Penhaligon’s is cruelty free but not 100% vegan

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

Cruelty free statement

Q: Are any of your products tested on animals?

A: None of our products, nor the ingredients that go into them, are tested on animals – and we only work with people who abide by the same strict standards. We never ship our products to markets that would require such testing.


Penhaligon’s is a British premium perfume house.

Parent company

Puig completed the acquisition of Penhaligon’s in 2015. Puig is not cruelty free, the company supports animal testing and heavily present on the Chinese beauty market. Despite the acquisition, Penhaligon’s remains cruelty free.


Currently Penhaligon’s is not certified by any major animal rights organisation.
