SB 241, sponsored by Senator Linda Holmes (D-Aurora) and signed by Governor J.B. Pritzker on August 9, prohibits the import or sale of any cosmetic if the final product or any ingredient was tested on animals after January 1, 2020.

Last year, California became the first state to enact β€œhumane cosmetics” legislation, followed by Nevada in June. Illinois’ new law provides additional incentives for cosmetics companies to invest in non-animal alternatives to help them stay competitive in a changing global market while sparing animals from painful tests.

Does Nivea Test On Animals?

This post may contain affiliate links.

Nivea-Animal-Testing

Sadly, NIVEA products are tested on animals.

On NIVEA’s website, they claim that their parent company, Beiersdorf does not test on animals. However they may not be doing the testing themselves but they are asking others to test their products on animals on their behalf.

Unfortunately, this is a typical loophole that shady companies use to try and cover up the fact that their products are indeed tested on animals.

Nivea-Tests-On-Animals

NIVEA doesn’t come out and say that their products are sold in China but it is obviously implied that they are selling in China with the statement “In China, however, animal testing is mandated by law for the official registration and certification of the safety of certain product categories.”

Although NIVEA and their parent company, Beiersdorf, is not conducting the animal tests themselves, they’re still condoning and paying others to do it for them. Therefore I am sad to say that NIVEA is not a cruelty-free brand.

For cruelty-free skincare options, I highly recommend Andalou Naturals, 100% Pure, Pacifica, Avalon Organics.

    I have also used the Nivea brand for a long time and in my ignorance thought that they would never have used animals for testing (it’s archaic and for people who call themselves ‘scientists’, shows sheer stupidity in their methods). I have found a few cosmetic brands that are free from animal testing and have moved towards them. There are so many options and I agree that if we want these products to be safe for human use, they should be tested on humans or not be used at all! Awareness is key though, so keep up the good work, Vicky, and hopefully more people (especially women) will take a stand against these companies!
