StriVectin is known for their effective anti-aging products but is StriVectin cruelty-free and vegan?
Is StriVectin Cruelty-Free?
StriVectin is cruelty-free! None of StriVectin’s ingredients, formulations, or finished products are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.
In 2019, StriVectin announced they were no longer selling their products in mainland China. Therefore StriVectin products are not required by law to be tested on animals anymore.
StriVectin Animal Testing Policy
Below is a screenshot of StriVectin’s official animal testing statement:
StriVectin confirmed to me in an email 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 Sold in China?
Most imported cosmetics sold in mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals in 2021. However, in 2019, StriVectin chose to pull its products out of mainland China stores so that their distribution would not conflict with its beliefs against animal testing.
Below is a snippet of the email response I received from StriVectin in 2019:
Is StriVectin Vegan?
Almost all of StriVectin’s products are considered vegan with the exception of a couple of products that contain honey or lanolin.
The following is a screenshot of what’s currently stated on StriVectin’s official website about its vegan products:
On StriVectin’s FAQ page of their website, they state that all of their products are vegan except for Tri-Phase Daily Glow Toner and Full Screen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 sunscreens. But strangely, they don’t market or label any of their products as ‘Vegan’.
I don’t know why they don’t label their products to say which ones are vegan. But I would advise checking their website’s FAQ before buying to make sure their new products are also vegan.
Is StriVectin Sustainable?
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find any public information on StriVectin’s sustainability, environmental, and social initiatives.
StriVectin does not claim or market itself as a sustainable company at this time. StriVectin does not offer any products packaged in sustainable or recycled materials. The company does not offer a recycling or refill program.
At the current price of StriVectin products, I’d like to see them use glass bottles over plastic. Glass bottles can be reused and they’re 100% recyclable.
StriVectin’s headquarters is based in: New York, NY
Ingredients and Formulations Claims: All of StriVectin’s products are paraben-free.
