Cruelty-Free & Vegan Brand List

13886404_10153904492337903_2188886654622068301_n.jpg

Below are lists of the cruelty-free and vegan brands of cosmetics & household products that I have come across and have used or still use. Things to remember, if a product/brand has the cruelty-free bunny logo this does NOT mean it is also vegan, it just means that the product hasn't been tested on animals. If you see the vegan logo or the product states it is vegan, you can be assured no animal derived ingredients are in the product. There are lots of companies who do not have this certification but are honest and keen to share with you that their products are cruelty-free and vegan. Some brands in my lists below do not have the official certifications but I have researched and spoken with the brands in depth and I am satisfied they are what they say they are. 

Key - CF = cruelty-free (certified cruelty-free or I know to be 100% cruelty-free) V= vegan (certified vegan or I know to be 100% vegan). I have also put a V if I know the brand does some vegan products (but I have noted to check on the individual products). I have also indicated if these products are available in stores as well as online.

There are quite a few online stores that are hubs for all things cruelty-free, vegan and eco friendly, below are the ones I use frequently. 

I did just want to add a brand that does AMAZING vegan certified candles, they do amazing scents (and the scent still comes through when lit unlike a lot of candles). Great for gifts or for you - Harpers Candles CF - V 

If products are't clearly labelled, companies are only too happy to give you the ingredients lists. I hope this is a good resource for those looking to swap their products over to cruelty-free or those just wanting to find new cruelty-free and vegan brands. 

Let me know if you find a cruelty-free and vegan brand I haven't got on the list!
