Going Cruelty Free // Pretty Harmless | Part 1

6923442-girl-dogs

I’ve been transitioning to vegetarian for a couple of months now and have decided to go cruelty free with my makeup too, as well as exploring new foods.

cruelty-freeadjective(of cosmetics or other commercial products) manufactured or developed by methods which do not involve cruelty to animals.

I don’t think I’m alone when I say I have turned a blind eye to the real issue of animal testing and have been using products for my own vanity, which have been used to torture animals.

Animal testing is generally illegal in the UK, however if it is required by law, a lot of companies test their products on animals.  Most companies also sell in China, which by law must have products tested on animals.

Technology is advancing every day and by now should be able to replace the need to test on animals and if we all support cruelty free brands, hopefully others will follow suit.

The key is ensuring the ingredients used are not tested on animals, whether the final product is or is not.  The easiest and fastest way to check the status of products when shopping is looking at their logos.
