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!

  • http://www.peoria-chiropractor-acupuncture.com Doc Jec

    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!

    I appreciate people who values animals and the environment. I want to support your advocacy and I look forward to receive your newsletters.

    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.

  • http://www.toptiermedia.com chiefbunny

    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.

    Essie is NOT cruelty free. :(

  • 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”

    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.

    Hi I wanted to ask, do you havea list of cosmetics that on top of being cruelty-free are also chemical- free? I love cruelty-free makeup but some of them tend to have a lot of cancer-related chemicals like parabens. For example I like Elf products but they have loads of parabens and it worries me. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you for your time!

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

    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.
