Estée Lauder's official policy is to test on animals where required by law. Even though the cruelty-free brands they've acquired until now remained cruelty-free, there's no way of saying what's going to happen with Too Faced or BECCA (which was also newly acquired).And even if Too Faced itself remains cruelty-free, every sale is going towards a company that funds animal testing in mainland China.
In the case of MAC, they inherit the policy of their parent company which is to test on animals when required by law. Since they are sold in China where animal testing is mandatory for foreign cosmetics, they are not a cruelty-free brand. Too Faced on the other hand, does not inherit the same animal testing policy of its parent company and they do not test on animals where required by law and do not sell products in China. I hope this helps! 59ce067264
