Many moons ago we covered cruelty-free makeup brands and I decided it was time to follow up on that with easily accessible skincare brands. Many of these are available in your high street drug and department stores, some can be found online. But if you look out for them you’ll see them and they are practically everywhere.
They all vary from cheap and cheerful, mid-range and high-end products to choose from. There’s something to suit everyone’s pocket and you’re guaranteed to like and at the very least, recognise, some or most of them.
Because I seem to like lists so much on this blog, I’ve spent a while digging around and putting something together so this won’t be a headache for all of those who are cruelty-free curious. So here you are, my list of cruelty free skincare brands!
Most of these brands are either PETA certified, Leaping Bunny approved or are not certified/affiliated but have a very clear and unmistakeable cruelty-free disclosure. If you’re ever unsure ping a tweet their way, an Instagram message or an email and make sure to ask the following:
- Do they test any of their ingredients or products on animals, or hire any third parties to do so on their behalf?
- Always make sure to ask if their products sold in China, where it is a legal requirement to test on animals and therefore nullifies their cruelty-free claim.
That’s how I like to get my information and I always do my best to check so I can be sure what I’m buying is in fact, cruelty-free.
To avoid overcomplicating things, I like to keep my skincare simple and the same goes for where I shop to get it. To be honest, most of what I use if from Superdrug’s own range, B. They’re vegan and they don’t cost me the Earth. My all-time favourite makeup remover is their Melting Cleanser Gel and they have different “phases” to suit your skin. It helps to take the guesswork out of what is good for you and if you should be buying this or that. It’s a simple system, and I like it.
As I come across new brands, since they always pop-up on my Instagram [ inserting shameless Instagram link ], I’ll continue to keep this list updated for you. And the same goes for if any go the other way and start testing or selling in China (because we don’t like that).
I really hope this has been useful for you and I’d love to hear if there are any brands I’ve missed, or if there are any that surprised you! Let me know in the comments.
Until next time! ♡
