10 Cruelty-Free Beauty Products

10 Cruelty-Free Beauty Products

Because of China’s animal testing regulations, we have to make ethical choices when it comes to our beauty products. As recommended by PETA, beware of claims that the “product is not tested on animals”, which can hide the fact that its ingredients are tested on animals. Also, look out for “this company does not test on animals”, as that can be a cover-up for a brand that contracts out its testing to other companies.

There’s an easy way to go cruelty-free, with so many animal-friendly brands at SkinStore. Browse 10 of our favorite products by just some of these brands.

    Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kind Avocado + Quinoa Co-Wash

    When you decode the brand name Briogeo you get “Brio”, an Italian word that means “vibrant and full of life” and represents bustling New York City where the brand was born, and“Geo” – a Latin word meaning “of Earth and nature,” which indicates the pure, yet potent, recipes of each formula.

    Briogeo takes beauty back to basics, offering high-performance haircare that’s naturally based but yields powerful results.

    Try this cruelty-free brand’s Be Gentle, Be Kind Avocado + Quinoa Co-Wash – a non-lathering, sulfate-free, gluten-free, vegan cleansing conditioner that lifts away dirt and impurities from the hair, while rehydrating, nourishing, and detangling.
