It’s guilt-free beauty.
Have you noticed? more and more beauty brands are becoming cruelty free. According this Allure article, California became one of the first states that passed a law banning the sales of any products that are tested on animals to be effective starting January 1, 2020. We’re so excited that more companies are taking part in this movement against animal testing and that’s why we’ve gathered some of our favorite cruelty-free brands with some of their latest products.
The Body Shop Body Yogurts

The Body Shop is a brand that has been advocating for beauty without cruelty since 1989. The brand just released a line of refreshing gel-cream body yogurts with hyaluronic acid promising 48 hours of lightweight moisture within seconds of putting it on. While the brand is vegetarian because some of their products use honey, these yogurts are 100% vegan formulated with organic almond milk from Alicante, Spain.

LUSH Cosmetics is another brand that has been long time trailblazer when it comes to cruelty-free advocacy.
