Your Beauty Should Not Come At The Cost Of Other Beings

 

Choosing a brand of make-up can be an extremely difficult task. Women have to consider the price, quality, how long it lasts, etc. However, one factor that may sometimes go overlooked is whether the brand is a cruelty-free brand. Despite the increasing number of alternatives, cosmetic companies continue to expose millions of animals to harmful chemicals every year for product testing. What I find unreasonable about the use of animals is that humans are biologically different to animals and thus our reactions to the chemicals may vary widely. Therefore, if the tests are there to ensure that the products are safe for human use, surely animal testing must not be that effective.

Here is a list of all the make-up companies that continue to use animal testing:

  • ALMAY
  • ARTISTRY (AMWAY)
  • AVON
  • BENEFIT
  • BOBBI BROWN
  • BORGHESE
  • BURBERRY
  • CALVIN KLEIN
  • CHANEL
  • CHAPSTICK
  • CLE DE PEAU
  • CLINIQUE
  • COVERGIRL
  • DEMETER
  • DIOR
  • DOLCE & GABBANA
  • ESTEE LAUDER
  • FLIRT
  • GIORGIO ARMANI
  • GIVENCHY
  • GUERLAIN
  • HELENA RUBINSTEIN
  • L’OREAL
  • LANCÔME
  • MAC
  • MAKE UP FOR EVER

  • SHISEIDO
  • SHU UEMURA
  • SINFUL COLORS
  • SEPHORA

Many of you might be thinking that since all the major companies are using animals, then it is impossible to find a cruelty-free one and you might as well just purchase your make-up products from companies that you know of. However, this is not true. There are many high end companies that do not use animals for product testing, such as:
