BEST CRUELTY FREE AND ETHICAL BEAUTY BRANDS: THE MASTER LIST

Cruelty-free Ethical Beauty Brands that are also sustainable - The Master List

Want to keep track of all the truly cruelty-free, ethical and sustainable beauty brands out there?!

We’ll, you’ve come to the right place!

There are a few sites on the inter webs that do a really good job of keeping updated lists on cruelty free brands, like Cruelty Free Kitty and Ethical Elephant.

Here at Sustainable Jungle, our approach to sustainable beauty is to look for brands and products that are:

We know it’s tall order and believe us, it takes a fair bit of time to find these brands to meet all or most criteria! Especially since we reach out to each of the brands listed below (unless they’ve specifically clarified their approach on their website). We do this to confirm their policies and practices so there’s no doubting their ethical claims.

The list below is also our way of tracking these brands so we have one solid resource which has it all.

We hope this is a helpful resource for choosing brands and products that are the best for you, animals and the environment.
