Animal Testing/Animal By-Products

Do you test on animals?

No. Paula's Choice has never tested on animals at any stage of product development and never will. We also do not contract with any third parties to conduct animal testing on our behalf.

Paula's Choice supports many charities focused on animal welfare such as the Humane Society, ASPCA and NAVS.

Paula's Choice is a dog-friendly office, with most of our employees bringing their canine companions to work each day.

Are Paula's Choice products vegan, or do any of them contain animal by-products?

We’re happy to inform you that the majority of Paula's Choice products contain no animal-derived ingredients. In addition, our Product Development Team has made the commitment to source non-animal derived ingredients whenever possible for new products, or when our existing products undergo a formulary update.

Some of our current skincare or makeup products contain beeswax derived from beehives, lanolin or lanolin derivatives, tallow derivatives, and a few others indicated below. If a product does not appear on the below list, it is free of any animal-derived ingredients.
