How to Stay Cruelty-Free with Your Skincare

Everyone wants to minimize their negative impact, but that can be difficult when it comes to cosmetics. When you buy grocery store cosmetics or even professional grade cosmetics, not only may they be tested on animals, but their ingredients may be too. Here are a few ways to make sure your cosmetics are cruelty-free.

Look for Cruelty-Free Cosmetics

There are lists of cruelty-free cosmetics available; these are cosmetics that haven’t been tested on animals. While this isn’t fail proof (for reasons we’ll discuss below), this can give you a good starting point towards finding the right brands. You can look for the “Leaping Bunny” logo for brands that are certified cruelty-free.

Find Cosmetics With Few Ingredients

If you’re purchasing cosmetics with many ingredients, it’s likely that some of those ingredients were tested on animals. A product is cruelty-free if the product itself was not tested; it still may use purchased ingredients that were. You can minimize your chances of getting such a product by minimizing the ingredients in your product.

Often, a brand itself may be cruelty-free but it may be owned by a brand that is not cruelty free. Many major cosmetics companies own dozens upon dozens of brands, so you’ll still be funding a company that does do animal testing.

Egyptian Magic is an all natural, six ingredient formula that is completely cruelty-free; it has never and will never test on animals. If you’re looking for a moisturizer or skin care solution that doesn’t involve animal testing, visit the store at Egyptian Magic today.
