Murad is cruelty free but not 100% vegan

Murad does not and will not conduct animal testing on the finished products or ingredients, nor does it ask others to test on its behalf. All necessary tests are carried out on human volunteers. The brand does not export to mainland China and other countries with mandatory animal testing. Murad is proudly cruelty free and firmly stands against animal testing.

Cruelty free statement

Murad never tests any products on animals & uses only ingredients that have not been animal tested. We only test on humans. We do sell our products in Hong Kong but not mainland China so we are not required to test on animals.


Murad is an American premium skin care brand.

Parent company

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


PETA awarded Murad with the Beauty Without Bunnies certification.
