RED ONLINE - THE BEST VEGAN BEAUTY PRODUCTSShopify API @ 2021-09-29 16:21:38 +0100
So if you've gone vegan and don't know where to start, or you just want to be more ethically conscious when you're beauty shopping, we've compiled our list of the very best vegan beauty products.
You may be wondering what the cosmetics industry has to do with animals, but they're actually very closely linked.
For many years, animals have been used for cosmetic testing; you may have seen videos circulated online of rabbits kept in tiny cages with toxic chemicals in their eyes.
These practices are increasingly being seen as unacceptable and unnecessary, and the European Union banned cosmetic animal testing in 2013.
And while some brands don't themselves test on animals, they are owned by parent companies that sell in these countries, meaning those too are often no-go's for ethical vegans.
This can seem limiting, but luckily there are plenty of brands that are completely cruelty-free, and this number appears to be increasing as animal rights and veganism are becoming central to social consciousness. Cult American brands like Kat von D and Jeffree Star are 100% cruelty-free, as well as drugstore European brands B Beauty (Superdrug's own brand), Sleek and Collection. Higher-end brands including Hourglass, Chantecaille and Cover FX are also cruelty free.
