Hidden behind fun marketing tactics and a growing social media presence, many major beauty brands are able to disguise their usage of animal materials in their products. As a consumer it is easy to be persuaded by promotions that are literally popping up everywhere in our daily lives. Fortunately, with the growing awareness of cruelty-free practices and natural makeup products, many are considering other alternatives to their beauty routine.
Luckily, vegan cosmetics are just as amazing as mainstream beauty products, except they do not contain any ingredients that have been sourced from animals. These are also cruelty-free, meaning that they weren’t tested on live animals. All vegan beauty products are made distinguishable with a small bunny logo, representing the absence of animal products and harmful practices in the creation of the product.
