Cruelty Free Beauty- 3 Simple Steps to Make the Change

Cruelty Free cosmetics are having a serious moment globally and we could not be more excited! Research by Cruelty Free International suggests that at least 115 million animals may be used in experiments worldwide each year, often used and killed for research purposes If you believe in putting animal welfare before big business and profit you can help the cause by going cruelty free and spreading the word. Consumers are rapidly becoming more informed on the cruel animal testing that is rampant amongst some of the world's biggest beauty brands and deciding to back ethical brands with their money and support. We made the switch to only using and featuring cruelty-free make up, skincare and fragrance brands here at Grace With Love Blog approximately a year and a half ago. Without doubt ever since one of the most popular questions we receive is how can I go cruelty-free too? You will be thrilled to hear that going cruelty free with your cosmetics is waaaaaaay easier than you may think, so we have broken it down into a simple three step routine with helpful resources included too! Yay!
