Whether you are a true skincare enthusiast or simply looking for the best beauty and skincare brands to try this autumn, opting for vegan skincare is arguably the greatest choice. While some consumers might think of animal testing as a rather harmless practice, this couldn't be further from the truth. In a public survey posted by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) the results showed that 72 percent of those surveyed believe that testing cosmetics on animals is unethical. You see, veganism is not simply a diet, but a lifestyle choice.
More and more beauty enthusiasts have been vocal about the tremendous impacts of animal testing, and some brands finally paid attention. Luckily in Europe animal testing was banned in 2013, however, this sadly isn’t the case for the US and China.
