Shiseido is NOT a cruelty-free corporation, they DO test on animals when required by law and the brand, as well as, some of their subsidiary brands (like NARS) are sold in mainland China and are required by law to test on animals.
Shiseido does own two cruelty-free brands, bareMinerals and BUXOM.

Is Lumene Cruelty-Free? | Lumene Vegan Product List (2019)

This post may contain affiliate links.

Lumene is a popular Finnish beauty brand, sold on Amazon and in select CVS and Target stores. But first I wanted to know, is Lumene cruelty-free or vegan?

Is Lumene Cruelty-Free?

Lumene is cruelty-free; none of Lumene’s products or ingredients are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.

Lumene’s Animal Testing Statement

Lumene is not certified cruelty-free by a third party organization like PETA or Leaping Bunny and there was no mention of Lumene’s animal testing policy on their website.

Lumene claims “no animal testing”

They do claim “no animal testing” and “vegan skincare” briefly on their website. But other than those generic terms, no other information could be found on their website.

I emailed Lumene to ask for details about their animal testing policy and they responded with the following:

We do not carry out or commission animal testing on our products or ingredients at any point in the product development or manufacturing process. As a Finnish company we comply with the EU cosmetics legislation that bans testing on animals. The legislation regulating the cosmetics industry (including the ban on animal testing) is enforced in Finland by the Finnish Safety and Chemicals Agency (Tukes).

We only use suppliers that don’t use animal testing. It’s against the EU cosmetics legislation for suppliers in EU to use animal testing and for suppliers outside of EU to sell ingredients for cosmetic purposes that have been tested on animals. This is being made sure with different audits and Code of Conduct commitments.

At the moment Lumene products are not available in China and we are not planning to enter the Chinese market so that we would need to give up on our position on animal testing.”

Based on their thorough and detailed response, I would consider Lumene to be a cruelty-free brand!

Is Lumene Vegan?

Most of Lumene products are vegan including their skincare products, foundations, and their whole Invisible Illumination collection are fully vegan. However, not all of Lumene products are considered vegan.

Please reference below for a list of Lumene vegan products.
