The Cruelty Free Brand List UK

I wrote this because, although there are some amazing cruelty free lists already (such as hereΒ andΒ here), I haven’t found a list that also covers small brands sold in British pharmacies and supermarkets. Below is a list of beauty brands that are easily available within the UK (and potentially the rest of the world depending on the brand) that you could find when popping into somewhere likeΒ Boots, Superdrug, John Lewis or just online.

This list is a work in progress which I hope to update whenever I learn of new brands and have new information. I have tried my best to make this list accurate but I’m not perfect so please let me know if you think there is something incorrect or let me know of anyone I should add! Unfortunately, I feel that when researching companies, it is a game of trust because you can never be sure how valid their claims are.

Brands checked as vegan are, of course, 100% vegan throughout all their products and the brands checked as vegan friendly have some products that are vegan but not all.

All the brands listed are cruelty free which means they do not test on animals or have stores in China (where by law, products must be tested before they can be sold to the public). However, I have also listed brands that are owned by parent companies that potentially performΒ animal testing and/or sell in China. I understand that many people have mixed opinions about still purchasing from the subsidiary so I have included them anyway.

Brands marked with an asterisk * are ones which are quite vague or there are mixed responses to whether they are completely cruelty free. I encourage you to do your own research so you can decide for yourself πŸ™‚

Happy shopping everyone!

I’m definitely bookmarking this page! I’m trying to go cruelty free with my entire lifestyle and it can often be unclear as to which brands are vegan/don’t test on animals/etc, thank you for this!
