Molton Brown is cruelty free but not 100% vegan

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