How To Shop For The Best Cruelty-Free Mascaras This Summer
We all know that some beauty brands are notorious for claiming that their products are not tested on animals. Yet, proving the legitimacy of these claims at times can be tricky. Especially if you are not sure how to shop for cruelty-free mascaras in the first place.
That is why we are listing our top tips for helping you find the best cruelty-free makeup this summer below.
Know Your Logos
One of the most telling signs that the makeup product you have just picked up in your hand is cruelty-free is by the logos on its packaging. Make sure to look out for PETA’s bunny logo or the Leaping Bunny logo which is verified by CCIC. Both of these indicate that the product you are buying is ethically manufactured.
Research Ingredients You Don’t Recognize
Lots of cosmetics brands love exclaiming when their product features a new ingredient. These new and improved miracle ingredients are always marketed heavily to keep customers interested. But that doesn’t necessarily guarantee that they are ethical.
Look out for ingredients such as lanolin, cystine and urea in your products. Reading the label and not sure what the ingredient is? Then do your research. Taking the time to properly read about the ingredients that make up your mascara’s formula is always beneficial.
Only Choose Brands You Trust
Numerous brands such as Lush are now priding themselves on being fully against animal testing and the use of animal ingredients in their products. While with other brands on the high street, it is harder to know exactly how truthful they are when it comes to being ethically made.
Our advice is to go with a brand that you know for certain is a champion of animal rights. These brands will often base their philosophy on these beliefs and will make it known for all to see on their websites (Not just in the fine print or on product labels). Here at the GreenLine Market, we are committed to offering environment and animal-friendly cosmetic products.
