Beauty Without Cruelty: Making the Shift To Cruelty-Free Beauty Products
First of all, I’d just like to say I’m not going to be talking about makeup looks, I like makeup don’t get me wrong I just don’t feel I’m qualified enough to tell others how to achieve their desired look.
I do love me some beauty products though, pampering myself and making myself look nice just like almost every woman does. But the big thing I am passionate about is living cruelty-free…
So this includes my diet but also products such as cosmetics, skincare and hair products that are free of animal-derived ingredients, from brands that do not test on animals and do not sell in China.

What’s with Animal Testing
Testing on animals is now banned in the UK and across the EU, but this is not the story throughout the rest of the world. Living cruelty-free has become increasingly popular in recent years, with more and more companies making a stance.
Even so, many top brands such as Avon, Victoria’s Secret and Benefit still carry out cruel tests on animals in the Far East.
Ensure that you check the small print of the products you are purchasing.
If you are interested in articles of this kind, you most likely are trying to be a more ethical person. Perhaps you are already a vegetarian or vegan when it comes to your meals. And you may already have stopped buying leather or fur.
Check out beauty brands that are renowned for their vegan-credentials. I’ve put together a Complete List Of Cruelty-Free Brands here (coming soon – added to regularly as I discover more).
Companies like FRUU and Pacifica make it a point of business not to test on animals or use any animal derived ingredients in their cosmetic ranges.
