Cruelty-Free Brands at Sephora

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.

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. Unfortunately, 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. Their house brand is sold in these stores.

I know that because of this, some people want to avoid shopping at Sephora altogether. 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 or from Ulta.

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.

  1. There are several brands listed here that are not actually sold at Sephora, Pixi being one of them.

    1. Hi Emily! All of the brands on this list are sold in Sephora stores, but the brands do vary from region to region. Pixi, for example, is sold at Sephora in some regions but not all. I hope this helps to clarify.

  2. What about Fenty Beauty by Rihanna, they have a statement on their site saying they don’t test on animals

    1. Unfortunately their statement does leave room for animal testing and is not enough details for me to feel comfortable calling them cruelty-free.

  3. Thanks for the list; the animals and I appreciate it ?
    Dermalogica is cruelty free and available at Sephora. You have it listed on your Nordstrom list so thought you could list it here too.

  4. Have you reached out to Drunk Elephant? They are cruelty free and I would love to see them on your list to buy 🙂

    1. I have many times but have not received any response.

  5. 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.
