Animals are more than furry friends. They’re a gift from nature and the best friend mankind could ask for, which means we should take every opportunity to protect their rights and make beauty choices that reflect that respect.
Even if you aren’t a pet owner, take a second to think about what animal testing says about a product: They were worried about how it would react to human skin. Do yourself and all of our furry friends a favor by making the ethical choice and only choosing cruelty-free makeup brands :)
Lucky for you we’ve rounded up our top six fave picks. Here are 5 Cruelty-Free Makeup Brands you should know.
