Formula (formerly known as Formula Absolute) by Marks & Spencer is cruelty free but not 100% vegan

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