    Urban Decay was recently bought out by Loreal so theyre now considered to not be cruelty free. Nars parent company, Shiseido, is also not cruelty free. And Tarte is owned by Kose which test on animals

      Hi Katie, all these brands are still considered to be cruelty-free themselves, which is why I choose to list them as an option. They don’t test on animals and don’t sell in China. My list of cruelty-free brands states every non-cruelty-free parent company.

    • Marie Therese Pecot

      Some companies that don’t test on animals are still owned by parent companies who do test. For example, although Burt’s Bees does not test on animals, they are owned by the Clorox Co. which does. Some brands are slippery slopes. Do your homework.

    Suzi, what do the * next to the brand names listed under Sephora signify? Also, Bath and Body Works still says “No animal testing” on their packaging but I’ve been reading otherwise. Do you know the current truth? Thank you.

    • http://www.crueltyfreekitty.com/ Suzi | Cruelty-Free Kitty

      Those brands are cruelty-free themselves, but their parent company still tests on animals. As for Bath & Body Works, they’re no longer cruelty-free as they test on animals where required by law (and might have started selling in mainland China). Hope this helps. :)

    I just started my YouTube channel and decided I would only use products that are cruelty free, and you blog has helped me so much. I like that you are very up to date and in my opinion reliable. Keep doing what you’re doing!!!!

      Thank you, I’m really glad you find it helpful! Don’t hesitate to leave me a link to your channel!

    I’m so glad I found this blog. I live in the UK, but my bf is in the US. Whenever I visit him I struggle to know where I can shop for cruelty-free products. Unlike the UK which has the leaping bunny logo, when you’re out and about it’s not always obvious by just looking at packaging whether something is cruelty-free or not. I often buy from Bath and Body Works because their packaging say’s Not Tested On Animals, but now I can see that this might not be the case. Now I’ve found your blog, I’m sure I’ll be able to find wonderful cruelty-free brands to replace the one’s I was buying from without realising.

      That’s awesome to hear, thank you Becca! :)

    Unfortunately, I can’t use Sephora. Sephora brand make up is sold in their shops in China which means their products have to be tested. So disappointed, such a great site :(

    • Marie Therese Pecot

      I they do not sell their products in China, they are not obligated by Chinese law to test on innocent animals.

  • Marie Therese Pecot

    Also, do not think that ‘vegan’ means natural or organic. Vegan simply means it has no ingredients from animals are used. Some chemicals are ‘vegan’ too unfortunately.

    credo in SF and integrity botanicals are good retailers.

    Has anyone heard of a makeup brand called “Jay Manuel”? Does anyone know if they are cruelty-free and/or vegan? Thx!

  • Meaghan

    Petit Vour is a great place to buy cruelty-free beauty products. They offer a monthly subscription box ($15) and you can purchase full size products on their website. They offer free shipping if you spend over a certain amount, usually over $50.

    I have started purchasing all of my inexpensive, cruelty-free beauty products at Fresh Thymes where I purchase organic fruit and vegetables as well as chemical-free cleaning products. And I do need to clean my home frequently because I have 12 rescued cats. Yesterday while shopping for Nubian Heritage Body Lotion, I read my FIRST fake rabbit symbol on NutriBiotic Body and Foot Powder. I really need the foot powder and want to purchase a talc and paraben free product since I’m a runner! I pitched my Gold Bond Body Powder since I don’t believe that this product is cruelty-free. This NutriBiotic fake rabbit symbol is surrounded by the words “Not Tested on Animals.” Help!!!

    I started a while ago using only non animal tested stuff as in shampoo, makeup and even cleaning supplies. In this day and age there is no reason to test on animals.

  • Karla Siegel

    IT cosmetics is now sold at Sephora and Ultra stores and they do not test on animals.
