Ethical beauty is booming, as we’re all looking for brands that are a little kinder to the planet and nature. Choosing cruelty free haircare products is the perfect step towards building a more ethical beauty routine, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice quality. Some of our favourite haircare brands are completely cruelty-free while still wowing us with innovative, hardworking formulas.
Our cruelty-free and clean haircare isn’t just kinder - it’s also free of harsh chemicals such as parabens and sulphates, which you might want to look out for, especially if you have sensitive skin. We’ve rounded up some of the best cruelty-free haircare brands so you can revamp your beauty arsenal for the year ahead.
Why Use Cruelty Free and Clean Haircare Products?
‘Cruelty-free’ means ‘absolutely no animal testing’ at any level of production. In other words, no cute fluffies had to suffer for your shampoo to be in stock. Brands need to be certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny, PETA, or Choose Cruelty-Free. But don’t worry: we’ve vetted our products thoroughly before including them in our cruelty-free section, so you don’t have to.
Our clean haircare products are also paraben free, sulphate (SLS/SLES) free, phthalate free, aminophenol free, phenylenediamine free, triclosan free, toluene free, and diethanolamine free. Instead, these products contain ingredients that are not only gentler on the environment, but are also less likely to irritate your scalp, especially if you have sensitive skin.
Did you know that buying in bulk or larger sized bottles is a great way to reduce your impact on the environment? Our Clean Beauty category offers an amazing range of larger sized bottles and value packs which not only reduces overall plastic but also saves you money in the long-run!
