At the end of the day, it’s up to each individual to decide whether they can use a beauty product that has been tested on animals with a clear conscience, or not.
Many countries have banned the practice of testing beauty products on animals, and are finding alternate ways to test their ingredients. It used to be that either certain ingredients, or the final product was tested to see if animals had reactions to it. This would then indicate to the manufacturer whether the product safe to use on humans, or not.
Finding beauty products that have not been tested on animals is a lot harder than you may think. With more and more people becoming aware, however, animal testing will hopefully be banned everywhere, very soon.
If you wish to start only using products that have not been tested on animals, look out for a bunny logo on the back of the packaging or visit Beauty Without Cruelty for more information.Until then, here are some of our favourite animal-friendly beauty brands that you can support:
