The skin around your eyes is the thinnest, all the more reason to use eye cream as it can help fight wrinkles, improve dark circles and get rid of puffy eyes. However, before you splurge on that eye cream, have you checked if it’s cruelty-free?

Not only is animal testing cruel and inhumane, but the results it produces are also unreliable and unnecessary. Here we have compiled a list of the best cruelty-free eye creams available. Make a change and save your furry friends today by choosing cruelty-free.

Which beauty brands are cruelty-free?

It can be challenging to identify which brand actually conduct animal testing and which are genuinely cruelty-free. If you head to your local department store, a few familiar beauty brands that are cruelty-free include First Aid Beauty, Sunday Riley, Drunk Elephant, Too Faced, It Cosmetics and Tarte Cosmetics, to name a few. These brands offer an array of skincare and makeup products that have not gone through animal testing.

How can I ensure a brand is 100% cruelty-free?

Most, if not all, companies do not openly disclose any of their practices and experiments related to animals. One way to ascertain a brand’s cruelty-free status is by checking whether it’s Leaping Bunny approved or if a product is PETA-certified.
