There is usually a strong misconception when it comes to making conscious decisions about buying ethical cosmetic brands. “It is hard to find” or “It is too expensive” may be some of the things that pop into your head. On the contrary, there are a lot of companies nowadays that have taken a conscientious route when it comes to their products. Here at BeautyDesk, we went ahead and did the research for you. So what constitutes a cruelty-free product and where can you find it?
According to the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), a company is considered cruelty-free due to their commitment to manufacturing products without harming any animals and that neither they nor their ingredient suppliers conduct, commission or pay for any tests on animals for ingredients, formulations, or finished products.
