Cruelty free products are manufactured without harming or killing animals, especially skincare or beauty that do not test on animals. The world is slowly turning away from animal-testing, which are often painful and cause the death of millions of animals every year, and towards alternative testing methodsMany countries like India and those in the European Union have banned the sales of cosmetic products that use animal testing or are in the process.

However, many beauty product brands in our local U.S. drugstores and department stores still use animal testing. These tests commonly include rabbits, mice, rats and guinea pigs inhaling or being exposed to chemicals that cause unnecessary mutilations and suffering. Although The Humane Cosmetics Act was introduced in 2014, there is still no U.S. national law banning animal testing on beauty products. Additionally, China still requires animal testing for cosmetics that are imported into the country. Thus, many large cosmetic brands still use or started using again animal testing in order to continue reaching China’s large market.

Popular brands like Aveeno, Cover Girl, Dove, L’Oréal Paris, M.A.C., Neutrogena and Nivea still use animal testing. Here is a more comprehensive list of popular brands that uses animal testing.

Each and every one of us has the power to voice what we value and support by the purchases we make. Where your dollars go speaks volumes. Let’s choose cruelty-free.

In a nutshell, cruelty-free products are products that are not tested on animals. Instead, companies use other alternative methods such as using artificial skin to assure products are safe for consumers.
