Drunk Elephant cruelty free

 A spokesperson for Drunk Elephant confirmed that they don’t test their products or ingredients on animals or have anyone else test their products for them. In addition, neither their suppliers nor their customers test their products on animals, even when required by law. They do not sell their products in mainland China or other countries where animal testing may be required.

Drunk Elephant would be considered a cruelty-free title according to our standards.

Shiseido, the owner of Drunk Elephant, is NOT cruelty-free because some of their other brands are tested on animals.

Supporting or boycotting cruelty-free brands owned by non-cruelty-free parent companies is entirely up to you. It is neither ‘right’ nor ‘wrong’ to respond to this question. There is neither ‘right’ nor ‘wrong’ to respond to this question. While I encourage you to disclose that Shiseido owns Drunk Elephant, I believe it is important to do so.

How Do Chinese Laws Affect Animal Testing?

As a result, Drunk Elephant does not have to test on animals since they only sell their products online or in Hong Kong, and not in retail stores throughout mainland China.

According to Drunk Elephant:

“We are so excited to be in China! We will never test animals on humans, let’s be clear on that. The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region does not require animal testing. That is the only place where we are retailing our products. The cosmetics we sell through retail in mainland China are not subject to the same registration process as those sold via cross-border e-commerce. We are Leaping Bunny Program Certified, and have never, nor will we ever, animal test or allow our products to be tested on animals.“

Under certain conditions, some ordinary imported cosmetics will not require animal testing beginning on May 1, 2021. Despite this, the majority of import cosmetics are still required to include animal testing in 2022.

‘Vegan’ can refer to a complete line of vegan products or to a product that is vegan.

It is worth mentioning that not all Drunk Elephant products are vegan. They do, however, offer some vegan-friendly products.

There is a clear mark of vegan status on the Drunk Elephant website.

Policies on veganism

The word ‘Vegan’ has no legal definition or standard just like ‘cruelty-free.’ It’s usually used to describe something that doesn’t contain animal by-products or animal-derived ingredients.

There are various animal-based products used in cosmetics, such as animal-derived glycerin, keratin, and squalene, plus beeswax, snail mucus, honey, pearl or silk-derived ingredients, carmine, lanolin, and snail mucus.

Animal-derived ingredients can be replaced with plant-based and synthetic alternatives. When reading the ingredient list, it can be hard to tell for sure whether a product is vegan.

To ensure that the ingredients used by the manufacturer are from non-animal sources, you should ask the company about it.
