Welcome!

welcome

I’m really glad you found my site! Let me tell you a bit more about Cruelty-Free Kitty.

I created this site for beauty addicts like myself. I want to show you that finding amazing, high-quality cruelty-free makeup and beauty products is easy — no matter your budget.

I believe in the necessity of a cruelty-free revolution. With the technology available today, the 21st century should be completely free of the old, outdated research method that is animal testing.

As consumers, we can make a real change by choosing which brands we support.


What you’ll find here is first of all a complete list of resources.

If you want to learn more about everything cruelty-free, check out this blog series:


In addition to the lists I maintain, I also update this blog frequently with product reviews, cruelty-free dupes, beauty tips, shopper’s guides, “best of” cruelty-free guides, and more! I also keep my readers updated with the latest cruelty-free news.

    I have used Bare Minerals for years, but now that I have a beagle who was used in a lab for all of his 5 years, I want to go cruelty free. Do you know of any product similar to Bare Minerals that doesn’t test? I’m not into creams and liquids. Thanks.

    • http://www.crueltyfreekitty.com/ Suzi

      Oh wow, major props to you for adoping your beagle. There are quite a few mineral makeup brands that are similar to BM. I would look into Everyday Minerals, Alima Pure, Lily Lolo, Youngblood and Meow Cosmetics. I hope you find something you like!

    • Arianna McNally

      We should talk! I love my Arbonne the cosmetics are similar to bare minerals but they’re all cruelty free, vegan, pure, safe, and beneficial.

      Thank you Ana-Sophia, I’m really glad you’re finding this helpful!!

    Hey there! Have you looked at Arbonne yet? I just looked briefly at your list & didn’t see them. But they’ve been around for 35 years & have been Vegan for all 35!

    • Arianna McNally

      I’m an arbonne rep and I have to tell you I will never go back to any of the other brands I was using before. After learning what goes into many of the products available at stores like ulta or target, I’m glad I have a pure, safe and beneficial brand I trust.

  • Lissette Gonzalez

    I love your website, and I recently made the decision to stop buying products that test on animals. However, I’m still looking for a facewash that I like, I currently have a Burt’s Bees one but I’m not a fan. Do you have any recommendations for any face washes that also exfoliate?

    • http://www.crueltyfreekitty.com/ Suzi

      Hi Lissette! Definitely look into Paula’s Choice! They have a very wide selection of products and great exfoliators.

  • Natasha Gusmão

      Aww, thank so much Natasha!!

  • http://www.crueltyfreekitty.com/ Suzi

    Correct, I believe Too Faced’s founders are still looking to sell their company but nothing was finalized.

  • Gopika

    This is amazing, I love it ❤️💘❤️💘❤️💘

  • Nikki Tartaglia- Kaldawy

    I love Arbonne’s cosmetics, any thoughts on them?

    • Arianna McNally

      Arbonne always has and always will be cruelty free and vegan. If you have any questions, I’m an Arbonne consultant and I’d be more than happy to answer them.

    I just messaged my daughter in law telling her I now want to go over to Astonish for household products, this was her response “I just think it’s a con, the ingredients will have been animal tested, bleach is animal tested and some say they contain bleach?”
    what can I say to that?

    • http://www.crueltyfreekitty.com/ Suzi

      Hi Lisa! The fact is that most of chemicals have been tested on animals at some point in time. But it doesn’t justify MORE animal testing! There are thousands of safe ingredients that companies can choose from for their products, and they don’t require any more animal testing. On the other hand, some companies keep testing on animals even though there’s no need for even more testing.

    Hello I an totally new to this and I was wondering if all this cruelty free products are The same in All the countrys (I am for Switzerland so Sorry for my bad english). I think that the laws in my country aren’t the same for the US so I just wanted to ask if You know something 😉 thanks

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

      Hello Selene! Je suppose que tu parles francais? :) Pour repondre a ta question, si une compagnie est cruelty-free, alors elle est cruelty-free partout dans le monde. J’espere que ca repond a ta question, sinon dis-le moi!

  • Michelle

    I have just made a very late new years resolution and the biggest thing I wanted to change was to stop using all cosmetics that had any link to animal cruelty and I have been busy trying to search through all the corporate websites and I have to say, getting a definitive answer is a lot harder than I though it would be! I am so glad that I have stumbled across this website but slightly saddened that it is US as it means that it isn’t that relevant to me over here in England. Does anyone happen to know of a similar resource over here? Thank you so much!

  • Jarrod Williamson

    Hello!! So I just have a question regarding a certain product that I love a lot but I can’t seem to have any success at finding out whether or not they are actually cruelty free. I have tried looking them up on many apps and websites but nothing comes up… However I went to the company’s FAQs and they claim to be cruelty free so what should I do? Should I believe them? I would really love the help!

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

      Hey Jarrod! One thing you could do is e-mail the company yourself. Especially ask them if their suppliers on animals or if their products are sold in mainland China.

  • Elie Campos

    Korean skincare is all the rave right now. Which ones if any are cruelty free?

  • Rosa Orrala

    I love this website !! so much has been put into this and hopeully people start opening their eyes like i did about animals being tested in many popular products. I have showed my friends this website and we see how changing to cruety-free make up will make a big change .

  • Emily

    Any update regarding if they are cruelty free brand or not? Thanks

  • Daisy Bvrodlygranski

    Hi is japonesque a cruelty free brand? Also I believe dr. Denis gross skincare isn’t cruelty free. Most Asian countries are not cruelty free or carry much cruelty free brands. I know innisfree is. How I know, its natural brand but not handmade. You should check them out. So we all can know more about cruelty free Korean skincare brands.

    Hello! I must say I loooove your site! I was just curious at to whether Jafra is cruelty free or not? Considering being a rep, but not if they are testing?? Looking forward to your response thank you so much!! :-)

  • Andy

    I’ve recently gone cruelty free and I’m cleaning my make up animal-torturer haul. Somebody knows if Astor, Jafra and Rimmel is cruelty-free? also I’ve read a lot about Revlon, on their website and other statements they cley to be no-testing-on-animals UNLESS THE COUNTRY LAWS REQUIRE IT (they sell on China) but does that means all of their products are animal tested? or just the ones that are to be distributed in china?

  • Tegan

  • Anne Molina

    Do you have a list that is for brands BOTh vegan and cruelty-free? I was moving between two different lists to figure things out.

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

      Not all in one list. My main list has vegan brands marked with “100% vegan”.
