“It’s not about being perfect! And we don’t know any vegans who walk around saying that they are, or that they cause zero harm. Veganism doesn’t mean causing ZERO harm (that would be delusional)... but it definitely means causing a lot less of it!! And causing LESS harm than before (before being vegan) is definitely worth celebrating and continuing to advocate for.

Don’t let the vegan haters get you down. Usually the people pointing their fingers and trying to find a flaw in veganism are the ones who simply don’t understand it or don’t know what it takes to stand for something.” (Words by @vegan_boss, 📸 via @unmeatfuture)

Is SK-II Tested on Animals? (2019)

This post may contain affiliate links.

SK-II is a Japanese high-end skincare brand and I wanted to know is SK-II cruelty-free?

Is SK-II Cruelty-Free?

Answer:

No. SK-II is not cruelty-free. SK-II products are tested on animals when required by law. SK-II is also owned by Procter & Gamble (P&G), a corporation that is still testing on animals.

SK-II Animal Testing Statement (2019)

I couldn’t find any information on SK-II’s website about their animal testing policy and I’ve emailed the company numerous times but never heard back.

It appears as though SK-II has chosen to remain completely silent on the topic of animal testing.

This leads me to wonder what are they hiding or don’t want their customers to know? So I looked into it some more and discovered that SK-II products are sadly sold in countries that require animal testing by law.

Is SK-II Sold in China?

Any cosmetic brand that is importing and selling its products in a physical store in Mainland China are required by law to have their products tested on animals.

And after some digging around, I found a number of SK-II counters located in Mainland China. This is evidence of SK-II selling their products in-stores in Mainland China and therefore their products must be tested on animals by the Chinese local authorities.

Because SK-II has chosen to sell their products in Mainland China, they must consent and pay to have their products tested on animals per China’s animal testing requirements.

Until China changes their animal testing laws or SK-II stops selling their products in markets that require animal testing, like China, we cannot consider SK-II to be a cruelty-free brand.

    It’s pointless to support cruelty free Brand’s whose parent companies are big conglomerates that sell in China. Shiseido, L’Oreal and P&G (who owns SK-II by the way) all sell in China. So that means they all do animal testing.

“Make 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.”― Marc Bekoff
