Being a vegetarian doesn't just mean that I don’t eat meat, I also focus on avoiding products that are tested on animals or have animal byproducts.  I find it difficult to maintain a cruelty free lifestyle because many companies are continually changing their product protocols. I constantly check to make sure that my favorite brands are still PETA approved.


I don’t believe that animals should have to suffer for the vanity of human beings.  Animals should not be locked up in small cages and have different chemicals rubbed into their eyes or put in their throats.  There is no need to harm innocent animals for the sake of “safe cosmetics.”  I think animal testing is horrific and don’t stand for it.



PETA maintains a list of companies that do test on animals and ones that do not.  You can find the list here.  PETA also adds a “V” to companies that are cruelty-free and vegan, if you are concerned about that too.  Here is a brief list of common beauty companies that DO NOT test on animals and ones that DO.

Do Not Test on Animals-

Aveda (Estee Lauder)
Bare Escentuals
CO Bigelow
E.L.F. Cosmetics
FACE Atelier
LUSH
M.A.C.
Paul Mitchell
Physicians Formula
Sonia Kashuk
Tarte Cosmetics
The Body Shop
Too Faced
Victoria Secret
Wet n Wild
Urban Decay
Yes to Carrots

Do Test on Animals-

Almay (Revlon)
Aquafresh
Aussie
Aveeno
Avon Products
Chapstick
Clairol
Clearasil
Dove
Herbal Essence
L’Oreal
Olay
Redken

DISCLAIMER- Like I said before, companies are constantly changing their protocols and ways of production, this is the information may change with time.



I think that knowing which companies are cruelty free is very important in living a life of kindness.  If you are thinking about going cruelty-free, I challenge you to start today.

Go Green and Stay Keen,
