Because makeup shouldn't harm us or animals.

Stephanie Thorn, Founder of Clean & Cruelty Free™

Welcome to Clean & Cruelty-Free!

Founded by Stephanie Thorn, Clean & Cruelty-Free is a platform born out of a personal journey with PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome) and a passion for animal welfare. Stephanie’s mission is to help others find beauty and lifestyle products that are less toxic and cruelty-free (aren’t tested on animals).

What Sets Us Apart

At Clean & Cruelty-Free, we don’t claim to be experts with impressive credentials. Instead, we are driven by our love for beauty and a genuine desire to make a positive impact in the world. Our strength lies in our dedication to continuous learning and sharing valuable knowledge with our community.

Why Trust Us

We understand the time-consuming and challenging process of finding truly ethical and non-toxic products. The term “cruelty-free” can be misleading, and not all certifications are trustworthy. We have done the research, and we empower you with the right questions to ask companies about their animal testing policies and how to decipher ingredient lists.

Meet Our Team

Behind Clean & Cruelty-Free, you’ll find Stephanie, the founder, driven by her passion for conscious beauty and lifestyle. Her mother, Cheryl, is an integral part of the team, contributing administratively and sharing the love for animals. We also welcome guest writers occasionally to provide diverse perspectives.

Ethics First

While we adore makeup and skincare, our ultimate focus is on your health and the well-being of animals. We firmly believe that you shouldn’t have to compromise either of these aspects for beauty products. Ethics guide every aspect of our work, ensuring a trustworthy and transparent platform for discussions about mindful beauty and lifestyle, free from judgment and fear-mongering.

Our Mission

Clean & Cruelty-Free aims to be your go-to resource for conscious beauty and lifestyle. Our mission is simple: to ensure that your beauty and household products are as kind to animals as they are to your body. We are committed to creating a compassionate and understanding community that embraces ethical choices and empowers you to make informed decisions.

A little thought and a little kindness are often worth more than a great deal of money.
