Alex is an esthetician from St. Catharines, Ontario with a passion for makeup and beauty.

It seems like these days, most people are making an effort to use products that are strictly vegan or cruelty free. I have done research to create the complete Cruelty free shopping guide for all your cosmetic needs. The question is, why test on animals? Animal testing is a horrible, inhumane epidemic, but some brands still use such methods due to cheaper exportation of products. In fact, animal testing is still required by law in China! (excluding Hong Kong)... most brands that do test on animals are mass produced in China. Fortunately, more and more companies are passing the law and earning their "Leaping Bunny, PETA, or Cruelty Free" label of approval.

Everyone can do their part to prevent or boycott animal testing by purchasing brands that are cruelty free (list below) and being smart shoppers. Never settle for the brand's "claim" to be cruelty free unless you know for sure. If something doesn't look right, it probably isn't. Do online research and read the list below to find out which of your favourite cosmetic brands do not test on animals (and which ones do).

Look for the Labels!
