Cruelty-free skincare used to largely be limited to only a handful of options. Once you had found a cruelty-free skincare line, you would feel as if you hit the jackpot.
Now, thanks to increasing awareness of animal rights, we have an abundance of brands to choose from. While we are all familiar with the well-known ones, there are some underrated brands that deserve your attention.
So which lesser-known cruelty-free brands should you put on your wish list? Here we highlight four you’ll soon be raving to your friends about.
While Australians may be familiar with this Aussie cruelty-free brand, the rest of us may not have yet come across Australis. The brand has been around for more than three decades, and in that time has produced a large array of makeup products. Never tested on animals, the range also includes a substantial vegan line to boot.
We particularly love their demi-matt lip cream, GRLBOSS 50, which is a range of—you guessed it—fifty stunning lip colors that truly pop. Some of our faves include Fierce, Worthy, and Visionary. After all, who doesn’t like a bit of an empowering pick-me-up when they’re doing their makeup?
Baebody is an up-and-coming brand that is based in Chicago, Illinois. The brand offers a variety of skincare, hair, and bath products, ranging from serums and masks, to scrubs and body treatments, to shampoos and hair oils. The best thing is that their products are all cruelty-free and work like a charm.
Take, for example, their Retinol Moisturizer Cream for Face and Eye Area. It’s not only cruelty-free, but it’s also 71% organic and free of parabens, fragrances, and dyes. No wonder this potent cream is considered to be one of the best wrinkle creams on the market! So, if you’re after an under the radar brand that hits all the rights points, Baebody is the way to go.
Deep Steep is a family-run brand that has been running for thirty years. Deep Steep’s products are cruelty-free and vegan, as well as being free of harmful ingredients like phthalates, parabens, and phenoxyethanol. All of their products are formulated in an FDA-registered manufacturing facility on Johns Island, South Carolina.
So what’s in the range that’s worth checking out? Well, we can’t get enough of their Argon Oil Body Lotion, which has a tempting variety of delicious smelling scents including Pure Coconut, Lilac Blossom, and Mango Papaya. There are also tons of other products such as hand creams and soaps that are worth trying out. As cruelty-free products become even more popular, we’re sure Deep Steep is a brand that we’ll be hearing a lot more of.
