Researching Cruelty-Free Skincare and Makeup Brands

I'm just getting in some research right now about cruelty-free skincare and makeup brands and am actually surprised by the variety. I thought there would be only a handful but I'm really excited and pleased that so many companies/brands are committed to being cruelty-free!  I'm not going to be fanatic about it but at least it's a start to being better educated about the philosophy behind certain brands. 

PETA's website has a list of skincare and cosmetics brands that are cruelty free. Paula's Choice website also has a comprehensive list of companies that do and don't test on animals. But I think it's just easier to remember that if the company or brand is sold or available for retail in Mainland China, the company or brand does have to submit their products for animal testing. It's required by law over there.

I'm a little sad because brands that I've always wanted to try, like Laneige, Cle de Peau, Sisley Paris, or even brands that seem so natural and good for you like Aveeno all do animal testing. 

I guess it's good that I've got a few cruelty-free brands lined up, such as:

100% Pure
Avalon Organics
Burt's Bees
Yes To
Tom's of Maine

Just to name a few off the top of my head. Additionally, I could always go to Whole Foods and pick up the ingredients needed to make my own skincare. 

I'm getting really excited about this!  I'll post more on this new adventure of mine as I learn more. 

Have a great Memorial Holiday!
