There is no real order on how I decide which brand I evaluate. On rare occasions, I evaluate brands that I recently looked up myself or which you have asked me to check. However, today I chose a random brand which probably most of you have known its cruelty-free status for years. The brand is the L’Oréal-owned cosmetics brand Vichy.
Is Vichy certified cruelty-free?
No. Vichy is not certified cruelty-free. PETA lists Vichy as a brand that does test on animals.
Is Vichy owned by a certified cruelty-free parent?
No, Vichy is owned by L’Oréal which we already found out that it’s not cruelty-free. PETA lists L’Oréal as a company that tests on animals.
What is Vichy’s cruelty-free status?
From the first question, I could already tell that Vichy is not cruelty-free. This means that Vichy is a brand that supports animal testing.
Which brands should I support instead?
If you are looking for a brand that is serious about its anti-animal-testing policy. Check my list of brands that are against animal testing.
