Is Neutrogena cruelty-free in 2022?

Is Neutrogena cruelty-free?

My mother is a fan of the Neutrogena hand cream. I don’t know what she finds in it. The only thing it seems to be doing is to add a protective coating but the skin on her hands seem to be getting even harsher. If it were really treating the skin, I would say, ok I understand why she likes it but no the skin of her hands is getting worse than better. In my opinion, that was a waste of animal experiments. You guessed it! Today I will be investigating whether Neutrogena is cruelty-free.
