Unilever Acquires Cruelty-Free Beauty Brand Tatcha for a Reported $500 Million 
_
Tatcha is still considered to be cruelty-free (as of right now and we'll be closely monitoring any updates to their animal testing policies) however, Unilever is definitely NOT cruelty-free as their products/ingredients are tested on animals when required by law in 2019. 
_
For those of you who choose to boycott CF brands that are owned by a parent company that is not cruelty-free, then sadly Tatcha should be avoided. However, if you choose to support these CF brands and want to know which of Tatcha skincare products are also vegan, you can find a vegan product list below!

Tatcha isn't a 100% vegan beauty brand however they do offer some vegan options ๐Ÿ’œ

L’Oreal Brands – Which Ones are Cruelty-Free or Sold in China?

This post may contain affiliate links.

Is L’Oreal cruelty-free?

Answer:

No. L’Oreal is not a cruelty-free corporation as some of their brands are sold in Mainland China where animal testing is required by law for all imported cosmetics.

However it should be noted that 5 of L’Oreal’s brands are PETA certified cruelty-free: Urban Decay, NYX Cosmetics, Pureology, IT Cosmetics, and Carol’s Daughter.

L’Oreal’s Animal Testing Policy (2018)

L’Oreal has a very misleading animal testing statement. They state “Today, L’Oreal no longer tests its ingredients on animals and no longer tolerates any exception to this rule.

But here’s the TRUTH, L’Oreal will make an exception if regulatory authorities demanded animal tests for safety or regulatory purposes, and they say what those exceptions are: Selling in China. So, the claim that L’Oreal “no longer tolerates any exception to this rule” is complete BS.

Source: L’Oreal

L’Orรฉal Continues to Test On Animals

Don’t believe L’Oreal products are sold in China where animal testing is required by law?

Check out what L’Oreal had to say about why they are listed on PETA’s List of Companies that Do Test on Animals:

Source: L’Oreal

Although L’Oreal is not conducting the animal tests themselves, but they are having others do it for them, and in this case, the Chinese health authorities are testing their products and ingredients on animals.

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

It should be noted that throughout the years, L’Oreal has acquired 5 cruelty-free brands: It Cosmetics, NYX, Urban Decay, Pureology, and Carol’s Daughter. These 5 brands are not sold in China and are not required to be tested on animals. These 5 brands are in fact, certified cruelty-free by PETA.

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

List of L’Orรฉal Brands

I wanted to list out all of L’Oreal’s brands to help with:

  • Figuring out which of L’Oreal’s brands are cruelty-free
  • Knowing which of L’Oreal’s brands are sold in Mainland China
  • If you don’t want to support anything associated with L’Oreal, then use this list as a reference as you should avoid all the brands on this list

Sold in China – This brand distributes its products in China where animal testing is required by law

PETA Certified – This brand is PETA Certified Cruelty-Free

No notes – It has not been confirmed whether this brand sells in China, buy or boycott at your own discretion.

    So glad I STILL get products from Merle Norman. Why do me NOT test cosmetics on ourselves. As NONE are products we MUST have? Simply ones we LOVE. Drop them in human eyes and see how bad they BURN. Inject the various chemicals into HUMAN veins. The same way may drug trials are done. There is NOT that much difference in any of these products–despite all the ADS that shout otherwise,that should allow for ANY tormenting of even ONE animal. The most commonly abused–the beagle–they seem to NEVER strike out at those who abuse them. Day,after day after day. Until finally put down. Their only hope? A rescue group finds them first. All because we want yet ANOTHER shade of green shadow?—Sounds about right.

    It would be helpful if there was a link with each product that we could send the company a message. I just found my face cream on the list.

    I read somewhere that product that manufactured in china doesn’t require animal testing, is it right?

    I hate how brands can get away with lying to consumers! That would be like whole foods saying their fresh fruits were organic but they were actually full of pesticides! >:(

    Thank you for this wonderful information. I thought vegan products were not being tested on animals. Obviously I was wrong. Please continue this good work. If people saw pictures of what rabbits, cats, dogs were going through, they wouldnโ€™t be buying from companies that allow such horrific acts. Itโ€™s reprehensible and needs to stop.

    China should be boycotted for its lack of animal welfare laws and its insistance on animal testing. Lโ€™Oreal do not need to sell in China. Greed is NOT good. It has long been proved that animal testing is irrelevant, unneccessary and immoral. There is no place for it in the 21st century.

    • Josette Lauer
      November 12, 2018

      Absolutely Correct. It is immoral and indecent to harm animals of any kind. These companies should be closed for food if they continue to test in animals. Boycott their products and only use those companies that do not do vicious and cruel things. This country and all others need to Stop! sending their products to China. Enough us Enough!!!!!!

        I absolutely agree that China’s animal welfare standards are abhorrent, and they desperately need new legislation for animal protection. I also agree that there is no need for animal testing anywhere in the world, as alternative methods have been proven to be sufficient replacements. However, I am curious, how do you propose that the nation of China be boycotted? Are you proposing a boycott of goods made by China or sold to China? If so, I fully support that, I have relatives who do this. But I am a bit confused on what you mean by “boycotting China.”

    I will not buy and products that I know aren’t cruelty free. I see no purpose in testing on animals. How said in this day of technology that can’t come up with a better alternative. The problem being I thing is that not enough information getting out into the public.
    I pray for the lives of all thevaninals being used as experiments.

    For people who are trying to use cruelty free/vegan products, companies have a responsibility to everyone to be truthful about their animal testing policies and individual ingredient policies. L’Oreal must inform the public if it sells products in China. Until China changes its laws, “cruelty-free” should not be in the vocabulary of any company that sells products in that country. That includes L’Oreal. I used Skinceuticals Vitamin C Serum once, not knowing about the product being animal- tested. I loved the product but will never use it again knowing what I know now.

  • Lapis Lynx

    As far as I see it if a company tests on animals for ANY of its own companies then it is responsible for testing on animals,period. I would NOT buy anything from l’oreal until all their companies stop testing…no excuses.

โ€œMake ethical choices in what we buy, do, and watch. In a consumer-driven society our individual choices, used collectively for the good of animals and nature, can change the world faster than laws.โ€โ€• Marc Bekoff
