List of Black-Owned Cruelty-Free Beauty Brands

Posted on 3 min read

In this cruelty-free shopping guide, we’re sharing a working list of Black-owned cruelty-free beauty brands.

Before creating this list, we definitely did not have enough cruelty-free & vegan beauty brands that represent the Black community and that was not OK. We know we can and must do better, starting with this list of Black-owned cruelty-free beauty brands to support.

By supporting and continuing to buy from more Black-owned businesses, you are showing up as an ally and supporting actual communities where injustice occurs. Let’s use our purchasing power as a voice to drive change in this world. ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿

List of Black-Owned Cruelty-Free Beauty Brands

All of the brands listed below are cruelty-free and don’t test any of their products, ingredients, or formulations on animals, anywhere in the world and have met all of the criteria in our Cruelty-Free Checklist.

In addition, all brands are either 100% vegan or offer some vegan products that don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.

Black-Owned Cruelty-Free Makeup

Black-Owned Cruelty-Free Skincare

Black-Owned Cruelty-Free Body & Personal Care

Black-Owned Cruelty-Free Hair Care

Black-Owned Cruelty-Free Nail Polish


There are over 100+ brands I am still waiting to hear back from and receive confirmation about their cruelty-free and vegan status including Juvia’s Place, Beauty Bakerie, UOMA Beauty, IMAN Cosmetics, and many more.

I will continue to update and add to this list when more information becomes available.

You can also email me to request any Black-owned beauty brands you’d like us to verify and list.
