The 2,016th beauty company has joined PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies Program, officially confirming that 2016 is #TheYearOfVegan.

Cruelty-free companies can sign up with the program to be included in our cruelty-free database, which is the ultimate resource for conscientious shoppers. Simply type a company name in the search field to see whether the company is naughty or nice to animals.

Companies can also proudly display one of these logos on their products:

“Cruelty-free” means that products were created without cruel, archaic testing on animals. Vegan products are defined as being cruelty-free as well as free of animal-derived ingredients. More than 500 companies in our database are 100 percent vegan!

Here’s a taste of some of the fantastic cruelty-free beauty brands in our database:

1. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC)

OCC is an entirely vegan company, best known for its liquid lipstick, Lip Tar.

2. Pacifica

This company offers skincare, makeup, and body products and is 100 percent vegan.

3. Urban Decay

We love that Urban Decay’s website has a vegan section and a terrific variety of colors and shades to match all skin tones.

4. Aveda

Aveda products, which incorporate natural botanicals, are available at Aveda salons.

5. e.l.f. cosmetics

We love e.l.f’s moisturizing lipstick, which is vegan and comes in 17 shades.

6. Alba Botanica

Alba’s very emollient sunscreen is a great vegan product with no synthetic fragrance.

7. Tarte Cosmetics

If you search for “vegan” on Tarte’s website, it will pull up many items, all of which are clearly marked with a green “vegan-friendly” logo. Check out the tarteist™ lash paint mascara, for example.

The Body Shop is a worldwide favorite that carries many vegan products, such as the Oils of Life™ Intensely Revitalizing Essence Lotion.

We adore products like Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Cream, which provides smooth, lightweight coverage and SPF protection. Also, the packaging is just the cutest!

13. Yes to Carrots

Have you said Yes to Cucumbers, Yes to Tomatoes, or Yes to Blueberries? Each collection from this company uses a specific vegetable or fruit to condition hair or skin. We especially love the cooling cucumber facial towelettes.

Apply Smashbox’s Photo Finish Foundation Primer under your foundation for a smoother look.

NYX is sold at many drugstores and Target stores. Many of its products are entirely vegan—just check the label to make sure.
