Ultimate A-Z Cruelty-Free Beauty Brand Guide

Shopping for cruelty-free products is a growing trend among conscious consumers. But it’s not always easy to know if a brand tests on animals or not.

This in-depth list of cruelty-free brands is here to guide you on your journey to discover vegan and cruelty-free skincare, beauty and cosmetics from brands you can trust.

What Does Cruelty-Free Mean?

To put simply, cruelty-free is defined in the cosmetic and beauty industries as a product being 100% free from animal testing. Cruelty-free does not always mean vegan. Whereas vegan beauty products are defined as not containing animal ingredients, therefore, your makeup and skincare products can be cruelty-free while still containing animal products.

Unfortunately, many brands claim to be cruelty-free, but sell their products in countries like mainland China where animal testing is required by law. In this list, we outline every brand who sells in China, so you can make a conscious decision when purchasing from makeup and skincare brands.

To ensure your beauty routine is totally free from cruelty, it’s always best to purchase vegan and cruelty-free certified products.

How To Use This Cruelty-Free Brand Guide?

This cruelty-free brand guide is a comprehensive list of makeup, skincare and beauty brands and their stance on producing cruelty-free products. You’ll also find information on whether the brand uses 100% vegan ingredients or not.

Brands are listed in alphabetical order to make searching them easier. Brands highlighted in green are both 100% vegan and cruelty-free; brands in yellow are cruelty-free, but not 100% vegan; and brands in red not cruelty-free nor vegan.

Where possible, we aim to highlight whether a brand is Leaping Bunny or Beauty Without Bunnies certified.
