Th­ese beauty brands are com­mit­ted to of­fer­ing high-per­form­ing op­tions that don’t hurt Fido.

LUSH

All prod­ucts are 100 per cent cru­elty-free – no part is tested on an­i­mals, or linked to com­pa­nies as­so­ci­ated with an­i­mal test­ing. ‘We buy in­gre­di­ents from sup­pli­ers that do not com­mis­sion tests on an­i­mals,’ says Lush’s Anita Baker. TRY Cup­cake Fresh Face Mask (Dh75), a choc-mint ve­gan mask that knocks out blem­ishes.

HER­BAL-ES­SEN­TIALS

This home-grown skin and body care com­pany has signed up to PETA’s Beauty With­out Bun­nies pro­gramme, cer­ti­fy­ing that its prod­ucts are proudly cru­elty-free. TRY Nut­meg & Sun­flower

Oil 24 Hour Cream (Dh189), a hy­drat­ing day and night cream that suits all skin types.

THE BODY SHOP

The green-lead­ing stal­wart has joined forces with Cru­elty Free In­ter­na­tional, an an­i­mal pro­tec­tion and ad­vo­cacy group, set­ting a goal to col­lect eight mil­lion signatures world­wide to pe­ti­tion the United Na­tions for an in­ter­na­tional con­ven­tion that bans an­i­mal test­ing glob­ally. TRY Baked

Blush (Dh76), a cheek duo that flushes and high­lights in one stroke.

KAT VON D

The tat­too artist-turned-beauty mag­nate loves an­i­mals even more than she loves winged eye­liner, of­ten post­ing pas­sion­ate man­i­festos to so­cial me­dia de­rid­ing an­i­mal test­ing. TRY Ever­last­ing Liq­uid Lip­stick in Mal­ice (Dh100), a stun­ning sum­mer-ready coral lip colour, that won’t budge, feather or bleed.

PAUL MITCHELL

The hair­care brand pulled its prod­ucts from Chi­nese shelves when an­i­mal test­ing be­came a re­quire­ment, and uses only syn­thetic bris­tle brushes in its sa­lons. TRY Clar­i­fy­ing Sham­poo

Two (Dh56), a deep­cleans­ing sham­poo that re­moves all traces of prod­uct build-up.

LE LABO

The French brand spe­cialises in niche fra­grances that are also ve­gan and cru­elty-free as ver­i­fied by PETA. How­ever its sale to the Es­tee Lauder group may af­fect that stand­ing. TRY: The Noir 29 EDP (Dh895), a woody uni­sex scent that’s in­spired by black tea, but smells more like a blend of fig, cedar, to­bacco and rose.

JACK BLACK

The fam­ily-owned Texan men’s range has never tested on an­i­mals, mak­ing it a great al­ter­na­tive for shavers com­pared to more du­bi­ous su­per­mar­ket buys. TRY: Supreme Cream Triple Cush­ion Shave Lather (Dh100) is rich foam­ing shave cream that soft­ens both whiskers and skin.
