Is Palmer’s Cruelty-Free?
Palmers is well known for its cocoa and shea butter formulas, and are popular around the world. But is it vegan and cruelty-free? Read on for the full breakdown.
Palmers is an American company founded 150 years ago, selling cocoa butter and coconut oil-based skincare and haircare products. It is now one of the most well-known body care brands in the world, marketed as a cream that works for anyone wanting to smooth stretch marks post-pregnancy.
Is Palmer’s cruelty-free?
No, Palmer’s is not cruelty-free. They state on their website, ‘Palmer's is a "cruelty-free" company and does NOT conduct product tests on animals’, however, they continue to sell in China, where it is required by law to test cosmetic products on animals before selling to consumers. This means that though they state they don’t test on animals, they are still not truly cruelty-free.
Is Palmer’s vegan?
No, palmer’s is not actually cruelty-free as it uses ingredients such as beeswax and lanolin in its products, however even the products that are free from animal products may not be considered vegan either since the company is not cruelty-free.
