Hey y’all! I stumbled upon this article from BH Cosmetics last night and I thought I would share it.
Cruelty Free is a growing trend in makeup and a lot of brands just haven’t caught up which is a real shame. I personally stopped using MAC years ago because they are not cruelty free and I never LOVED their products to begin with. If they step out of the stone-age I might give them another try.
The article lists some companies like MAC that have not stepped up yet and it also lists the companies that have like e.l.f. Cosmetics.
I know it seems trendy to be on the vegan and cruelty free train, but truth be told I think this is only the tip of the iceberg on questioning our products and the ethics of companies.
Here’s the deal: I personally think that if we have to test on people then we start to look at better ingredients ( NOT TO MENTION NO MORE ANIMAL ABUSE GUYSSSSSS!!!!) Maybe more people will start to question the quality and what are they putting on their skin; the largest organ of the body that absorbs everything. Hey I know most of you already get this so I wont preach a whole lot. I still have a lot to learn about it anyways.
I also hope that on this path they will continue to move towards sustainability and environmentally friendly packaging.
