This has been requested before a few times, so I’m sorry it’s so late. I was trying to figure out the easiest way to put this together. I’ve divided it up into 3 tables: Brands that are completely vegan, brands that are completely cruelty free, and brands that are cruelty free but owned by companies that aren’t.
Let’s get something out of the way first. Cruelty free means that their products were not tested on animals. There are no laws in the States or here that demand a beauty company test on animals before they hit the market. China however does have such a law for foreign beauty companies, where they’re required to test on animals before selling to the general public. You probably read about Nars reneging on their cruelty free status recently, it’s because they’re selling in China now.
Vegan means that not only are they cruelty free, but they don’t use any animal products whatsoever in their items, e.g. carmine which is often found in red lipsticks, so a lipstick with carmine in it is not vegan. Cruelty free brands offer vegan products, and you’ll often see them listed on their sites, such as Beauty Bakerie. Other cruelty free brands are actively working on making all their products vegan, such as Kat Von D.
Cruelty Free Brands owned by Companies which are not
Meanwhile, there are cruelty free brands that are owned by companies that do test on animals. The biggest players in the beauty industry are Estée Lauder and L’oreal, who between them own most of the popular brands accessible to us. The Body Shop for instance, a brand associated with being cruelty free, is owned by L’oreal.
