Keeping track of cruelty-free brands can be a challenge! It seems like it’s a constantly changing landscape and brands can change their status. Plus, there are so many new brands you may not have heard of before. In an effort to make it easier for you to know what changes are happening, we publish an update to let you easily see what brands have been added to the list!
What will be included in these updates? Brands that have recently been added to the cruelty-free list, the grey area list, and the brands to avoid list. An explanation of what being added to each list means is included below. Make sure to check out the full Cruelty-Free Brand List for even more cruelty-free brands!
Brands that have recently been added to the pending brands list will no longer be included in these updates. The Pending Brands list will still be kept up to date, but this will make it easier for people to find out the most important information and allow us to add a large number of pending brands each month in a more efficient manner. The Pending Brands list is currently going through a large update to make it more organized and easier to use. We are also doing a full audit to try and get as many brands as possible onto other lists.

New Grey Area Brands
Being on this list does not mean that these brands test on animals, but it also doesn’t necessarily mean that they are cruelty-free either. It means that we require additional information in order to add these brands to the cruelty-free section of the list. In these cases, Logical Harmony has asked these brands for that additional information or clarification about their cruelty-free status but has not received it.
- Fenty Beauty (Was unable to provide a clear statement on animal testing practices, their FAQ page is not detailed enough to be sure of their cruelty-free status, requests for clarification have not been responded to)
New Brands to Avoid
These brands have a stance on animal testing that Logical Harmony is not comfortable with. This could mean that they test on animals, take part in required by law animal testing, work with 3rd parties or suppliers who test on animals, or that they do not ask or require their ingredient suppliers be cruelty-free. This can also mean that these brands will not provide any sort of animal testing statement about their current practices and policies. These brands are best to avoid because animal testing may be involved at some point.
- Cheer (tests on animals when required by law)
- Eve Lom (tests on animals when required by law)
Logical Harmony has reached out to these brands at least seven days ago about their cruelty-free status and has yet to receive a response. We are constantly reaching out to brands but understand that it may take them longer than 7 days to get back to us.
