So you are aware of how unnecessary and cruel animal testing is, and want to switch to cruelty free products but where do you start?
There are currently so many brands available in the beauty market (some cruelty free, some not) so knowing what brands to use can get quite confusing! Here are four tips to help your transition to cruelty free products as simple as can be...
1. Don't throw anything out.
Just because you want to switch to cruelty free products doesn't mean that you have got to throw out all your current products even if they aren't cruelty free- Please respect the environment! If you really do not want to finish up your old cosmetics, then maybe consider donating them to a friend or family member who would appreciate them.
2. Make it a gradual process.
Making the transition to cruelty free products can work out to be quite expensive, especially if everything has to change; makeup, skincare, haircare, home cleaning supplies etc! Instead, try to gradually change your products as they run out- this is a much more affordable and sensible way to switch to cruelty free.
3. Know what brands are cruelty free.
This is of course the most important tip for your transition. There are so many amazing brands available in the beauty market that offer cruelty free products so really knowing your options is the key to success. I'll pop a list of some below!
- Kat Von D
- Charlotte Tilbury
- Cover FX
- Yes To
- Nip & Fab
The easiest way to know what brands are cruelty free is to know your bunnies.
4. Know your bunnies.
On most packaging, you’ll find a little bunny logo. These logos tell you that the brand is cruelty-free.
If you decide to switch to cruelty free products then remember to have fun with it! Try as many new brands as possible and have lots of fun doing it! Don’t shy away from smaller companies- they produce the same, high quality products for (most of the time) a fraction of high end prices!
Until next time!
