BEST CRUELTY FREE BRANDS LIST 2017


I find animal testing for cosmetic cruel and unnecessary and so I decided to switch to cruelty free cosmetic. Here is my list of cruelty free makeup /cosmetic brands that I created to make cruelty free shopping for you easier!

There is only 2 official logos you can really trust. But not always does a cruelty free brand choose to use one of these logos- therefore it is sometimes hard to see right away if a brand does participate in animal testing.

For my list I used Phyrra (She is the reason that I switched in 2014 to cruelty free. I was recently able to meet her in person- you can read my little interview here),  Logical Harmony, My Beauty BunnyPETA and The Leaping Bunny. Also: sometimes a company is cruelty free but owned by a company that is not. You have to decide for yourself, if you you like to support these companies.
