Few days ago I shared a list of makeup and cosmetics brand that still testing on animals 🙁 that I saw in a post on Facebook . I saw that this list (at the bottom) belongs to an USA comprehensive website educating and making people aware about cruelty-free makeup and cosmetic brands all over the world. I had a glance and it looks really good site but of course I haven’t checked every single brand if is natural /organic product apart from cruelty-free.

Needless to say I totally encourage cruelty-free and neither do I use animal ingredients in my skincare making classes and bespoke products. But I think all these new awareness and conscientious about cruelty-free and vegan products tend to overlook other important facts that are harsh chemicals, toxins ingredients in these cruelty-free and vegan products that can be potentially harmful to us : humans and the environment . Our planet is currently suffering a massive contamination from plastic waste and skincare and cosmetics

I would like to clarify that NOT ALL cruelty-free and vegan products are natural and/organic  (in fact you can find many plastic /rubbish cheapy toxic ingredients) which are completely different concepts but you can actually find MANY -MOST of natural/organic makeup and organic products are vegan and cruelty-free by default.

In conclusion let not focused only in cruelty-free , vegan which is a huge step that I totally follow but instead, lets be conscious about getting a product that tick all the boxes :

  • Natural/organic
  • Vegan
  • Cruelty – free

The list above belongs to

Same way I tell my son who is strictly vegan that I totally respect : do not only check if the food you are eating is  animal origin , also be careful with the sugar, colorants, preservatives , refined processed rubbish food that you will end up eating only  because that food is vegan. Not all vegan food is good.

I guess is like everything it is all depends on quality ,authenticity and  honesty of the brand

Thanks for reading

  1. Apparently the Chinese government mandates animal testing for imported skincare and make-up. It’s a huge market, which is probably why these luxury brands are still doing animal testing ????
