Great Cruelty-Free Skincare Products

Want to put some extra “care” in your next self-care day? Here’s a list of skincare products you can use to care for yourself, your skin, and the ecosystem, too.

Before we get started, let’s quickly break down what it means to be “cruelty-free.” In order for a brand to be considered cruelty-free, it cannot test on animals, must ensure that its suppliers don’t test on animals, cannot commission any third parties to test on animals on their behalf, and cannot sell its products in any countries that require animal testing, such as mainland China.

  • Eye Care – While from a formula standpoint, eye creams/serums aren’t that different than facial creams/serums, they’re still a fun addition for any self-care day. Acure’s Seriously Soothing Eye Serum Stick ($17.99) is the perfect self-care day staple for dry/sensitive skin because of its cool, gentle applicator. Another option is hydrogels which you can apply and leave under your eyes similar to a sheet mask. Acure’s Detox-Depuff Charcoal Lemonade Under Eye Hydrogels ($4.99) are great for combination to oily skin.
