Cruelty-Free Brands in South Africa 2020-2021

Transitioning to cruelty-free beauty can seem like a daunting move, especially if you have a set skincare routine and makeup collection. However, it is one of the best decisions you can make. As a conscious consumer of ethical, clean and animal friendly products you are basically changing the world one purchase at a time.

Two years ago, I compiled my first list of cruelty-free brands in South Africa. Since then the list has grown and more cruelty-free beauty brands have entered the market. Unfortunately, some brands had to be removed because of their change in animal testing regulations or have started selling in mainland China where animal testing is permitted.

As mentioned above, I have added a few brands who confirmed that they do not test on animals. I have also researched brands on my favourite international cruelty-free blogs Cruelty-Free Kitty and Ethical Elephant.

The brands listed below are all available in stores or online. If a brand does not appear on the list it means that it is NOT cruelty-free.
