Dr.Dermal is an award-winning cosmeceutical range aiming to deliver noticeable results after the first use, while also nourishing and conditioning the skin. Before purchasing cosmetics, no matter how compelling it may appear, it is your responsibility to ensure that the business you wish to support is absolutely ethical. This is to avoid funding cruelty towards helpless animals and fellow human beings for something as self-serving as one’s own vanity. On Love, Kaylyn, I am committed to asking the big question and all of the little questions in between, specifically: is Dr.Dermal cruelty-free? I encourage you to simply use this article as a guide on your journey towards living a cruelty-free life.

* We don’t intend pursuing these certifications in the near future as we already have quite a costly regulation and registration burden ahead with our planned entrance to the EU market. The cost to comply with registration requirements for many countries will utilise what budget is allocated for 3rd party verifications.
** Most of our products are vegan- the only two that may not be are the ‘Total Rejuvenation Cleanser’ and ‘Clarifying Cleanser’ as they contain lactic acid that may come from a milk source. We do have another product ‘Texture Correction Lotion’ that contains lactic acid but is from a vegetable source.
Is Dr.Dermal Cruelty-Free?
Dr.Dermal has guaranteed that they are cruelty-free. Due to the fact that Dr.Dermal is currently not certified by a reputable organisation, Dr.Dermal’s word is the only thing that one can rely on. I have explained to them that applying with Beauty Without Cruelty South Africa is free. It is your choice as to whether or not you feel comfortable supporting this business.
