Yves Rocher è cruelty-free?

No, Yves Rocher is not cruelty-free.

Yves Rocher declares himself cruelty-free. On their website, they write: “We have not tested animals since 1989, neither on our products nor on the ingredients. This pioneering approach in the cosmetic industry earned us the Gold Medal of the SPA (French Society of Animal Protection) in 1992. "

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.
