Revlon’s Animal Testing Policy
Revlon’s animal testing policy can be found in the footer section of their home page. Here is what it states:
“Revlon does not conduct animal testing and has not done so for decades. We comprehensively test all of our products using the most technologically advanced methods available to ensure they are both innovative and safe to use. We believe that all women should have the opportunity to express themselves through makeup and we sell our products in many markets around the world. Regulatory authorities in some countries conduct independent testing in order to satisfy their own mandatory registration requirements and a limited number of these countries have not yet adopted alternative testing methods. While Revlon complies with the requirements for safety in all of these countries, we continue to collaborate with other companies to advocate for the adoption of alternative testing methods and the elimination of animal testing around the world.”

Wrap Up: Is Revlon Animal Cruelty-Free?
No, Revlon is not a cruelty-free makeup brand. In their animal testing policy, they state they do not test on animals. However, Revlon chooses to sell in China, a country that requires imported cosmetics to be tested on animals.
Therefore, Revlon is not considered to be cruelty-free. They will be added to my list of brands that test on animals.
