Algenist is not 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. Algenist has not joined any known cruelty free programmes; therefore, in 2022, Algenist can not be considered cruelty free. Furthermore, PETA added Algenist to the Companies That Do Test on Animals list, which means that PETA obtained conclusive evidence that Algenist is not cruelty free.

Algenist does not conduct animal testing, nor ask others to test on our behalf, unless required by law, regulation, or a governmental authority.algenist.com
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.
