More than 5,000 beauty companies have joined PETA’s Global Beauty Without Bunnies program since it began. There are so many great brands to choose from, but we’re highlighting a few that we know you’ll love. These 15 companies are cruelty-free, which means they don’t use any animal-derived ingredients in their products or test on animals.
Animal test–free companies can sign up with the program to be included in our Global Beauty Without Bunnies database, which is the ultimate resource for conscientious shoppers. Simply type a company’s name in the search field to see whether it’s naughty or nice to animals.
Companies that join can also proudly display one of these logos on their products:
“Animal test–free” means that products were created without cruel, archaic tests on animals. Vegan products are defined as being free of animal-derived ingredients. More than 500 companies in our database are 100% vegan!
Here’s a taste of just a few of the fantastic cruelty-free beauty brands in our database:
