I've heard that there are lots of cosmetic items that sprung from animal cruelty (like animal testing), or that use animal products in them. Does anyone know where I can find a good list of what make-up products further animal cruelty, what exactly happens with those products, and also a list of alternative products? What does everyone here do about cosmetics?<br><br><br><br>
(Also, sorry if this is the wrong forum, I wasn't sure where to put it, you can move it if it goes better somewhere else. ^.^)

I use to be a make-up junkie, until I found out the horrors behind all the animal testing. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> Now I'm happy to say that I don't wear any make-up covering these pretty cheeks. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
I still wear lip gloss from Urban Decay (which is against animal testing).

Learn to make your own! That's what i do so i know what goes in them and how they were created. You can make a lot of things like tinted lip balm or a copycat Benetint cheek gel from easy to find ingredients like beets and glycerine or aloe vera or branch out and order from a cosmetic making company and get a few specialty items to make more "professional" items. For example, I just ordered some hair starch and panthenol to make hair gel. You buy the raw ingredients and you put it together and you are not supporting any companies with suspect policies. You can make all your own products like face wash, face scrub, body scrub, hair spray, deodorant, makeup. Worth a try. I find it to be cheaper in the long run and better for my body (no harsh chemicals or paraben preservatives)

I also sell Arbonne products. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/veganpolice.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":notvegan:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> Arbonne doesn't test on animals and produces vegan cosmetics and other health/beauty products.<br><br><br><br>
There are a few websites that I used before to help me find "cruelty-free" companies... these might be of particular use to you:<br><br><a href="http://www.leapingbunny.org/color_cosmetics.htm" target="_blank">http://www.leapingbunny.org/color_cosmetics.htm</a><br><br><a href="http://www.choosecrueltyfree.org.au/list.html" target="_blank">http://www.choosecrueltyfree.org.au/list.html</a><br><br><br><br>
Hope that helps! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
