Animal lovers can have a hard time buying makeup due to the fact that many beauty brands test on animals and use their by-products.
Fortunately, now that society has become more aware of the cruelty that goes into some beauty products, more brands are making it a point to be cruelty-free and celebrate our furry friends. Some beauty brands even make animal-centric products!
For example, there are tons of animal-themed Paul & Joe Beaute luxury makeup products like printed cases, lipsticks and more! These make the perfect unique addition to any animal lover’s makeup collection.
According to the Humane Society, animal testing can involve rubbing chemicals on animals and feeding them toxins — which is inhumane and unethical on many accounts. In fact, The Humane Society estimates that anywhere between 100,000 and 200,000 animals suffer and die annually for cosmetic purposes around the world.
Keep this in mind next time you consider purchasing a product that’s been tested on animals. If you are shopping for a gift for an animal lover or are one yourself, there are countless quirky and cruelty-free makeup products on the market that you will want to snatch right away.
