Cruelty Free Makeup Brands you’ll love!

An ever growing list of cruelty free makeup brands you’ll love from low-cost to luxury. Plus tips on how to work out if a brand is really cruelty free…

What is Cruelty Free?

In a nut shell, a cruelty free makeup product has no animal tested ingredients and the finished product is not tested either. Sometimes brands don’t conduct testing themselves but buy ingredients that have been tested by their manufacturer so its always a good idea to do a google first or you can check the list below for your favourite brands.

A great resource is PETA and also The Leaping Bunny websites as they help to investigate, regulate and certify cruelty free brands, their parent companies and look for vegan brands too. You can also contact a brand directly to get specific info on a product you’re looking at.

Unfortunately Brazil and China require by law that products entering the country are to be tested before they can be sold. There are a few loop holes that The Body Shop and Nude Stix have managed to jump through but they are the only brands I know of that have been able to sell their products in China without the testing taking place. But they are the only brands I know of that have been able to do so.
