This list is for those who wish to avoid brands that test on animals or fund animal testing, and purchase only from the brands that have been vetted as cruelty-free. This means that the brands on our list have confirmed that no animal testing is performed on their finished products or ingredients during production, either by their company, their suppliers, or any third parties.

In order to ensure the brands we support do not put themselves at risk of animal testing, we do not consider brands that sell in China to be cruelty-free even if they use certain loopholes.

For brands that do test on animals, make sure to visit our list of Companies That Test On Animals.

Our Criteria

All the brands found on this list were vetted to be cruelty-free, meaning:

  • Finished Products: Their finished products are not tested on animals by the company or any other company.
  • Ingredients: Their ingredients are not tested on animals by the company or any other company.
  • Suppliers: Their suppliers do not test ingredients, raw materials, or finished products on animals.
  • Third Parties: No third party is testing their finished products or ingredients animal on their behalf.
  • Required by Law: They don’t test on animals where the law requires it, and are not sold in mainland China.

Using This List

The complete list of cruelty-free brands is displayed below. You can also choose filters to find exactly what you’re looking for by clicking the “Refine” button.

For example, you can look for cruelty-free hair care sold at Ulta, or choose to filter by skincare brands that are Leaping Bunny certified and 100% vegan and ship to your country, and so on. This system makes it easy to find cruelty-free brands that are tailored to you and your needs.

    Thank you for this detailed informative listing, I did share to my facebook. (like a shared a similar listing for made in America products for our Made In America Christmas). I appreciate the efforts people are making toward ending animal cruelty.

  • Vanessa says:

    PLSSSSS I’m begging can u do review about tir tir I cannot find information an if it’s cruelty free or not..

  • Cristine says:

    Hi there, on this article https://www.crueltyfreekitty.com/cruelty-free-101/makeup-brands-that-test-on-animals/ you said that Bare Minerals is part of a larger group that sell in China and therefore allow testing on animals and on the list on the article where I’m replying on (https://www.crueltyfreekitty.com/list-of-cruelty-free-brands/) you’re saying they are cruelty free.

    I don’t understand. Support a sub-group of a larger corp that allows this in China is supporting testing. Do you have a list of COMPLETELY cruelty free products, that are not connected to anyone else that does test in their group? I’m not paying for something that will in the end just fuel the animal testing requirements, sorry the Chinese will never have my respect.

    Would love a true cruelty free list if you have an updated one.

  • varvara ryaboshapka says:

    Can you check floral street?? They claim to be cruelty free and have wonderful fragrances.

  • Dawn-Marie Donne says:

    Keep up your wonderful work and dedication to such a very important issue. I have taken the decision not to use certain brands (which I love and have used with great pleasure) for many years because of their stance on animals testing. Thanks to your excellent list of cruelty free alternatives, I have been able to replace most of these products and the couple remaining that I can’t well, I just have to remind myself that I cannot use with them a clear conscience. I know quite a few people who feel the same way as I do and have also turned to cruelty free products, not just for beauty but right through the home, at similar cost and performance and sometimes cheaper. Thank you.

  • Jane shakeshaft says:

    Is ultimate definition cruelty free it doesn’t say anything on the box

  • Kathy says:

    So grateful for the work you do to keep us informed of what products are TOTALLY Cruelty Free. If I google a brand, I always bypass information provided by other sites and go straight to yours!

  • Hermon says:

    241 cosmetics doesn’t test on animals either.

  • Annie says:

    I am trying to find out if Uriel products are cruelty free. Thanks!

  • Ciara McGinnis says:

    With the reference to China, with the new laws now in place can it still be so point blank not cruelty free just for selling there? Reading up on it it seems that the onus is on the brands to get certified themselves and trade still in China while being cruelty free too.

  • Barbaro Skett says:

    I’ve only heard of 2 of those in the Uk on your list, which are Barry M & Boots.

  • Sarah says:

    Thank you so much for this list. I try to buy cruelty free as much as possible but there are so many layers to being cruelty free it gets overwhelming. I was wondering about the brands Good Molecules and Color Science. They advertise as cruelty free but I can’t find them on any list.
    Thanks again!

  • Caroline Reyes says:

    thank you

    i will spread the word

  • yuliana says:

    hola que tal, quisiera saber si Dove es libre de crueldad animal, no lo vi en la lista, pero han sacado comerciales diciendo que son libres de crueldad, no se si me esten engañando, quedo atenta

    • Jessica Campos says:

      Talbez porque apenas son nuevos en el mundo “Cruelty free”. No era antes, testeaban a animales.
      Como CoverGirl por ejemplo. Ellos fueron uno de los mayores que hacian crueldades.
      Ahora, ya no.
      Personalmente, yo no voy a comprar esos que ahora ya son cruelty free. Porque? Ni les importaron los animales antes. Me pongo feliz porque ahora ya no lo hazen y les agradezco pero ellos en mi mente lo hazen porque el vegano esta de “moda”? o porque les importa los animales.
      Tambien decirles gracias…

  • Sara Haddox says:

    Proud of these companies wish there was more

  • MissIcklePetal says:

    I have been a silent push, trying to help peta with signing petitions. And have become aware of many products that are not animal friendly, and is created through cruelty on animals and destroying our Nature and planet.
    Myself and my family have become more aware and relearning of products that we can use and what we will stop using. Broke our hearts learning how many companies do animal cruelty testing on their products.

  • Yamini West says:

    Not accurate yet. Colourpop is cruelty free and vegan as well as based and shipped from L.A., CA, USA.

  • karen may says:

    Thank yiou for these list. I will try to make sure that I never buy from them again.

    • Ciara says:

  • JD says:

    Why isn’t Body Shop on there? They are what I use and they are apparently the biggest anti animal testing people around.
    Pls advise.

  • Luke says:

    I have a question, as I am new in this cruelty free world and sometimes it can be confusing whether a brand is really cruelty free or not. So is Apivita cruelty free in 2021? I have not found it on the list, but on google I have found it does not test on animals at all.

  • Anahita Ghaznavian Haghighi says:

    Thanks for your great informations.
    I wanted to know if “Schon” brand is cuerlty-free or not?

  • Paola says:

    I believe Farmasi (turkish cosmetics/hygiene/body and hair product company) is also a cruelty free brand. Could you please confirm?

  • Victoria says:

    Hi guys
    Who knows any information about LUMENE brand ? Made in Finland
    Must be cruelty free but could find in the list in here

  • You can’t do this stop animal testing!!!!

  • Hailey says:

    This is NOT okay and it needs to end. Animals still feel things too, they are not just your puppets!

  • Lili says:

    We should stop doing this

  • Mimi says:

    hopefully the world will be a better olace for the animals since we are only borrowing it from them and they had live here ling mer than us <33

  • Patricia Riley says:

    SBC (Simply Beautiful Cosmetics), Soul Skin Vegan Beauty, and Hayo’u products are cruelty free.

  • Patricia Riley says:

    Hi. Soul Skin vegan beauty is cruelty free, so is Simply Beautiful Cosmetics (SBC), and Hayo’u products.

  • Nina says:

    The list is great. However many of these brands sell in China where by law anything sold their must be first tested on animals.
    Even though we may purchase cruelty free of the same brand in our countries. Surely it’s about the entire efficacy of the brand. Those that don’t sell into China deserve their own section. It’s not so cut & dry I believe.

  • Veronica Wagstaff says:

    Hi, could you do a post about some of the dollar tree cosmetic brands such as L.A Colors, sassy + chic, and stuff like that. thanks!

  • DAWN MORAND says:

    Is Limelife by Alcone on your list?

  • Gwen says:

    I wish companies owned by parent companies weren’t included. I understood the logic years ago… hoping that these huge companies would see how well they could do with cruelty free companies, and hope that they followed suit. However, I think it’s just become another market for them the same way a hair coloring brand has several colors to meet several markets. They aren’t going to stop making “auburn” just because “chestnut” is doing well. They see that there is a market in both areas. So it’s more like… “hey, we can make great money selling burts bees, and it costs a little more to make, but we will charge more.” Likewise “We also need more affordable brands and many people don’t care what we test on, so we will still make those products to serve that client base.” Win for them with no compromise.

    I don’t think these big companies are stupid. They see that they can split the difference and they know there is some endorsement for them from sites like this one, leaping bunny, and peta… despite the fact that most of their money comes from abusing animals. I find this so hypocritical and I just can’t understand the justification for it as it clearly isn’t changing their minds about animal testing.

  • Gwen says:

    Hi… Just wondering about JR Watkins. I notice on the leaping bunny site that they have a notation next to the brand that indicates they are owned by a parent company that tests on animals. However, your site says they aren’t. So I’m not sure which is true? I’ve tried looking it up and came up with some jacob company, but nothing really on them. Any information on this?

  • Jas says:

    There’s some nail polish brands that claim to be vegan and/or cruelty free.
    They are BELLE EN ARGENT and COLOR CLUB. You might want to check them out?

  • Dona says:

    This is such a great list. There is so much confusion out there and this makes it much easier to know where to shop. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for cruelty-free skincare that doesn’t use oils in their creams. I struggle with skincare because when I use oil on my skin or creams with oils, I develop oil packets that then have to be removed (a bit painful). Most cruelty-free companies use oil in their creams, which I can’t use. So, I end up not using any moisturizer and it shows. 🙁 Any recommendations would be very welcome.

  • Suzanne Marie Tryon says:

    Hello Suzanna
    I would like to know if Skinn cosmetics and Beakman 1802 are cruety free?

    they are both sold on Home Shopping Network

  • Nat says:

    Thank you so much for all of your work on this list – and it must have been an incredible amount of work to compile. It is an excellent resource and we are very grateful for you putting in the time, research hours and money to maintain the website so that we don’t have to.
    Keep up the great work! The animals and we humans thank you.

  • Megan Holloway says:

    I really appreciate all the research that goes into this. I want to know this stuff, but wouldn’t do all the research to find out. Thanks! Also, could you find out if the brand Golden Rose is cruelty free?

  • Eve Oates says:

    Are any Scentsy products tested on animals or their ingredients pls as they not on this.list

  • Jen says:

    Is Bodycology or Body fantasy cruelty free as in they don’t sell to China?

  • G says:

    Why is IT cosmetics on your list when IT cosmetics is owned by Loreal? Loreal isn’t cruelty free.

  • What does it mean to have a blank at the end of the line

  • Jume says:

    Thank you for creating and updating Cruelty-Free Kitty!

    1. Is it possible to regain cruelty-free status after testing the products on animals (for example in China)?

    2. If China stops animal testing, will some brands who are now selling in China become cruelty free?

    3. If a brand has history with animal testing, will it stay on Cruelty-Free Kitty web site even if a brand regains cruelty free status?


    • Suzana Rose says:

      Hi Jume!

      1. Yes. Examples include Smashbox, Omorovicza, and Boscia.
      2 & 3. Still to be determined! I want to do what makes the most sense, and brands would most likely fall under different categories (i.e. those that tested on animals in China vs those that were always cruelty-free).

  • Emma says:

    Great list of shops! It’s a pity you can buy only online, but it’s better to have a choice. Thank you for sharing!

  • Jino Moreto says:

    Abel Odor perfumes mention that they are cruelty free. Are they included in your list?

  • Franchesca says:

    Hola!, soy de chile, tengo una duda con respecto a belcorp (ésika, L’BEL y cyzone), soy consultora y no estoy segura si testean o no en animales, no tienen una certificación, solamente agregan en sus catálogos (algunos productos) que no testaen en animales.
    Saludos!, gracias por la información ????.

  • Felix Werner says:

    Danke für den hilfreichen Artikel! Prima Tipp.

  • Heather says:

    Love this website, but when looking at the CF list, I get adverts from MAC and Avon which aren’t CF – advertising from non CF brands seems a bit hypocritical since this is a CF website ????

    • Suzana Rose says:

      Hi Heather. Our ads are based on each user’s browsing history unfortunately, and we have no control over them. 🙁 Getting rid of ads has been one of my long-term goals with CFK, and I’m actively working on it!

  • Janine says:

    I love this list! So helpful. I wish animal testing would be banned, this is not okay but we have the power as the consumers!

  • Julianne says:

    How can I search for a specific company to see if it is/is not cruelty free according to this list? I can’t find where to insert a company name or product to search.

  • Eva T says:

  • y sea says:

  • Hannah says:

    Is Farmacy cruelty free?

  • Ashley says:

    EVENPRIME skincare is also cruelty-free AND vegan (not a single product is tested on animals + they ensure their ingredients don’t harm water ecosystems).

  • Jennifer says:

    Just noticed I couldn’t find Aveda and Dermalogica on the cruelty free list. I believe they belong there

  • Joanne Davis says:

    Is Dr. Teal’s cruelty-free? Thanks

  • Pia says:

    Hello! Is Certain Dri cruelty-free? I saw it on the deodorant section under the guides tab, but it is not on this main list so I just wanted to make sure.

  • Jessica says:

    I am surprised that Burt’s Bees has a parent company that tests on animals. I thought they were a company by themselves.

  • Rebecca Clews says:

    hi I sell phb ethical beauty products and they are leaping bunny certified and vegan. I wondered if you might obviously check for yourself and then add them to your list? Rebecca x x

  • Jenson Major says:

    How can we trust this list, when you list Bulldog on there and “Although Bulldog is cruelty-free, they’re owned by Edgewell, a company that tests on animals”.
    That’s not a true cruelty free company.

  • Karen says:

  • Tram says:

    Thank you

  • Dan says:

  • Ash says:

    Is purology cruelty free?

  • Beth A Steidl says:

    I would also like to add Avon to the list. Is Avon Cruelty Free 2019?
    Opposition to animal testing and respect for animal welfare has been a cornerstone of Avon’s product safety program since 1989 when Avon became the first major cosmetic company to end animal testing. We do not test on animals today. Instead, we use non-animal product safety testing methods. Also, Dove is no longer testing it’s products on animals.

  • Beth A Steidl says:

    I would like to add L’Oreal to the list of cruelty free companies. I contacted them and this is their response: Thank you for your interest in Garnier, a brand of The L’Oréal Group.

    Our consumers’ health and safety have always been an absolute priority for L’Oréal. As is the support of animal welfare.

    L’Oréal has developed a very rigorous safety evaluation procedure of its products, backed by research. Well before the question of animal testing was raised by civil society or within a regulatory framework, L’Oréal has been committed to new methods of assessing safety that don’t involve animals. A true pioneer, L’Oréal has been reconstructing human skin models in laboratories to elaborate in vitro safety tests since 1979, as an alternative to animals. In 1989, L’Oréal completely ceased testing its products on animals, thus 14 years before the regulation required so. Today, L’Oréal no longer tests its ingredients on animals and no longer tolerates any exception to this rule.

    Certain health authorities may nevertheless decide to conduct animal tests themselves for certain cosmetic products, as it is still the case in China. L’Oréal has been the most active company working alongside the Chinese authorities and scientists for over 10 years to have alternative testing methods recognized, and permit the cosmetic regulation to evolve towards a total and definite elimination of animal testing. Thanks to this, since 2014, certain products manufactured and sold in China like shampoo, body wash or make-up are no longer tested on animals.

    Hello! Another brand that takes pride in their products and are Naturally derived is Rejuva Minerals. They are a member of PETA and do not test on animals. They are listed on the PETA website which I take quite seriously. Their Mega Lash mascara is amazing! I’m so glad I found a makeup company that cares about what goes into their products!

  • Amy says:

    Im a physician assistant in dermatology. I am plant based for eating but want to move into using more creulty free products. I can make a difference when I recommend them to 30 patients a day also. Are there any mainstream brands like Neutragena, or Eucerin that are creulty free or trying to become that? I cant recommend expensive products, that are hard to fine, things that I have a lot of preservatives or fragrance in them to patients. This is why I usually go with the mainline brands. It is very difficult. Would love your help. Thank you foryour dedication!

  • Nicolle says:


    I was wondering if Kara Beauty brand are animal cruelty free? They said on their website they are vegan and animal cruelty free…is this true?

  • Jessie says:

    Hey, I’m really confused because my favorite makeup brand, Nyx, in the las 6 months,maybe a bit more, they don’t have the cruelty free logo anymore. On all their products. But it’s still on the cruelty free list on this site, and everywhere i looked. So i don’t know what to think anymore. I wrote an email to them specifically asking about Nyx, and the didn’t even answer my question, instead the fed me this crap, saying that”Loreal has always been a cruelty free brand”. So I wrote back, asking politely again ABOUT NYX, and to not lying to customer.Unsurprisingly, i did not hear back from the. So does any know anything about that, please?

  • Yaling says:

  • Ana says:

    Hi! First of all, let me just say: thank you! It’s been only a couple of months since I’ve started investigating about cruelty free products and your lists, your guides, everything you write has been such a huge help! I was appalled by the quantity of not cruelty free products I had at home. But now, thanks to people like you, I am at peace, knowing I’m not contributing anymore for this (still!) existing cruel reality, and actively daily searching new vegan and sustainable brands!

    Now, do you know if Uriage is cruelty free? I keep looking for this info on their website and other pages about this topic but I can’t find anything :/

    Thank you so much! 🙂

    I thought Physicians Formula was cruelty free?! ?

  • Rebecca Rodriguez says:

    Hi! Thank you so much for your hard work on this. Do you know if Pureology is cruelty free. They say they are 100% vegan, but I don’t see the bunny signs or anything on the bottles. Seems fishy.

  • Meesh says:

    Have you ever done any research on a company called VDL from South Korea? I was gifted an item but unable to find any info on their cruelty free stance. They do not sell in mainland China from what I can tell, but do sell in Hong Kong…? Thanks!

  • Andrea says:

    I’m not sure if this has been answered elsewhere, but I was wondering if J.Cat Beauty has been verified as cruelty free? I’d love to try some of their products, and they claim to be cruelty free on their website. But I don’t see them on either of the lists on your website. Thanks so much!

  • Ale soto says:

    I have a doubt, why does L’Oréal in its webpage says that they are fighting against animal testing but it doesn’t have a certification? They say that they are not testing in animals, so why are not considerated cruelty free?

  • Leigh says:

    Hello-I was using Sally Hansen insta dry which saved me a lot of time and lasted as long as a paid manicure. I no longer buy it. Does anyone know of a QUICK DRY NAIL POLISH that is vegan, cruelty free? Side bar: Bogavia is the most excellent shampoo and hair conditioner ever that is also cruelty free and vegan. Beauty Guarde eyebrow and eyelash growth also vegan cruelty free- works!

    what about versionderma mdprofessional and art deco?Does anyone happen to know if they’re cruelty free?

  • Megan says:

    Natura is the parent company of both Aesop and The Body Shop. Aesop is not listed as cruelty free because of Natura being its parent company, but The Body Shop is still listed as cruelty free despite having the same parent co. The Body Shop was trying to rebrand itself as cruelty free after being previously owned by L’Oreal, and I believed them! But I just noticed they’ve been owned by Natura since 2017. Isn’t this the same problem?

    • Suzana Rose says:

      Hey, thanks for letting me know! It was a glitch and Natura is cruelty-free as well as Aesop and The Body Shop. “Parent company doesn’t test on animals” was checked, but since Natura was listed as the parent company, the database thought Natura isn’t cruelty-free. I removed it and it should work now, but I had to remove the name of the parent company.

    From what i learned animal testing is only mandatory in China if they are sold in a physical store not if they are sold online that’s how companies get around selling in China.

  • Julie Gilbert says:

    Hi guys. Suzi, there’s a VA botanical company that actually makes my favorite lip balm of all, called: Sun Garden Soap Co, LLC. You can direct order from them. I emailed the owner, Carolyn, this morning. They do not sell in China, all products are cruelty free, never tested on animals, not a large scale business, but amazing products. I asked her to get in touch with you, and check out your site and was trying to see about getting her business added. They’ve been in business since 2004. Soaps, anti itch/bug bite medicine, poison ivy soap, bath salts, sugar scrubs, lotions, and lip balms. Link below. I dont know them personally. I also live in VA, and found their products in a couple different mountain and unique local stores. I swear by their lip balms though. Better than anything on or off the list I’ve ever used in life!

    Hello, I contacted Sally Hansen regarding their nail polish and I got this response back: Coty Inc does not perform, nor do we ever commission any third parties on our behalf to perform, testing of our products or ingredients on animals.

  • Jazz says:

    Isn’t fenty beauty cruelty free?!

  • Justine says:

    Hi, thanks for sharing the info. I am a bit confused that I have heard that the EU has banned making and selling cosmetics tested on animals, does that necessarily mean cosmetics I bought from stores in its member countries are cruelty-free? Thank you=)

    • Julie Gilbert says:

      Companies like almay/neutrogena/clinique “claim” to be cruelty free, because they dont test in the US. But any products sold in Mainland China REQUIRE they test on animals. So these companies pay someone else to perform the test of these products on their behalf. But yes, they sell in Mainland China, knowing these tests are done and required, so no, they are not cruelty free companies after all. True cruelty free companies will not sell in China because of this. Hope this helps.

  • Leah says:

    May I start by saying that I LOVE your page! Although I have always been an animal lover, I made the decision last year to really push to become cruelty free in everything starting with skincare and makeup and slowly working my way towards household products and your website has helped me tremendously! Ive been pretty successful (loving Method dish soaps and laundry detergent) except with my contact lens stuff. Any suggestions for cruelty free contacts lenses and solutions?
    Secondly, do you know anything about Mirenesse? They are a mid to high price range makeup and skin care company out of Australia. They say all over their website they are cruelty. I hope this is true as they have the most amazing foundation that I have found for 40 year old skin (no creasing and long lasting). Any ideas?

  • Aly says:

    I just checked the Bliss website, and they are using the PETA Beauty without Bunnies logo. Confirmed they’re on PETA’s website, as well…but don’t see them on the list above. Does anyone know otherwise?

    Is this site still active? I haven’t seen a response from the site owner to any questions below in over a month.

  • Teresa says:

  • Eppie says:

    Hi Suzi! Thanks very much for all the research done! The lists are very useful to look for cruelty-free products.
    BTW, what do you think about the products shipped to China? Some of the cruelty-free brands are sold on websites like iherb.com, and these websites does ship to China, any ideas if the Chinese government also requires those brands to conduct animal testing?

  • Theresa Daughtrey says:

    Hi, I am a bit confused, if a company makes a product and it is made cruelty free , from start to finish and then starts selling in a country that require animal testing please explain to me how this works. You mean just to sell a product that has sold very well without testing on animals , all of a sudden your company has to buy a bunch of bunnies and start pouring it in their eyes? Does money mean so much that a company would go against what they stand for or does the testing occur once the product is purchased in another country? Forgive me I lived in a world that I honestly thought was much kinder than it obviously is. I miss my rose colored glasses.

    I would am new to this site and am confused. On your landing page ( first thing I see) is a post from 2016 listing an eyeshadow palette from Kat von D. Further down the discussion board is a post that says this brand is not cruelty free. I have seen this confusion with a few brands on your downloadable list.

    Where is the most recent info? I get that it is tough to keep up, so would just like to know where to look for the most accurate info. Thanks.

    First off, thank you for your site! My question is, do you have any cruelty free recommendations for hand cleanser and hand moisturizer that would be ok for eczema? My dermatologist gave me a list of products (Cetaphil, Neutrogena, Eucerine, Dove, Gold Bond, etc.) and none of the products are cruelty free!! I really am trying to be cruelty free without irritating my skin. Thank you ?

    • PanyaV says:

      I have eczema and super-sensitive skin — I use the fragrance-free hand wash from Seventh Generation, and the unscented “baby” version of Dr Bronner’s soap [though this can be drying on its own; make sure you moisturise right after]. Right now I’m using up my stash of unscented baby lotion from Shea Moisture, but that’s been discontinued. Lately I’ve just been using cocoa butter to moisturise my hands during the day and saving my dwindling lotion supply for nighttime.

  • Helena says:

    can someone help me out here and explain why Simple is not cruelty free? they say they’re on their website + they’re PETA certified, I checked if they sell in China which, according to their website, they do not. then I thought it was because of their parent company Unilever, but Dermalogica is listed as CF so it can’t be that either. so where do they mess up???

  • Becky says:

    I thought Dove was cruelty free now and First Aid Beauty is not cruelty free anymore.

  • Gina Tomaselli says:

    Rodan & Fields is cruelty-free, but not certified. Still, it seems like there are companies on here that aren’t certified. They do not sell in China, based in SF, and if you email them they will confirm they do not animal test.

  • Gina Tomaselli says:

    Tom’s is NOT cruelty-free. It is owned by Colgate. So the actual product may not be tested but I wouldn’t count it as cruelty-free.

  • Jas says:

    I was wondering about Yardley’s. I’ve read an article on ethicalelephant, saying that while they’re not certified, they are cruelty free. While in Logical Harmony, it’s on the not cruelty free list, but also in the pending list…

    So it’s a bit confusing.

  • MSJVR says:

    Hi, I was wondering if Collection Cosmetics in the UK is cruelty free? I have been trying to find anywhere that confirms if they are or not as I am in the process of decluttering products that are not cruelty free and I have a lot of Collection cosmetic items.

    • Bunny says:

      So far in my search, Collection is CF. However the UK CF list I’ve see it on is still listing Burts Bees.

  • Kat says:

    Hey! Just recently made the decision to be mindful of my beauty buys. I am surprised that Burt’s Bees is not on the cruelty-free list. Was it missed or Is there something I should know?? I love that brand and was under the assumption they were, for the most part, natural and cruelty free.

  • Richard says:

    Just wondering if anyone else in the UK is getting frustrated with the ability to find basic price own brand cruelty free cosmetics and toiletries in the supermarkets?
    My shopping used to be very straightfoward at the Co-op- everything I needed was in there but they appear to now have discontinued own brand toothpaste, deodorant and various other of my preferred versions of shampoo and other stuff (I liked the two in one).
    Recently Sainsburys which was my alternative on roll on deodorant appears to have stopped selling it’s own brand and there doesn’t appear to be a single leaping bunny neutral (ie for men) certified roll on deodorant in any supermarket. The closest I can get is a slightly premium one at M&S, although even here these are mostly highly scented and aimed at women.
    It’s very frustrating that while many supermarkets actually tend to be cruelty free, they tend be stocking the big brands which aren’t.

  • Shamara Phillips says:

    I was just one Simple’s skincare website 2/14/2019 and it said they were cruelty free. This list says it’s not. I trust this list more than the company. I was wondering what is it they left out in their cruelty free description that I missed.

  • Andrea says:

    So, Drybar just released a boar bristle brush. Does that make them still cruelty free certified?

Any ideas?

  • Ahmose says:

    My It Cosmetics blush & Elf lip gloss say made in China. But China requires animal testing, so are they really cruelty free?

    • Bunny says:

      As I understand it – the law about testing in China is for products imported there, not made there. Does not apply to Hong Kong.

  • Kay says:

    What about Arbonne?

  • Margo says:

    I can’t seem to get the filters to work… Is it just me? I chose Skincare, Mid Range, and ships to US and got nothing. I thought maybe there just weren’t any that fit those criteria (although it’s hard to believe that), but I played around more and can’t get any results when I select any filter… Am I doing something wrong?

  • Michelle says:

    Not that long ago I emailed Unilever because I couldn’t figure out if one of their brands, Andrelon, was crueltyfree or not. They emailed me back and said they didn’t test on animals (mostly due to it being illegal in most of Europe). Yet on your website Unilever is still presented as a company that tests on animals. Could you explain why?

    Also, shouldn’t brands like WinkyLux and Fenty Beauty be on this list?

  • Kat says:

    Would it be possible to get a “Category” column like you have with your list of companies who aren’t cruelty free? Also, for some reason when I try to filter, it hides all items in the list. 🙁

    Olá Susy,

    Parabéns pelo blog. Gostaria de saber se a ISDIN é livre de testes com animais. Vc sabe dizer? Sou muito branca e já possuo a pele muito marcada do excesso de sol ao longo dos anos. Tenho um pele muito sensível, com rosácea e estou justamente no momento procurando um produto mais adequado para minha que respeite o meio ambiente (por isso deve ser um protetor físico) e os animais. A ISDIN me pareceu ser a melhor até agora. Inclusive alguns de sue produtos aparecem no site https://www.belezanaweb.com.br/cruelty-free?marca=isdin como livres de crueldade com animais.
    Desde já, agradeço sua ajuda.

  • Nicolle says:

    Hello Suzanne!
    I also was wondering will you have your logo branded on some make up products to confirm it is TRUE animal cruelty free as you do onsite investigation on these companies unlike PETA, Leaping Bunny, and Choose Cruelty-Free? It would be awesome and helpful if your logo is also on these products too! You are a TRUE animal cruelty free investigator. 😀 Just saying. 😀

  • Nicolle says:

    Hello Suzanne!
    Thank you so much for this list! I can now shop for make up with ease. I normally go on PETA website, but since I’ve been hearing news about PETA “loose” investigation on companies claiming they are animal cruelty free, but only when required by law (loopholes). Since then, I don’t know what is true and what’s not. I was wondering if you can please verify and confirm that SMASHBOX and Bare Minerals products are 100% animal cruelty free? I see it’s on your list, but I want to hear it from you directly. I used to shop for Smashbox and Bare Minerals products, but now I’m not so sure. Any feedback you can give me I would be eternally grateful. Thank you!

  • Stacey says:

    Not sure if you’re including any direct selling companies on your list, but Arbonne products are certified cruelty free (PETA) and vegan!

    Please add Maria Mila to the list! They’re an amazing company that is all vegan and c.f. and is made to salon standard.

    Hi there- I’m wondering why Dirty Works isn’t on the list; they claim to be 100% cruelty-free, and have some vegan products.

    Also, they state an EU law that prohibits the sale of animal-tested products in Europe, but there are plenty of luxe brands that do test on animals and still sell their products in Paris, Rome, etc. Is there a loophole in EU law that you’re aware of that permits the sale of those brands?

    “All of our palm oil is responsibly sourced (RSPO) from various countries! Unfortunately, we are unable to provide more specific information, however we hope that this confirmation is helpful! ”

    I don’t find this very helpful and was wondering if someone can follow up on their “various countries” comment. I am really disappointed in most cosmetic companies that say one thing but do another. I have no idea where they source their palm oil and if any deforestation is happening. I don’t want my dollars supporting such a practice at all.

    The Face Shop

    • Thea says:

      I’m seconding this! I love Korean products as well and would definitely rather support the companies that are cruelty-free 🙂

  • Patricia says:

  • Jazmin Vergara says:

    Hello! Thank you for creating this oh so helpful blogsite, I use it as my bible to traverse through this animal cruelty filled world.

    Have you heard of Dove’s recent supposed cruelty free policy? That now that they’re PETA certified, they’ll be changing the packaging to have the cruelty free label.


    How accurate or true are these statements? Are they truly going cruelty free, or is it dressed up words that skirt around lies?

  • Heather Dunn says:

    Is it possible to add Arbonne to the cruelty free list?

  • Emily says:

    Can you please verify whether Mario Badescu is cruelty free? It says so on the packaging and I read on mybeautybunny.com that they do not test on animals. Would love to hear what you find. Thanks.

  • Hi Suzy, if I’m not mistaken, you are forgetting Dr. Organic. They claim to be 100% cruelty-free and not sell in China.

  • Jen Cullen says:

    What about colorbar? They always advertise to be cruelty free

  • Christine says:

    The search doesn’t seem to work for me, I’m on the mobile version of Google Chrome. Also I saw that Drunk Elephant isn’t on this list? Are they still cruelty-free?

  • Sandra Arango says:

    I was going through your list and to my surprise, I saw an ad from a shaving cream that is not cruelty free. How is that possible? It really made me mad.

  • Tracie Steen says:

    Thank you for sharing this list!!

    I have an amazing company to add to it. It definitely belongs on this list and is worthy of praise.

    The company currently offers skincare & makeup that is proudly made in the U.S.A. Products are cruelty-free (Leaping Bunny Certified), vegan or vegetarian, toxin-free, gluten-free, consciously packaged, and made with a combination of safe, certified Organic & EcoCert ingredients.

    You can reach me at crossroads.clean.lt@gmail.com for more information about this transparent company that encourages education first.

  • Joana says:

    Hi, not a while ago I saw a blog post ( of a cruelty-free site) that said that now Makeup Revolution is cruelty-free and that does not sell in Mainland China. Do you have some news about this brand? Thank you!!

  • Nat says:

    I found this source: http://www.hsi.org/news/press_releases/2016/06/china-hsi-mou-alternatives-062716.html
    saying L’Oréal and Estée Lauder are participating for alternative testing in China. I don’t know if it’s trust-worthy

  • Norah says:

    Thank you for your work informing us! Do you know if Marc Anthony is cruelty free?

  • Rose says:

    Is Kate Somerville okay to go or is it owned by a parent company that tests?

    Skin&Co Roma is cruelty free according to the Peta website. Which I’m glad because it’s one of my favorite skincare brands other than Tatcha.

  • Bunny says:

    Hey, what about the bran W7, in their description they say they dont test on animals and withdraw from countries that require animal testing, however they do have their online store in china.

  • summer says:

    Is Kylie Cosmetics really cruelty free when the brushes are made of real hair and not synthetic?

  • Angela Nelson says:

    You have listed Aveda, Too Faced, and smashbox – all three companies are owned by Estee Lauder. Urban Decay is is also listed and they are owned by L’Oreal. To say these brands are all “cruelty-free” is somewhat misleading, because their parent companies condone and conduct animal testing. Whether the company themselves tests or not, by purchasing these products you are still lining the pockets of people who get rich off the blood of animals.

  • Rachel Sinwald says:

    What about Sei Bella? I keep finding that they say cruel free, but they are not on any of the lists.

  • Brie says:

    I noticed that Palmer’s isn’t on your list. They claim to be cruelty free (plus they’re a member of World Cocoa Foundation, Global Shea Alliance, and Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) but I was wondering if there’s a specific reason why they’re not on the list? Thank you sooo much for all the work that you do!

  • Eileen Carroll says:

    Do you know if Luseta is cruelty free?

  • Fjennings says:

    Can I ask why?

  • Fjennings says:

    I notice you have hit faith in nature on your cruelty free – vegan free list.

  • Sunny Maria says:

    Thank you for this list, your blog is my holy grail when it comes to cruelty-free products and I recommend it to everyone ! Does Rituals count ? Here is the statement on their website –> https://www.rituals.com/en-us/faqs.html?catid=faq-productrelated&qid=faq-prq-testedanimals

  • Cher Brannon says:

    Thanks for this info… I really appreciate your sharing with us. #noanimaltestingorabuse

  • Amélie says:

    Hey! I don’t see the brand Amie on here. I believe it’s both cruelty free and vegan. I really like their morning gentle cleanser! ?? Also, I read somewhere else that Le Couvent Des Minimes is selling in China, so that would mean they do have to test?!

  • Alix says:

    09/07/2018 – NYX is not a cruelty-free brand. Just went to a store of theirs and representative confirmed not all their products are cruelty-free. Some are actually made in China, and we all know what that means…

  • I’m shock to read that you have not listed LimeLife by Alcone to this list – all of their skin care is Leaping Bunny certified and alot of the makekup is also as well.

  • Marta says:

    Hey, I don’t know if this question has been asked before- what about Fenty Beauty? According to their website they are a cruelty free brand?

  • Janai says:

    It would be nice to know what these symbols mean….

  • Cleo says:


    Love this site – thank you for everything you do!

    A newish British brand, Bleach, is cruelty-free and also vegan, I think. They do hair products and, more recently, make up. Could they be added? Great to have cruelty free hair dye!

  • Elizabeth says:

    Is Vince Camuto fragrance cruelty free?

    why rms beauty is not on the list

  • Freya says:

    Is Revolution (previous Makeup Revolution) cruelty free? I’ve seen conflicting opinions but no mention of it on your site or other larger cruelty free sites

  • CarolCats says:

    Suzi, I love cats as well. During the summer months, I like wearing an ocean/sea fragrance and using the matching body lotion, soap, etc. I purchased Laline Ocean while visiting San Francisco last year; I was told that this brand is CF by the sales representative. Do any other CF brands feature such an ocean scent? I avoid brands that are owned by parent companies that animal test. Thank you so much for your ongoing research. I have purchased some wonderful CF products because of your knowledgable Website.

  • Cara says:

    I’m curious about the brand Plur. Kristen Leanne is partnered with them and all of her makeup tutorials are cruelty free. From what she has reported, they should be able to make it on the list. Thanks for all your hard work! I have this list open every time I shop!

  • Jo p says:

    Method is now owned by sc Johnson so could be argued that it is now not cruelty free. I know a local eco friendly/vegan shop has stopped stocking it because of this

  • Ellie says:

    Bumble and bumble have just got leaping bunny status, will you look into this ☺️

  • Isabelle says:

    Is anyone else experiencing issues with the ‘search’ button above? I just tried filtering by vegan, then by organic, then palm-oil-free, then by cruelty-free parent co. and though the list seemed to refresh each time, no results show for any of these.

    ALSO, Jeffrey Star Cosmetics and Fenty Beauty are great brands 🙂

  • Shannon says:

    Is The Body Shop really owned by Lorel ? I shop there offen and have spoken to a cashier there who told me they don’t deal with any parent companies that test on animals.

  • Hazel Tong says:

    I think The Body Shop should be removed from the list as they do sell in China.

  • Tatum says:

    Isn’t Jeffree Star cosmetics 100% cruelty free?

  • Roopam says:

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

  • Eleni says:

    This is an AMAZING list! I love how you also specified which companies are owned by companies who do animal testing. Just to let you know, you came up number one and two on google. https://www.google.com/search?q=cruelty+free+make+up+brands&oq=cruelty+free+make+up+brands&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l5.10329j1j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 I bookmarked your site. Thanks for all the hard work.

  • Emilee says:

    The Body Shop is no longer a L’Oreal brand. They were bought by Natura last year. Natura is a cruelty free Brazilian brand.

  • Ama says:

    Have you heard of Poofy Organics? It is a small company based in New Jersey. They are on PETA’s list of cruelty-free companies. Once you have done your research, you may want to include them on the list.

  • Julianamsinger says:

    Hi! Thank you for your work as putting his list up-to-date as much as possible thank you very very much!
    I found this new brand, French brand, 100% vegan, done with Hemp, and is sooo good for the skin ! Ho Karan . If you want to take a look 😉 https://www.hokaran.com/en/


  • Lynnette Thomson says:

    I use Sukin products and I noticed they did not have the 100% vegan logo on your list. I know their products are vegan and I clicked on the link to their website where it states this as well. Hope to see this added to support this great brand of skincare

  • Kay says:

    The bodyshop is no longer owned by loreal

  • Julia says:

    Thanks for this awesome list! I have one concern though: what about the products listed as cruelty free but not vegan? Isn’t that contradictory? I assume that it means there are still animal products inside, which means they support animal exploitation and slaughter.
    I would love more insight on this please.
    All the best,

  • Christina says:

    Liz Earle is not owned by Avon anymore. It’s owned by Walgreens Boots alliance. They don’t test in animals.

  • hatice says:

    Ddear suzi, i sent an email/post earlier but couldnt hear back from you that is why i wanted to ask again. Sorry if i missed your response. I was wondering missha’s cruelty free standing and emailed them. Received their response on 13/12/2017 (i can forward their email). They stated the below. So i understand they are cruelty free? Right? Or am i missing something?

    Dear Valued Customer,

    Thank you for your inquiry. Missha is strongly against animal cruelty, therefore we do not test on animals. All possible ingredients are derived from plants, however some products do have animal derived ingredients, such as snail slime, pearl, etc. However, these do not harvest harm to the animals. Missha does sell in China, however, due to their law, our main manufacture do not distribute to them directly, therefore they manage China’s own manufacturer carrying different/possible products that do not require animal testing. Thank you.

    Missha US

  • Rhiannon says:

    Hi I have two brands that I think should be added to this list; Jeffree Star – vegan and cruelty free with all products, and Essano – cruelty free and some products are vegan. I’ve noticed a lot of people comment about Jeffree Star and it seems you don’t take notice to it, I know he is a complicated person but Kat is the same as she is on the list.

  • Nina says:

    I’m uncertain about “the body shop” and “too faced”, if they are owned by L’oreal and Esteé Lauder. Are they really cruelty free?

  • C L says:

    I noticed that Urban Decay cleansers and setting sprays now say “Urban Decay by Skindinavia”. But I don’t see Skindinavia on the list of CF. Their website doesn’t claim to be CF, and the Urban Decay boxes (cleansers and setting sprays) had no markings to indicate they were CF. Is Urban Decay a no-go now?

  • Ana says:

  • Honey Beauty says:

    1) Czech company called “Manufaktura” – they were avarded HCS in 2009). Most of their products are also vegan friendly – https://www.manufaktura.cz/en/we-do-not-test-on-animals/t-82/
