Cruelty-Free Brand List
Why are some brands listed on the Logical Harmony Brands to Avoid list, but other sites say that they are cruelty-free?
I reach out to every company listed before adding a brand to any list. In order to list them as a trusted brand, I make sure that the company or a representative of the company can completely answer all of my specific questions in a clear manner. If I am unable to get a clear response, the brand is listed as a grey area brand.
Unfortunately, brands are not always consistent in their responses or language. Please note that I cannot speak for the process of any other blog, website, or organization.
How does Logical Harmony define “cruelty-free”?
There is currently no legal definition of the term “cruelty-free”, so it can mean different things to different people. I use “cruelty-free” to say that a brand is not testing on animals, does not use any ingredients that have been tested on animals, and is not testing on animals when required by law. A brand can be cruelty-free and still use animal ingredients. All brands mentioned on Logical Harmony are cruelty-free.
I require that brands confirm that there is no animal testing by any party:
- On ingredients used to make the products
- On products during production
- On the finished products
- As required by law
How does Logical Harmony define “vegan”?
Vegan means that there are no animal ingredients or animal bi-products in the products. All products featured on Logical Harmony are vegan and from cruelty-free brands.
A brand I love isn’t included! How can I suggest them?
A brand has “not tested on animals” printed on their packaging or states “we are cruelty-free” on their FAQ. Why are they on the Grey Area or Brands to Avoid list?
These specific terms are not only unregulated but also do not give any consumer insight into the larger picture of a brands animal testing stance. Brands who state that they are cruelty-free or have “not tested on animals” on their packaging but are on the Grey Area or Brands to Avoid list either could not give clear answers or gave answers to indicate that animal testing is occurring on their products in some way.
