Color correcting (CC) cream is all the rage among today’s TikTok users, but not all CC creams going around the app are cruelty-free, including the Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment, which is made by a company that still pays for tests on animals in China.

In cosmetics tests, experimenters subject rabbits, mice, rats, guinea pigs, and other animals to extreme agony, as they drip chemicals into their eyes, smear products and ingredients onto their shaved skin, or force deadly amounts of substances down their throats before killing them and cutting their bodies apart. However, thanks to PETA’s Beauty Without Bunnies database, you can fill your #ForYou page with cruelty-free products from more than 4,800 cosmetics companies. Take the TikTok color-corrector trend to the next level with these vegan CC creams.

For a Daytime Glow: Pacifica Ultra CC Cream

Pacifica Ultra CC Cream is perfect for daytime use. It’s lightweight, easy to blend, and absorbs right into the skin for a natural glow. You can find this 100% vegan brand at Ulta, Target, and CVS.

For Photo-Ready Skin: Thrive Causemetics Buildable Blur CC Cream

If you need to look photo-ready, the totally vegan Thrive Causemetics has you covered with this skin-perfecting CC cream. It’s great for a smooth finish that shows up well in photos, and the coverage is easily buildable.

To Correct and Protect: Supergoop! CC Screen

This color corrector covers imperfections, evens out skin tone, and has SPF 50. You can cop this correcting cream at Sephora.

For Nourishing Benefits: Juice Beauty Stem Cellular CC Cream

Fortified with plant-derived ingredients such as aloe leaf juice and organic coconut oil, the Juice Beauty Stem Cellular CC Cream leaves a radiant finish while nourishing the skin. You can find it at Ulta.

For Noncakey Coverage: Physicians Formula Super CC Cream

With invisible color-correcting pigments, this CC cream smooths out imperfections, such as dark circles, blemishes, redness, and age spots, without looking heavy or cakey.


Before you jump on the CC cream bandwagon, remember that cruelty has no place in beauty trends. Rabbits are sensitive animals who purr when they’re happy, and they don’t deserve to be exploited for cosmetics. If you want to spread the love for vegan cosmetics on your #ForYou page, check out our Beauty Without Bunnies database to see which companies don’t test on animals!
