Ole Henriksen is cruelty free but not 100% vegan

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


Ole Henriksen is a Danish mid-range skin care brand.

Parent company

Kendo completed the acquisition of Ole Henriksen in 2011. Kendo is a PETA certified, cruelty free group but it also has a parent company LVMH, which isn’t cruelty free. Despite the acquisition, Ole Henriksen remains against animal cruelty.


  • PETA awarded Ole Henriksen with the Beauty Without Bunnies certification
