At Cruelty-Free Kitty, we reach out to new brands weekly in order to find out their animal testing policy. Based on their response, we classify them are either "cruelty-free," "not cruelty-free," or "grey area." Only brands that are able to answer all our questions and fulfill our cruelty-free criteria are considered cruelty-free. Below are the brands we've added to the database last quarter.

Spread the word.

The Cruelty-Free 5: Our Criteria

All brands that we classify as cruelty-free have confirmed the following:

  • Their company doesn't test finished products or ingredients on animals
  • Their suppliers don't test finished products or ingredients on animals
  • No third parties test their finished products or ingredients on their behalf
  • They do not test on animals where required by law
  • Their products are not sold in stores in countries that require animal testing

New Brands Added: Cruelty-Free

The brands below have confirmed that they're truly cruelty-free. This means that no animal testing is performed on their products at any level during production and beyond.

New Brands Added: NOT Cruelty-Free

These brands are either available in countries that still require animal testing prior to selling, or they have disclosed that they do test on animals whenever a regulatory group requires them to do so.

  • Prada Beauty - this brand is available in countries that still require animal testing
  • Waso - this brand shares the same animal testing policy as its parent company, Shiseido

New Brand Added: Grey Area

These brands either did not respond to our multiple attempts to contact them, or they didn't prove enough information by addressing all our questions. To encourage them to be transparent about their cruelty-free status, you can try reaching out to them on social media and via email.

Status Changes

  • Merle Norman was moved to the non cruelty-free list because they test on animals where required by the law.
  • Honest Beauty was moved to our cruelty-free list as they clarified their policy on animal testing and confirmed that their suppliers do not engage in animal testing.
  • Laura Mercier was moved from the grey area to the non cruelty-free as they confirmed in their policy that they test on animals where required by law.
