Cruelty Free Skincare Products For Beginners

Deciding to make the leap and start using cruelty free products is a huge and often life-changing decision. It’s a wonderful thing to do if you want to become a more environmentally conscious consumer. Choosing cruelty-free skincare will not only make you feel great on the inside, but your skin will be glowing on the outside too. With so many brands and products claiming to be cruelty free and organically produced it can be confusing to know how to start. Here is a great guide to help you find and introduce these wonderful products into your skincare regime.

Do your research

The best way to find out a brand or company's values and outlook on animal testing is by doing plenty of research. There are some fantastic lists available, which show all cruelty free products. These are continually updated when a new product has been found. Always ensure these are from reliable sources when printing them out online. These lists will also tell you the names of brands that have been known to use animal testing on their products. This can be an eye-opening experience, and you will be surprised how many top named brands still use these techniques. For more info on natural and cruelty-free products, visit the Lush or Tropic skincare website.

Another way of determining if a product is cruelty-free is by looking for a bunny logo on it’s packaging. The leaping bunny is the most internationally used symbol and is a quicker way of knowing a product is free from animal testing.

Introduce the products gradually

It’s best to start this process gradually as it’s going to take time to research and acquire the right skincare products for you. You may have to try a few out before you decide if it’s suitable for your skin type. It can be tempting once you’ve made this big decision to get rid of all of your current skincare products. Even your favourite ones. This can cause a lot of waste and additional expense so don’t feel pressured to do this. You could find it too overwhelming and lose interest. So it’s best to introduce new cruelty free products when you’re current ones run out. That way it’s a more gradual change and will be easier on your budget.

Think outside of the box

There are so many fabulous brands out there that are not necessarily found in department and high street stores. Watch product reviews on Youtube to find out about a cruelty free skincare product you’ve never heard of. Or go on a forum and ask for advice on smaller brands that could offer you suitable skincare alternatives. You may have to order abroad for your products or there may be a local supplier that you weren’t aware of. Don’t be afraid to try anything as there could be wonderful natural products out there that have yet to be discovered.

You should now be able to start your cruelty-free journey to great looking skin. Always consider your skin type when choosing products and research before you buy. It’s as easy as that!
