Animal Cruelty Free Cosmetic Brands: 18 Brands + Tips

As we all know there are a couple of important topics anno 2018 that keeps the conversation going. One of the most discussed is animal cruelty, (testing for beauty and cosmetics or the fur industry) something that is really close to my heart. There is so much going on in this world that we cannot change but if we all try at least, important things will get better.

First thing first: I wanted to let you know that everyone stands for their own things: someone stands up for children, others for animals, … and we should see it as an inspiration instead of turning it into something negative. There are a lot of things that needs to be changed when it comes to animal testing but those are things that I don’t have enough knowledge about to jump in that conversation with opinion.


To continue: most of the time I don’t eat meat and I try to eat biological food, but I’m not vegan although I try to learn as much about the products that are good for us, the animals and environment. It isn’t an excuse but there is so much to learn.

So this morning I was doing my make-up and all of a sudden I was thinking about the beauty products that I’m using and that a lot of people have so little knowledge about the products they use on a daily basis.
If you want to start and learn somewhere careful, then you can start with this.
Like me I’m really against fur and animal testing. As that said, it happens sometimes that I use products that aren’t cruelty free as I learned that today from research.
Lucky me, 90% of my beauty products are already consisted off the brands below.

So for those who didn’t know it yet or needed the confirmation I made a list of animal cruelty free cosmetic brands. There is already a long list but I’m going to name the brands that I use.
