Lancome is respected for its range of luxury products, but is it cruelty-free and vegan? Find out what you need to know here.

About Lancome

Lancome was founded in 1935 by Guillaume d'Ornano and his business partner Armand Petitjean in France, with its headquarters in Paris. Originally conceived as a fragrance house, the brand now specialises in beauty and skincare. It is owned by L’Oreal, its parent company.

Is Lancome cruelty-free?

No, Lancome isn’t truly cruelty-free. It states on their website: ‘L’Oreal no longer tests its products or ingredients on animals anywhere in the world, nor does L’Oreal delegate this task to others. An exception would only be made if authorities demanded it for safety or regulatory purposes.’

As it sells in Mainland China, where animal testing is required by law, it cannot be considered truly cruelty-free. 

Is Lancome vegan?

No, Lancome can’t be considered a vegan brand, as it has some products containing animal products such as beeswax and carmine in the ingredients.
