Supergoop Animal Testing Statement
On Supergoop’s website, they claim Supergoop does not test their products; they do not test their ingredients on animals; they do not hire or ask others to test their products/ingredients on animals on their behalf; and they have contractual agreements with their raw material suppliers to ensure they’re also not testing on animals.
In addition, Supergoop has confirmed to me that none of their products are sold in stores in mainland China. They only sell through cross border e-commerce sites in China which do not require animal testing.
