Is Dior Cruelty-Free?
Dior is NOT cruelty-free.
Is Dior Vegan?
Dior might have some vegan products, but I don’t consider any of their products vegan since they test on animals.
Is Dior PETA Certified?
No, Dior is not PETA certified. PETA also lists Dior as a company that tests on animals.
Is Dior Leaping Bunny Certified?
No, Dior is not Leaping Bunny Certified.
Is Dior Owned By A Parent Company That Tests On Animals?
Yes, Dior is owned by LVMH, a company that tests on animals.
Animal Testing in China
Animal Testing is required by law in China for all foreign cosmetics companies. All American and European cosmetic brands that are sold in China must undergo animal testing.
Any brand that chooses to sell their products in China cannot be considered cruelty-free. Even products that can bypass mandatory tests may still be pulled from the shelves by Chinese authorities to be tested on animals.
This does NOT include products that are made in China, only if they are sold in China.
The only way to know if a brand sells products in China is to ask them directly. Make sure to note that Hong Kong is not included in this policy, and neither are products only sold online to Chinese consumers.
Is Dior Sold in Mainland China?
You can see from the image below that Dior sells products in stores in China:

Email to the Company
Before classifying any brand as cruelty-free and vegan, I send them an email with the following questions:
- Are your products vegan? If only some are vegan, which ones?
- Are any of your products or ingredients tested on animals?
- Do you have a Leaping Bunny or PETA certification?
- Do your suppliers or any third parties test animals on your behalf?
- Does your company sell products in mainland China (except Hong Kong)?
- Are you owned by a parent company that tests on animals?
Dior did not have an email easily available on their website, but they did have a chat function. I asked in the chat for an email address to contact with my questions, but they did not provide me with one and told me to ask all of my questions in the chat.
I asked the list of questions above. They were very vague in their answers, and wouldn’t talk to me about China. This is an automatic red flag for me because all of the companies that don’t test on animals are very upfront and direct in their answers. I ended up finding a list of stores in China on their website, which confirmed that they are not cruelty-free.
