Is CeraVe Cruelty Free?
I recently decided to contact all of the brands on my grey area list to see if anything had changed. I reached out to CeraVe to ask, is CeraVe Cruelty Free?
Here’s their response:
CeraVe, a brand of L’Oreal, does not test any of its products or ingredients on animals and has been at the forefront of alternative methods for over 30 yrs. For more information, please click here: http://bit.ly/1Npr1Dz
In China, the health authorities still require and carry out animal testing for some products. CeraVe a brand of L’Oréal, is the most active company working with the Chinese authorities towards a total elimination of animal testing.
As a result, the vast majority of products we sell in China are no longer tested on animals. For more information, please click here: http://bit.ly/2dP0Rnz
Cosmetic & personal care products may contain ingredients derived from animal sources such as lanolin & honey. Our products do not contain ingredients derived from bovine (beef) or porcine (pork) sources; we may use ingredients derived from fish & insects.
A review of the ingredients that are listed on all of our products or packages will alert you to the presence of this type of ingredient.
To me, CeraVe is not cruelty free. They are testing some products on animals in China.
