Be gentle with yourself on your journey to living and choosing cruelty-free. Know that you'll probably make mistakes along the way and that's OK. Give yourself permission to learn and grow, and to strive for progress, not perfection. It's not a race or competition to see who can be the best cruelty-free consumer, go at your own pace and always remember what you're doing IS making a difference to animals and the planet! πŸ°πŸŒπŸ’•// πŸ“Έ via @fequalshq

Is SK-II Tested on Animals? (2019)

Posted on

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.
