Is Clean & Clear Cruelty Free?

The short answer: No, Clean & Clear is not entirely cruelty free.

The long answer: Clean & Clear is a brand known for producing dermatologist-approved skin care products. It is manufactured and distributed by the American consumer goods and pharmaceutical company, Johnson & Johnson.

On their official website, they answer the question: Do you test your products on animals? The brand states, “We want you to feel good about how we make Clean & Clear products. You can only do that if you have the facts. The fact is, Clean & Clear doesn’t conduct animal testing of our cosmetic products anywhere in the world, except in the rare situation where governments or laws require it. At Clean & Clear, we won’t ever compromise on the quality or safety of our products or stop seeking alternatives to animal testing.”

Just like other J&J brands AVEENO and Neutrogena, Clean & Clear is also available in China. And that is the reason why they needed to include the phrase “except in the rare situation where governments or laws require it” in their testing policy. Imported skin care products are obligated by Chinese law to undergo testing, which are sadly done on animals. Plus, their products can go through testing when a customer files a complaint. 

Until Clean & Clear stops selling their products in China or China changes their regulations, the brand cannot claim to be 100% cruelty free.
