The Ultimate List of Our Favourite Cruelty-free Brands in India
Testing products on animals is unfair and cruel :( If we choose cruelty-free products, it is not only better for the animals but also for us. Cruelty-free products are, more often than not, also free of chemicals like paraben, sulphate, and synthetic dyes.
To make things easier for you, we have curated the ultimate list of cruelty-free brands available in India. Check it out:
Body Cafe is a homegrown cruelty-free beauty and wellness brand. From skincare to haircare products, they have a wide range of handcrafted products inspired by home remedies ‘gharelu nuskhe’ and nature. Be it their Lilly Valley Body Butter that provides skin with the perfect nourishment and moisture, or their vegan men’s after-shave cream - they have something for everyone. They have cruelty-free products that are also natural, organic, and chemical free.
Built from nature, The Nature Masons is a beautiful personal care brand that offers a variety of cruelty-free products that are also gender-neutral, organic, zero waste, reef safe, and come in completely recyclable packaging. If you’re looking for cruelty free beauty products, The Nature Masons have a long list of guilt-free hair and skin care products. The solid conditioner bar is one of our favourites!
No list of cruelty free skincare brands in India is complete without Plum. Their skincare products have carefully selected plant-based actives. They are vegan and cruelty free which means they do not contain beeswax, honey, insects (yuck). What’s your skin type? Oily? Dry? Acne-Prone? Plum offers a variety of skin care essentials for every skin type. Our favourite? It's the vegan moisturizing cream that helps in combating dryness and leaves your skin feeling plump.

While ensuring that the ingredients and the products are sustainable, affordable and eco friendly, Bath and Being’s products are made in small batches (so you can always grab a fresh one). We are obsessed with their Canna bean scrub made with coffee and granulated walnut shells that smells heavenly and does wonders for your skin!
Coffee is the lifeline for sleep deprived people (and it smells great!) How about an entire range of caffeinated personal care products? mCaffeine’s products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free (Peta approved), and contain no SLS, parabens, silicones or mineral oils. Their body polishing kit will deeply moisturise and nourish dull and dry skin, leaving you feeling oh-so refreshed.
