Cruelty Free Brands

I get lots of questions about what brands are cruelty-free and lots of queries asking how you can tell if a product is or not. Unfortunately, most brands aren’t marked as cruelty-free but this doesn’t mean they are not, I personally think the best way to ensure the products you’re buying haven’t been tested on animals is to double-check online. I know it can be a faf but at the end of the day, surely it’s worth the 30 seconds of time googling to ensure you’re not giving money to a company that supports and pays for the testing of their products on animals.

What I do is have some trusted lists of cruelty-free brands saved on my favourites on Safari on my phone, so I simply click on that when I have a product I’m thinking about buying in my hand and check if it is a brand I am happy to give my pennies to. After a while you get to know the brands that are cruelty-free and so the list isn’t needed as often but at first, it’s a great way to give yourself that peace of mind.

I’ve put together this list of cruelty-free products that you could save to your bookmarks or favourites to use for reference like I do. The brands are listed alphabetically and the (P) show PETA approved brands. There are hundreds more cruelty-free brands but I thought this was a good range to start with if you find this helpfully please give the post a like or a comment so I know to do more like it in the future.
