Being both an animal lover and a beauty obsessive, I was keen to discover which beauty brands do not test their products on animals.
There are many cruelty-free makeup brands out there, meaning you can follow the latest beauty trends without harming innocent animals.
How to identify cruelty free makeup brands.
– There still remains debate over which brands are cruelty free as many brands have their own definition of animal testing and vegan makeup products. Ultimately, people must decide for themselves which brands meet their personal definition of cruelty-free cosmetics.
-You can use the following resources to find cosmetics that have satisfied standards determined by the leaping bunny scheme and The People for The Ethical Treatment of Animals guidelines:
– The leaping bunny logo is the international standard placed on beauty products to show they are entirely cruelty-free. Products labelled with the logo of the leaping bunny must conform to rigorous standards meaning the product ingredients have not been tested on animals at any stage. A list of cosmetics brands recognised as cruelty-free by the leaping bunny logo are available by following this link: http://www.gocrueltyfree.org/search?product-type=cosmetics&country=231
– The People for The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) also have their own system of classifying cruelty-free brands. They have produced some really useful lists of which companies do and which companies don’t test on animals.
