The Cruelty-Free Beauty Box: Ethical and sustainable vegan beauty

Latest News

The Cruelty-Free Beauty Box is a great way to discover new sustainable, cruelty-free and vegan beauty products.

The world of subscription boxes now offers quite a few vegan options, but it’s always necessary to pay attention to the products these boxes contain. As a matter of fact, some brands may not follow a strict cruelty-free policy, or may use ingredients we want to avoid. The Cruelty-Free Beauty Box is definitely one of the most ethical subscription services you can find online.

Subscription boxes have been present on the market since 2004. More specifically, beauty boxes have been around since 2010, when the Birchbox was launched by Katia Beauchamp and Hayley Barna. Thanks to such services, beauty addicts can discover and try new products and brands at a reduced price. They usually include full-sized products as well as samples, and the specific items are not revealed till the delivery, so that there’s always a surprise.

However, most of the times, these home-delivery boxes feature brands that are not cruelty-free or vegan. This is why The Cruelty-Free Beauty Box has conquered many vegan subscribers.

How many subscription plans does The Cruelty-Free Beaty Box offer?

The Cruelty-Free Beauty Box offers three different subscription plans, all with free delivery in the UK:

  • The Mini Box: This is totally plastic-free and includes three to six vegan and cruelty-free products. Priced at £22.95 for a bi-monthly subscription, international delivery is available and calculated at checkout.
  • The Original Box: It includes five to eight products, full- and travel-size. The bi-monthly price is £29.95.
  • The Deluxe Box: This not only contains cosmetics, but even the most exquisite vegan treats like Ananda Foods’ marshmallows. It’s priced at £39.95 for two months.

What makes this subscription box unique?

To begin with, this ethical shop and delivery service supports many associations. For example, 10% of the profits for August 2020 will be donated to Animal Free Research. Moreover, the brand plants a tree every five subscriptions, including renewals.

Additionally, subscribers can express a good number of preferences, both in terms of shades, scents and ingredients. The entire selection of international brands featured by the company has a strict cruelty-free policy, offering only vegan products. The Cruelty-Free Beauty Box also has a shop where you can find all kinds of vegan cosmetics and treats. You can also buy vegan zero-waste products from a dedicated section.

The Cruelty-Free Beauty Box hosts a huge number of vegan brands. You can find international companies like Giovanni Cosmetics, Alba Botanica, Ben & Anna, but also British brands like Eden Perfumes.
