BE NICE TO BUNNIES!

We all want to buy cruelty-free beauty products, but many times the problem is that we don’t have time to do research on brands before buying. We hope this cruelty free list will help you find brands and products that have not been tested on animals.

One issue with finding truly cruelty-free beauty brands is that brands can call themselves “cruelty-free” if they do not test their finished products on animals, but they can still buy ingredients from suppliers who are conducting animal tests. (There are no regulations in the US for using the term “cruelty-free” like there are with “USDA Organic” labels. So, buyer beware.) Leaping Bunny is the gold standard for cruelty free beauty products, but not all cruelty free products have registered with Leaping Bunny.

At My Beauty Bunny™, our personal feelings are that an ingredient should not be banned from use by animal activists just because it was tested on animals in the past. However, if a supplier is currently conducting animal testing, we hope beauty brands will boycott the supplier.

We have done our best to include only companies that are completely cruelty-free, but it is impossible to know if brands are really purchasing ingredients from cruelty-free suppliers, or if the suppliers are being up-front with the brands. As with everything else, it is always wise to do your own research.

This is not an exhaustive list of cruelty-free beauty and household goods brands – you can check PETA and Leaping Bunny for the latest. If you’d like to be added to the list, and your products and ingredients are not tested on animals, drop us a line at jen at mybeautybunny.com.

We highly recommend downloading the Leaping Bunny iPhone or Android app or the PETA Caring Consumer iPhone app. You can also download or order a free pocket-sized Compassionate Shopping Guide from Leaping Bunny.

What about cruelty free brands owned by companies who DO test?

We believe that supporting animal-friendly companies goes a long way toward the eventual elimination of animal testing. If the parent companies see the successes of their brands who do not test, it’s a win. It’s also a win for the animal-friendly companies to get larger distribution in mass channels by being involved with huge companies. That’s our personal opinion here at My Beauty Bunny™ and we invite you to make up your own mind on the matter!

Please note companies change their policies all the time – if you have information about a brand that is no longer cruelty free, please contact Jen.

    Thank you so much for this post! Since things change all the time I find myself having to Google when I’m at the drugstore or Sephora. This will be much easier! I bookmarked this site on my phone so I can quickly refer back :-) Revlon and Almay used to be two of my drugstore go to brands. I was so sad when I found out they were no longer considered cruelty free. But I won’t lie, it’s a little fun having to try to find replacements!

    I currently use “Juice Beauty” by Alicia Silverstone and am amazed it may not be cruelty-free. Will you get back to the origin of manufacturing too? I will not longer purchase it if it is not cruelty-free and even made in China.

    Also, curious if you have know about Revision Skincare? They have a SPF45 Matte foundation that I was wondering if it was cruelty-free.

    Great site – keep it up!

    Can you tell me if Benefit is cruelty free? I don’t see their name on either list. This is the statement on their site:

    “Benefit does not test our cosmetic products on animals. When selecting the ingredients to be used in our cosmetic products, Benefit requires raw material suppliers to provide safety information based on scientifically accepted alternative testing methods that meet international safety standards and regulations. Benefit products must meet both consumers’ needs and consumer safety, while respecting animal life. Benefit continues to strongly support & favor alternative testing and is committed to following all animal testing laws and regulations in order to ensure our products’ safety for the end consumer.”

    I want to make sure there are no loop holes there.

I found their products at Sephora and the people that work there have not mentioned that they are.

    Anastasia is cruelty free to my knowledge. Leaping Bunny does not list every cruelty free brand.

    Benefit is NOT cruelty free. This statement: “committed to following all animal testing laws and regulations in order to ensure our products’ safety for the end consumer” is the loophole that allows them to sell in China or other countries that do 3rd party testing.

    @jenn, no offense to China or anyone from China, but youre talking about a country that isn’t exactly known for its animal welfare practices. when a company’s primary goal is generating revenue, sorry to say it but they’ll find ways to tap the next market (i.e. china, massive population).

    I contacted O.P.I and they are cruelty free, here is my response:

    Hi Ashley

    We don’t do animal testing, never have.
    We have never paid anyone else to do it, either.
    Our testing is done on paid, medically supervised HUMAN volunteers in a certified lab.

    Even now that we’re selling in China, we STILL don’t animal test .
    Because, happily — Nail polish is exempt from the Chinese animal test regulations.

    Hope this helps.

    Paul

    :D

  • Lidia

    They are not cruelty free but they word things in a manner that makes them sound like they are. In order for a company to be cruelty free they cannot sell their products in China, as animal testing is required there by law. Benefit sells in China to increase profit and in so allows animal testing to be done by third parties in China. See response below by their CSR:

    “Hi Gorgeous,
    Benefit
    loves animals and doesn’t test products on them. In addition, our
    parent company LVMH hasn’t carried out animal testing since 1989, well
    before the official European Union ban in 2004.

    We’re
    committed to total safety and impeccable quality for our customers. Our
    teams have developed extensive know-how in ‘alternative’ testing that
    does not involve animals (cell culture, reconstructed epidermis, and so
    on.)

    LVMH has led the charge on animal-free testing, but
    unfortunately, authorities in countries like China continue to require
    it. When registering products in China, we provide product samples and
    many documents attesting to the safety of the product but we do not test
    our products on animals. We’re hopeful that positive changes in Europe
    will at some point impact all markets.

    Have a beautiful day,Janna
    Benefit Cosmetics Customer Care”

    Just want to share with you all, that you need to be more specific when you emailed them in regards to animal testing. Many consumer believe that their products are not tested on animals, however, the thing that most consumer didn’t ask is whether the ingredients and their suppliers do animal testing. Which I believe is worst that the end product itself.
    If you want to know more about what question to ask, visit peta’s website! they have a guidelines on that and so much more information about being cruelty-free. Little research go a long way.

    Hi Jen, Thank you so much for this blog. I’m also a member of NAVS and am very passionate about my animal friends. I noticed you have Wet & Wild on the safe list. I bought their foundation, which has the bunny logo and states it is made in the USA but packed in China. However, I
    also bought eye shadow without reading the back and when I got home I noticed it says Made in China and has no Bunny logo. Can I assume this IS tested then? By the way, I have been a long time user of Revlon so I have been scrambling to find comparable makeup to replace the Revlon – not an easy task! Thank you for all your research! Jenise

  • http://www.mybeautybunny.com Jen Mathews

    Hi Jenise – thanks for your kind words! Wet N Wild is made in China but doesn’t sell in China (as far as the CF community is made aware anyway). So that means they are still CF. Revlon has actually pulled OUT of China (for $$ reasons of course), so they may be CF again. Waiting to hear more on that subject. For now, I’m avoiding Revlon though.

    I believe Elizabeth Arden does not animal test, though they are owned by Estee Lauder and probably sell in China.
    Also — for those selling in China — with China changing their laws this summer so that it is OPTIONAL TO TEST [like in the USA], will any of these companies be changing BACK to Cruelty-Free? That may be something to ask some of the CEOs/etc. of the companies listed on here: I am particularly curious about MAC, Aveda, Clinique, OPI, Sephora, Avon, and Mary Kay Cosmetics.

    To clarify, Elizabeth Arden is NOT cruelty free. And China’s new law ONLY applies to domestic Chinese brands (AKA brands FROM China). So, if a brand from the US, UK, etc wants to sell in China, they still have to do 3rd party gov’t mandated animal testing.

Also containing the alternatives to them. They can be so sneaky! As a person and activist I don’t feel 100% about not knowing and understand all of it.

    Search the internet far and wide. Many little businesses you wouldn’t expect sell alot of CF items. I find more and more everyday. Also if u look up the ingredients and instructions you can make your own vegan cruelty free items from cosmetics to body care to cleaning products to everyday household use items like glue, deodorant, nail treatments, hair care, moisturizer, shaving cream ect..

    Hi Jen….question for you, I see you have a post from last year about Living Proof hair products, but they’re not listed on the Leaping Bunny site nor on your list above? I’m hoping you can confirm they are cruelty free? And if not, can you (or anyone?) suggest a good cruelty-free voluming shampoo or conditioner that isn’t sticky? thanks !

  • http://www.mybeautybunny.com Jen Mathews

    I’m not 100% sure if they are still cruelty free to be honest. They were cruelty free, but they may not be now. I’ll look into it further. In the meantime, how about Paul Mitchell volumizing products?

  • Marjeta

    Hello Jen, I saw your post from 2012 about MUD (Make-up Designory) and that they have a cruelty free line. So, not of all their cosmetics is cruelty free (they are not listed
    on your list)? Thank you for your answer.

  • http://www.mybeautybunny.com Jen Mathews

    Yes they are cruelty free. I’ll update the list.

    This is the 2nd time today I’ve read that allantoin is not cruelty-free. Up until today I thought (assumed) allantoin would be extracted from Comfrey (herb). Perhaps in Jason’s case this is true (I hope so as I buy their shampoo).

  • Red

    So surprised that you didn’t include Seventh Generation and Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day on your household products list.

  • Red

    “How many bunnies does Revlon blind for beauty’s sake?” That was the seminal full-page newspaper ad that Henry Spira ran in 1983 to get Revlon to stop testing on animals. By the end of the decade they were CF. Look up the campaign, it was a landmark in the CF movement.

  • Red

    I think Dr. Hauschka is CF. I don’t know that Clarins ever was. They always said their finished products were not tested on animals, but their ingredients…who knows?

  • Red

    They kill them. Most if not all animals subject to these tests wind up dead because they’re thought of as disposable equipment. :,,(

  • Red

    I always thought it usually came from eggs.

    First of all- thank you so much for doing this list! May I add some information please: Murad is listed on NAVS as a Tester. Also: you still have John Frieda and Jergens in your drugstore finds (in your cruelty free list you deleted both companies already). May I also add that Palmer´s might be cruelty free in the sense of animal testing- but they use Palm oil which produce kills Orangutans. So indirectly I feel like they are animal cruel too. Hard Candy is no longer Leaping Bunny certified. Thanks again for all your hard work! I appreciate it very much! XOXO, Sissi

    I think people should know that Sally Hansen and Redken are not on the cruelty-free list. :(

  • Tina L Nelson

    I see Nexxus is on the cruely free list yet the products no longer say ‘not’ or ‘never’ tested on
    animals. Why is this?

  • Tina L Nelson

    Almay? Physicians Formula? Jane? Nyc? If not on the above list, does that cruelty free?

  • Tina L Nelson

    Sorry, I meant to say…..if a brand is not on the above list, does thar mean that they are not cruelty free?

  • Lisa Clement

    Great list! This is nice to see it all together! Sad when you see they turn to China and have to do testing as a result! Greed is often bigger than their heart!

  • Jo Reynolds

    Hi Jen,
    I have been looking for a good make-up brand that is cruelty free. I have been going crazy buying Smashbox make-up, telling my sister to buy Smashbox as it is listed on the Peta list as cruelty free. Now I see that it is sold in China. It is missleading to have it on the Peta list if it is not 100% cruelty free. I know some of their products are cruelty free as they have the leaping bunny on. Obviously not all of them are cruelty free as they sell in China. Can you sudgest a good make-up brand that is cruelty free? I live in South Africa and don’t recognise many of the brands on your list. Its seems like most of the big make-up brands test on animals :-(.
    Thanks,
    Jo.

  • Jo Reynolds

    Hi Marta,
    I have been using Artistry. I recently contacted Amway about there animal testing practices. They said they do not test their products on animals. However they also said they do not screen or select their suppliers based on their animal testing practices. This put me off as I can not be sure that the product is 100% cruelty free so I will no longer be using the product. I hope this helps.
    Thanks,
    Jo.

  • Molly

    Hey Sissi-I thought I might find you here too! After your video and Kathy A’s L’Oreal history I decided to go 100% cruelty free and am on the hunt for the best products to replace my current faves.
    Thanks for starting me down this path-it feels really good to put my money where my mouth is. I was just saying to my husband last night “If anyone tried to come into someone’s home and perform these tests on their pets they would go ballistic! Yet it’s ok to perform on thousands of other defenseless animals?”
    Hypocrisy…
    Thanks again!

  • Victoria

    Anything made in China is NOT cruelty free as it’s their law to test products out on animals to insure safety before selling to the public.

  • Bella

    Almay is owned by Revlon, and it says on the Almay website that they do testing if required by law. Not sure about the other two though.

  • http://www.mybeautybunny.com Jen Mathews

    That is not true. Products can be made in China and shipped overseas (to Europe or America for example) and are not tested on animals. It’s only if they are sold in China that there might be a problem.

  • http://www.beauty4free2u.com Beauty4Free2U

    Smashbox used to be cruelty free but is back to animal testing (like you said: they sell in China.) If you see a product from smashbox with the leaping bunny it must be from “an old batch”. We all do not understand why PETA still lists smashbox as cruelty free. Have you heard of pmu professional make up? It is a professional brand used by make-up artists in South Africa http://pmu.co.za/shop/
    I think Too Faced is also shipping worldwide!

    The newest PETA list of cruelty free products does not list the smashbox products as cruelty-free. They have removed all of the companies who have cheated on their pledges in order to make millions in the Chinese markets. They include: Clinique, Revlon, Avon, Lancome, Clarins, Estee Lauder – and many more. Here’s a link to their list of cruelty free products: http://features.peta.org/cruelty-free-company-search/cruelty_free_companies_search.aspx?Donottest=8&Product=0&Dotest=-1&Regchange=-1&Country=-1&Keyword=
    I am new to My Beauty Bunny, and I can’t tell you how delighted I am to have found like-minded, caring people who will go that extra mile to improve the lives of animals. Together we have made many differences in the way society sees the treatment of helpless creatures – and thanks to all of you here, we’ll continue fighting until we have eradicated every form of animal abuse.
    My other connection here is to fellow Fibromyalgia sufferers – not a club to which we would liked to have signed on to, but good to feel the companionship and strength you show each other.

    Hi Theoni,not all cruelty free companies are listed on PETA or Leaping Bunny. But a lot of the companies My Beauty Bunny has listed sell actually world wide (online) or you can find the products on ebay or Amazon. Maybe you have not heard of them before because a lot of these are not drugstore. Are you more interested in Skin Care or Make up- or both? You can buy for example Paula´s choice (Skin Care) online in Europe https://www.paulaschoice-eu.com/ May I ask from which country you are? I am German but do live in Florida. Maybe I can help you a bit in finding what you are looking for. Let me know! XOXO, Sissi

  • http://www.beauty4free2u.com Beauty4Free2U

    I can still find Smashbox as CF on PETA´s list- (even though we all know that they sell in China). Really strange why PETA did not remove them.

  • Animal Lover

    Just to let you know that I never order from Amazon as they also sell Foie Gras and can not support that.

    Seba-Med has the leaping bunny certificate but it says “seba-med, usa”. the brand is german, and i’m confused. does seba-med sell in china? i’ve just written a mail to the german company and still waiting for a reply but i wanted to ask you, too.

  • justathought

    I’m not sure if anyone else has mentioned this, but apparently china is lifting the mandatory animal testing law, which is why so many companies are starting to sell there. I work for LUSH (which is a huge animal rights advocating company) and they’re talking about opening shops there. If so many companies are making the leap to sell there, most of them probably aren’t willing to abandon those ethics.

    RMS is the cleanest line I’ve found. Ilia Beauty is also great. (neither is vegan). Andalou Naturals has a fantatasic BB balm (3 shades) and some good hair care, W311 People, Acure has some great skincare, Anastasia and Tarte have performance cf cosmetics with some paraben free options, and EYEKO has great CF mascaras, liners and shadowsticks which are paraben free.

  • http://www.beauty4free2u.com Beauty4Free2U

    I know! But they are not cruelty free for sure because they sell their products in China. I am guessing that PETA is just a bit slow? Or maybe money plays a role…who knows what is going on there but I am not buying Smashbox as long as they sell in China!

    It is actually more the opposite: Revlon just pulled out of China (because they did not sell enough in China!) but they keep their stance to do animal testing when required by law and therefore they are not cruelty free.

  • Becca

    Holly – I unfortunately am not aware of any drustore brands that compare to the revlon colorstay ( I admit I loved that one too), but if you’re willing to spend a little more $$ then Urban Decay Naked Skin liquid foundation is supposed to be good and I use the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12hr foundation and it’s amazing in terms of coverage and lasting the whole day! Both are vegan :)

  • amaranthia

  • http://www.mybeautybunny.com Jen Mathews

    Amaranthia – I’m not sure that Milani and Jordana are truly cruelty free. PETA says that they are. But the company won’t answer questions about cruelty free suppliers posed by other bloggers (Logical Harmony, Phyrra). They also haven’t started to apply for their Leaping Bunny certification. I think they honestly don’t know if all their suppliers are CF.

    I was digging a bit deeper because you list “White Rain” on you CF drugstore finds. So I googled and googled… I found out that White Rain was sold to High Ridge Brands (who also acquired Vo5, Zest and Rave.) I emailed them 2 weeks ago about their stance to animal testing and I have never gotten a response- which for me is almost equal to not being CF. I am not comfortable saying that White Rain is cruelty free. I would love if you could check this again. Thank you so much, Jen. XOXO, Sissi

See here: http://highridgebrands.com/family-of-values/ I wrote them 2 weeks ago and asked about their stance to animal testing and have never gotten a response. No answer means pretty much that they are not cruelty free to me. What do you think? XOXO, Sissi

    May be. That´s why because there is a new law about to test in China. http://www.specchemonline.com/articles/view/cosmetic-legislation-in-china#.U9e59_l5OAU.
    Also Coastal Scents cosmetics are made in china and in the brand website they said ” Cruelty Free, absolute no animal testing”.

Where the products are made is not an issue – where they are SOLD is when the gov’t intervenes and demands animal testing. And Ole Henriksen was formally cruelty free (brands decide to sell in China all the time). You were reading a very old post.

    They are definitely not cruelty free, I would be shocked if they ever were. I worked for them and all make-up brushes are made from goat, pony and animal hair according to the tags. It’s all made in China so it is very likely the make-up is tested on animals.

    Why Dr.Hauschka is not on the list of cruelty free beauty brands? I have understand that Dr. Hauschka is cruelty free. It is on the Peta’s list of cruelty free cosmetics and it has certified by “Pro Luonnonkosmetiikka ry”. Am I wrong?

    Hi ! I wanna go CF with my products but I live on an Island and most brands we got are basically the big known ones (l’oreal, estee lauder and others) that are not CF…

    The Yes Too (carrots… I like the grapefruit ones) line is great ($15ish)! And Acure makes a lovely day cream. It smells like apple cider at first which I kind of like but the scent wears off in minutes if you don’t ($15).

    Trader Joe’s is a mecca for those wanting to be cruelty free. They have two different moisturizers, one for $5.99 and one for $3.99, and both are great. Their shampoo starts at $2.99 a bottle. They also have soap, toilet paper, tissues, and household cleaning products. Anything with a Trader Joe’s label is cruelty free.

  • AngTart

    I recently contacted Mario Badescu in regards to them selling in China. They no longer do business in China and retain their cruelty free status. They are a “go to” brand for me and was almost heartbroken to know i would have to break ties with them. I am dedicated to being cruelty free and your site here is my first stop for researching brands. I thought maybe you would like the info if you would like to update your site. please see MB’s response to me below (they have also removed the China location form their site):

    Dear Angela,

    Thank you for reaching out to Mario
    Badescu Skin Care. We have received your inquiry regarding our animal testing
    policy and selling in China. We do not test our products on animals. We do not
    test our ingredients on animals, nor do we have anyone test on our behalf.
    Further, we ask all of our raw material vendors to sign a certification that
    they do not test on animals. That said, we have no control over the actions of
    raw material vendors. Below is the statement that we require all of our raw
    material vendors to sign as it relates to the raw materials we purchase.

    I confirm that to the best of my knowledge and belief that the above named raw
    material complies with the European ban on animal testing and has not been
    tested on animals for cosmetic or personal care purposes since December 31,
    2009. I also confirm it has been checked with the actual manufacturer of each
    constituent raw material used to produce the product listed above to ascertain
    that this statement is correct.

    While we currently have no products registered for sale in
    China, the requirement to test on animals has since ceased. They are now testing
    via alternate methods.

    If you have any other questions regarding the
    line, you can respond directly to this email address and I will be happy to
    assist you. Again, thank you for choosing Mario Badescu Skin
    Care.

    Best,
    Katie

    Just wanted to get feedback. I own a cruelty free hair salon. I have added one more rule for the product lines I carry and want to know if anyone else is aware of this? I do check 1. no animal testing ingredients and or final product. 2. Selling to China and the third one is the new one. 3. Does the company donate to any charities that participate in animal testing and or donate to 3rd party labs. The big one I have found the the pink ribbon one, I believe its Susan G Komen. Even Paul Mitchell gives to this scary organization. Any thoughts?

    I buy my skincare at the body shop bc they are cruelty free and they actually have really effective, more natural skincare. Most of their lip products are really nice too.

  • Pingback: Testing of cosmetics using animals | beauty gossips()

  • MrsB

    I don’t know what others on here stance is regarding your comment. But for me, animal testing for medical purposes is really a whole other area. Testing cosmetics is unnecessary and cruel, especially as cosmetics are a luxury, but finding a cure for cancer is a little more important and while I am not belittling the importance of animals in this world of ours, until there are ways of testing everything in other ways, unfortunately for medical reasons, it is a necessary evil :( Paul Mitchell is one of the few hair care companies (especially that is available in the UK) that is completely cruelty free.

  • MrsB

    If Rimmel is off the list (and many more like it) because their parent companies sell to China and China tests (as a legal requirement WTF!), how is it that every single list like this that I see still has the Body Shop on it?

    Rimmel (and others) sell their products to China who then test (Rimmel aren’t to blame. Okay if they didn’t sell to China then their hands would be clean but they do). But the Body Shop took a wonderful, ethical, moral business and sold it to a giant of cosmetics who has been notorious in the vivisection world for decades and still is (because of their involvement with China).

    To my mind Rimmel (and such like) are far more innocent and deserving of being on these lists than The Body Shop. The chinese customers money that they spend on Rimmel’s products go to Rimmel, my money, if i spend it at Body Shop goes to L’oreal who test on animals!!!

    It makes no sense. Can someone be the first to admit that Body Shop are as culpable as those invested in Chinese businesses and remove them from these cruelty free lists.

    I’m pretty sure they’ve remained on PETA’s list because they give them massive donations (and we all know how just and moral PETA are!)

  • marli

    Personally, I don’t think there is ANYTHING that justifies the deliberate infliction of pain, fear, and suffering on animals. I don’t care if a cure for cancer is found that way – the ends don’t justify the means. Cruelty is cruelty. So I applaud Aidee’s decision – I wish I could find a good cruelty free salon near me!

  • Amber

    I’ve seen Jordana in Walgreens and always want to pick up something. Do you have any recommendations?

  • Danae Jeraldo

    I don’t have tried many Jordana products. But at least from some experiences and from Internet I know that:
    -Jordana’s nailpolish:They have great colors,and it doesn’t look “poor”. But the problem is that they don’t last too much,also when you are in a pool it wears off…but maybe it’s because of all the clorox and water. So I recomend buying a first coat from another brand and then using some nail-polish from Jordana.
    Jordana’s Lipstick:It’s not bad,and so CHEAP! it has a good pigment,But I’m not sure about how long it lasts. It doesn’t have a really professional final-product but it’s okay,it’s like a middle quality…not bad,not the most wonderfull lipstick in the world.
    Jordana’s Eyepencil:It’s not too good,It’s not bad though but I don’t recommend it too much.
    Jordana’s mascara:Girls always say that they LOVE them,but when their eyelashes are curled it makes the curl fall a bit,Also when you have applied the product it looks a bit fake.
    Jordana’s makeup cleansing:I have read that it’s a good product,sometimes a little bit harsh but nothing too serious and it takes makeup off really well :).

    Hope it helps you,If there are some grammar mistakes it’s because my first language is Spanish :)

    Rimmel is owned by Coty. Rimmel is also sold in China. Therefore, Rimmel is NOT cruelty free because they knowingly allow their products to be repeatedly tested on animals by the Chinese government. The Body Shop, while owned by L’Oreal, is NOT sold in China. Therefore, The Body Shop can be considered cruelty free.

  • Elisabeth Sørensen

    Pai Skincare has the Leaping Bunny logo on their website. They’re not on the list at leapingbunny.org, though they are at gocrueltyfree.org (BUAV). I wish leapingbunny.org could list all certified brands on their site, instead of redirecting us to another group’s LB list. They only list U.S. and Canadian companies on their site, and redirect me to gocrueltyfree.org for the European list. What do you think about this?

  • Moxie

    Paula’s Choice! I had this CRAZY rash from some sort of ingredient or another. It was like a dry skin rash, but it was so bad it looked like cyctic acne. Her products completely healed my skin, and I would say within a month…maybe less. You can only get it on the internet, but they are absolutely cruelty free. Also, all of her ingredients are extremely well researched and made in accordance with what SCIENCE tells us, not what fad craze or wrong information is going around at the moment, and she explains the why of everything she puts in her products. She also discusses other cosmetic and skin care products in her “Beautypedia” section, though not everything in her Beautypedia are cruelty free, just keep that in mind.

  • Moxie

    In my mind neither of them are cruelty free. L’Oreal is one of the biggest offenders of animal testing. I would never consider a company owned by them (in which they profit greatly by owning such a company) to be cruelty free. There are distinctions on this list however between companies that are owned by a company that tests but the company itself remains CF, and those that are truly 100% cruelty free. Like I have said before, I could never go up to and look at a lab animal while being tested and say to myself “yeah, I guess my mascara is worth __% of their suffering. It is getting harder (and more expensive to remain completely cruelty free however when companies like Tarte (a standard of mine) are being bought up by companies that test. It’s absolutely frustrating.

  • Moxie

    e.l.f and Pacifica are both CF and budget friendly. But I feel your pain. For skin care like I mentioned elsewhere on here, I use only Paula’s Choice. Affordable and changed my very sensitive skin to very healthy happy skin.

  • Moxie

    Hey, does anyone know the status of Revlon now that they have pulled out of China? Also, I wonder if you could put Cult Cosmetics on the list (at least their nail polish) it is cruelty free. I don’t know if BH cosmetics is CF which they sometimes put in their black box, does anyone else know? I would think since Cult is very against animal testing they would be careful in who they partner with, but I don’t want to assume anything.

    It would be nice if leaping bunny listed cruelty free suppliers (companies that supply ingredients to known makeup brands). That way consumers would know if the products truly are cruelty free. Why arent the sources disclosed? After all suppliers,especially those that introduce new cosmetic ingredients are mostly responsible, and makeup brands that claim they are cruelty free will have a harder time making such claims or be able to turn a blind eye.

    What about Coastal Scents? This is on their website:

    We do not test products on animals and only support suppliers that do the same. All the products we carry are produced cruelty free and no animals are harmed. Even though some companies still test on animals, we believe that it is unnecessary, unethical and is scientifically unreliable. We want to be sure that our products are safe on humans, so our products are rigorously assessed and tested by human volunteers.

    Late reply. I agree that inflicting pain on animals I a terrible thing and should be avoided at all costs. But the pain of cancer.. That should be avoided too.

  • Tracy

    Hi, just wanted to let everyone know that Paula’s Choice advocates vivisection and cannot be classed as cruelty free (I agree with Aidee!). After looking at their website I realised they support various medical research organisations which do test on animals and emailed them. Their email response is below however I hope that many of you are as disgusted as I was and will not be buying their products, As Mrs B said cruelty is cruelty.

    Dear Tracy,

    Thank you for your reply. As a company, Paula’s Choice is not opposed to animal testing for medical purposes (many life-saving drugs would never have made it to market without this type of testing) but we are 100% against animal testing of cosmetics. No animal should have to suffer so we can wear lipstick, apply hairspray, or use an eye cream, but when it comes to medical breakthroughs and pharmaceuticals, we do become more moderate. It’s a tough one, no question. As much as we abhor the idea of any type of animal suffering, we cannot deny that it is, for the foreseeable future, the closest we can get to a certain level of medical discovery without resorting to testing on people (which opens a whole other ethical can of worms, so to speak).

    So, in summation, animal testing on cosmetic products during any stage of development does not make sense to us, but animal testing to prove a potentially life-saving drug or medical procedure works does make sense, although all of us here look forward to the day superior alternative methods are the norm rather than the exception.

    Let us know if you have any further.

    Which island? There are a couple of those subscription boxes that are cruelty free (Petit Vour, Vegan Cuts Beauty Box, e.l.f., Cult-if you are looking for nail polish) and depending on where you live, the shipping may not be any different or maybe just slightly more. Another thing to try are companies like Alima Pure where you can try a bunch of different samples (and they are real samples) to see what you like and what you don’t. I know Paula’s Choice does this as well. It might be a good way to try products out, then when you make a purchase from their website, you know already that you like the products and that it will be worth the extra cost. Just an idea, I went to Kauai once and they only had ONE large store there and it was Walmart (and I will not shop there). I understand how hard it is, my friend that lives there struggles with it all of the time. I was only there for a little while and was going out of my mind with frustration! Good luck!

  • Moxie

    I am confused about this also. It is very clear on their website, yet MBB and LH both have not put them on their CF lists. That is in fact the statement they have on their website, and the wording that we look for in general as assurance that their suppliers are CF.

    The problem I have with saying Costal Scents is cruelty-free, is that they carry a lot of palettes and products that are private label. This includes popular items like the 88 shimmer palette etc. If you do a quick search, you will find that those are all manufactured in CHINA. This says to me they are not. Coastal Scents has had a bit of a sketchy history, including the sale of mink lashes at one time (not sure if they still sell them, since I don’t buy from them anymore). Just something to think of. Their mineral products are likely cruelty-free, but it just depends on what you are comfortable with and how stringent you are when it comes to the cruelty-free lines.

    True! But I do believe that the use of private labels does not mean right away it´s not cruelty free. Of course it is hard to tell. Companies that use private labeling should be forced to tell who the manufacturer is…but don´t forget: just because a product is produced in China does not mean it is not cruelty free either. Only if it is SOLD in China it is not cruelty free! XOXO, Sissi

    I just wanted to let y’all know that a few days ago I contacted Mario Badescu Skin Care with the following message:

    I am interested in trying Mario Badescu Skin Care products, but I am very dedicated to using only Cruelty Free products. I am hoping you can clarify by answering the following questions; Does your company or manufacturer test on animals? Do any 3rd parties engage in animal testing on your behalf? Do you use ingredients that have been tested on animals? Do you sell products in China, or any other foreign market that requires animal testing? Thank you very much,

    Dylan

    This was on Wednesday, November 19. I still have not gotten a response. To me, this is a sign that their products or ingredients are, in fact, tested on animals, and that they do not want to admit it. I find this very unprofessional, and against my standards of cruelty free products. Therefore, I will not be purchasing any products from the company. I just wanted to notify anyone else that has been eyeballing the brand, but was unsure of their cruelty free status. I hope this helps someone!

  • Allison

    I asked By Terry about their animal testing policy and they sent:

    “The ingredients in our products and finished products are not tested on animals.

    Ourselves and our manufacturers respect the cosmetics Regulation No 1223/2009/EC since the implementation of the law on animal testing. We ensure that compliance with our ingredients and our finished product manufacturers suppliers.

    Our ingredients and products are not tested on animals by a third party and our company is not affiliated with other companies that could carry out tests on animals.”

    so it appears as though they can be added to the list. But please let me know if they are in fact not cruelty free.

  • Jen

    I love this! Having somewhere to check that is more updated when buying products. Since companies change up so often.I was going crazy trying to get valid information but this gave me a piece of mind. Prestige cosmetics aren’t up here but they are cruelty free, last time i checked on Peta. They make great pigmented eyeshadows, mineral blushes, and chubby moisturize lipsticks. Keep up the great work! I literally check in every other day when at the store lol.

  • http://www.beauty4free2u.com Beauty4Free2U

    Not all companies that are cruelty free want to “deal” with PETA. If you ask the other way around: how to get ON the PETA list? Companies get on the PETA list because they ask for it not because PETA simply puts them on the list. BTW PETA also does not list companies on the “do test” list that are required by law to test (China). The list from PETA is helpful but not complete. You will also find companies on the list of the Leaping Bunny which are not on PETAs list. There is not one complete list of all CF brands but Jen is doing a fine job here trying to do just that.

  • Emma

    Sorry for the lengthy comment, I hope this makes sense.. Basically, I’m somewhat new at trying to figure out which brands are cruelty free and which aren’t so when asking questions (regarding testing) to companies I can’t completely understand their responses. Meaning, I know some companies know how to word things so it sounds like they’re not testing when in actuality, they are. I sent Living Proof an email with some questions and received this response, “Thank you for your inquiry. Our policy is as follows: Safety is our top priority and we use the best and most advanced tools to achieve that. We do not test our finished products on animals, nor do we ask our suppliers to test them on our behalf. Our products are not sold in China.”
    This sounds like they’re not testing, however if they’re saying they don’t test ‘finished products’ and don’t ‘ask suppliers to test’ it seems like there’s still some grey areas. I’m mainly trying to figure out how to understand the responses from companies that way I don’t end up being led to think a company is CF solely because their response ‘sounds good.’ I know what questions to ask, just not what answers to look for. Mybeautybunny seems like one of the most knowledgable and reasonable resources out there regarding cruelty free products hence why I’m asking this here.

    Hi Kara – I’m not sure if Eve Pearl is CF. Let me know if you find out!

    Hi Emma – just because they don’t “ask their suppliers to test” doesn’t mean their suppliers don’t test. So I would say that one is iffy. Thanks for letting me know!

    It sounds legit, but I don’t know what that regulation means. Is that a European regulation?

    Thanks Becca!

    L’oreal no longer tests on animals.

    Unfortunately not. You can only trust the PETA logo and the Leaping Bunny logo (google how it looks – it is basically a flying bunny). All other “self made” bunny logos are not official and can mean that only the finished product itself is not tested but the ingredients might have been tested. On the other hand it does not mean that all self made bunnies are a lie either! They could be cruelty free as well. I found these self made bunnies on Tresemme and on Hawaiian Tropics. Both companies do test. :-(

    Ole Henrikson, Murad and Nude are cruelty free. Smashbox is cruelty free but owned by Estee Lauder. Origins is not cruelty free and sold in China.

    True!

    I want to try this but I am scared of the application because you have to do it with your fingers…

    L’Oreal sells in China — a country that requires animal testing. So they are not cruelty free. Hopefully they will change that at some point.

    Hi, I was wondering why Lavanila is not on your cruelty free list. You feature some of their products in older articles. Is the brand no longer cruelty free?

  • TL

    The essence website says its cf and I cannot see anything on their site that says they sell in China. Does anyone know if they are indeed cf?

    I’m at a standstill. Alot of different answers on the internet. Does Avon test on animals?

  • Izzy Perry

    I believe Avon sells in China – if they do, then yes, they do test on animals, because it is mandatory in China :(

  • Izzy Perry

    I started using Schmidt’s a few months ago – I was weirded out by the application at first too!! But honestly – after doing it once or twice, I’m not anymore. It’s actually kind of fun getting to rub your armpits LOL!! I love Schmidts. I find it works really well, and the scents are great – I’ve tried Lavender Sage and Ylang-Ylang and both are awesome! Try a travel-sized jar at first, but I don’t think you’ll be disappointed :)

  • Izzy Perry

    Try Schmidts. Once you get over the application, (which really isn’t so bad, it’s just not as convenient if you’re not at home) it’s pretty awesome. Kiss My Face also has one that works well, and is applied the “normal” way!!

    Shea moisture is leaping bunny certified! :)

    Live Clean is cruelty free as far as i know. Canadian drugstore find.

    Does makeup forever test on animals?

    Hi guys. This post is great. Difresh Pharma does not test on animals. Happy Holidays! We also have a dropshipping opportunity available for online resellers! jonathan.ohana@difreshpharma.com

  • Hjördís Rún

    Ok wait a minute, are you telling me that you can not sell makeup in China UNLESS they have been animal tested? That is the most crappy rule that has ever been made! And for human kind to go that far! What is wrong with people?!?

  • Mary

    Hi Jen, if a company does not test on animals but on it’s website offers worldwide shipping (including China) but does not have an actual registered Chinese website, does that mean its still safe to support them. For example, Zoeva ship worldwide but do not have a Chinese website, whereas, sephora do have their own Chinese website so their products would be required to test on animals but Zoeva’s products wouldn’t be required to test because they don’t have a registered Chinese site. Do I have that right? Sorry, I know it’s confusing :)

  • Mary

    Yes, Avon sell in China so are no longer cruelty free :(
