15 Makeup Brands that Surprisingly Test on Animals


List of Top 15 Makeup Brands That Test On Animals

By Contributor: Uzma

Today I’ll be sharing with you a list of makeup brands which are not animal friendly. I compiled this list after much head banging and included only those brand which are frequently spotted in our Vanity Box and Blog. Actually I should use the word ‘basic’ for describing them. You must be having at least one product from all of these companies. Let’s have a look.

MAC Cosmetics isn’t Cruelty Free

Mac: Oh yes! Even I was surprised. A luxury brand which is equally popular in all parts of the world and they are not cruelty free.


Bobbi Brown Tests on Animals

Bobby Brown: Another luxury brand which can be loosely described as Mac’s competitor. It doesn’t have any animal friendly policy either.

Estee Lauder..Why oh Why

Estee Lauder: I have night serum by them and I swear it’s amazeballs. All Estee Lauder products are. Sad to know that they are listed in such a record.

 Clinique y u test on Animals

Clinique: It is famous for equally for its makeup and skin care products. Can’t say much about makeup products but they have some mind blowing skincare range. It’s a pity that they don’t care for animal cruelty.


Vichy is Cruel

Vichy: A brand which is highly lauded for its skin care products. Face wash, lip balm, sunscreens, lotions all of these are highly raved.


 TRESemme Stop Testing on Animals

TRESemme: One of the best hair care brand in the market and highly recommended. They have maintained their range in quite amazing way. They have got everything including conditioner, dry shampoos, mousse, gel, you name it and they’ll have it.


Dove You Too?

Dove: A very common household product. I used their shampoo-conditioner combo for a long time till it stopped working on my tresses. Even now three huge jar of body cream are lying in front of my eyes. It smells heavenly.


Neutrogena Stop Animal Testing

Neutrogena: Another very famous skin care brand. Their cleansing gels are favourite of many celebs. Neutrogena also tests its products on animals.


L’Oreal You Are a Surprise

L’oreal: Needs no introduction. These days its Pure Red collection is making headlines in makeup world. Its true match range is also huge favourite. I was surprised to see it in this list.


Maybelline Stop Cruelty

Mabelline: Another popular makeup brand which needs no intro. New launch of their Colossal Kajal is grabbing attention these days. But here we have listed them for another reason.


Revlon that’s Shameful

Revlon: Another cosmetic brand of American origin. The company has come a long way but still they are using age old formula of testing on animals. Shameful, isn’t it?


Ponds Don’t Do This

Ponds: My vanity is stuffed with their BB cream, talcum powder, cold cream and things like that. It’s a basic which has become necessity by the passage of time.


Garnier for Animal Testing

Garnier: I remember it as my teen age brand. I tried every single variant of their face wash in my early teen. Now It makes me smile how anxious I used to be for my skin care. Good ol’ days.

Avon Please Love Animals

Avon: It doesn’t sell its products in market. They have adopted direct selling method which is much more beneficial. Pity that they didn’t think of a more nature friendly brand they could have created.

Maxfactor Tests on Animals

Max Factor: More than 100 years old company, they surely deserve the status of a legend. Not that they aren’t. But they should have done something against the violence towards animals.

What do you think should be done? We love the quality these brands offer but at the same time hurting animals is no excuse for a good night cream. European Union has banned these brands. What do you think is the solution? A list of cruelty free brands coming up.

  1. Very surprising. I am wondering if they test only for Chinese markets or for others too. ‘Cause they do sell in some European countries too where animal testing is outlawed. So confused :/

  2. They should be banned, i got choked while reading it…it is so sad that these highly recommended skin care brand who promises to give you that feather like skin are causing harm to those cute animals who can not even speak..can not tell there pain…it is really heart breaking.

    This was the great post dear, i can see that how much effort you must have made to write this one….really nice.

  3. Had been waiting for such a post. I don’t use any animal tested brands. Would love to see cruelty-free and vegan brands features on VNA. Peace. ✌

  4. Finally a post on animal cruelty! Recently came to know about this.. It is really sad wen u think about it.. I think there should be more awareness about this..

  5. It’s a shame. When someone does this to an animal we get put behind bars but companies get nothing but research. Why do you have to test on animals if it’s not meant for them. They should test on humans because that’s what they are making it for.

  6. Okay, can anyone tell me a vegan shampoo for a guy? I thought Patanjali didn’t do animal testing since they all claim about being all anti-slaughter and vegetarian all the time but as I just found out they test it on animals too. So, can anyone please suggest me some. Almost impossible for me to find a good reviewed one. Most of the shampoos apparently cause hair fall and I really do not want to ruin my long hair.

  7. All these cosmetic giants easily have the power to stop animal testing, ban export to China thereby making China change their animal testing laws at some point at least, but no, every company from the smallest to the biggest wants to maximise profits. That’s all they care about. L’Oréal is the most shameless, spending millions of dollars on celebrity endorsements but never cares to stop animal testing. Estee lauder, Bobbi Brown, clinique… And MAC has a statement policy that’s just plain irritating that says they are against animal testing but unfortunately need to do so to sell in China. If they really were “against” it they would stop selling there and China would have to change something. But it seems no one wants to be compassionate, the money is not worth giving up. Beauty at the expense of animal torture is just downright cruel. As long as consumers keep buying from these companies nothing will ever change but if each of us takes a pledge to boycott these brands there will be a huge change and companies will be forced to change. Most of my purchases are from popular brands that test on animals and while I will not be throwing anything away, I will never repurchase from those brands ever again. I call every single person to join this cruelty free movement. Please, let’s make it happen!
