DHC Deep Cleansing Oil is undoubtedly a cult product. DHC was one of the first brands to introduce a cleaning oil. Launched in 1995, at that time it was unthinkable to use oil to remove makeup and to this day DHC Deep Cleansing Oil has a loyal fan base in all parts of the world. Sadly DHC is not cruelty free, DHC sells its products in mainland China, where animal testing is required by law.

Cruelty Free UK compiled a list of cruelty free alternatives to DHC Deep Cleansing Oil for every budget, all these products are cruelty free and ethically made.
