With the demand for conscious beauty products being higher than ever, there are tons of great options out there for quality, cruelty-free products. In this article, you’ll find a curated selection of the best cruelty-free moisturizers on the market, from night creams to cooling lotions to formulas with SPF.
If you’re interested in a cruelty-free moisturizer, you might also prefer to shop vegan. Many of the products on this list are both cruelty free and vegan (yes, there is a difference between being cruelty-free and vegan) — which means that they’re produced without the use of animal testing and without ingredients derived from animal by-products. To confirm whether a product is cruelty-free and/or vegan, you can also check if they’ve received a certification from an eligible third-party organization, such as The Leaping Bunny Program or the PETA. For good measure, you can also take a look at their ingredients list to double check that no animal-derived products are included.
After you’ve picked out your new animal-friendly moisturizer, overhaul the rest of your routine with these cruelty-free sunscreens, deodorants, and shampoos. You can also check out this list of cruelty-free beauty brands so you’re better informed for the future.
