So this post here is my findings on companies who are Animal Cruelty free and / or have Vegan products on sale too. Many are swapping to products and companies who are against Animal testing.
Since last year I also decided to swap my make up to cruelty free as well as my house hold products which is still a on going progress. Being a person who respects and adores animals the thought of some sweet creature being tested on for luxury or high street branded make up just to be smeared on my face for me, just to enhance my features at the cost of such torture .I will be honest it boils my blood and the process is totally not Kawaii!
I can understand the need for it for health and safety however in this day and age already there is many, many products already proven safe to use already ,so there is really no need to re-test over and over again? I can understand for medical reasons that tests need to be done and such .Even though I personally reach for herbal alternatives myself before going to the doctors. As this could save some ones life at the end of the day. But for make up. I feel its not quite right to put an animal through so much treatment just for a pretty lip gloss... This is all my personal thoughts and if you don't agree then I suggest you stop reading now and move on with your day.
So I decided to make this list for those looking for both low budget and easy to obtain to high end brands. So lets look at some high street low costing budget brands that are easy to obtain. But remember that cruelty-free certification is done on a voluntary basis, not all cruelty-free companies are certified. So it is worth doing your own research
Here is my list which I will be updating over time and keeping it all up to date so this is dated for this year (2016.) I have listed brands who don't test them selves but are owned by a parent company. Most have on their claims stated on their websites. Most of these brands are ones I have used or have heard of.
