Why Cruelty-Free?

If you would like official facts and statistics on animal testing, I would recommend checking out Cruelty Free Kitty, PETA or Cruelty-Free International. These would be the main sites from where I source my information in order to have full confidence that my facts are straight.

When we think about cruelty-free cosmetics, I think that, for many of us, we assume these products are more expensive than our usual favourite products. But do not fear! Cruelty-free cosmetics tend to actually be within everyone’s budget. For example, I was thrilled to discover that every time I walk into a Penneys store in Ireland, I can treat myself to crazy cheap and great quality cruelty-free brands like Essence, Catrice, E.L.F. and Wet N’ Wild. I’m also delighted that, when Christmas time comes around and I want to buy some fancier cosmetics as presents, I can still indulge in the luxury of many designer cosmetic brands including Charlotte Tilbury, Kat Von D, Liz Earle and Inglot.

Being cruelty-free is much easier than you think. No matter which pharmacy, department store or cosmetic store you go to, I can 100% guarantee that you will find at least one cruelty-free brand in it.

Just a few of the benefits of being cruelty-free:

  1. Opting for cruelty-free brands will save a lot of money in your wallet as you will become more aware of what you are spending your money on.

2) You are helping to save the environment, the economy and the world’s wildlife.

3) Most cruelty-free cosmetics are full of natural, good-for-you ingredients and are free of nasty chemicals which can damage your skin and cause breakouts.

4) You are not only helping to save the lives of bunnies, mice and rats, but you are also helping to save the lives of dogs, cats, monkeys, baboons, squirrels, and ferrets.

5) Basically, you’re doing yourself, animals and the world itself a very good deed!
