What is cruelty free skincare?
Cruelty free skincare means that the listed product does not test on animals.
Customers should be aware that there is a difference however, between cruelty free skincare and vegan skincare. Cruelty free skincare means that overall, animal testing hasn’t been used during the product’s testing phase. It may however contain animal products like milk, gelatin and lanolin making it unsuitable for vegans. Vegan skincare and associated vegan cosmetic products do not use animal products in its production phase.
At Jennifer Bradley, our skincare range is cruelty free and vegan. We encourage our customers to explore the full range of our cruelty free skincare collection today, enjoying the peace of mind that comes with knowing our products are incredibly animal friendly, as it is medically effective on producing great skin results.

Here at Jennifer Bradley, we do not test on animals. We’re proud to be one of the leading skincare and cosmetic companies around the world, championing the way ahead for cruelty free skincare and ensuring that our animal friends are not harmed by any means within the production of our products. We also make certain not to use animal products, working hard to create a line that’s as ethically responsible as it is effective on skin.

Why should I switch to cruelty free products?
Testing on animals is extremely cruel. Mice aren’t just subjected to animal product tests, but also, rabbits, cats and even dogs. Many of these animals are ones we call pets, and we would never subject them to the same dangerous chemicals they’re being exposed to that companies today do for animal testing.
It’s also extremely unnecessary. Animal testing occurs when companies want to create new products and new ingredients and that’s not fair on our animal friends, especially when there are over 7000 cosmetic ingredients listed safe to use. Companies today that test on animals choose to test on animals and that is simply not on - and as a result of this, thousands of cruelty free skincare products now exist in the market to combat against these companies and we encourage our customers to explore the full range of our animal-friendly skincare collection available today.
What are the benefits of cruelty free skincare?
There are so many benefits to cruelty free skincare! Not only do they not harm our animal friends, but they’re generally more healthier and better for your skin. Jennifer Bradley’s range of cruelty free skincare products uses as many natural and proven-safe synthetic products as is possible, which in turn, reduces breakouts, allergies and inflammation on your skin as we eliminate dangerous, toxic ingredients such as parabens, sulfates and synthetic dyes.
With these ethically sourced natural ingredients, this also means that our cruelty free skincare range is well suited to all different skin types. Whether you have dry, combination, oily, sensitive skin or anything in between, our cruelty free skincare products will have you glowing in no time.
And last but not least, perhaps one of the most exciting reasons to purchase cruelty free skincare is that it’s supporting local business. Most conventional skincare products come from major companies with billions of dollars and global reach. Local stores like us, are very customer orientated, dedicated to helping our customers achieve great results with their skin, while also, championing the way for cruelty free skincare, driving real and effective change within the industry.
