Aldi own label cosmetics, toiletries and household products is cruelty free.

At present, unless the brand has proven its cruelty free status by joining a cruelty free programme, it should not be considered cruelty free. Aldi has joined the Leaping Bunny Programme via Cruelty Free International; therefore, in 2022, Aldi should be rightfully considered cruelty free.

Our standard:

Cruelty Free Claim ≠ Cruelty Free Brand

Cruelty Free UK

Animal testing is a very complex subject, and despite years of fighting against it, animal testing is still happening everywhere in the world, including the most developed economies. Therefore, only by submitting legally binding documentation signed by the brand and its suppliers to the internationally recognised animal rights organisations, such as Leaping Bunny and PETA, and getting approved, can the brand prove and rightfully claim that it is cruelty-free. At present, only the established animal rights groups have the resources and capacity to verify cruelty free status.

In 2022, Aldi cruelty free status is verified by Leaping Bunny; therefore, Aldi should be regarded as cruelty free.
