If you’re not familiar with the concept – a dupe is an affordable alternative that’s comparable to a different, usually more high-end/expensive product. The idea is to find the similar quality and function for less money. When I first made the switch to buying only cruelty-free products, I often wanted similar products to what I had been using, just a not-tested-on-animals version. So instead of dupes based on price, this list dupes products tested on animals for ones not tested on animals (although often the cruelty-free product does cost less). For items like cleansers, where the main selling point is function rather rather than appearance/color, I compared them based on whether the items work the same or similarly (I did try to note any appearance/texture difference). As I post about cruelty-free products on the site, if they happen to be a good dupe for a tested-on-animals product, I’ll add them to the list. I want to try to keep this list constantly expanding, because I really believe you don’t have to compromise quality to buy cruelty-free!
