Mother Dirt is cruelty free but not 100% vegan

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

Cruelty free statement

Q: Are your products vegan and cruelty-free?

A: Mother Dirt products are never tested on animals and do not contain animal-derived ingredients. All safety data we use is from non-animal based studies.


Mother Dirt is an American mid-range skin care brand.

Parent company

Mother Dirt is an independent company but it does have a science partnership with AOBiome. AOBiome is not cruelty free.

Because we believe in being fully honest and transparent, we want to make you aware that Mother Dirt has a science partnership with AOBiome, LLC, a biopharmaceutical company engaged in high level bio-therapeutic research and testing.

The FDA requires animal testing as part of their process to ensure that pharmaceuticals are both safe and effective. There is currently legally no way around this process. These are not Mother Dirt products.


Currently Mother Dirt s not certified by any major animal rights organisation.

Vegan status

Not all Mother Dirt products are suitable for vegans. Please always check the ingredient list of the product before making a purchase.

Vegan statement

We like sharing our ingredients—they’re very simple. Mother Dirt products are gluten and dairy-free and vegan-friendly. The AO+ Mist is the only product in our line that is a probiotic.
