Cruelty-free K-Beauty Brands

cruelty-free k-beauty

If you been a reader of my blog for a while now you'll recognise my support for cruelty-free makeup and skincare as well as my interest in Korean beauty. And with those in mind, this post came about.

I know it can be difficult to find out whether a foreign brand is cruelty-free or not since, as much as I would love to be, I'm not an expert in every language. So I thought it might be of help to compose a list of brands for everyone. I hope it will be of use to some of you!



  • Abbamart
  • April Skin
  • Chica Y Chico [cushion review here]
  • Cosrx
  • Eglips
  • Heimish
  • Innisfree
  • Karadium
  • Nakeup face

Of course, this list is far from being complete. I hope to add more to it as I find out about more brands. Do you know of any that I haven't included?

Also are there any brands on here you would like me to try out and review? I find it hard to decide which one to try next but if any of you could help me out that would be awesome.

I'm also looking into seeing if any of these are vegan. Would you want that sort of information to be included in this post or a whole new post on its own?
