The Best Cruelty-Free Beauty Brands

The Best Cruelty-Free Beauty Brands

I’ve written a lot about natural and organic beauty brands, eco-friendly brands, and even ethically sound brands, but I thought I would share a post about the best cruelty-free beauty brands out there since I know many of you are vegetarian and vegan. Besides, even if you are not vegan or vegetarian, it’s always nice to use brands that are kind to animals, am I right?

    There are a lot more companies included in this post than I thought there would be and the products looks fantastic. Is makes you wonder why if they can manage to be cruelty free, why isn’t there more of a movement to force the big companies to be? Thanks for joining the #weekendblogshare

    I love your headline. Cosmetics CAN be cruel and dry out the skin and get in the pores.
