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 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.

Brands to Avoid

Please avoid purchasing these brands and support animal friendly brands instead.

    Hi Tashina, I write from Chile because I have a great doubt about Bourjois, because they declare not testing in animals but I read on internet that they sold in China. Do you know something information? I have a little shop cruelty free in my countryand I import a lots of products cruelty free and I don’t want to sell products without clear information.
    Sorry for my english jeje, thank you!

      Hi Amanda!

      Bourjois is currently on the Pending Brands list and I am waiting to hear back from them. Bourjois does sell in Hong Kong which is a part of China but does not have the same animal testing laws. I have heard rumors that they sell in China but have not seen concrete evidence. Until I receive a response, I cannot speak about their animal testing policies.

    pureology hair care products are 100 vegan & i definitely recommend them!

    • Tuesday - January 27, 2015 at 8:08 pm

      Hi Gen!

      It is true that the Pureology line is cruelty free and vegan. It is currently listed as a cruelty free brand. However, it is important to note that their parent company does test on animals. :(

  3. Tuesday - January 27, 2015 at 12:34 pm

    Hi Tashina,
    On this list, where is says “sprout” is that referring to the brand made by Sprouts grocery store?
    Thanks!

    • Tuesday - January 27, 2015 at 8:09 pm

      Hi Brittany,

      I just updated it to be more specific. The brand is Sprout Skincare. :) Thanks for asking for clarification. I’m sure this confused others as well.

    How come Kryolan isn’t on this list? As far as I was aware, they were cruelty-free?

    • Sunday - January 18, 2015 at 11:34 am

      Hi Bushra,

      Kryolan is currently on the Pending Brands list. Please check back in the future to see what list they are on. This will depend on how fast I hear back from them.

    Thank you for all your work in compiling and updating this list. I would like to suggest Face Atelier which is a brand that states they are cruelty free and clearly states which of their products have animal ingredients https://www.faceatelier.com/vegan/).

    • Sunday - January 18, 2015 at 2:02 pm

      Thanks for suggesting this brand, Amparo! I haven’t looked into them before, which is why they don’t appear on the list. I’ve just sent them an inquiry and have added them to the pending brands list. Please check back in the future to see what list they are on. This will depend on how fast I hear back from them.

    Do you know if Simple skin care brand is cruelty free?

    • Sunday - January 18, 2015 at 2:26 pm

      Hi Davonne,

      Simple Skincare is currently listed on the Brands to Avoid list. They stated that they do conduct required by law animal testing.

        Thanks Tashina, I was wondering the same thing. Many months ago when I contacted them via Twitter they told me they were cruelty free, but then I could never find any information supporting that.

    I really wish you would answer my question I submitted a week ago. I’m Just getting started going cruelty free/vegan. I really need a couple good recommendations on skin care (cleanser/moisturizer) that don’t break the bank on price.

    Much appreciated!

    • Friday - January 16, 2015 at 10:10 pm

      Hi Lynn!

      I receive 50-100 comments per day and most require a personal response. I try to get to them all as quickly as I can. Thank you for your patience! :)
