By the way, I’ve listed some of my Sachajuan favorites at the end of this post.

Let’s dive right in!

Is Sachajuan cruelty free? Are Sachajuan products tested on animals?

Sachajuan doesn’t test on animals and is 100% cruelty free.

  • Sachajuan’s finished products aren’t tested on animals by anyone, anywhere in the world
  • The ingredients used in their products are never tested on animals by anyone, anywhere in the world
  • Third parties never test Sachajuan products on animals
  • Sachajuan is not sold in mainland China, or in any country where animal testing is still required by law

At the moment, Sachajuan is not certified or officially approved by any cruelty free certification program (PETA, Leaping Bunny, etc.). However, I hope they get certified soon.

Let’s take a look at the details.

Is Sachajuan sold in China?

No, Sachajuan products are NOT sold in physical stores in mainland China.

Why can’t cruelty free brands sell in mainland China?

Animal testing is still mandatory for all imported products sold in physical stores in mainland China.

Pre-market animal testing is required for all imported products, and non-routine post-market testing on animals may also be done in cases of customer complaints.

However, please keep in mind that this doesn’t apply to products sold in stores at the airports, or in Hong Kong.

Also, products can be sold online and shipped to mainland China without being tested on animals.

Is Sachajuan owned by a parent brand? If yes, is it cruelty free?

Sachajuan is not owned by another parent company.

This brand was founded back in 2003 by successful Stockholm-based hairdressers Sacha Mitic and Juan Rosenlind.

Is Sachajuan vegan?

Sachajuan is not 100% vegan. Most of their products are vegan, but Sachajuan is not a vegan brand.
