Is Live Clean Tested on Animals?

Live Clean is a Canadian eco-friendly hair and skincare brand, they use only natural, plant-sourced or non-petrochemical based ingredients that are renewable and sustainable. Live Clean also claims to only use 100% vegetarian ingredients.

I have seen Live Clean at my local Wal-mart and London Drugs and on their bottles, it says no animal testing but I couldn’t find details about their animal testing policy anywhere on the interweb! Their website briefly mentions that “no animals are directly or indirectly tested or harmed”.

Live Clean's Animal Testing Policy Live Clean is also not certified by either Leaping Bunny or PETA and not on any known cruelty-free lists that I follow now certified cruelty-free by the Leaping Bunny program! (UPDATED: OCT 16, 2017) So naturally I decided to contact them directly. I have been waiting to hear a response from them for months and I’m happy to finally share the good news with you all and that is, Live Clean is indeed a cruelty-free brand with  some vegan options! 

Below you will find Live Clean’s response about their animal testing policy:

From the initial email response, they didn’t address third party testing or whether they sell in China so a follow-up was neccessary. Here is the second email response:

Dear Vicky,

Thank you for your reply regarding our Live Clean® Product. We do not hire 3rd parties to test our products on animals and our products are not currently distributed internationally in China.

I am happy to be able to support another Canadian cruelty-free and eco-friendly brand like Live Clean! I’ve tried a few of their body wash before and they’re such a great drugstore option!

    I bought a travel pack with Live Clean’s daily moisturizer, nighttime moisturizer, cleanser, and exfoliating cleanser. I love them all! I just bought a full size daily moisturizer at Shoppers for $17.99. Felt like good value to me! I also love their conditioner (I haven’t tried their shampoo). This morning I needed to know if they test on animals. I am so happy to find out that they don’t! They should really include that info on their packaging. Thanks for your post!
