Is Uriage cruelty-free and vegan in 2022?

Is Uriage cruelty-free?

Till last year I had considered Uriage as a brand that does not support animal testing. As it is not certified cruelty-free, I sent them an email to verify my assumption. So let’s see together if it is.

Is Uriage certified cruelty-free?

No, Uriage is not certified cruelty-free.

Does Uriage test on animals?

No, Uriage does not test on animals.

Do any of Uriage’s suppliers, manufacturers or any third parties they work with, test on animals?

No answer.

Is Uriage owned by a certified cruelty-free parent?

No Uriage is not owned by a certified cruelty-free parent company. Uriage seems to be owned by Puig. PETA does not list Puig as an animal testing brand. However, it does test some of its brands as brands that do test on animals.

Does Uriage sell cosmetics in China or any other country where animal testing is required?

No answer.

What is Uriage’s cruelty-free status?

Uriage is a grey area brand, meaning that it is unclear whether they support animal testing or not since they chose not to answer some of the important questions.

Is Uriage vegan?

No answer. However, since Uriage is a grey area brand, it would not matter. Logically vegans avoid brands that might be supporting 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.

“Thank you for your interest in our products. Uriage Dermatological Laboratories© in accordance with the European Cosmetic Products Regulation # 1223/2009 DO NOT perform any animal testing, neither on the finished products nor on the ingredients. On the one hand, the claim “cruelty free” is prohibited in Europe because the regulations do not allow the simple respect of a regulatory requirement to be presented as an ethical commitment. On the other hand, claiming “cruelty free” is meaningless if it is not attached to a label (e.g. one voice, leaping bunny). Indeed, the requirements of these labels cover more or less extensive aspects and do not only concern animal testing.
Yours sincerely
The Uriage team”
