The Best Cruelty Free Makeup Brands

As the consumer, using money wisely to support great brands is extremely important.

When supporting a makeup brand and it’s products, it is important to do research on how that makeup is created and the beliefs behind the company. A makeup company can have great products that may not be produced in the most humane way. Cruelty-free makeup brands are companies that value great products and safety. For a makeup brand to actually be considered cruelty free, it means that the brand does not test any of their products on animals. Some makeup brands are still testing their products on animals and using extracts from beetles and other bugs to create certain pigments. Here are some makeup brands that sell amazing products and are 100% cruelty-free!
