La Roche Posay is an aspirational skincare brand that is loved around the world. But is it cruelty-free and vegan? Read on for the full lowdown here.

About La Roche Posay

La Roche Posay is a French skincare brand that has dominated the skincare and wellness industry in recent years, specialising in simple products using top quality ingredients. It is under the L’Oreal group and was created in 1975 working closely with dermatologists at every step, which has earned its cult status around the world. 

Is La Roche Posay cruelty-free?

No, unfortunately, La Roche Posay isn’t cruelty-free. This is because La Roche Posay distributes its products in countries wherein animal testing can be required by law in order to sell products there, such as mainland China. As a result, it can’t be considered truly cruelty-free. 

Is La Roche Posay vegan?

No, La Roche Posay isn’t vegan; this is because it contains animal by-products like honey, beeswax and lanolin in its formulas.
