You probably got here because you have a heart, conscience and care about where your makeup and beauty products come from, so you are naturally doing some research on makeup brands that don’t test on animals. 

We’d think that in 2019, not a single company tests their products on animals or has any ties with other companies that incurs on questionable practices of animal cruelty.

Status of make up brands that don’t test on animals:

Although every year more brands take action and commit to being part of the makeup brands that don’t test on animals and that are certified as cruelty free, there are still too many brands that still perform cruel and painful tests and procedures on animals.

As part of this abominable practices, animals skin and eyes are exposed to different formulas a company is testing before launching and releasing for public use. Many times, those chemicals produce such extreme burns and bad reactions that the poor animals end up losing their eyes after going through the torture of these so called “safe to use” tests.

From rats to bunnies, I think we can all agree that no living being should be submitted to such torture. Not in the name of beauty. Not on our name.

It’s 2019, and with technology as an ally, there is simply no need to perform those tests on animals in order to ensure that a producto is safe for humans.

We checked the most popular makeup brands. And made sure to add here the ones that are certified by PETA and/or Leaping Bunny,  which are the two organizations that have been lobbying for, and pressuring brands to join the movement for cruelty free beauty.  Both PETA and Leaping Bunny check not only for a brand’s ingredients and testing on their facilities, but they do extensive research on the production chain, to ensure that no questionable practices related to animal cruelty are performed by any of the brand’s partners in the chain of production.

The following brands have been certified by PETA or Leaping Bunny as makeup brands that don’t test on animals.

It’s important to know that a makeup and beauty company can have different brands and some brands might be cruelty free while others are not.  Each brand can (and usually has) a different chain of production and distribution. So this is something extremely important to keep in mind and not judge and trust the brands we buy from just because they are from the same company that produces other makeup brands that don’t test on animals.
