So, what exactly is cruelty-free skincare?
Cruelty-free skincare means that the ingredients used in the product aren't tested on animals.
Okay, so what's the difference between vegan & cruelty-free?
Cruelty-free is different from vegan skincare. Vegan skincare does not use any animal products, but it MAY have been tested on animals. Cruelty-free products might use animal products such as honey, beeswax, pearl extracts and more.
So, as we are passionate about this cause, let us highlight some reasons why you should switch out your old skincare for cruelty-free ones.
Animal testing for cosmetics and skincare is unnecessary
Big cosmetic companies already have a list of over 7,000 ingredients that are already proven to be safe. More humane alternatives are out there and technology has made them only better and more accurate. These include Vitro diagnostics, cell culture tests and computer modelling. There is sufficient existing safety data to render animal testing for products obsolete.
It’s more sustainable
Being more mindful of what we consume is always a good thing. Moreover, animal testing labs produce considerable quantities of toxic waste that is extremely damaging to the environment. Plus, with mindful consumption, we buy only the things we need, reducing waste.
Saves lives, quite literally
The influx of cruelty-free products means that companies are slowly but surely adopting more ethical practices and shutting down animal labs, sparing lives. This helps preserve eco-spheres and prevents species extinction. A lot of cruelty-free companies also donate to green causes!
It’s better for your skin
Cruelty-free skincare uses fewer chemicals than most animal-tested brands. These ingredients are tried and tested over a long time and have been proven safe through other methods of testing. Plus, you don’t have to live with the death of a cute bunny on your conscience!
You’ll be supporting local businesses
A lot of famous brands test on animals. Switching to local, cruelty-free brands help support causes close to your heart. You’ll be contributing to your country’s economy as well. You will have a plethora of brands to pick from, as more and more companies are choosing to forgo animal testing.
Plus, there is the added benefit of feeling great knowing that you’ve made a positive difference in the world! If you want to know if your favourite brands are testing on animals, click here and type in the brand name. It makes for a pretty comprehensive database of brands all around the world.
