List of Cruelty-Free (No Animal Testing and Ingredients) Korean Cosmetic Brands

So, someone dropped a comment asking me whether a particular brand is cruelty-free or not. And being the procrastinator student I was, I did some research of it and casually neglected the paper and essay of my life. Yeah. What can I do. I like to write about Korean cosmetics more than finishing a paper. After reading some blogs and clicking this and that, I finally landed on Korea Animal Rights Advocates (KARA) site (and here's the Korean site). Let's jump onto the list.

For 2015 we've produced a new edition of the scorecard, recalculating each company's score to account for their progress (or lack thereof) during 2014. The scores Company Updates.

Unfortunately there are few companies switching to non-use of palm oil, so we expanded the list to include companies that source ‘certified sustainable’ palm oil or are aiming to in the future. However, there is growing uncertainty in the green community about the reliability of ‘green’ palm oil, with many environmental organizations including Greenpeace, dubbing all palm oil sources certified by the RSPO and other organizations as ‘greenwash’.
