Confession time: I’m a TOTAL cosmetics addict. Makeup, hair serums, skin creams—I’ll take them ALL … but only if they’re cruelty-free, of course. 🙂 There’s nothing beautiful about paying for a product that’s been tested on animals. Hundreds of thousands of living beings are poisoned, blinded, and killed every year in tests for cosmetics and personal-care products.

So what can you do to help? Purchase products from only cruelty-free companies. By doing so, you’ll be helping to end cruel tests on animals while sending a powerful message to the companies that do still conduct these tests.


Check out the list of companies on our cruelty-free cosmetics database.
