As a pet owner, it is hard to imagine terrible things being done to cats, dogs, monkeys, and other innocent furry friends. Unfortunately, the cruel practice of testing products on animals is still occurring today. Many amazing brands have taken the lead in saying “no” to animal testing. Whatever beauty products you use daily, you can be sure that they can cause good for you without causing harm to another. “Cruelty-free” means there was no animal testing done, “vegan” means they are no animal products used in the product. Look for this seal of approval when it comes to using cruelty-free products:
There are more than 500 companies in Peta’s database that are 100 percent vegan and cruelty-free. Here are a few favorites:
