How to Find Cruelty-Free Makeup in Your Area

The following article was written by Vanessa Cunningham.

Like any new adventure, when you’re embarking on the journey to remove cruelty from your beauty routine, it can understandably be a bit intimidating. However, purchasing cruelty-free makeup is easier than ever, and you can find a variety of quality products at various retail chains across the country!

Simply by choosing products that were not tested on animals over products that were made using cruel and archaic tests on animals, you’ll be saving animals’ lives and showing companies that you do not support businesses that choose greed over compassion.

Keep in mind that this list explains where you might be able to find the brands, but each individual store carries different products, so you can call ahead to see what brands they carry or just pop in and explore!

To help you out, we’ve broken it down into two easy-to-read lists. Happy shopping!
