Paul Mitchell is cruelty free but not 100% vegan

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

Cruelty free statement

Vegan status

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

Vegan statement

We’ve committed to carrying only vegan leather shear cases and styling accessories, and all of our brushes are made with synthetic bristles rather than animal hair (Because, surprise! Those animals aren’t “donating” their hair to the beauty cause.). In addition to being cruelty-free, nylon brushes are more hygienic since they’re easier to clean and repel bacteria more effectively than animal hair.
