Cruelty Free Beauty Brands A-Z

I have decided to no longer maintain this list as there are other bloggers / companies that do this way more thoroughly than I have the time or knowledge for.

So I'd recommend the following blogs if you're looking for up to date and accurate cruelty free and vegan lists:

Blogs:
Logical Harmony
Cruelty Free Kitty
Ethical Elephant

Companies
Leaping Bunny
Vegan Society


(These are the resources that I personally go to when I'm trying to find out if a company is cruelty free. I don't trust any other sources as much as the above and don't really trust any other certifications except Leaping Bunny).

  3. Thanks for providing an up to date list of cruelty free make up available to buy in the UK!
    Trying to purchase cosmetics that is cruelty is hard...most say ' don't test on animals' but some contain carmine.....if you out shopping...cannot always check the ingredients!
    You may want to look At ASDA Nspa skin range as this is what I use. Not sure about the George at ASDA make up.Also the B range at superdrug is suitable for Vegans.

    1. According to the info I've received from them, they are. But never hurts to contact them if you have doubts. If I ever hear otherwise I would check and would remove them from the list if I wasn't happy.

  10. This is fantastic, thank you. I have just heard about Mane 'n' Tail hair products too, US owned (Straight Arrow), available in the UK. Their website says they don't test on animals, but I haven't looked into it any further.

  11. This is great, thank you. I have just been introduced to the U.S. based Mane 'n' Tail hair products, owned by Straight Arrow. Their website says they don't test on animals but I haven't looked into it any further.

  12. Many thanks for such a comprehensive list, my son has recently turned vegan and I'm currently looking at brands for birthday/Xmas gifts! I usually try to buy cruelty free so I am aware of many of the brands listed, some are a pleasant surprise as I had hitherto avoided them!

  13. This is a great list, thank you! With the PC labled ones, is it possible to use another label along side, such as NAI (o animal ingredients) if their products are considered vegan when not considering the parent/sister companies?
    Maybe SAI (some animal ingredients) or SNV (some not vegan) for ones with both vegan and vegan products?

    1. Thanks for your feedback. I don't think it makes a huge difference, as I'm only talking about that brand not other brands related to them. I think the PC label makes that clear.

      Honestly I think it would make it too confusing/busy. Also, you'll notice that none of the brands with a parent company that tests are fully vegan anyway, just have vegan options. :)

    1. I recently took them off the list as they started selling in China. So no as far as I know, they are not anymore. :(

      Delete
    2. You can reinstate them now as they pulled back out of China after being subjected to post-market testing! They were NOT pleased with that and so withdrew. :)

    3. Yes, thanks for the reminder. I have added them back on. :)

  19. Thanks for your quick reply. This makes me sad and cross with them. Thanks for the list x

  20. I've found napa that can be found online and at Asda really good. They state on their product they don't test on animals and it you look at their products online they clearly state which products are vegan friendly in the item descriptions

  21. I thought Stila was sold in China? Any idea??

    1. When I emailed them I got a curt response stating none of their products were suitable for vegans.

  23. I buy often from Mirenesse in Australia. Their mascara is sold as vegan but there's a few lip things with beeswax. I'd love to know what is definitely vegan or not!

  24. Just to let you know on the lavera website at the bottom of the animal testing policy they state they will test if required by the countries law so I think they sell in china therefore testing on animals.

    1. Ugh, thanks for letting me know, I'll look into it as I think they have vegan society certification πŸ™

    2. Just been on their site and cannot see this info. They confirm they don't test and also that they do not sell in China, so I'm happy to leave them on the list for now :)

  26. hi , noticed essence is on the makeup list for cruelty free and vegan friendly , silly question what about the nail gel polishes are they cruelty free x

  27. I'm a bit confused. On one section it says Superdrug and Soap and Glory are VF but on another it says PC.

    Are they both owned by companies who test? I really hope not as Superdrug has been a bit of a saviour for me in my search for CF.

    Also, I read somewhere that Liz Earle now aren't CF, is this correct?

    1. Yes both are owned by parent companies that test but are themselves cruelty free. Superdrug own brand products have leaping bunny certification. It’s all down to how you feel about parent companies.

      Liz Earle is the same, cruelty free but owned by a non cruelty free parent company.
