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.

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.

Pending Brands

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.

    Bite Beauty is vegan I read it in the package

    • Thursday - October 30, 2014 at 6:05 am

      Hi Gabriela,

      While they have vegan options, they are not a 100% vegan line. I have seen several animal ingredients (carmine, lanolin, beeswax) in their products.

    What about Kat Von D? I was told that they are a cruelty free company.

    • Monday - October 27, 2014 at 11:55 am

      Hi Misty,

      The Kat Von D line is a Sephora collection line. I have been told many times by Sephora that all of their Sephora collection lines, including Kat Von D, fall under their “required by law” animal testing stance. The Kat Von D team and Kat herself have not stated otherwise even when I have asked them directly. Because of this, I have Kat Von D listed as a Brand to Avoid.

    Inglot isn’t cruelty free? o.O This is the first time I’ve heard. Almost everywhere else is saying they don’t test on animals. Wow. I feel betrayed lol

    • Sunday - October 26, 2014 at 9:20 pm

      Hi Maria,

      Inglot told me that they themselves do not test the items on animals, but they do not ask or require that their ingredient suppliers be cruelty free.

    I’m so grateful that you’ve compiled this list. I am a professional artist and will begin hosting hands-on workshops in 2015. I want to ensure that the brands I use during my workshops are vegan and cruelty-free so I appreciate your work.

    BareMinerals actually uses Carmine (red colorant extracted from beetles) in MANY of its blushes/products.

    I switched to Modern Minerals, they’re 100% vegan and cruelty free, and are adamant about it.

    • Monday - September 29, 2014 at 11:03 am

      Hi Grace,

      BareMinerals is not a 100% vegan brand, but they do have vegan options. This list includes brands with vegan options. 100% vegan brands are in bold with “100% vegan” noted next to the brand name. Modern Minerals is a great option for those looking for vegan products!

    Hello Tashina,

    Do you consider Anastasia Beverly Hills as a cruelty-free company?

    • Thursday - September 25, 2014 at 8:10 pm

      Hi Alexa,

      They are currently on my Pending Brands list. In the past, they had told me that they are cruelty-free but had no vegan options. Since I receive so many questions about them I added them back to the Pending Brands list and have continued to reach out. However, I am no longer receiving any response from their team. :-/

  9. Tuesday - September 23, 2014 at 10:17 am

    Bare Minerals isn’t vegan 100%. Also could you add Arbonne to the list. They are cruelty free and 100% vegan

    • Thursday - September 25, 2014 at 8:21 pm

      Hi Becky,

      You are correct that Bare Minerals isn’t 100% vegan. They are cruelty-free and do have vegan options, which is why they are included on this list. But only 100% vegan brands are in bold with “100% vegan” next to the brand name.

      Arbonne is currently on the Grey Area list. I have talked to several people at the corporate office and several reps. None of them have been able to answer the questions that I send brands to determine if they are cruelty-free with vegan options.

    Are you sure all the CoverFX products are vegan? I read that some of the products (Bronzers, Lips) are not?

    • Thursday - September 25, 2014 at 8:22 pm

      Hi Anni,

      I was recently told by the brand that all of their items are vegan. I check in with brands every 3-4 months, so I will be sure to update the list if I hear otherwise. And if you find out otherwise, please let me know!
