Cruelty Free Beauty

High Street Stores Whose ‘Own Brand’ Cosmetics Are Cruelty Free.

When it comes to shopping the high street for cosmetics it’s hard to know which brands do or don’t test and when it comes to a companies own brands it can be even harder. It took me quite a long time to get all the answers, I spent hours online check and double checking their cruelty free policies, who was cruelty free certified who wasn’t. It was honestly exhausting but i finally got a list put together so I thought i would share it with you bunny loving lot.

Just State They Are Cruelty Free  – (either on their packaging or their website)

New Look

“We believe that animal testing for cosmetic purposes isn’t acceptable. We recognise that customer safety is of paramount importance, but also that this can be assured without the use of animal testing. We will not conduct, commission, or be party to any animal testing of cosmetic products, or ingredients, or raw materials. We will never knowingly purchase ingredients, formulations or products from suppliers who have conducted, commissioned or been party to animal testing for cosmetics purposes on these products after the company’s internal fixed cut-off date. Occasionally we may use animal derived ingredients in our cosmetic products, but these must be collected without harm to animals.”


Asda

“At Asda, we don’t test any of our own brand beauty, toiletry or household products on animals. In fact, we haven’t tested any of the ingredients in our cosmetics products on animals since 31st December 2009, or cleaning products since 31st of December 2015.” 


Aldi

“It is our policy in the UK and Ireland that all our own label cosmetics, toiletries and household products and their ingredients must not have been tested on animals after a fixed cut-off date of 11 March 2013 for cosmetics and toiletries and 01 January 2015 for household and cleaning products.  We are working with Cruelty Free International to certify all our products as not tested on animals, so look out for the leaping bunny on our products in a store near you!”


Next

“We do not support testing on animals for our own brand cosmetic products and do not carry out or commission such tests. We operate a fixed cut-off date of testing for ingredients in our products of 1998. We support the Fund for the Replacement of Animals in Medical Experimentation (FRAME) which seeks to end animal testing”.

 


 

Companies That Have Ambiguous Cruelty Free Claims

These companies I avoid as I personal don’t trust them. Their statments are very vague and don’t answer the questions like ingrediants testing or have very recent or rolling fixed cut off dates.

Tesco

‘We do not support testing on animals for cosmetic or household products, and do not carry out or commission such tests on our own-brand products or the ingredients they contain. Some products have ingredients which will have been tested on animals in the past. This is because we operate a fixed cut-off date for animal testing of ingredients, of 31 December 2007. We have set in place very robust systems to ensure that these cut-off dates have been met by all our suppliers to our own brand, where stipulated.’ BUT they sell to china who test by law.

Primark

Animal testing is not permitted on any Primark products. Any supplier making products for Primark which include materials from animals, such as wool, must commit to industry-recognised standards of animal welfare throughout our supply chain. BUT mentions nothing about ingredients testing, Very vague statement
Boots

We do not use animals to test our products, nor do we have animal testing conducted on our behalf or by anyone else. Instead, we ensure product safety through state-of-the-art testing methods on human volunteers. Lanolin is derived from sheep’s wool, and as such is an animal by-product. Of course the animal is completely unharmed. Thank you for your interest. We are looking into several markets, such as the CCIC or LEAPING BUNNY PROGRAM, as part of future packaging artwork changes. Though we have always been cruelty free and done our testing on people, over 50,000 volunteers each year, we understand that more people are wanting to see this stated on the packaging. BUT again mentions nothing about ingredients

Wilkinsons

We do not test any of our products or their ingredients on animals. Not really a lot to go on!
Poundland 
“I can confirm that none of the Make-Up Gallery products have been tested on animals, Our supplier has never commissioned animal testing to be conducted on the products that we sell.” BUT nothing about ingredient tests, very vague statement.

With some high street brands it is hard to find their animal testing policy such as top shop so these will be updated as the information is found.

By no means is this a complete list each day new brands come out and information changes and companies policies change. I will try my best to update this list as new information is released.
Because Animal testing policies change over time for the best and worse and that companies decided to sell to china, I would advice that every so often you check out the company lists on PETA and Cruelty Free International just to keep up to date with whats new to the cruelty free market.
Is there a High street brand that should be on this list that I have missed? If so drop me a line or two below and let me know.
Lots of Love Berry xx
