James Read is cruelty free but not 100% vegan

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