Cruelty Free & Vegan Brand List

Logical Harmony Cruelty Free & Vegan Brand List

Whether you want to buy all vegan products, or just start incorporating more cruelty free makeup products into your life, it’s always great to go animal friendly. You’ll also be surprised at how many large companies still test on animals. However, it’s very easy to find animal friendly alternatives to any products you’re currently using! Show brands who do test on animals that you only want to support them if they change their ways. You can do this by purchasing from cruelty free makeup brands, skincare brands, hair care brands, and household brands. These are brands who do not test on animals and offer items that do not use animal ingredients. You’ll end up finding a lot of great items that you can feel good about buying.

As I hear back from brands about their stance on animal testing and animal ingredients, they will be added below. At Logical Harmony, there is a very thorough process for finding out if I want to include a company in this list or not (learn more about that process).

Only brands that Logical Harmony hears from will be included in this list. It’s not an aggregation of information from other sites. Logical Harmony does all it’s own brand research and includes only brands that we can be sure are cruelty free with vegan options. These brands are also contacted on regular basis so that this list can stay fresh and up to date.

This list includes brands that are cruelty free but owned by a parent company who is not. Everyone should decide for themselves what they are comfortable purchasing. At Logical Harmony, I would rather people support these brands than a non-cruelty free option. For those who are just getting started with transitioning to animal friendly products, this can be a great place to start! However, please keep in mind that purchasing from these brands is still going to financially benefit the parent company.

Is a brand you love not included on this list? Have you received word from the brand that their status may have changed? Please feel free to contact Logical Harmony and let me know. I want to make this list as expansive as possible.

All brands on this list are cruelty free with some vegan items. Brands listed in bold offer only cruelty free and vegan items. It’s noted next to a brand if they have a parent company that is not cruelty free, but they have remained a cruelty free brand.

    Inglot does NOT test on animals

    • Thursday - August 21, 2014 at 10:21 am

      Hi Maja,

      It’s true that Inglot does not test on animals themselves. However, they did tell me that they do not ask nor do they require that their ingredient suppliers be cruelty-free. This is why I cannot endorse them as being cruelty free.

    Bookmarked your page. I love the extensive detail; I was just about to switch to Bath and Body works but thanks to you I found out about their parent company. I do not want to give my money to cruelty. Thank you so much! I really really appreciate the work that you are doing :)

      Thank you so much for the kind words, Tanay! I really appreciate it!

    Hi Tashina

    I just want to thank you so much for this article.. I’ve been trying to do some research on the products I own and it’s a bit hard to find a list so simple like yours. Thank you for your research it’s very helpful! Now I just need to do some research on which of the 100% vegan brands are affordable, wish me luck! ????

    • Thursday - August 21, 2014 at 10:22 am

      I’m so glad that this was helpful for you, Tatiana! A lot of the 100% vegan brands are becoming easier to find and more affordable. Pacifica is a great affordable option and everything they make is cruelty free and vegan.

    I thought Aveda was cruelty free. They go into it extensively on their website. They have always been very environmentally conscious.

    I just purchased a few stuff from bareMinerals before checking this list. It is nice to know that they are cruelty free but now i feel a bit guilty that their parent company is not. I dont know what to think anymore, whether i should continue to buy from them or not…

    • Thursday - August 21, 2014 at 10:25 am

      I think that’s a personal decision that everyone needs to make for themselves. It’s important to know where your money is going. I do feel that most people, when given the choice, would choose the brand without a parent company who tests on animals. But, at the end of the day, only you know what you are the most comfortable with.

    Thank you SO much for this list! I was doing crazy researches for my next concealer, as my MAC one ran out (I’ll never buy it anymore). I was so worried about animal testing standards and companie’s owner (like, I felt really happy when I found out Urban Decay doesnt do testing, but I absolutely HATE Loreal and I’m definitely not buying it. For me it changes nothing, you’re still giving money to filthy monsters). I guess I’ll stop by the next Lush shop I see!

      You’re very welcome, Bettina! I’m glad that it’s been helpful to you so far.

    Thank you so much for this. I have been giving $140 to Aveda every other month thinking that they were cruelty-free because that was what they led me to believe. After looking at your list I did some research. So thank you.

    • Tuesday - August 12, 2014 at 7:20 am

      You’re welcome, Lauren! That’s great that you found an a new place to go and a cruelty free company to support!

    I found an article that bite beauty is cruelty free, whether they are vegan or not I do not know. And I’m not sure how you verify your information but good luck!

    • Tuesday - August 12, 2014 at 7:21 am

      Hi Michelle,

      Thanks for sharing this! I do all my research with the brand. I have a very specific set of questions and speak to the brand directly about it. So while this is helpful for some, it’s not enough for me to list Bite Beauty as cruelty free. I really appreciate you sharing it though! :)

    Too bad Arbonne isn’t on your first list as they are Certified Vegan!! Just call their 1-800 # and get clarification! Not only are their final products not tested on animals but no ingredients in their final products are tested on animals! No animal products or by-products! 100% vegan!!
    How can Burt’s Bees be cruelty free when there are bees products in their products? Bees living in bee farms is cruelty!

    • Tuesday - August 12, 2014 at 7:23 am

      Hi Lori,

      I’ve spoken to many Arbonne reps and several people at the corporate office. None of which were able to answer my questions and just offered a blanket “we are cruelty free” statement. In order to list a brand as cruelty free, I do require that they be able to clearly answer specific questions. If a brand is not able to do so, I don’t feel comfortable endorsing them as cruelty free.

      As far as Burt’s Bees goes, they do not test on animals (though their parent company does) and they do have some vegan options. All products featured on Logical Harmony are cruelty free and vegan. I use this list as a way to provide consumers with access to brands and feel that everyone should decide for themselves on if they want to use animal ingredients or not.
