Is Dior cruelty-free in 2021?

Is Dior cruelty-free?

Today I will be evaluating whether Dior is cruelty-free. Please note that this post is about Dior’s beauty products and not their fashion items. Although for me if the beauty part is testing on animals, I would not support even their fashion sector. However, that’s my opinion. Others might think that it is too extreme.

Does Dior test on animals?

Could not find Dior’s animal testing policy. So the answer to this question is unknown.

Is Dior owned by a parent that is not cruelty-free?

As far as I could find, Dior is not owned by any parent company.

Is Dior certified cruelty-free?

No Dior is not certified cruelty-free. PETA lists Dior as an animal testing brand.

Is Dior cruelty-free?

Since PETA lists it as an animal testing brand, this means that Dior is not cruelty-free. We could get a hint on what happened in the next question.

Does Dior sell in Mainland China?

On the Dior website, you have the option to switch to a Mainland China website. They are based in China. I could tell this as on the footer they wrote their company registration number for China. So, Dior sells in Mainland China and not to Mainland China. I am guessing that they did not make sure to avoid animal testing.

Which brands should I support instead?

If you are looking for a brand who is serious about their anti-animal-testing policy. Check my list of brands that are against animal testing.
