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. We are also Leaping Bunny certified.

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.
