Hey Social Good
What does cruelty-free mean? According to Oxford Languages, cruelty-free products are commercial items manufactured or developed by methods that do not involve experimentation on animals. According to Cruelty Free International, over 115 million animals are being used for animal testing worldwide each year.
Demand for cruelty-free products, especially in cosmetics, is increasing as the animal rights movement grows. This demand is causing the rise in popularity of certified cruelty-free brands such as Juice Beauty and Dr. Bronners (both featured on this list)! These brands do not use animals to test their products and value sustainability.
Why should you pick cruelty-free products? The cruelty of animal testing is unfathomable, and unnecessary, due to the wide variety of proven safe cosmetic ingredients (7,000+) and the numerous alternative (cruelty-free) ingredient testing options. By buying cruelty-free products and “voting with your money,” you can send a loud message to companies that still use animal testing and make a real difference.
