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.

    How about Ofra? They are supposed to be cruelty free and largely vegan…

    • Thursday - February 26, 2015 at 4:56 pm

      Hi Cheryl,

      OFRA is listed here is a cruelty free brand and they do have vegan items. :)

    Sorry to bother, but I would also LOVE to know about Petal Fresh Botanicals. They keep saying their products are not tested on animals, but what about the ingredients? They are PETA-certified, but to me it doesn’t mean much.

    • Thursday - February 26, 2015 at 6:48 pm

      Hi!

      You’re not bothering me at all. :) I receive about 100 comments and emails per day, so it’s hard to stay on top of it sometimes. :) Thanks for suggesting Petal Fresh! I just reached out to them and have added them to the Pending Brands list. Please check back in the future to see if they have moved to another area of the list.

    I was wondering if you had any information on the brand LASplash?

    • Thursday - February 26, 2015 at 6:33 pm

      Hi!

      I’ve reached out to them and they have been added to the Pending Brands list. Please keep an eye out for updates. :)

    I recently have been researching about the limecrime brand, because I was intrigued by the colors and that it said it was vegan, but it turns out Doe Deere has been very untruthful, and a lot of her products show ingredients with “beswax.” Not even spelled right. The brand is very shady, and not in a good gradient of colors way..

    • Wednesday - February 25, 2015 at 8:59 pm

      Hi Tessa,

      The brand phased out the use of beeswax in 2012 and now uses synthetic beeswax. If you look at the ingredient listings, you will see “Synthetic Beeswax” listed as an ingredient but not “beeswax”. I hope this helped to clarify things!

    I looked up Ahisma Naturals and only turned up Ahimsa. Is Ahisma a typo or are they two different companies?

    • Wednesday - February 25, 2015 at 1:34 pm

      It was a typo. Thanks for pointing that out, Elyse! :)

    Hi! I use the cruelty cutter app, and it says that Ciate’s parent company tests…just FYI.

    • Thursday - February 26, 2015 at 6:49 pm

      Hi Jen!

      I have been digging into Ciate and cannot locate any information on a parent company. They also told me that they do not have a parent company. :-/ Did the app list a parent company?
