With the abundance of cosmetic items available, it may feel at time overwhelming as to which brand, item, and hue you’re going to purchase.

There are also many additional brands on the market which meet these standards, though keep in mind that some parent companies may not be cruelty-free.

If you’re out shopping and in a bind and don’t have access to cruelty-free information, you can easily find this information as many (but not all) cruelty-free products will carry the cruelty-free bunny logo. They may also have a phrase stating “not tested on animals”. However, remember that cruelty-free and vegan do not mean the same thing. Just because a product is deemed cruelty-free, does not mean that it is vegan and it is important to read the list of ingredients to determine whether or not the product is actually vegan-friendly or not.
