Today I am investigating a popular skincare brand called Clinique. In this post, we will find out if Clinique is cruelty-free and how I came to my conclusion.

No, Clinique is not certified cruelty-free. PETA lists Clinique as a company that tests on animals.
Is Clinique owned by a certified cruelty-free parent?
No, Estée Lauder owns Clinique. PETA lists Estée Lauder on their companies that test on animals list.
What is Clinique’s cruelty-free status?
As mentioned, already Clinique is a company that supports animal testing. This also means that Clinique is not cruelty-free.
Which brands should I support instead?
