Cruelty Free Brands

Some of these brands are fully vegan and some are not, but each of them will give you vegan options.

I wish that more companies would go fully vegan. We can see, things are getting better for sure so keep the hope and work on it! You as a customer have the loudest voice!

Skin care, Make-up…etc.

Buy only cruelty free&vegan brushes. Do not support cruel practices in beauty industry. Cruel beauty is not beauty, it is sadism!!!


Brands with parent company:

Here I put brands that don’t do animal testing and many people consider them as cruelty free, but I have mixed feelings about them. I must be fair, there is nothing wrong with these brands, only they have been bought by different [parent] company and even though they still have their own cruelty free policy, their parent company is NOT cruelty free.

 I prefer buying from brands that are owned by themselves. But choice is always yours and now you know and can make conscious decision.

Here they are:

  • Aveda ( owned by Estee Lauder )
  • Bare Minerals ( owned by Shiseido )
  • Cover Girl ( owned by Coty , recently  -November 2018 -pulled out of China’s market and got Leaping Bunny certification BUT WAIT WHAT’S  GONNA HAPPEN – I wouldn’t rush with purchase yet !!!
  • Dermatologica ( owned by Unilever )
  • Hourglass ( owned by Unilever )
  • Kat Von D ( owned by Kendo that is also own by LVMH )
  • NYX
  • Schmidt’s Naturals ( 100% Vegan )  – owned by Unilever
  • Too Faced ( owned by Estee Lauder )
  • Urban Decay ( owned by L’Oréal )
  • REN ( owned by Unilever )

 

PS: Another year passed ( November 2018 ) and I realized that I’m buying Kat Von D products. KVD has parent company Kendo that is cruelty free but this company is owned by company LVMH that is not cruelty free. Uff, bit confusing I suppose. But anyway,I have to be fair and say the truth. I was thinking for so long how will I feel about that and if it will give clear message to the world that I still want cruelty free products and I somehow got to the conclusion that I want buy certain products from her because KVD supports animals and uses her voice to fight against animal cruelty and there is the value + hope that one day she will leave her parent companies behind. Fingers crossed.


 


 

Waiting area:

These are brands I contacted by email and I still didn’t get any reply. This doesn’t mean anything yet, but I can’t put them to any category unless I’ll read their cruelty free statements. And for your information, It’s really not enough to read: ‘ We do not test on animals’. It says nothing.

Here is example of questions. Each of you can do the same, because the more people will ask, the more companies will know how much we care. They might not become cruelty free, because they have heart and feelings on right place, but because they will have to. Otherwise they’ll lose customers.

Questions:

Are you testing finished product on animals?

Are ingredients tested on animals?

Is anyone [third party] test on your behalf?

Are your suppliers cruelty free?

Do you sell in mainland China or anywhere else in the WORLD where animal testing is required by law ?

 

Here they are:

  • Amie skin care
  • Beautiful Me ( carry Leaping Bunny logo, but I asked for additional information and there’s no reply )
  • Bulldog ( yes, Bulldog was bought by Edgewell Personal Care which is  NOT cruelty free company. There is a question if Bulldog will stay cruelty free or not. Until further research, Bulldog will stay in Waiting area. )
  • Burberry ( this is cruel brand no doubt, but I asked them if they would consider to go cruelty free and pull out from China’s market. There was no reply as I expected and it’s pitty as I used to love their perfumes years ago )
  • Lilly’s Eco Clean ( unfortunately I didn’t receive any reply from this brand and also Bunny on their packaging is not recognizable symbol )
  • Nature’s Aid ( I’m not happy with their answer- read statements )
  • Youngblood minerals ( this brand is cruelty free, but I asked for additional information and didn’t get any reply )
