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.

    Hello!

    Does anyone know if β€œClean” fragrances available at Sephora are cruelty free and vegan friendly? Thank you!

  • Emily
    March 11, 2018

    Hi, Vicky! Firstly, thank you so much for making this list. It can definitely be an inconvenience to ensure that all the different cosmetics I buy are cruelty-free, but the sacrifice is absolutely worth it. I wanted to try out Huda Beauty’s makeup, but as I was researching whether or not they were cruelty-free, I found that they sell mink fur false eyelashes. The real mink falsies aren’t available on Sephora (they’re on the brand website). By technicality Huda can still call its makeup cruelty-free, since they apparently don’t test their products on animals. But I hope you’ll agree that any company involved in fur trades (even if they try to insist that the fur is cruelty-free *eye roll*) doesn’t deserve any cruelty-free credit at all. If your own research gets you the same results that mine did, please change Huda Beauty’s status on this list, or at least add a note that the brand does sell real fur products.

    DevaCurl is cruelty free.

      Hey Michelle,
      I received a response from DevaCurl that was a little unclear and ambiguous which is why I marked them as being not cruelty-free but I just changed their status to a question mark as it’s not really clear if they do or do not test on animals.

      DevaCurl products may or may not be tested on animals when required by law.

      Phyrra has an amazing post on her site where she walks us through her response from DevaCurl.. I received a somewhat similar response from them recently. Read it here: https://phyrra.net/is-devacurl-cruelty-free.html

    Hey Vicky! Quick question! Why is Deva Curl marked on your list as being not cruelty free? Almost all of their products have the PETA certified cruelty free bunny logo on them.

    Thanks!!!

    I’m not sure why but it seemed like there were quite a few of the 100% vegan options that came up as “page not found” and were no longer appearing in their list, bummer! Also, have you heard anything about the Kat Von D mascara? Im having trouble finding that as well.

    • Vicky Ly
      January 13, 2018

      Hmm.. This list is from the Sephora’s US website. I know that as a Canadian resident, my browser will sometimes automatically redirect me to Sephora Canada’s website and some of the brands aren’t available on their Canadian site. I used their US brand list because the majority of ethical elephant’s readers are based in the US!

      I also haven’t had any luck with finding Kat Von D’s mascara anywhere too! =( Sorry!

    Kora Organics js definitely cruelty free!!! I think it’s fully vegan too πŸ™‚

    • Vicky Ly
      January 12, 2018

      Kora Organics didn’t address my specific question about whether they verify with their raw material suppliers if they test on animals, so I’m not quite satisfied with their response to claim Kora as cruelty-free or not! It also should be noted that most of their products are vegan with the exception of their Vitamin Enhanced Lip Balm which contains beeswax and their Unscented Cleansing Bar which contains Goat’s Milk.

      Hope they’ll be able to clarify and address my inquiry about their raw material suppliers soon so that I can mark them as being CF! =)
