Following! It's so hard to find cruelty free makeup and toiletries - but I have found more often than not own brands which aren't stocked in china or exported do the trick (and the usual body shop and lush of course) Avon was my biggest disappointment and I struggle with finding the right foundation too. I also found a great website that can help too http://crueltyfreeproducts.co.uk that does a lot of info on this
"I could only see cruelty free mentioned in the reviews, not on the product info"
IMO shops/brands don't do enough to promote their cruelty free credentials.
Since l'Oreal sold them The Bodyshop have gone back to their cruelty free roots, and even have a vegan range in stores. Superdug's own brand, and M & S own brand are cruelty free, as are the skincare ranges in Holland and Barrett and Lush.
M&S are good - they use the leaping bunny, so you can check all their toiletries for the leaping bunny. I will only buy cruelty free, I wish others would follow suit and we could end the needless cruelty to animals.
"I have an app to check but it's not listed there"
That's what I meant by companies not being vocal enough about their cruelty free brands. Webites that list cruelty free brands seem to miss them out. Is it because they are sold by stores that also sell non cruelty free brands?
(Sorry, bit late returning to the party!) All of my Liz Earle products have the leaping bunny on them and say "cruelty free", they are also suitable for vegetarians (not vegans) and state "no animal extracts". I wonder if it's the spf ingredients?
