Beauty without the beast

Even tho it’s hard to have a 100% vegan or cruelty free beauty product because even if the product itself is not tested on animals some ingrediants might have been. But eh, at least we are trying right ? veganism is about restraining as much as possible!

As a makeup fanatic I know it can be hard to find everything you want in makeup so here’s a list  of my favourite vegan or cruelty free brand.  I am so happy that more and more brand are trying to opt for a more moral way of testing their product, and most of them are trying to go vegan and I think it’s beautiful to see such improvements. I might have been a vegan for only a couple months, but i’ve been avoiding any animal product in fashion or in makeup for years. Of course I still use makeup that is not vegan, or not cruelty free but i’m not buying any new products.

Some of you might wonder why some big brand still test on animal and one of the biggest reason is simple, China. It is mandatory for any brand of makeup to test on animal to be able to sell their products in China. Since they have a huge market some company prefere money over moral and prefer selling their product in bigger country istead of changing for a cruelty free alternative. At least some companies like Lush refuses to sell to China until they change their Law.

Of course not all faith in humanity is lost, the 28 countries of the European Union have banned animal testing, in 2009. Four years later, in march 2013, the EU also banned the sale of cosmetic products or ingrediant subject to new animal testing. Even though this doesn’t affect every animal testing that are done outside the territory most of the products are cruelty free. Some bigger company use their head office to test new ingrediants on animal and then use those products in a cruelty free franchise. But at least we’re progressing, what a relief!
