Cruelty -Free Brands VS Non-Cruelty-Free Brands
Many of us own or purchase beauty and hygienic brands that we utilize on a daily base. These many branded products that we apply to our bodies have experimented prior to finalizing the content. The question is that: Have you researched how the brands or products are manufactured prior to releasing it to consumers?
I would like to discuss a topic that some may know about and many others are not aware of…
Cruelty-Free Brands VS. Non-Cruelty-Free Brands that is contained in the beauty, skincare, and hygienic products. First of all, what is Cruelty-Free? Cruelty-Free is developed or manufactured products by methods that do for products or activities that do not harm or kill animals anywhere in the world.
However, FDA has not legalized this term for this animal rights movement. The term cruelty-free was first originated by Lady Dowding who persuaded manufacturers of fake furs to use the label “Beauty Without Cruelty” and went on to found the charity Beauty Without Cruelty in 1959. Later, in the 1970s, this term was popularized in the USA by Marcia Pearson who established the group “Fashion With Compassion”.
Non-Cruelty-Free brands are products or activities that have been practiced on animals prior to or after killing them.
For example, MAC cosmetics that many of us makeup lovers obsess over is not a Cruelty-Free Brand and due to the fact that it is partly owned by Estee Lauder, does not mean their products are not tested on animals. Since MAC, like Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Maybelline, and many other brands that are sold in China, by law, they are required to conduct animal testing.
Cruelty-Free Kitty labels could be found on brand products, such as cosmetics: Becca, Buxom, Tarte, NYX, Urban Decay, and many others. If you turn to the back of their packaging, you will find the Cruelty-Free bunny embedded.
As a consumer, if you’d like to know whether or not the products you are using on a daily bases is a Cruelty-Free brand or An Animal Testing Brand, I would advise that you visit www.crueltybrandkitty.com. On their website, you will discover a list of products from A-Z in both Cruelty-Free Brands and Brands that Test on Animals.
And if you are that individual who is curious to know how your products are being tested. Remember the next time you apply that mascara or that lipstick or even any hygienic products onto your body. Better yet, remember your pet!
