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.

    Dose of Colors new highlighters have carmine- so they are no longer an 100% vegan company.

    • Thursday - November 20, 2014 at 9:36 pm

      I noticed this as well. This is very sad. I’ve updated the list to reflect that they are no longer 100% vegan.

    lime crime isn’t 100% vegan. they use beeswax in their eyeshadow primer.

    • Monday - November 10, 2014 at 12:14 pm

      Hi Joy,

      All of their products have been reformulated and are now vegan. It’s an awesome change that Lime Crime made!

      The eyeshadow primer no longer contains beeswax and currently the ingredient listing is: “Cyclopentasiloxane, Isododecane, Polyethylene, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Talc, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Wax, VP/Eicosene Copolymer, Phenyl Trimethicone, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Silica, Propylene Carbonate, Phenoxyethanol, Polybutene, Caprylyl Glycol. May Contain: Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides. (CI 77891). (CI 77491, 77492, 77499). VEGAN/CRUELTY-FREE.”

        Like Crime lies to their customers & changes ingredients constantly. I highly suggest your move this brand from your list & research the company and their shady practices in more depth.

        • Friday - November 14, 2014 at 1:46 pm

          Hi TD,

          I have heard a lot of these rumors but in the past couple of years haven’t seen or dealt with anything shady from them myself. They have switched all products to be vegan and I haven’t seen any change back. They also have had no issues answering my questions about animal testing, use of animal ingredients, or vegan options. I have talked to them multiple times over the past couple of years. I have also looked at their ingredients lists often and haven’t seen any flip flopping from vegan to non-vegan and back. Just changing from non-vegan to vegan. I think their past reputation affects them a lot, but I feel like they have done a lot to try and overcome it too.

    Hi Tashina, phyrra claims that garnier is now cruelty free because they no longer sell in China? Is that true?

    • Monday - November 10, 2014 at 12:18 pm

      Hi Mary,

      I do not consider Garnier to be cruelty free as they still state that they test on animals when required by law.

      Even if they no longer sell in China, testing by law may still occur. This could mean that ingredients are tested as required by law or that their formulations may be. Even the US and EU requires some testing by law on specific ingredients and formulations. Since the brand has not clarified to me that they do not allow any testing, I simply do not feel comfortable promoting them as cruelty free. Their current animal testing statement is: “L’Oréal no longer tests any of its products or any of its ingredients on animals, anywhere in the world nor does L’Oréal delegate this task to others. An exception could only be made if regulatory authorities demanded it for safety or regulatory purposes. For complete information on this subject, please click here.” It links to

    Kat Von D’s makeup line is cruelty free, she’s made a statement about it as well.

    • Monday - November 10, 2014 at 10:02 pm

      Hi Melissa,

      Kat Von D’s line is part of the Sephora collection lines. This means that Sephora owns the brand and controls the manufacturing processes. I have been told several times by Sephora that all of their lines, including hers, fall under their “required by law” animal testing stance. I have asked the Kat Von D brand, and even Kat herself, multiple times about this and they have not been able to tell me otherwise. Because of this, I am not comfortable endorsing them as cruelty free.
