10 Cruelty-Free Cosmetic Brands
Few would refute that we’re becoming more and more environmentally conscious, with sustainable fashion becoming a trend, widespread condemnation of the use of plastic straws and growing movements like Extinction.
After the death of three horses during the 2019 Grand National, a meme went viral highlighting the hypocrisy of female outrage at this animal cruelty, when the majority of cosmetic-brands test on animals.
We would, therefore, like to highlight not all cosmetic brands test on animals and not all women use cosmetics. To further limit the claims of hypocrisy, we have listed ten cruelty-free make-up brands, that if you’re not already using, you should definitely give a try.
Anastasia Beverly Hills – This Company, famous for its eyebrow products is a personal favourite, mainly because they are cruelty-free!
Charlotte Tilbury –Charlotte Tilbury is a luxury cosmetic brand that is cruelty-free with an increasing number of vegan products including their magic foundation.
CoverFX – CoverFX is well known for their foundations, having a wide shade range that could rival Mac! Not only is that brand cruelty-free but their foundations are 100% vegan.
e.l.f - This popular cheap and cheerful brand remains cruelty-free.
Glossier – Over the last two years, Glossier has undoubtedly made a name for itself. With its minimalist looks, we too can see the appeal. But what’s even more significant is that Glossier is cruelty-free and has several vegan products.
Hourglass- Hourglass is a perfect example of luxurious, quality cosmetics that remain cruelty-free. Proving that animal testing is unnecessary as it does not enhance the quality of cosmetics.
NYX - NYX is not only cruelty-free, but they have many products that are vegan-friendly. However, they are also owned by Loreal which does permit animal testing.
Pur Cosmetics – This up-and-coming brand delivers high-quality cruelty-free cosmetics without breaking the bank!
The Balm – This brand is a favourite ‘hidden gem’ of ours, it’s packaging is super retro, and the Balm is a well-known alternative to benefit cosmetics (which is not a cruelty-free brand).
Too faced – This fan favourite is particularly popular amongst millennials and is well known for its palettes. Too Faced does not test on animals; however, it is owned by L’Oréal which does test permit animal testing.
