If you’re an animal lover like us, you’re likely already conscious of whether or not a product you purchase is cruelty-free or not. But what does the term actually mean? To put it simply, “cruelty-free” means a product and its ingredients weren’t tested on animals. At Thayers, we do not test on animals under any circumstances and are proud to be certified by PETA’s cruelty-free seal of approval. Through a long-standing commitment to creating pure, effective, cruelty-free products of the highest natural quality, we have built a legacy personal care brand that promotes ethical and socially responsible skincare options for consumers.

In addition to the simple fact that skincare being tested on helpless animals is impossible to stomach, there are other benefits to going cruelty-free to consider. By opting for products that aren’t tested on animals, you’re also bypassing the inclusion of bad chemicals. In our products, parabens, sulfates and synthetic dyes are nowhere to be found. Our famous witch hazel and aloe vera formula is a clean and effective natural solution that is a better choice for your skin overall, as it clears breakouts and settles inflammation organically.

By narrowing your skincare and makeup options to cruelty-free brands only, you’ll enhance the experience of choosing what to buy and adopt more mindful purchasing practices. With us, you know exactly what you’re putting on your skin. Our signature products are reliable and affordable for every person with every skin type, every time. We’ve taken the guesswork out of having to test a large number of products to see what’s good and bad. With our simple, effective ingredients, you don’t have to worry about putting a dent in your wallet or causing harm to your body or to animals.

Animal testing also have negative impacts on the health and safety of our environment. While going cruelty-free has become the norm for many companies, it’s still not the universal standard, unfortunately. And beware, small brands may be owned by large companies who may still test other products on animals. Individuals should educate themselves on the consequences that animal-tested products cause and should choose not to support those companies that test on animals. By choosing to shop cruelty-free products, you’re ultimately choosing to take a stand for positive change.

  • Good evening! I have tried your Rose witch hazel my sister is using and absolutely love it! I didn’t realize how many other products and scents you offer. I am writing to find out if you have any free samples you give out at this time or coupons for your products? I look forward to hearing back from you

  • Hi,
    I found on the ingredients label there is glycerin. May I know is the glycerin animal based or plant based? Looking forward for your response…

  • Hello! I have been using the the Witch Hazel Facial Toner (Rose Petal) for a while now and love it…but as someone who recently went vegan and ambling my best to use only vegan products, what ingredients do you use that make this product not vegan? I see the official PETA stamp for cruelty free (which is amazing!) but not vegan. I want to continue to use this product, but only if I know it is vegan. Thank you!
