South African Cruelty Free Beauty Brands

Written by The Glam Green Girl

Hi My Beauty Bunny Readers. At the beginning of this year, I decided that I was going to try and switch all of my make up over to cruelty free make up. All of skincare products are cruelty free and about 99.9% are natural and organic but now it’s time for me to make the switch with my makeup products. I wrote a blog post on going cruelty free at the beginning of the year where I express my love for animals. Over the past few weeks I’ve been compiling a list of South African Cruelty Free Beauty companies which I hope will help many of you that live in South Africa.

These companies have been identified by Beauty Without Cruelty South Africa as being cruelty free and those that are not on BWCSA’s list are in the process of being certified. I chatted to many of the owners of these companies and was assured that they are cruelty free!

You can check out the Beauty Without Cruelty South Africa website which is updated regularly.

Here are the South African beauty companies that I’ve discovered so far as being cruelty free:

  • Africa Organics
  • Beautiful Earth
  • Blendbox
  • Dermasure
  • Eco Products
  • Enchantrix
  • Esse
  • Hey Gorgeous
  • Inthusiasm
  • Just Pure
  • Lavish
  • Meadowsweet
  • Mioja
  • Natroloe
  • Naturals Beauty
  • Oh Lief
  • Philosophia Botanica
  • Pure Beginnings
  • Quintessence
  • Rain Africa
  • Rooibos Aromatics
  • Savane
  • Symphatane
  • Vanda
  • The Victorian Garden

If you are a South African Beauty Company that is cruelty free, please contact me and I will add you to this list.

Have a look at the other companies that My Beauty Bunny has listed as cruelty-free, it’s such a great help when choosing cosmetics that have been made without harming the beautiful animals of this Earth!

Love Always,

  1. South Africa really surprises me. You hear such cruel things coming out of their country because of the hunting and poaching but they are also one of the most advanced nations in offering cruelty-free alternatives for beauty, food and textiles. It’s quite remarkable.

    Hi Kimmi! Thanks for reading! A lot people and beauty brands are being conscious of their ingredients here in SA which is really great, I’m glad it was a good surprise for you 🙂

    Keep well,

  5. Not all of these brands are actually on the Beauty without Cruelty list http://www.bwcsa.co.za/files/THE%20LIST%20FEB%202014(1).pdf

    If a company has not been audited and endorsed by Beauty without Cruelty there is no proof of their claims. Be very suspect of companies that make claims that are not backed up by BwC endorsement.

    http://www.happibunni.co.za only stocks products that are on the BwC list. So you can be sure that anything that you buy from their online store is as cruelty-free as you can get.

  6. I’ve read that the brand ‘NYX’ is also cruelty free. It doesn’t seem to be on your list – does this mean that the products in SA are not considered cruelty free?

  7. Please see a complete list of cruelty free US brands (like NYX) on the main cruelty free list page.

  8. Hi GlamGreen Girl

    I loved your list of South African products, but I am struggling to find a cruelty free sunscreen that is SPF 50 in South African any suggestions?

  9. Noticed that Environ was not on this list.
    Beauty therapists in Australia swear that it is cruelty free but I cannot find any information supporting that.
    What is the go with Environ?


  10. I haven’t heard of Environ – but I would suggest reaching out to them. I have a list of questions to ask here: http://mybeautybunny.com/how-do-i-find-out-if-a-brand-is-cruelty-free/
