Cruelty Free Brands

Tweet: Are your favorite beauty brands cruelty free? Click to find out! via @MyBeautyBunny http://ctt.ec/7e4fS+


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.

    I totally agree with My Beauty Bunny regarding cruelty free brands owned by companies who do test! :) You are awesome 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!

  • http://www.suestone.com/one-to-one-coaching.html Sue Stone

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

  • Kimberly

    I am a little confused about your list of testers and non-testers. Wet N’ Wild is manufactured in China, where animal testing is required, yet they are on the no testing list?

  • http://www.toptiermedia.com chiefbunny

    Kimberly – it doesn’t matter where a product is manufactured. It only matters where it is sold (via distributor or retail store).

  • Kris

    Are there any cruelty-free dupes for CoverGirl Simply Ageless foundation?

  • Flyingbunny

    I have heard that AESOP doesn’t test its products and ingredients on animals but have not seen their name listed on any cruelty-free list.

    What’s the status on AESOP?

  • April Polichette

    Good list! Also IT Cosmetics and Red Apple Lipstick are amazing beauty companies that are cruelty free <3

    Wow Glad to see so many cruelty-free companies but you forgot my favorite…Nourish Organic! I’ve seen you write about them before though so I know you still enjoy them as much as I do :)

  • http://www.marieterrytattoo.com London Tattoo Artist

    Awesome, Thank You! I am always looking for more extensive lists on cruelty free products. Especially the make-up is hard to find. I also use vegan and cruelty free tattoo ink and aftercare products at work and have been convincing other London tattoo artists to do the same since years. I’ll definitely share this page wherever I can.

  • Kyrie

    My mom had a Mary Kay saleswoman come to our house 2-3 years ago and my mom said that she was told Mary Kay didn’t animal test. Now my mom has 50% of her make-up by Mary Kay and now they’re not CF. >:(

  • Randi

    Your lists aren’t opening today. I can’t see any of the companies. I’ve tried with 2 different browsers.

  • http://eleganceandbeautyreviews.com Jen

    SOOOooo Many companies, so many products, and the saddest thing is so many animals and bunnies being used to test on. :( Breaks my heart about China, I had no clue!
    What do they do with the animals that are damaged?

    Another blog post, I’ll be tweeting/sharing!

    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.

    Thank you for this wonderful site! I have red hair and I have been looking everywhere for an auburn brow pencil. I found your post on the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow fillers / pencil. I see them on this cruelty free list but I do not see them listed on the Leaping Bunny page. Are they still cruelty free? 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.

    Great resource! Who knew that Burt’s Bees was owned by Clorox? Weird. And, Trader Joe’s products are cruelty free, of course. I mean, could I love them any more? Interesting that China requires animal testing. I think we should be true to the statement “Dermatologist Tested” and only test on dermatologists. Just a thought.

  • 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,
    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.

    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

    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

    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?

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.

    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

    Jordana is listed as CF in a news release by PETA this past Jund 2014. Yay :-)

  • Jenzy

    Yes, they are on the list, you must have missed it =)

  • Dani

    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.

  • 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!)

  • Amber

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

  • ebcangel

    Does anyone know if Sabon NYC is cruelty free? They state “SABON does not test, nor have ever tested the products on animals. Our mission is to offer our valued customers top quality products, which have been tested in laboratories and conform to the European and Romanian quality standards, in order to ensure usage safety.” http://www.sabon.ro/shop/en/commitments

    But that may just be the finished product. Does anyone know?

  • 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.

    Although it is on the list, I saw it crossed out with a note written beside it saying “where required by law” (apparently says on the B&BW official site).

  • Sadie

    What about It Cosmetics? I see them on some cruelty free sites and not on others, like this one.

    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.

    This is a choice everybody has to choose on their own but I think we can all agree that animal testing for cosmetics should be banned. The brand Paula´s choice still is CF- no matter what kind of opinions they have referring to animal testing for medications.

  • http://www.beauty4free2u.com Beauty4Free2U

    It cosmetics is CF! :-)

  • http://www.beauty4free2u.com Beauty4Free2U

    This is really a tough one! None has truly worked for me. I have next Lavanila, Dr. Hauschka and Weleda on the to try list. I read bad reviews about Tom´s. Also: Certain Dri is CF but it contains Aluminium which I wanted to avoid…

  • http://www.beauty4free2u.com Beauty4Free2U

    Revlon pulled out of China but they still state that they would test if “required by law”, so you can not really consider them CF at the moment. BH cosmetics is cruelty free and are now Leaping Bunny certified!

  • http://www.beauty4free2u.com Beauty4Free2U
  • http://www.beauty4free2u.com Beauty4Free2U

    Dr. Hauschka is CF!

  • http://www.beauty4free2u.com Beauty4Free2U

    Origins is listed on PETA as NOT CF. Johnson & Johnson bought the distribution rights for Korres in North and South America. J&J is not CF. The choice is up to you!

  • http://www.beauty4free2u.com Beauty4Free2U

    Have you tried Cerave? Or Alba Botanica or Burts Bees or Avalon Organics? ;-)

  • http://www.beauty4free2u.com Beauty4Free2U

    Yes, they are CF!

  • http://www.beauty4free2u.com Beauty4Free2U

    Yes, it is true. Unfortunately we do not have Catrice in the US.

  • Sadie

    Ok, thanks. do you know why they are not on the cruelty free list on this site?

  • Carolyn

    Is Acure cruelty free?
