When I fist started transitioning my makeup collection from cruel tested products to cruelty free, I really struggled to find products that were in my budget and didn’t test. But after a while of shopping and researching I now know where to shop. Honestly the fact is, if we buy products tested on animals we are encouraging this cruel practice, how is that ok? How is it ok that 3.87 million animals were tested on in the UK alone in 2014? The simple thing is that it’s not ok and there needs to be a change. If everyone refused to buy cruel products the brands would have no choice but to evolve. Company’s need to evolve into the modern and realise all lives are equal,
I know that a lot of you are starting to take notice and I would like to help you with that and vice versa, if you can help me in anyway me let me know as I am still learning too.
