Yes, it is tested on animals. Dior sells in China, a country that REQUIRES animal testing on all cosmetics, personal care products, home care products etc. While I do not believe Dior performs the actual testing themselves, they do provide samples, funding, and permission for the Chinese government to test their products on animals. mybeautybunny.com, PETA.org, leapingbunny.org, and NAVS.org all have excellent lists of companies that do and/or do not test their products on animals. Just try to remember, however, that ANY company that sells cosmetics, etc. in China does in fact have their products tested on animals. Unfortunately, since Dior as well as any other company that sells its products in China does not perform the actual testing in their own laboratories they can say that they - the company itself- does not test on animals even though they pay the Chinese government to do the testing for them. It is becuase of this requirement in China that many companies that used to be considered cruelty free are no longer deemed to be so.
I don't know but that is a great question. I would love to know if you find out.

Dior does not test on animals.

It seems Dior declines comment when it comes to animal testing. That is troubling for obvious reasons. I bought the sculpting powder compact, which comes with a cute flat brush. I was dismayed to find that the bristles on that brush are so like animal hair, I am pretty sure that they ARE real hairs - but none of the packaging comments on what the brush is made of. I am starting to suspect that silence is admission when it comes to Dior, which makes me sad because I love so many Dior products.
