Mavala is NOT cruelty-free
No. Mavala is not cruelty-free. This means that they may test some of their finished products or their ingredients on animals; or they may commission a third party to do so.
Some countries, such as Mainland China may require brands to test on animals before selling their products in stores, which also means they are not cruelty-free.
Please not that in EU countries cosmetic companies are forbidden to test their products in animals. Hence, all european cosmetics made in the European Union are cruelty-free.
