Go Green and Gorgeous With Cruelty-Free Cosmetics

Written by PETA | August 30, 2007

When PETA supporter, animal rights activist, and gorgeous vegan Alicia Silverstone announced that she would be releasing a line of eco-friendly, cruelty-free cosmetics, we were stoked. She’s been our homegirl in the fight for animal rights for years, and we’re happy to support her efforts. Plus, we love opportunities to encourage cruelty-free living. But it got us thinking: Why is it tough to find cosmetics that are good for animals and the environment?

Since we like to make kind shopping easy, we rounded up a batch of cruelty-free, eco-friendly products for you to try, including one of Silverstone’s new products. Check ’em out, then share with your friends so we can all pamper ourselves while being kind to animals and the Earth.


Vegan Green Beauty Products and Cosmetics by officialpeta 


1.      Each Peach Soap by LUSH

Get your citrus fix with the Each Peach massage bar, made with fruity avocado and mango kernel butters, cocoa butter, and shea butter. LUSH does not test on animals, and all its products are organic and handmade.

2.      Ageless Radiance Refining AHA Cleanser by Sevani Botanica

Eco-friendly, certified cruelty-free, and crafted with organic ingredients, this cleanser will leave your face and your conscience squeaky clean. Bonus: It can also double as a pore-refining antioxidant mask.

3.      Super Fruits Night Balm by 100% Pure 

Good skin care doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. This balm—made without harsh detergents, chemical preservatives, synthetic chemicals, or artificial fragrances—will ensure your beauty routine stays au naturel, while fruits and veggies give the balm a sweet scent for sweet dreams.

4.      Dirty Hair Cream by LUSH 

Fragranced with LUSH’s Dirty perfume, this hair cream smells sweetly of spearmint, tarragon, and a touch of salt air. Work it in, then work it (period).

5.      Irresistible Glow Facial Highlighter by Juice Beauty

Apply this highlighter from Juice Beauty’s Alicia Silverstone collection all over your face for a bright look that sings of summer. The peach-pink hue works for all skin types and will give you a kiss of sun without the sun damage.

6.      Maxim Organic Cotton Tampons 

Tampons are simple: cotton, applicator, wrapper, right? Not so fast. Plenty of tampons may seem like they’re comprised of cotton when they’re really a combo of wood pulp and synthetics. For 100-percent real, breathable organic cotton, check out Maxim Organic Cotton Tampons. Chlorine-free, hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, and biodegradable, these tampons are as good for your bod as they are for the Earth.

    Really? is it true about Yves Rocher selling to china and being tested on animals? i have been a loyal customer for 5 years…. 🙁

  • crystalcakes says:

    Sunny – just to let you know, apparently Yves Rocher will be selling their products to China.. meaning they will be animal tested. You may want to check out exact information/dates if this is something that concerns you.

  • Sunny says:
