I am gigantic animal lover and whenever possible, I purchase beauty brands which do not test on animals. And I am positive I am not the only beauty lover who aims to stick with brands which do not test on animals. But many people do not know which brands are currently cruelty free. So here are a few brands that will make you beautiful while still being kind to animals.
- ELF – skincare, brushes and cosmetics. You can get it all with ELF cosmetics at a reasonable price without your product being tested on animals. Not only do they not test on animals, but ELF does not endorse such products. The products do not contain animal derived ingredients. The beeswax has been replaced with synthetic beeswax and lanolin has been replaced by Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladinpale-2. So the next time you are shopping for loose powder or eyeshadow, save a few dollars and purchase a product from a company kind to animals;
- Kat Von D – who doesn’t like Kat Von D cosmetics? The makeup is high-quality, but not tested on animals. And the Kat Von D products are totally free of animal-derived ingredients. She got rid of common cosmetic ingredients such as beeswax and carmine (red dye made from beetles) and chose kinder alternatives without compromising color.
- Urban Decay – this brand is cruelty-free and committed to ending animal testing. Not only does Urban Decay not test their products on animals, but the company refuses to allow other to test on their behalf. Plus, Urban Decay require their suppliers to certify the raw materials used in the manufacturing of their products are not tested on animals. It is also certified by PETA as cruelty-free.
- NYX – another cruelty-free brand is NYX. Way before society raised the question of animal testing, NYX was committed to new methods of assessing safety without the need of testing on animals. In 1989, NYX ceased testing its products on animals. About 14 years before regulation required it. As of today, the company no longer tests its ingredients on animals, nor do they tolerate any exception to this rule.
- Wet N’ Wild – the cosmetic company NEVER tests on animals. They never had and never will test on animals. Not only are the products cruelty-free, but vegan as well. So the next time you are on the Wet N’ Wild website, click on that adorable bunny symbol and feel safe in knowing you are getting glammed up with a cruelty-free product.
Those are just a handful of cosmetics which are cruelty-free. Anyone can make you beautiful in a cost-effective way manner. So go out there and make a difference today.
