Cruelty-Free Cosmetic Brands | Makeup, Hair + Skincare

One of the most important things to me is the treatment of animals. Animal cruelty comes in many different forms, and lab testing is one of the most well known forms. In the cosmetic world, more and more companies are beginning to steer clear of animal testing. 

Nowadays, consumers just look for the most popular brands on social media without really taking the time to research those brands. Now, I’m not saying I’m perfect because I too have done this before, especially when I first started blogging. But now I have started to pay closer attention to the products that I buy.

I try to look for products that are cruelty free, chemical free, paraben free, etc. I know this may be hard, especially when it comes to cosmetics. It is especially hard to stop using one of your favorite products once you find out that company does not support your beliefs. Trust me, I know.

If you are an environmental advocate and cannot live with the thought of using products that are tested on animals, I’ve compiled a list of some well known, cruelty-free cosmetic brands including makeup, hair and skincare. Take a look!

*This list does not include every single cruelty-free company. These are just some of the well known brands that I figured most people would recognize. If you do not see a company listed, it does not necessarily mean they test on animals. Either check the website below or check that company’s website for more information.


Stay pretty!
