Having access to vegan and cruelty-free makeup is a hugely important issue for socially conscious makeup lovers. We all want to look our best, but not at the expense of defenseless creatures.
That's why we're championing cruelty-free makeup choices with this master post of brands that don't test on animals.
Cruelty Free Beauty Brands
For a brand to be considered cruelty free on our list, the company has to confirm that they do not test on animals or source ingredients from companies who do. Some companies listed here are owned by companies known to sell in China (China requires animal testing on all cosmetics), see: L'Oreal.
"BECCA test its products comprehensively in human clinical trials. All trials are conducted on paid volunteers and neither BECCA, nor any company contracted to BECCA, conducts tests on animals.”
"ELF is cruelty-free. They do not test on animals."

"For the last 20 years, we have campaigned for anti-animal-testing legislation to apply to cosmetics companies operating inside the European Union (EU), making it illegal to test, market or sell products and ingredients tested on animals."
NYX (Although owned by L'Oreal who fund testing in China)
"Nyx cosmetics is certified and acknowledged by organizations, such as PETA, as a cruelty-free brand. We are committed to producing 100% cruelty-free cosmetics. We do not test any of our products on animals."
