The Laundress is cruelty free but not 100% vegan

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

Cruelty free statement

And it’s safe and easy for us to be cruelty free thanks to our insistence on using only non-toxic, biodegradable, and allergen-free materials.


The Laundress is an American premium eco-friendly brand. Main products are detergents, fabric care and home cleaning products.

Parent company

Unilever completed the acquisition of The Laundress in 2019. Unilever is not cruelty free, the company supports animal testing and heavily present on the Chinese beauty market. Despite the acquisition, The Laundress remains cruelty free.
