Last Updated February 14, 2023
Welcome to my Cruelty-Free Makeup Brands List 2023! I choose to support cruelty-free brands even if they have a parent company that is not cruelty free. I believe that supporting animal-friendly companies goes a long way toward the eventual elimination of animal testing. If a brand is not cruelty free but decides to go cruelty free, I will support them! I want brands to stop testing on animals.
Please note, I believe that PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies List and Leaping Bunny’s Cruelty-Free Lists to both be accurate. I reference both of those sites. My list is as comprehensive as I’ve been able to make it, but new brands are popping up every day, and I add them as fast as I can.

New Cruelty-Free Makeup Brands List
My new Cruelty-Free Makeup Brands List is easily searchable! You can choose a letter from the drop down, or click any of the boxes to refine your search.
- When you see the green dot for vegan next to a brand, that means that the brand is either 100% vegan or has an easy to shop vegan section on their website.
- The grey dot means that the brand is cruelty-free but has a non-cruelty-free parent company.
- When you see the pink dot, it means a brand is Leaping Bunny Certified, the gold standard for cruelty-free beauty!
- See a list of grey area brands and brands that test on animals.
Please Note: I now believe that all PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies Program Brands are cruelty-free. Here’s why. I’m still working on adding all PETA brands to my list.
