Cruelty-free or not cruelty-free? That is the question…

My resolution for 2018 is to become completely cruelty-free with my toiletries and make-up. This requires some research as it is often unclear which brands are/aren’t cruelty-free, particularly on the high street. For example, some brands which are cruelty-free aren’t certified and don’t carry a cruelty-free symbol. My lists below show which UK high street brands are and aren’t cruelty-free to help you make informed choices when making a purchase. Every product you buy is a vote either for or against animal-testing so use your purchase-power to choose wisely.
