Dermalogica is cruelty free but not 100% vegan

Dermalogica pledges that the brand does not conduct, contract out or fund animal testing in the developing, manufacturing or marketing of their products. Whilst Dermalogica recognises the importance of customer safety, the brand believes this can be sufficiently achieved without animal cruelty. Dermalogica is cruelty free and stands against animal testing. Furthermore, Dermalogica does not export its products to mainland China and/or other countries, where animal testing is required by law.

Cruelty free statement

Q: Does Dermalogica test on animals?

A: No, we do not engage in animal testing, nor do our formulas contain animal-derived ingredients. We are recognised as cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny and PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). Further, we have been recognized by the RSPO (Roundtable of Sustainable Palm Oil) for sourcing palm oil in a manner that does not negatively impact local wildlife.


Dermalogica is an American mid-range skin care brand.

Parent company

Unilever completed the acquisition of Dermalogica in 2015. Unilever is not cruelty free, the company supports animal testing and heavily present on the Chinese beauty market. Despite the acquisition, Dermalogica remains cruelty free.
