29 Cool Ways to Go Cruelty Free

Beauty and cleanliness...without cruelty.

Animal testing is designed to ensure the safety of products we humans use. While the FDA requires these tests for products containing certain chemicals, it’s not necessary that the cosmetics, household products and perfumes we use be tested this way. As far as cosmetics go, companies simply choose animal testing as the most convenient method of proving safety, even though other methods are available.

By opting for cosmetic brands that take a more conscientious path to product safety testing, we keep our makeup bags cruelty-free. By choosing organic cleaning products, we can keep our homes clean without harming animals. Check out these 29 cruelty-free products!
