Unilever Acquires Cruelty-Free Beauty Brand Tatcha for a Reported $500 Million 
Tatcha is still considered to be cruelty-free (as of right now and we'll be closely monitoring any updates to their animal testing policies) however, Unilever is definitely NOT cruelty-free as their products/ingredients are tested on animals when required by law in 2019. 
For those of you who choose to boycott CF brands that are owned by a parent company that is not cruelty-free, then sadly Tatcha should be avoided. However, if you choose to support these CF brands and want to know which of Tatcha skincare products are also vegan, you can find a vegan product list below! 
Tatcha isn't a 100% vegan beauty brand however they do offer some vegan options 💜

Tatcha Vegan Products (2019):
❁ Camellia Gold Spun Lip Balm
❁ Cherry Blossom Lip Balm
❁ Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder
❁ Gold Camellia Beauty Oil
❁ One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil
❁ Red Camellia Lip Balm
❁ The Essence
❁ The Water Cream
❁ Violet-C Brightening Serum

Is Tom Ford Beauty Tested on Animals? or Cruelty-Free?

Posted on

Tom Ford Beauty is owned by Estee Lauder. And Estee Lauder is a corporation that has admitted to testing on animals when required by law.

I wanted to know, despite being owned by a non-cruelty-free parent company, whether Tom Ford Beauty tests any of their own products or ingredients on animals anywhere in the world.

In my research, there was virtually no information on Tom Ford Beauty’s website about their stance on animal testing. So I decided to email the company to ask what Tom Ford Beauty‘s animal testing policy is and if any of their products are considered vegan.

I was disappointed when I received a response from Tom Ford Beauty that was an exact cut and paste version of Estee Lauder’s animal testing statement, with the exception of the introduction sentence “Thank you for your interest in Tom Ford Beauty.”

Below is a snippet of the email response I received:

Thank you for your interest in Tom Ford Beauty.

Tom Ford does not test on animals and we never ask others to do so on our behalf. If a regulatory body demands it for its safety or regulatory assessment, an exception can be made. Our consumers can be certain that we are committed to producing only the highest quality beauty products which meet our exacting efficacy, safety and ethical standards.


We have a deep commitment to the abolishment of animal testing. Decades ago we were one of the first beauty companies to prove that safety can be validated by means other than animal testing. We continue that commitment today with likeminded partners that share our goal to support the acceptance of alternatives.

We will continue to work in close partnership with industry, government and non-profit groups in countries that require animal testing to work together towards the elimination of this practice and the global acceptance of non-animal testing methods.

While we do not make a vegan claim in our products, many of our products do not contain animal ingredients. For more information, please specify the exact name of the product you use or are interested in using.

In reading Tom Ford Beauty‘s response and Estee Lauder’s animal testing statement (since they’re the same), it’s great to hear that they are supporting alternative methods to animal testing however what’s problematic with their statement is this sentence here, “If a regulatory body demands it [testing on animals] for its safety or regulatory assessment, an exception can be made.”

This implies that Tom Ford Beauty does test on animals when required by law.

Which leads us to ask, in what case is it required for Tom Ford Beauty products to be tested on animals?

Is Tom Ford Sold in China?

Currently, all imported cosmetics into Mainland China are required by law to be tested on animals before they’re allowed to be sold in-stores within their country.

Using Tom Ford Beauty’s store locator on their website, I quickly discovered that they have numerous stores in Mainland China that sells Tom Ford Beauty products.

Below is a snap of where you can find Tom Ford Beauty products in-stores throughout Mainland China.

Tom Ford Beauty is NOT Cruelty-free

Sadly, Tom Ford Beauty is not cruelty-free as they are selling their products in Mainland China and therefore they’re required to have their products/ingredients tested on animals.

For cruelty-free alternatives to Tom Ford Beauty products, I recommend Cover FX, Kat Von D Beauty, Anastasia Beverly Hills.

    will never use those types of makeup like this. Just because of one lipstick, for your own selfish motive, you harm a lot of animals… I cannot use those brands like this. Just use, will make me remember those living I indirectly harm.

    It’s a shame that with all of the current technology, make-up (and anything/everything else) can’t be deemed safe without “testing” on animals. I will promptly return the very expensive lip lacquer that I just purchased.

    Very interesting article. Based on the Ethical Consumer magazine Chanel is the worst.

    I’ve always wondered this myself. Sadly, I won’t be purchasing anything from this brand but with the suggestions, you’ve mentioned, I hardly think I’m missing out 🙂
