Is Yves Rocher cruelty-free?
No, Yves Rocher is not cruelty-free.
As we know, in Europe, animal testing they have been banned since March 2013. To find out more about what I mean by cruelty-free, see my article .
However, there are still some countries where testing on animals is mandatory. When a brand decides to sell its products in these countries, it must necessarily test its products. While it does not do this on products sold in Europe, it does so elsewhere.
Yves Rocher has decided to extend its market to the Chinese one. This means that sells its products in China , where animal testing is required by law.
Then its products, when required, are tested. This makes it a non-cruelty free brand.
