Why do makeup brands test on animals?
Are you as puzzled as I am about why do some companies continue to test products on animals?
According to PETA non-cruelty-free makeup brands test on animals to provide data that they can use to defend themselves when they are sued by injured consumers. Even after some courts have ruled that the FDA has failed to show that the results of animal tests can be extrapolated to humans. Meaning the unreliability of animal tests allows these brands to put virtually any product on the market!

If That Wasn’t Enough
And if that wasn’t enough to worry about when choosing makeup products. Many of us also have other concerns such as:
- Environmental Impact
- Safe Ingredients
- How Natural It Is
3 Affordable Cruelty-Free Makeup Brands
If any of these worries are weighing on your mind, you’re not alone. Here are three cruelty-free makeup products that won’t cost the earth – or too much money! And they are practical enough to beautifully meet your needs no matter if you’re going out with friends or starting the workday.
Poppy Austin Vegan & Cruelty-Free Mascara
Do you want a top mascara that doesn’t break the bank? And is cruelty-free? That’s what Poppy Austin promises, and plenty of reviewers on Amazon agree. The gentle formula is made from organic ingredients, including sustainably harvested plant waxes. These natural plant ingredients also have restorative properties that can promote thicker, fuller lashes with an amazing silky feeling.
Reviewers were particularly impressed with how this mascara never clumps, and how easily the applicator separates the lashes. Lashes are in better condition even between applications, and the mascara stays on throughout the day- no accidental “panda eyes” when you least expect it!
BWC (Beauty Without Cruelty) Supercover Cream Concealer
BWC was established in 1959 by a dedicated animal rights pioneer. Their motto is “ethical beauty” and the company has been involved in campaigning against animal testing for decades. Today sees BWC successfully promoting vegan and cruelty-free makeup products ideal for modern life.
Their Supercover concealer pencil is one of those makeup essentials that can replace several more expensive products. The pencil provides a wide application to help cover up spots, blemishes and problem skin to leave a flawless complexion. It’s particularly recommended for disguising those dark areas under the eyes – whether that’s because you’ve been up all night with the baby or partying!
And the ingredients include an expert blend of natural waxes and oils to provide a super soft blend that goes onto the skin nice and easy. Setting powder can be used to finish off your look, but this concealer looks great without. BWC recommends regular sharpening of the pencil for the best and most precise application.
Adore Bodylife Cruelty-Free Mineral Foundation
Adore makes a point of ensuring all their products are completely cruelty-free. Even today, as many as ten million animals die from animal testing each year. Adore is at the cutting edge of transforming the cosmetics industry into something kinder.
This mineral foundation is kind to the skin, too. The finely milled loose powder provides even coverage without smothering the skin. The ingredients are blended to help avoid breakouts, making this a great everyday makeup product. No more risk of spots after a full day wearing foundation! This is one of those ideal makeup products for any beauty bag: cruelty-free, kind to the skin and easy to use
