Unilever Acquires Cruelty-Free Beauty Brand Tatcha for a Reported $500 Million 
_
Tatcha is still considered to be cruelty-free (as of right now and we'll be closely monitoring any updates to their animal testing policies) however, Unilever is definitely NOT cruelty-free as their products/ingredients are tested on animals when required by law in 2019. 
_
For those of you who choose to boycott CF brands that are owned by a parent company that is not cruelty-free, then sadly Tatcha should be avoided. However, if you choose to support these CF brands and want to know which of Tatcha skincare products are also vegan, you can find a vegan product list below! 
_
Tatcha isn't a 100% vegan beauty brand however they do offer some vegan options πŸ’œ

Tatcha Vegan Products (2019):
❁ Camellia Gold Spun Lip Balm
❁ Cherry Blossom Lip Balm
❁ Gentle Rice Enzyme Powder
❁ Gold Camellia Beauty Oil
❁ One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil
❁ Red Camellia Lip Balm
❁ The Essence
❁ The Water Cream

Complete List of 100% Vegan Makeup & Skincare Brands

This post may contain affiliate links.

LAST UPDATED: JUNE 8, 2019

A complete and updated list of 100% Vegan beauty brands!

What does it mean to be on this Vegan list?

First, companies must agree to never test their products or ingredients on animals and that includes refraining from selling their products in mainland China where compulsory animal testing is required for all imported cosmetics. Secondly, brands included on this list must only offer vegan products! Which means absolutely no animal ingredients or by-products are used —in any of their products!

Some cruelty-free brands make claims that none of their products or ingredients are tested on animals and that most of their products are vegan with a few exceptions of products that contain beeswax, honey, or animal hair in their makeup brushes.

Don’t get me wrong – it’s great they have vegan options, but there are some other brands that make sure 100% of their products are entirely vegan. These 100% vegan beauty brands are the ones that we want to especially highlight in this list.

Why support these Vegan brands?

If given the option, I’d rather buy from a company that is 100% vegan over a brand claiming, “90% of our products are vegan” and that’s because (1) My support proves that consumers care and see value in an all-vegan company and (2) it proves to the rest of the world that running a 100% vegan company is totally sustainable and profitable!

I often praise other beauty brands for offering a list of vegan products but the brands on this list are all 100% vegan and intend to always be vegan! I hope with this list, you’ll get to discover from all the awesome and growing vegan makeup and beauty brands!

100% Vegan Makeup

Some makeup brands claim to be cruelty-free where none of their products or ingredients are tested on animals, however, their products may contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products. Some common animal products found in makeup include carmine, beeswax, pearl powder, animal-derived fatty acids, and animal hair used for makeup brushes. The following vegan makeup brands do not test on animals and do not use any animal-derived ingredients or by-products in any of their products.


100% Vegan Skincare Brands

Some skincare brands claim to be cruelty-free where none of their products or ingredients are tested on animals, however, their products may contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products. Some animal products commonly found in skincare include lanolin, beeswax, royal jelly, honey, collagen, silk amino acids, snail mucin, milk-derivatives, and squalene from fish liver oil.

Below is a list of vegan skincare brands that do not test on animals and do not use animal-derived ingredients or by-products in any of their products. Brands listed here offer a range of skincare products for face & body, personal care products, and bath & body care products.


100% Vegan Hair Care Brands

Some hair care brands claim to be cruelty-free where none of their products or ingredients are tested on animals, however, their products may contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products. Some common animal ingredients found in hair care products include keratin, biotin and silk amino acids.

Below is a list of vegan hair care brands that do not test on animals and do not use animal-derived ingredients or by-products in any of their products. Brands listed here offer a range of hair products from shampoo, conditioners, hair treatments, styling products, hair dye, and hair accessories.


100% Vegan Nail Polish Brands

Some nail polish brands claim to be cruelty-free where none of their products or ingredients are tested on animals, however, their products may contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products. Some common animal ingredients found in nail polish and nail care products include guanine, shellac, pearl-derivatives, keratin, and biotin.

Below is a list of nail polish brands that do not test on animals and do not use animal-derived ingredients or by-products in any of their products.


100% Vegan Brushes & Tools

Some makeup brush brands claim to be “cruelty-free” yet use natural animal hair bristles for their brushes. Although companies claim this process is done in a cruelty-free manner and the animals are not harmed, we do not support the practice of taking an animals’ fur in order to make makeup brushes. Below is a list of vegan makeup brush brands that agree with us by only offering makeup brushes made with synthetic bristles.


100% Vegan Beauty Boxes

Discover new cruelty-free and vegan beauty products by subscribing to one of the following monthly or quarterly beauty boxes! Some cruelty-free beauty boxes only include products from brands that don’t test on animals and are not always vegan. However, this list of vegan beauty boxes makes sure to only and always include products that are both not tested on animals and don’t contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products!


100% Vegan Fragrance Brands

The following vegan fragrance brands do not test on animals and do not use any animal-derived ingredients or by-products in their perfumes or any of their other products.

    Hi, I was wondering if you could make a list of products that are cruelty free? Thank youu (your blog is super useful btw I0m in love with it)

    Hai..may i know is Tarte skincare & make up & the marajuca oil 100% vegan?? Coz their products not in the list..tq in advance?

    • Vicky Ly
      August 14, 2017

      Heya Erin! Only some of Tarte products are considered vegan.

      You can find out which ones are vegan here: http://tartecosmetics.com/tarte-shop-vegan-cosmetics

      Since not all of Tarte products are vegan, I’m unable to include them to this list.

      This list only includes brands that carry 100% vegan products, hopefully one day Tarte will make ALL of their products vegan! =)

    I can’t believe how FEW brands are on this list! πŸ™ I clearly need to make alot of changes to what’s in my bathroom. Thanks for the beautiful blog <3

      July 2, 2017

      Thankfully, it’s a growing list!! I verify each brand’s animal testing policy so it takes a bit of time to get on this list but I hope more and more companies will realize how important it is to keep animals out of our cosmetic products =)

  • Lily

    Hey, great list thank you so much for making it !

    I was just wondering if any of the brands listed here are owned by parent companies that are not vegan or cruelty-free ?

    thanks again (:

    • Vicky Ly
      June 28, 2017

      Hey Lily!

      Nope! None of these brands on this list are owned by a parent company that tests on animals =)

      • Megan

        This is exactly what I was looking for! This is an amazing list. Im trying to stay away from those bad parent companies too! I was also curious if this was an all natural list, or of you had a list like this that was 100% vegan and all natural?

  • Anna
    June 26, 2017

    Great list, thank you!

    Is there a reason why Little Ondine isn’t on it? I was through there FAQ I found your website (since they referred to your guide on China’s Animal Testing Laws).

    • Vicky Ly
      June 26, 2017

      oh wow, I had no idea they referenced my article on their website! haha I sent them an email to verify their animal testing policy. I’ll update this list if everything checks out, if not then I’ll reply back to this comment with an explanation! Thanks for letting me know =)

    Are morphe eyeshadow palettes vegan ?

    • Vicky Ly
      June 13, 2017

      Sadly No, most of their eyeshadow palettes contain lanolin and therefore are not vegan.

  • Hope S Kordalski

    I thought ELF and L.A. colors were vegan brands?

    • Vicky Ly
      May 29, 2017

      some of ELF’s old makeup brushes that are still available in stores uses animal hair and I haven’t received confirmation on whether their new skincare products are vegan.

      I also haven’t received any information about whether LA Colors products are vegan. I know that the brand is certified cruelty-free by PETA but they don’t have them listed as being a Vegan Company.

  • Sadies Ariel
    May 27, 2017

    Does this list also make the specification that they do not sell in countries requiring animal testing (such as China?)
    Also, why is LimeCrime not on this list? I’ve done extensive research on them and spoken to them numerous times (I did my senior project on them) and they meet all of the criteria and beyond.

    • Vicky Ly
      May 29, 2017

      I’ve just added Lime Crime to this list! =)

      And if any of these brands sell in stores in Mainland China then I wouldn’t consider them to be cruelty-free or vegan. So none of these vegan brands are selling in countries that require animal testing!

  • Ann

    Thank you for this list! It’s super helpful πŸ™‚

    I noticed that Manic Panic isn’t in your list of 100% vegan hair products. Do they really use animal by-product in their hair dyes? I find it disappointing if they do since they’ve always advertised their products as being vegan πŸ™

    • Vicky Ly
      June 15, 2017

      Hi Ann,
      I just received confirmation from Manic Panic and you don’t have to worry, all of their hair dyes are vegan! But unfortunately I can’t add them to this list because some of the other products they carry are not vegan like their lipsticks and other makeup products!
