Cruelty-Free Brands at Sephora (Updated for 2020!)

Cruelty-Free Brands at Sephora

This list of cruelty-free brands at Sephora will help make shopping easier for you!

Finding cruelty-free brands at Sephora is a struggle for many. For many consumers, big stores like Sephora are one of the main places where they purchase cosmetics, skincare, and hair care. Being aware of the cruelty-free brands at Sephora can be a challenge. Sephora carries so many brands and it can be a little overwhelming to figure out which are cruelty-free and which are not.

If you’re looking for cruelty-free makeup, you can use this guide to shop online, download the list of cruelty-free brands at Sephora to your phone, or even print the list of cruelty-free brands at Sephora to take with you into the store.

Looking for different cruelty-free shopping guides? I also have them for Ulta, Nordstrom, Cult Beauty, Beauty Bay, and tons of other stores.

Best selling cruelty-free products at Sephora:

This is the most recent update of a post originally published on Logical Harmony on December 19, 2016. It was last updated on July 31, 2020.

All of the brands listed here are cruelty-free and are also sold at Sephora. They are free of any animal testing and all of them have vegan options. Just as with the Cruelty-Free Brand List, it is noted next to a brand if they are owned by a company that tests on animals. It is also noted if they not only a cruelty-free brand but are also a 100% vegan brand.

Cruelty-Free Brands at Sephora:


Sephora does carry cruelty-free brands and, for those who shop there, I think that it is important for them to know which brands are the best to support. Please note that the house line of cosmetics sold at Sephora is not cruelty-free. Sephora does have stores in China, where animal testing is required by law. For those who decide to not purchase items from Sephora, you can always go into the store to look at the cruelty-free brands and cruelty-free products in person, take home samples, and then order online directly from the brand itself.

Sadly, the list of brands that are not cruelty-free is long. If you are looking to purchase only cruelty-free brands at Sephora, you should avoid the following brands: Benefit Cosmetics, Bobbi Brown, Caudalie, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Glamglow, Sephora Collection, and more. Check out the brands to avoid list to view other brands that are not cruelty-free.

    There is a big difference between “anti-cruelty’ and vegan. Anti cruelty means it hasn’t been tested on animals. Vegan mean that it contains no animal products. Most supposed anti-cruelty products contain beef tallow amongst other ingredients, you would be surprised how many. 99% soaps, laundry soap, dish soap and cosmetics contains animal products. The colour Carmine is made from the the dried bodies of a female bug. Carmine is used in 99% products that state it is cruelty-free. It’s brilliant red used in cosmetics as well as paint/dyes.

    • Reply Tashina Combs Tuesday - December 19, 2017 at 9:02 pm

    When a company, like Too Faced or Tarte is bought out by parent companies who test on animals, does it change their practices in animal testing? I’m new to the Cruelty Free world and I am trying to understand the Parent company thing. Or is it because the money goes into funding the animal testing of their other brands?

    Thanks.

    • Reply Tashina Combs Wednesday - March 15, 2017 at 9:37 am

      Hi Ashley,

      It depends. In the examples of Too Faced and Tarte, their policies and practices did not change. They are still cruelty-free. When some brands are purchased, their policies do change. It can be different for each company.

  • Reply Kate Sunday - March 12, 2017 at 2:40 pm

    Hi there,

    What exactly does it mean when a company states they only test on animals when it is “required by law”?

    Thanks!

    • Reply Tashina Combs Sunday - March 12, 2017 at 2:42 pm

      It could be a couple of things – that they use ingredients that are required to be tested, are creating formulations that are required to be tested, or are selling in markets that require testing on the finished products.

  • Reply Debra Kelly Friday - March 10, 2017 at 1:25 pm

      • Reply Erin Monday - February 27, 2017 at 7:13 pm

        I saw that they no longer guarantee that their suppliers are cruelty-free–so they don’t personally test but they don’t ensure that their ingredients haven’t been tested on animals. They’ve been really quiet on it so it hasn’t gotten a lot of attention.

        • Reply Tashina Combs Monday - February 27, 2017 at 7:48 pm

          Hi Erin,

          I talked to them about this specifically and they have assured me nothing about their stance or requirements of their suppliers have changed. They do still require that their ingredient suppliers be cruelty-free. I’ve given them feedback on the customer service response a few people have received and let them know it’s confusing.

  • Reply Leti Friday - February 10, 2017 at 10:30 am

      Marc Jacobs Beauty is on the Brands to Avoid list. They have told myself and other cruelty-free bloggers (Phyrra and My Beauty Bunny) that the ingredients they use may be tested on animals. They have also told me that they test when required by law. I don’t think I have reached out to Kate Somerville before, but I’ll do that now!

    Is this current? I’m wondering why Benefit isn’t listed. From their site: “Benefit does not test our products on animals.

    Since 1989, the Perfumes & Cosmetics companies of LVMH group (including Benefit Cosmetics) have not performed any tests on animals for our products – this was implemented long before the 2013 official ban set by the European Union.

    We are deeply committed to the elimination of animal testing. We’re playing a leading role in developing alternative methods through our support of the “Fund for Alternatives to Animal Testing” in the United States. We also actively participate in validation studies of new alternative tests in the framework of the European cosmetics association, Cosmetics Europe. We are one of only a few companies to have invested in creating our own internal department to test raw materials and ingredients to further ensure the quality of our products and the satisfaction of our customers, which is our top priority.

    We are hopeful that alternative testing methods will be adopted worldwide and we will see an end to animal testing.”

      Hi Chloe,

      I’ve talked to beautyblender about this. What is sold in China are only the products of theirs that do not require animal testing. Since they don’t make cosmetics, it’s easier for them to work within the limitations of the laws there. The sponges aren’t tested on animals, and not all of their cleansers are available there. They are still cruelty-free and assured me that they would not bring items into China that would be required to be tested on animals. I hope this helps!

    Hi Tashina, out of curiosity, is there a particular reason that brands with parent companies that do test (Kat Von D, Bare Minerals, etc) are promoted on logical harmony? I’m a fan of checking for information regarding brands here (Thank you for providing so many people with such valuable information!), and recall that after Tarte was acquired by a parent company that tests, you no longer supported them.

    • Reply Tashina Combs Sunday - February 14, 2016 at 1:18 pm

      Hi Mariana,

      Those brands are included in some lists, such as this one, so that people can find brands that work for them. I would rather someone buy from a cruelty free brand with a parent company who tests, than to buy a cruelty free brand directly. I don’t promote those brands outside of these lists. While I do talk about Kat Von D Beauty, I think it’s important to note that her parent company is cruelty free, but some of the KVD beauty sister companies are not.

    While Hourglass and Urban Decay have a FEW and yes I said few (only maybe a handful of their products are actually vegan AND cruelty free) the rest are completely not, within the two brands. It is very unfortunate. Even if it claims it is vegan it does not also mean that they were not tested on animals! Please do lots of research! Typically smaller more independent brands have safer ingredients and are also vegan AND cruelty free but they will not be in such broad corporate stores like Sephora, Ulta, department stores, etc.

    • Reply Tashina Combs Sunday - August 2, 2015 at 9:55 am

      Exactly. Stating a product is vegan doesn’t mean the brand is cruelty free. This is why I do such extensive research into brands and require documentation in order to verify their cruelty free status. 🙂

      • Reply Kathryn Wednesday - December 2, 2015 at 8:34 pm

        I’m confused…what products are okay to use then from Hourglass & UD? And, if the brand is not 100% cruelty free does it move to the avoid list?

        • Reply Tashina Combs Sunday - December 6, 2015 at 4:58 pm

          Hi Kathryn,

          Hourglass is cruelty free with vegan options. So is Urban Decay, but they are owned by a parent company who does test on animals. If a brand takes part in any animal testing they are added to the Brands to Avoid list. I would not promote a brand as cruelty free if they were testing on animals in any way. 🙂 The products seem on Logical Harmony are all from cruelty free brands and the products are also free of animal ingredients.

    This site has my heart. I love that you point out who Sephora’s parent company is and how it’s much more helpful to use them only as a sampling point. You’re my go to for everything vegan/vegan beauty. Do not stop being awesome!

      Hi Ileah,

      Thanks for suggesting them! We have reached out to them and they will be added to the Pending Brands list. They will be included in future weekly update posts about the brands list. These updates are posted every Sunday. 🙂 Have a great day!

    There are a few brands not on your list that I am curious about:

    – Dr. Dennis Gross claims to be both cruelty free and vegan, they even have the vegan stamp on their packaging
    – Ren is one of the “natural” brands, and the rep told me that they are cruelty free, and that only two of their products have any animal ingredients (yogurt and honey)
    – Murad says on their packaing “tested on people, not animals” and on their website specifically states that they do not sell in china for this reason
    – The rep from Origins told me they do not animal test, and the boxes state no animal ingredients.
    – Amore Pacific also told me they don’t animal test.

    I would love to know if you’ve either confirmed any of this, or learned anything that says otherwise. Thanks!

      Correction regarding Murad – it wasn’t their website where I saw that statement, it was an email from the company on another blog.
