Cruelty-free beauty has exploded in recent years, with many of us becoming more conscious of the choices we make when trying and purchasing beauty products. Without testing on animals, cruelty-free beauty products still provide the luxury and joy of makeup, haircare and skincare without questionable production and testing methods.

Whether you're looking for your next cruelty-free purchase or have recently made the choice to only purchase beauty products free from animal testing, you are sure to find something you will love in our comprehensive guide of all things cruelty-free.

Cruelty-free Makeup

You may be suprised to discover that many of your favourite makeup brands are actually cruelty-free. With brands such as Sleek and Illamasqua are all completely cruelty-free and even offer vegan products, free from any animal products in addition to testing.

Illamasqua Beyond Powder

Add an illuminated glow to your skin with the ultra-metallic Illamasqua Beyond Powder in the shade OMG. The divine shimmering champagne hue adds a beautiful radiance to your complexion when dusted on the high points of your face - on the cheekbones, cupid's bow and down to bridge of the nose.

The Beyond Powders are also completely vegan, free from animal testing and by-products.

Cruelty-free Skincare

Often rich in natural and organic ingredients, cruelty-free skincare can help to improve the clairty and appearance of your complexion, leaving your skin looking healthy and radiant.

Pai Kukui and Jojoba Skin Brightening Exfoliator

Remaining cruelty-free is not simply about refraining from testing on animals for many brands. Creating products which do not cause any harm once used is often another consideration for many cruelty-free brands.
