal testing policy.

In my research, I found that almost all of Coty brands I reached out to, responded back to me with Coty’s animal testing policy. So although there may be no evidence of some of their brands selling in China, but almost all of Coty’s brands inherits their parent company’s animal testing policy, with the disclaimer that they test on animals when required by law.

    Is cover girl cruelty free or not? They say they are but, there is no bunny on their packaging.

    You would do better to discuss the Chinese policy instead of any company who trades in China.

    You will find it very hard to find any company that does not, historically has not, or be forced by foreign countries to currently animal test.

    Why not put your passion to good use instead of bitching about legitimate companies?

      Thanks for the feedback.

      I have lots of articles talking about China’s animal testing laws, thank you very much. (see below for a list)

      Yes, at some point.. every ingredient, including water, may have been tested on animals in the past. But what we can do NOW is prevent any MORE animal tests from happening. We can’t change what happened in the past but we can definitely avoid testing cosmetics and their ingredients on animals from this point forward.

      And for the companies that have CHOSEN to sell in China knowing that they’ll have to test their products/ingredients on animals is NOT OK in my books. This article is showcasing some of those brands that have decided to sell in China and for those of us who don’t want to support those companies may find this list helpful.

      I’m going to “bitch” about these non-cruelty-free companies till the day we see a global end to animal testing for cosmetics and if you don’t like what you’re reading then BYE, FELICIA.

        Girl YES, thank you.

        Animal testing is completely unnecessary in this day & age. Moving forward, companies should take note and make the change, and stop imposing unnecessary cruelty onto the voiceless.
