Yes, Duke Cannon is a 100% cruelty-free brand. This means that the brand doesn’t test or finance the testing of ingredients or by-products on animals.
In fact, the company has released a few commercials in the past showing its love for puppies and other animals. Many in the pet care community are happy with the brand because of its stand on animal welfare.
When a brand tests its ingredients or formulas on animals, then it’s not considered a cruelty-free brand. Moreover, a brand that administers testing on animals through a third party is non-cruelty-free.
Also, any company that sells any of its products in China cannot be considered to be cruelty-free. This is because China requires all brands to finance animal testing before they can sell their products in Mainland China.
This is gradually changing as the Chinese government is considering abolishing this policy. But that is still in the hair.
Does Duke Cannon Have Any Official Certification?
I can’t find any certification from any of the certificate-issuing organizations like Leaping Bunny, PETA, etc.
Where Is Duke Cannon Products Made?
All Duke Cannon products are manufactured in the United States of America.
Does Duke Cannon Test on Animals?
No, the brand doesn’t test on animals. The brand has this to say on its site:
Short answer: hell no. Less short answer: We love puppies. At Duke Cannon, we believe dogs are even better than best friends. A dog, after all, will never call you at 2am to bail him out of jail, and he’ll never subtly hit on your wife. We love dogs. Hardly a day goes by when there isn’t a dog’s presence making our office a better to place to work. We like animals. We don’t even hate cats. As such, we never test on animals. Just interns.
According to the brand, it doesn’t include any animal-derived ingredients or synthetic dyes in its fragrances. The fragrances are also free from sulfates, parabens, phthalates, and other allergens.
When purchasing, it’s still a wise move to ask specific questions if you’re concerned about something. You should also look through the ingredient list on any product so as to be sure you’re getting exactly what you want.
Where Can You Buy Duke Cannon Products?
First, you can buy directly from the dukecannon.com website if you’re accustomed to buying things online. It’s fast and easy and even better than buying offline.
However, if you’d rather go to your local store to see what you want to buy before paying, then you’ll find the brand’s product on the shelves of drugstores and small shops around the US.
You can also use the store locator tool on the official site to locate a store close to you.

The company’s products have a military theme but are available for all men to use.
Can women use their products? Yes, of course. If you’re a woman and reading this right now, you can use Duke Cannon. And pretty much any men grooming product as long as it’s good quality and suitable for you.
Just know that you’re sharing in something that’s made specially for men.
Is Duke Cannon Vegan?
At the moment, I can’t really say the brand is vegan because some of its products contain animal ingredients like tallowate (this contains tallow, a fat that’s derived from the fatty tissue of sheep/cattle).
Most of the brand’s products are vegan though. So, if you’re looking for a 100% vegan brand, it’s not DC. But if you’re okay with being partly vegan, then you’re good to go.
