Cruelty Free Brand List Weekly Update
Did you know that the Cruelty Free and Vegan Brand List on Logical Harmony is updated at least once a week? In an effort to make it easier for you to know what changes are happening, we are now publishing a weekly update. This lets you easily see what brands have been added to the list!
What will be included in these updates? A list of brands that have recently been added to the cruelty free list, a list of brands that have been added to the grey area list, a list of brands that have been added to the brands to avoid list, and a list of pending brands.

New Cruelty Free Brands – These brands are completely free of animal testing. They also either have vegan options or, if noted by “100% vegan”, are currently a completely vegan line.
- AZATURE – 100% vegan!
New Grey Area Brands – Being on this list does not mean that these brands test on animals. It means that we require additional information in order to add these brands to the cruelty free section of the list and have asked these brands for that additional information or clarification.
- Demeter Fragrance Library
- Goddess Garden Organics
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.
New Pending Brands – 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.
Goddess Garden Organics e-mailed me that they don’t require verification from their suppliers, doesn’t that mean that they’re a brand to avoid? I received this response from them in June:
“No, we do not test on animals, nor do we hire a third party to test on animals.
No, none of our ingredients are tested on animals.
We don’t believe that any of our suppliers test on animals, but we don’t require verification that our suppliers don’t test.
We are required to test the water resistance claims and SPF ratings by the FDA. These tests are done via a third party, but not on animals (SPF and water resistance tests are done on people).”
Did they give you a different response?
I did receive a different response initially and spent some time trying to clear things up/get some clarity around specific things. This is why, in the most recent update, they were added to the Brands to Avoid list.
Have you heard back with regards to Topshop’s beauty range? I emailed them recently asking about it and got an email response back that basically just gave me a link to the Arcadia Groups website who own Topshop. On there they have a section about animal welfare but this is all in relation to leather and furs and not in relation to beauty products so it all appears unclear to me. I’m hoping you will have had some luck with them.
I haven’t heard back from them yet. 🙁 Keep checking the updates to see when/if I hear back.
