Here are my Top Five Cruelty-Free makeup brands listed, all confirmed on the Leaping Bunny website. Whether you’re looking for bold colors or natural and easy multi-tasking products, this list has you covered. All of these brands have cruelty-free cosmetics and all of them have vegan options for those that abstain from using any animal products. What I loved most about researching for this list is finding out why the creators of these brands prioritized cruelty-free. It’s an obvious statement to say a lot if not most people prefer to know their products aren’t tested on animals. Knowing which brands prioritized that out of a love of animals rather than a desire to bring consumers what they want was really interesting, from my perspective anyway.
Obviously, I couldn’t possibly fit all of the cruelty-free makeup brands into this one video, so I highly recommend you look at the Leaping Bunny website to find more brands that are animal friendly. I did list an additional three brands that have quite a bit of controversy, but that are noted for their cruelty-free status and a good amount of vegan products. At the end of the day, you tell people what you value by spending your dollars on products that don’t utilize animal cruelty for research, but, if you have a good amount of products from brand that aren’t certified, it is a process to switch over. Furthermore, the larger brands that tout their animal-friendly business practices often send their products overseas to countries like China that require animal testing before products can be sold on the market, so it’s really up to you to do your research and decide if that’s something you can live with or if you consider that just as bad.
