Is Clinique Vegan And Cruelty-Free?

by Toni Olukiran

1min read

Clinique has a reputation for delivering quality skincare and makeup, but are they suitable for vegans and are they cruelty-free? Read on for your questions answered. 

About Clinique

Clinique was founded by Evelyn Lauder, the daughter in law of Estee Lauder, back in 1968. Clinique was created with the idea of people being able to build a skincare routine and make great skin something that can be attained rather than just something one is born with. It is now a globally recognised and loved brand, with best-selling products including anti-ageing creams and serums. 

Is Clinique cruelty-free?

No, Clinique is not cruelty-free. This is because it sells its product in mainland China, where it is required by law for imported skincare and makeup brands to rest on animals.

Is Clinique vegan?

No, Clinique is not vegan either as it uses animal products in some of its formulas, including lanolin and carmine. Some products may be free of animal products, but some may contest whether they are truly vegan if the brand still tests on animals.
