Perricone MD is a doctor-developed anti-aging skincare brand known for its effective treatments, moisturizers, and cleansers but is Perricone MD cruelty-free, vegan, or sustainable? I’ve got the answers here!
Is Perricone MD Cruelty-Free?
Perricone MD is Cruelty-free! None of Perricone MD’s ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
Perricone MD Animal Testing Policy
Perricone MD has confirmed they do not test their products or ingredients on animals or ask others to test on their behalf. Their suppliers also do not test on animals nor do they allow their products to be tested on animals when required by law. And finally, their products are not sold in stores in mainland China or any other country that may require animal testing.

Is Perricone MD Sold in China?
Most imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals in 2021. However, Perricone MD has confirmed their products are not sold in retail stores in China. They only sell their products online which are then shipped directly to consumers in China. Online sales are not required to be tested on animals per China’s animal testing laws.
