DID YA HEAR? LUSH recently announced it will be removing eggs from all its beauty products! πŸ₯šπŸš«
"All of our products will now officially be egg-free. But never fear, your fave Lush goodies will be as effective as ever thanks to some egg-citing ingredient replacements."
LUSH is cruelty-free with mostly vegan products, but some of their beauty products still contain some animal by-products like lanolin, honey, and/or milk. Hopefully, they're working on becoming a 100% vegan brand in the near future! πŸ™πŸ»πŸ€žπŸ»

Which Brands at Sephora are Cruelty-Free or Tested on Animals?

This post may contain affiliate links.

Shopping at Sephora but wondering which brands are cruelty-free and not tested on animals? Well you’ve come to the right place because I went through Sephora’s entire brand directory list of over 300+ brands and did the research to find out which brands are cruelty-free or not!

In this list, you’ll be able to figure out which brands, that are available at Sephora, test or do not test on animals. To keep things simple, I’ve noted each brand accordingly:

This brand is not cruelty-free This brand is not cruelty-free; tested on animals

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

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

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

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

Don’t see a brand listed here? It might be because I’m still waiting to hear back from them! Check the list at the very bottom of this post to see if the brand you’re looking for is on my pending list at the very bottom of this page.

    Hi, I really appreciate the effort you put on this list. I was wondering if you have any information regarding the cruelty free status of Viseart or Dominique Cosmetics. Thank you.

      Hey Diana,
      Unfortunately, I haven’t heard back from both Viseart and Dominique Cosmetics. I’ve repeatedly tried reaching out to them in the past couple years to verify their animal testing policies but neither brands have responded =(

    I see a couple people confused by the Laura Mercier skull rating, and no clarification has been provided by you yet on that. Could you please explain that rating? Their website states “Laura Mercier is committed to the elimination of animal testing and avoiding animal products. We are equally committed to consumer health and safety, and bringing to market products that comply with applicable regulations in every country in which our products are sold. While our products are not vegan, we do not conduct animal testing on our products or ingredients, nor ask others to test on our behalf. We evaluate the safety of our finished products with alternate methods and in clinical settings on volunteer panels.”

      Hi Jessica,
      I had reached out to Laura Mercier many times but hadn’t received a response back so that’s why there were no updates to their cruelty-free status. When I first published this list, Laura Mercier’s animal testing policy was unclear since being acquired by Shiseido, a corporation that DOES test on animals.

      I finally got a response back from Laura Mercier and received a similar response to what they have already stated on their website with the addition that their products are not sold in mainland China or any other country that requires animal testing.

      Their status seemed promising but they didn’t address whether their manufacturers or raw material suppliers test on animals and so, I’ve now classified Laura Mercier with a Question Mark rating which means, I received a response from this brand but am not 100% satisfied with the information provided to me to claim if they’re cruelty-free or not.

      Hope that helps to clear things up, please let me know if you have any other questions!

      I don’t know for sure but my guess would be that they their products are sold in mainland China which requires animal testing. From some of my research a lot of companies who claim to be cruelty free aren’t actually because they sell to mainland China. I could be wrong with Laura Mercier though.

    Do you know son and park product beauty water vegan or no ? Please answer my question please

      Hi Vima,

      I haven’t been able to get a clear answer from Son & Park in regards to their animal testing policy. They claim that their Beauty Water, in particular, is not tested on animals however they have told me that they DO sell their products to China (where animal testing is required by law for all imported cosmetics) and that they do not have any proof that their products are not tested on animals.

      This is what they told me,

      “All we can confirm you is that we don’t attend animal testing.

      Even if we let our customers be noted not to proceed any of the testing, we do not have any proof for it.”

      So with that being said, as of right now, we wouldn’t consider Son & Park to be a cruelty-free or vegan brand and that’s why they’re marked as NOT cruelty-free.

    Clinique is under the list of brands which test on animals. However, their staff everywhere claims that they do not test on animals. Are they misleading customers ?

    • Vicky Ly
      April 9, 2019

      Hey Tanisha,

      Unfortunately, Clinique is not considered cruelty-free because their products/ingredients are tested on animals when required by law. Clinique products are sold in-stores in Mainland China, where all imported cosmetics are required by law to be tested on animals. I have a post explaining Clinique’s animal testing policy here >> https://ethicalelephant.com/does-clinique-test-on-animals/

      Clinique and their staff can claim that THEY do not test on animals but they’re having OTHERS do it for them.

      In order for Clinique to sell and register their products in Mainland China, they are consenting and allowing the Chinese government to test their products/ingredients/formulations on animals FOR THEM. So, in my opinion, they are totally misleading customers into believing they are cruelty-free when they’re not.
