This is where you'll find all the big cruelty-free lists. I've gathered them all in one post to make it easy to search. I'm always working on new lists, so let me know what you'd like to see next.

Spread the word.

To find brands, please keep in mind that you can always refine your search on the main List of Cruelty-Free Brands. For example, you can look for brands that are 100% vegan, sell makeup products, and are available in the US. The lists below are here to make it easy to shop for specific products and find the best products in different categories.

By Store

These posts list all the cruelty-free brands available at the stores below. I'm working on more store guides, so please let me know which stores you'd like to see next!


It's surprisingly easy to find cruelty-free makeup brands and transition to cruelty-free makeup. Even some brands you find at your local drugstore are cruelty-free, and there's so much cruelty-free makeup available at Ulta or Sephora. The list of cruelty-free brands below contains 100+ brands to choose from!

Skin Care

Skin care is especially tricky if you're looking for drugstore brands, but if you purchase your skin care products online, you can find a lot of cruelty-free options and many wonderful brands. The skin care list contains brands for every budget.

Personal Care

From feminine hygiene to hair removal, it's easy to transition to cruelty-free products if you know which brands to trust. Most mainstream brands do test on animals when it comes to those kinds of products, so I recommend going for "natural" options (often cruelty-free but not always) or smaller brands. Check the guides below for some cruelty-free alternatives.

Hair Care

I get so many questions about cruelty-free hair care since it's difficult to find good options in most stores. You can sometimes look for "natural" products which can be cruelty-free (although this isn't always the case) or you can shop online for these products. Most drugstore hair products, which includes hair dye, are tested on animals. Visit the guides below to find better alternatives!

Nail Care

The list of cruelty-free nail polish brands below has over 50 cruelty-free alternatives! Many nail polish brands are cruelty-free, including salon-quality brands, so there's no reason to purchase nail polished that's tested on animals.


Beyond makeup and personal care, we can make an effort to only purchase cruelty-free household items such as cleaning products or detergent. These products are also commonly tested on animals, but there are cruelty-free alternatives available.

Let me know what store or product guides you'd like to see next! I hope these guides are helpful in finding cruelty-free options for everything you could possibly need.
