Finding cruelty-free drugstore brands isn’t easy. Target, Walgreens, CVS, and Walmart are flooded with non-cruelty-free makeup and all the big brands such as L’Oreal, Maybelline, Revlon, Rimmel London, and CoverGirl test on animals.

However there are plenty of cruelty-free alternatives out there! I’ve put together this list to help you make the right choices. Once you’re aware of the animal testing policies of these companies, you’ll find that it’s very easy to find good budget-friendly brands and products at your local drugstore.

The list below is constantly updated. More brands will be added as I get in touch with the companies.
