Murad is cruelty free but not 100% vegan

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

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 mid-range 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
