If animal testing is not an issue on your radar you might be shocked to learn of the number of your favourite beauty brands that still routinely test on animals.
Until laws are passed to put an end to this unthinkable practice, that effects both animals and the environment, it’s up to the consumer to vote with their money and choose cruelty free beauty products.
Thankfully, over the last 25 years, the growing public demand for cruelty free cosmetics has been meet with a host of forward thinking cosmetic companies that have sworn off animal testing.
As a result there has never been as much choice, and it’s a trend we are delighted to see gaining more momentum.
