New Year, New Products

With the new year in full effect, bettering yourself and your lifestyle is everyone’s go to resolution for the year. Between dreadful diets and rigorous workouts controlling your life these past few weeks of January, it might be easier to make a simple switch from some of your not so good products to ones that are equally great supporting ethical intentions too! Did you know that animal testing is simply not needed anymore? Cosmetic companies can choose from over 7,000 ingredients that are already proven safe, but instead some choose new innovative ones to increase profits at the cost of these innocent animals' lives. Plus, with numerous governments banning animal testing worldwide, most cruelty-free products are just as affordable as the others, so why not make the change?

For your makeup needs there are tons of options, expensive and not so expensive that support the right cause! There are high end products and multiple drug-store brands you can try that are inexpensive and great too! Don’t forget your essential daily products you use too! Make sure to switch simple things like toothpaste to your household cleaners. Here are some simple product switches to cruelty-free based brands that will help you fill that new years resolution!
