Show the world you care. Use our app to check if a brand is Cruelty-Free (not testing on animals) while shopping!

We believe that no companies should test their products on animals in 21st century. By not buying products of those companies who still tests you can force them to change their policy. There are many more reliable and humane ways to do research which do not involve animal suffering.

Knowledge is the power. Having information about your product’s testing policy can help you to make informed decision in favor of companies that do not test on animals. And this can make our world better!


• Search for a brand you use or want to use and get information about their animal testing policy
• Offline mode (use app without network connection)
• Save preferred brands to bookmarks for quick access
• See if brand is also vegan friendly with our vegan badge
• Propose a brand to be added to the list
• Explore tab where you can find categorized brands


We’re a couple who care. We’re creating this app without any commercial interest in our spare time on our own cost.

We want to give you a simple tool to care and make your own contribution to more humane world.


• We want to go beyond cosmetics and personal care products. Add more product categories and details. So you can check your clothing, your food or anything else.
• We want to build a community of people who care. So anyone will be able to add product, moderate it, improve brand details, add alternatives and recommendations.
• We want to make it even easier to check a brand by adding barcode scanner
• And much more


We’re always open for any support you can give us.

If you can code, write, design, translate or have any other talent that can help us - do not hesitate to contact us: !

P.S. there are few sources we get data from:
• KittyBunny
• Our own web research (through official/unofficial companies policies)
• People like you who want to help make better world

Amazing and trustworthy app!

I have been on a mission to become completely cruelty free and I thought that I had accomplished this goal. I downloaded this app to double check what brands claim to be cruelty free online and I was shocked by the dishonesty from some companies. Many beauty brands have been bought and sold over the years to bigger manufacturers. The original company could be cruelty free but the main company that bought them is not therefore meaning that brand is not cruelty free. In my eyes that brand even if it’s just a branch should not claim to be cruelty free. With that being said this app will tell you if the brand is owned by a third party and if they test on animals. I had been supporting the brand Burts Bees for a long time thinking they did not test on animals only to find out that clorox (yes, the cleaning brand that is known for their BLEACH products) now owns that brand. Clorox is not cruelty free. They test their chemical, bleach, and toxic filled products that humans are advised to not ingest or leave on their skin on helpless animals. I was devastated to realize I was supporting that but thanks to this app I can correct my mistake and refuse to purchase anymore of their products. Please do your research and use this app as a guide to help find the truth about brands and whether or not they are truely 100% cruelty free. Highly recommend this app.❤️🐰

Cruelty-free matters!

Only recently did I learn how cruelly animals are tortured and abused in laboratories, and it truly breaks my heart to see them hurt and malnourished, without a glimpse of grass, sunlight, and even human contact. With Cares, I can easily spot whether a brand is cruelty free or vegan, and it surprised me to find out that many of the brands that I used to use tested on animals. Not anymore! It’s so helpful with bookmarks, and it alerts you if a company is part of a bigger brand that tests on animals, and they’re open to feedback and adding new brands to the list. The only thing that confuses me are the gray-area companies, which aren’t proven to test on animals or be cruelty free. Still, thank you SO MUCH for such an amazing and helpful app! I’m so happy to say that I’ve gone cruelty-free!

Parent Companies

I really like this app and what it supports! One thing I would say would be to add if a brand is owned by a parent company that does test on animals. That would be even better!! I also really like how you have brands that that are in groups so you can compare. I think it could be even better if you find that a company does test and offer suggestions for an alternative and maybe make the groups more specific such as shampoo, soap, deodorant, and many more. I think this would be a lot easier to find which brand offers what. Overall I love this app!!
