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.

If you have any questions about any of the brands listed above, please let us know. They are all brands that the Logical Harmony team has written confirmation from. All of the brands listed above have great customer service departments. If you have questions about if specific items they carry are vegan, don’t hesitate to e-mail them and ask.

Brands to Avoid

The following brands are not cruelty free or vegan. This could mean that they engage in testing themselves, through a 3rd party, as required by law, or use ingredients that are tested on animals. Brands will also be added to this list if they state that they do not verify or check with their suppliers or affiliates about animal testing. Please avoid purchasing these brands and support animal friendly brands instead.

These are brands that Logical Harmony has reached out to about their stance on animal testing and is waiting to receive a response. Once a response is received, the brand will be moved to the appropriate list. If several attempts are made to contact these brands and they do not respond, they may be moved to the Grey Area Brand list.

    Hey! I would like to know if you have done some research about korean cosmetics brands. I think they are becoming quite popular in some countries.

    Thank you very much :)
