Nécessaire is NOT cruelty free but vegan

Nécessaire is not cruelty free and supports animal testing in countries where it is required by law. The brand might export to mainland China and other countries with mandatory animal testing.

Cruelty free statement

Q: Are your products cruelty-free?

A: We are firmly against animal testing of any kind. However, the U.S. government requires all personal lubricants to undergo extensive efficacy and safety testing—including one animal test—as part of the Food and Drug Administration’s Class II medical device clearance process. It is only after receiving clearance from the FDA that any personal lubricant can be legally marketed to consumers.
