Why Cruelty-Free Makeup?

Why should you switch to cruelty-free cosmetics?


It’s pretty simple really, switching to cruelty-free products save our furry little friends who have the ability to feel, think, play, and even be loyal to us, but lack the ability to speak for themselves.

 

the truth

Animal testing is torture and a death sentence to them. As evolved and educated human beings, we need to step up and advocate for living beings who are far too often considered “lower” than us. There’s an abundance of information out there and you can make a change right here and now that directly impacts animals just by simply switching makeup brands.

Now, cruelty-free does not necessarily mean flipping a switch and going completely vegan the next day—unless you are ready to go all in. This is a common misconception and can quite frankly scare some people off. Going cruelty-free is really just making a small lifestyle choice that costs the same, or even less, and gives you a feel for a greater sense of purpose.
