Cruelty Free Makeup!

My Makeup Collection 

What is cruelty free makeup? This is the question that gets asked by most beauty lovers who want to only buy products that are not tested on animals. Cruelty-free is a term used by companies who's products do not harm or test on animals during development. The act of harming/killing animals can be done by companies who use either lab rats or bunnies to test their products in order to make sure that their products are safe for human use. During creation, these products can become harmful and even cause death to millions of animals per year. 

While going through my makeup collection, I noticed that there were some products that had a bunny silhouette and that intrigued me into learning more about which of my products were or weren't tested on animals. I have come across the PETA website where you are able to input a brand and it instantly let's you know whether that company tests on animals. You can check out their website HERE and perhaps start doing some digging of your own if you are interested in going cruelty-free. If you are a person who is always shopping for makeup and wants to know whether your makeup is cruelty-free then I suggest you download their app straight to your phone HERE. The Leaping Bunny Program is another website where you can directly search up brands that the program approves, you can check out their website HERE or download their app HERE

I am surprised to know that the majority of drugstore beauty brands such as Maybelline, Revlon, L'Oreal, and Neutrogena are not cruelty-free. I was also surprised to find out the NYX products which is owned by L'Oreal is in fact cruelty-free and they DO NOT test on animals. I think it is important for people to become aware of the dangers that their beauty products bring to animals and should reconsider purchasing from companies that test on animals. I still have a lot of makeup in my collection to go through and know which makeup brands I will no longer be purchasing from. Let's educate others and make this world into a better place one beauty product at a time and remember to always leave a little sparkle wherever you go.
