some cosmetics labeled as 'vegan' doesn't necessarily mean they're also cruelty-free.

How? the term '๐šŒ๐š›๐šž๐šŽ๐š•๐š๐šข-๐š๐š›๐šŽ๐šŽ' is generally used to imply the products and its ingredients were not tested on animals, whereas the term '๐šŸ๐šŽ๐š๐šŠ๐š—' is generally used to imply the products do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products (like carmine, beeswax, lanolin, honey, etc.)
.
๐“ท๐“ธ๐“ฝ๐“ฎ: I'm saying 'generally' here because this is how the cosmetic industry is generally using these two terms, that's not to say these are ideal or perfect definitions and tbh, if it were up to me, there wouldn't be a difference as almost all animal-derived ingredients cannot be obtained in a 'cruelty-free' manner, but I digress.

Cruelty-Free Brands at Ulta

This post may contain affiliate links.

Shopping at Ulta but wondering which brands are cruelty-free and not tested on animals? Well, youโ€™ve come to the right place because I went through Ultaโ€™s entire brand directory list of over 500+ brands and did the research to find out which brands are cruelty-free or not!

In the list below, youโ€™ll be able to figure out which brands, that are available at Ulta, test or do not test on animals. To keep things simple, Iโ€™ve noted each brand accordingly:

This brand is cruelty-free!

This brand is cruelty-free!; not tested on animals (may or may not be vegan)

This brand is cruelty-free!

This brand is cruelty-free but owned by a parent company that test on animals

This brand is not cruelty-free

This brand is not cruelty-free; tested on animals, company name is crossed out to make it clear this brand is not cruelty-free.

I received a response from this brand but am not 100% satisfied with the information provided to me to claim if theyโ€™re cruelty-free or not

100% Vegan – This brand only offers vegan products; no animal-derived ingredients or by-products

Donโ€™t see a brand listed here? It might be because Iโ€™m still waiting to hear back from them! Check the list at the very bottom of this post to see if the brand youโ€™re looking for is on my pending list.

    I’m curious about Young Living products. Last year they came out with ‘Savvy Minerals’ cosmetic line and claim it is cruelty-free. I’ve used some of thier products and it works very well. I really like it. However, when I pressed for answers regarding their recent entrance into the Chinese market, the representative gave me the ‘elevator speech’ that other companies often do. In the meantime, I have a TON of Savvy Minerals cosmetics sittig in my cupboeard and I’m out hundreds and hundreds of dollars.

    What, is anything, do you know about Young Living and Savvy Minerals?
    Thank you for this blog and for the information you provide.

    Hey! I love you blog and your lists are super helpful so thank you! I’m wondering when the last time this list was updated? I know that Body Shop is owned by a non cruelty free company now so I’m wondering if there’s any other brands on this list that may have changed recently? Thanks!

      Hi Sarah,
      This list is updated as frequently as possible. The Body Shop was previously owned by L’Oreal, a non-cruelty-free parent company that still test on animals. But in June 2017, L’Oreal sold The Body Shop to Natura Brasil, a cruelty-free parent company.

      So now I’m happy to say that The Body Shop is cruelty-free AND owned by a parent company that is also cruelty-free!! =)
