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.

  • BellaPierre
  • Beautycounter
  • DN-UNIK – 100% vegan! (Was previously on the Brands to Avoid list, but has stopped selling in China)
  • Girlactik Beauty – 100% vegan! (they have since been moved to the grey area list for omitting animal ingredients from the documents submitted to Logical Harmony)
  • Marcelle
  • The Argan Tree

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.

  • None!

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.

  • Banana Boat (Replied with a required by law animal testing stance)
  • Edge Shave Gel (Replied with a required by law animal testing stance)
  • Hawaiian Tropic (Replied with a required by law animal testing stance)
  • Playtex (Replied with a required by law animal testing stance)
  • Schick (Replied with a required by law animal testing stance)
  • Skintimate (Replied with a required by law animal testing stance)
  • Weleda (The brand states that they are cruelty free and sell some products in China that do not need to be tested on animals due to the recent changes in animal testing laws in China. For several months, I have been asking the brand for a list of these items to ensure that they are in fact items that do not need to be tested on animals. The chances of an international brand selling products in China that do not need to be tested on animals is very slim. The brand will not provide me with a list of the items being sold in China. Because of this, I feel that until the brand can be transparent with consumers it should be avoided.)

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.

  1. Do you have an update on Hawaiian tropic? I noticed their facial spf says reef safe and their website says no animal testing on products or ingredients and no sale in countries which do test.

  2. I was checking Hawaiian Tropic and saw somewhere that they’re cruelty-free and then found them here on the list on brands to avoid. Therefore, I had to recheck and found on PETA website that they do NOT test on animals.
    It also says on their website they’re PETA-certified (but I did check PETA’s website after all)

    But, now on some other website I saw they also listed HT as a brand that does test on animals, so I’m confused.

  3. Girl, first of all I am IMPRESSED with the work you have put into this. Honestly, thank you so much! You have made my transition into vegan/cruelty free products a thousand times easier. I’m also transitioning from getting my hair treated all the time to wearing it naturally curly and finding new hair care (that works) has been a nightmare. I’ve been hearing AMAZING things about one brand called CurlSmith, and they advertise vegan and cruelty free and organic/natural, etc. It seems like sites all across the board are vouching that this is true, but I wonder how many are going by what’s advertised.. you state on your site you actually reach out to the brands and look into their practices. I was wondering if you’d heard of the brand and know anything about it? I’d love to see it listed! Much love. 🙂

  4. Thank you so much for all you do! I think it’s great that you continually update your list and I always look forward to seeing new cruelty-free companies added. I feel confident that you’ve done the research and I can trust your list. I was so excited to see Marc Jacobs added recently! Thanks and keep up the great work!
