Best Cruelty Free Make-Up Brands

It’s 2017 and were somehow STILL supporting brands that test on animals. So why do companies test on animals? In most cases it’s a cover… Not to say that their products are safe, but to say “Hey! At least it was tested!” and other time it’s just the way some markets work. On Tuesday Nars took to social media to address why they will start using animals to test their products:

“WE WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT WE HEAR YOU. THE GLOBAL ELIMINATION OF ANIMAL TESTING NEEDS TO HAPPEN. WE FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT PRODUCT AND INGREDIENT SAFETY CAN BE PROVEN BY NON-ANIMAL METHODS, BUT WE MUST COMPLY WITH THE LOCAL LAWS OF THE MARKETS IN WHICH WE OPERATE, INCLUDING IN CHINA. WE HAVE DECIDED TO MAKE NARS AVAILABLE IN CHINA BECAUSE WE FEEL IT IS IMPORTANT TO BRING OUR VISION OF BEAUTY AND ARTISTRY TO FANS IN THE REGION. NARS DOES NOT TEST ON ANIMALS OR ASK OTHERS TO DO SO ON OUR BEHALF, EXCEPT WHERE REQUIRED BY LAW. NARS IS COMMITTED AND ACTIVELY WORKING TO ADVANCE ALTERNATIVE TESTING METHODS. WE ARE PROUD TO SUPPORT THE INSTITUTE FOR IN VITRO SCIENCES (IIVS), A GLOBALLY RECOGNIZED ORGANIZATION AT THE FOREFRONT OF ADVANCING NON-ANIMAL METHODS IN CHINA AND AROUND THE WORLD. NARS IS HOPEFUL THAT TOGETHER, WE CAN WORK TOWARD A CRUELTY-FREE WORLD.”
