Cruelty-Free Brands Available in Ireland

Here is the official Flawless and Pawless list of cruelty-free brands that are available in Ireland. Many of them are 100% vegan, too. Some brands are cruelty-free but are owned by parent companies who test on animals.

I sourced these official cruelty-free brands from Cruelty Free KittyLogical Harmony and Cruelty Free International, but the majority is from my own research.

Some of the below brands are not officially certified as cruelty-free or vegan. Many of these uncertified brands are working towards an official certification, however since the EU ban of animal testing and marketing, some brands don’t believe it’s a necessity for them to do so. Some companies may also not have the budget to spend on an official certification, but are gradually working themselves towards this position.

It’s important to note that there are many fake logos and packaging statements on many products that claim to be cruelty-free. Some statements to be careful of include:

  • “Finished product not tested on animals”
  • “We never test on animals except when required by law”
  • “We do not test on animals ourselves”

The only official cruelty-free certification logos you should look out for are the bunny logos for PETA, Leaping Bunny and Choose Cruelty Free. Leaping Bunny has proven to be the most reliable cruelty-free certification as it is the most rigorous process of them all. I will detail the difference between the certification processes between PETA and Leaping Bunny in a separate article. There is also a difference between a brand that is certified vegan and a brand that is certified vegan AND cruelty-free.

I’ve also pasted the two most reliable cruelty-free certification logos beside each certified cruelty-free brand: The PETA logo: peta-logo-small or the Leaping Bunny logo:

    LeapingBunny_colour_CMYK

Some cruelty-free brands clearly state ‘NO TO ANIMAL TESTING’, ‘AGAINST ANIMAL TESTING’ or put their own bunny logo on the packaging with a message to confirm they do not test on animals. While animal testing and marketing has been banned by the EU since 2013, it is important not to buy products from brands who sell their cosmetics in China, where it is required by law for foreign cosmetics to be tested on animals. The product you buy in the local chemist in Ireland may not have been tested on animals itself, but unfortunately the same product is being tested on animals in the remaining countries in the world who have not banned animal testing.

Please note that for a brand to be listed on Flawless and Pawless as cruelty-free it must offer VEGAN OPTIONS. This shows that the brand is doing its best to eliminate all associations with animals from their line.

Another thing to note is that Flawless and Pawless does not support cruelty-free brands that use Multi-Level Marketing strategies. You can find out why here.

Flawless and Pawless is Ireland's cruelty-free cosmetic blog created by 23 year-old cosmetic expert, Ailsha Davey. With eight years working in the beauty industry in Dublin as a professional make-up artist and cosmetic expert, Ailsha discovered some of the horrors of cosmetic animal testing- and the lack of knowledge within the Irish market about it. Flawless and Pawless has been set up to spread awareness across Ireland of cosmetic animal testing, as well as to provide suggestions for cruelty-free alternatives to the Irish market's favourite cosmetic products.

One thought on “Cruelty-Free Brands Available in Ireland

  1. I also read that while Nudestix are now selling in China that they have found away to get around the animal testing by law.

    I have my concerns about this but if it is true then why can’t other brands do the same.
