This is the ugly side of the makeup industry- animal testing. There are a few cruelty free makeup brands available all around but it is sad that most of the makeup we put on our face do not belong to cruelty free makeup brands. There are two types of testing when it comes to makeup. The first one is when brands test their finished and complete products on animals and the second type is when brands purchase their ingredients from suppliers that test on animals. This plain unfair because what do animals even have to do with makeup? Thankfully there are some brands that are cruelty free when it comes to both their ingredients and their final products. We have them for you right below so that you don’t go through the trouble of looking through different cosmetic stores. Keep an eye out for the cruelty free makeup brands below and upgrade your makeup the right way

I had a couple of products from this brand in the past and I would say they have better quality than the other high end brands out there however back then I wasn’t aware of their cruelty free policy. Their makeup line is absolutely free from any kind of toxins or chemicals. Since I have very dry skin the products were very hydrating for my skin. I’ll definitely be getting more Ecco Bella products when I come across them!
