As I am a cruelty-free makeup artist/collector, I try to stay very informed on which brands are and are not cruelty-free. This goes from reading other blogs, accreditation with Leaping Bunny or PETA, and even if it's listed in those locations doing research myself to determine if a brand is truly cruelty free. Just because a brand is accredited doesn't always mean they are actually cruelty free. In the past I made a blog post about cruelty free brands, but wanted to keep it in one general location that was easy to access and find on my blog as that's my main focus when I'm picking out things to purchase/review/use.
I am also going to add notes if the brand is cruelty free but a parent company is not, or if the brand has vegan options.
Want to search this list?
If you are on Windows then hit Ctrl + F or on a Mac Command + F to open a search box. Then just type in the brand you are looking for and press enter. If the brand is listed, your browser should automatically scroll to it. If you cannot find a brand on the list then they are either in a grey area (couldn't find even information to support their stance one way or another) or they are brands to avoid.
