Cruelty Free Shopping Guide: McCabe’s Pharmacy

McCabes is one of Ireland’s most beloved pharmacies. This isn’t your typical, medical pharmacy, as the company always stock in the newest, hip brands for all ages to try. The pharmacy widely supports the Irish beauty industry and stocks brands like SOSU by SJ, Aimee Connolly and Cocoa Brown, to name a few. But how many of the brands available in this cool and groovy pharmacy are actually cruelty-free?

Please note that the brands that are ‘pending’ are brands that are cruelty-free, however I am currently running maintenance checks to ensure that each company can ensure that their raw ingredients are not tested on animals, that their suppliers and manufacturers still don’t test on animals, and that they have no plans to move into the Chinese market.

Flawless and Pawless is Ireland's cruelty-free cosmetic blog created by 23 year-old cosmetic expert, Ailsha Davey. With eight years working in the beauty industry in Dublin as a professional make-up artist and cosmetic expert, Ailsha discovered some of the horrors of cosmetic animal testing- and the lack of knowledge within the Irish market about it. Flawless and Pawless has been set up to spread awareness across Ireland of cosmetic animal testing, as well as to provide suggestions for cruelty-free alternatives to the Irish market's favourite cosmetic products.
