No Need To Feel Guilty, These Local Brands Are Cruelty-Free

When you see a brand proudly raising a "cruelty-free" banner, be proud of them too for cruelty-free is a label by brands that do not do not use nor test on animals. According to PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), companies use animals to collect data if ever a customer sues the company for any negative or harmful effects brought about by their product. The tests are done at the expense of animals like rats, bunnies, guinea pigs, and dogs.

For makeup products, you can easily check online if it’s furry-friendly from the "cruelty-free" claim, or if it's certified by organizations like PETA, Leaping Bunny, and Cruelty-Free Kitty.

But thanks to alternative ingredients (jojoba, shea butter, and essential oils the world now has brands making it possible—even our local brands are stepping up for the cause! See what these brands are below.

Blk Cosmetics

Anne Curtis' love for animals manifests even on her own makeup line. In fact, proceeds from one of its recent collection, BLK Travels goes to the World Wildlife Fund. Way to go!

Colourette Cosmetics

A homegrown brand popular on social media, Colourette Cosmetics' aims for products suited for every Filipina. Their products are paraben-free (a commonly used preservative ingredient in cosmetics but harmful to the skin) and top it all cruelty-free too. The brand prides itself on creating multi-way products (one product for the eyes, cheeks, and lips) and innovating oil-based lip tints.

Detail Cosmetics

If you thought a cruelty-free product might stumble on quality, you probably haven’t tried Detail Cosmetics. The brand’s products are highly pigmented and affordable. A solid proof a brand can have the best of both worlds.

Pink Sugar Cosmetics

Here’s another good thing about Pink Sugar Cosmetics—aside from its affordability and hulas-free components—they are part of PETA's Beauty Without Bunnies Program! This means the brand doesn’t test nor uses animals in their products. Way to go!

Paprika Cosmetics

Even though it only started last 2017, Paprika Cosmetics isn’t only animal-testing free but is environmentally safe too. Meaning it’s sustainably made and didn’t harm an ecosystem for its production. Their first released product is a spice-inspired palette loved by Pinoy beauty-gurus online for its intense color payoff.

In reality, cruelty-free products aren’t limited nor hard to find as anyone thought. Let’s see beyond the purpose but the compassion behind on making beauty a better place because it is possible to produce effective products which won’t jeopardize others. Kudos!
