Exploring Cruelty Free Skin Care Products For a Better World

Looking to upgrade your skin care routine without harming the planet? Cruelty free skin care is the way to go. Ethical, socially responsible, and high quality, cruelty free skin care products offer a more humane and compassionate approach to keeping your skin in its best possible condition. If you’ve been eyeing cruelty free skin care brands and products for a while but haven’t made the switch, you’ve come to the right place. The information here will give you a comprehensive overview and set you on the right path. Read on to learn more about what cruelty free skin care is, why it’s important, and where to find the best products.

What is Cruelty Free Skin Care?

The world of skin care and cosmetics is a mystery to many. The “behind the scenes” action that goes into the products we use on our skin each and every day would surprise most people. Beauty and skin care is meant to enhance the way we look and bring out our best selves. Unfortunately, some skin care companies use ingredients and testing procedures that are anything but beautiful.

Cruelty free skin care products are those that have never been tested on animals. The sad truth is that many beauty and cosmetic products are regularly tested on animals as part of efficacy and safety procedures. While it is important to test all skin care products before they go to market, doing it on animals is not what ethical skin care and beauty brands are all about.

In addition to the more humane approach cruelty free skin care brands take, the products themselves also tend to be better for the skin. Formulas are typically cleaner, as the ingredient profile is likely to not contain harsh substances.


Who is Cruelty Free Skin Care For?

If you’re wondering whether cruelty free skin care is right for you, the answer is yes! Clean skin care is for everyone, regardless of their age or skin concerns. Everyone should prioritize shopping cruelty free when it comes to what they put on their face and body. While this would be advantageous for all people, it is especially important for those with sensitive skin and skin conditions. Additionally, it goes without saying, but cruelty free products are also the wisest choice for individuals who care deeply about the environment – that includes both the planet and our furry friends.

Malie Organics’ BotanyBeauty: Clean & Cruelty Free

Malie Organics is committed to preserving the integrity of our planet, which includes ethical treatment of all beings who inhabit it.

What to Look for When Shopping Cruelty Free

Cruelty free is not just a fad – it’s a way of life. At Malie Organics, we believe that the best things in life are built with love. Inspired by Kauai’s natural bounty, Malie was founded based on integrity, quality, and a commitment to preserving nature’s most precious resources. It is with this mindset that we create all of our cruelty free skin care products.

When you’re shopping for cruelty free skin care, beauty, and cosmetics, there are a few things to pay special attention to. Some of these include:

  • Manufacturer’s information. What the manufacturer says (or doesn’t say) about their commitment to remaining cruelty-free will give you an idea about their practices. Most cruelty free skin care companies will proudly make it known that they refrain from all animal testing.
  • Sourcing information. How and where a company gets their ingredients may be a factor to consider for cruelty free skin care and cosmetics. While there are many ways to go about sourcing, the most environmentally responsible and ethical methods tend to be local and made domestically.
  • Ingredient profile. Not only is the lack of animal testing crucial for clean skin care, but so are the ingredients within the products. Check out the ingredient profiles and formulas of the skin care products you are evaluating to see if they contain parabens, sulfates, phthalates, mineral oil, silicone, petrochemicals, talc, gluten, and artificial ingredients. While a small concentration of some of these ingredients may be necessary in certain circumstances, the goal is to have as little of them within the skin care products you use as possible.

Your skin, the planet, and our world’s furry friends will thank you for making the switch to cruelty free skin care. Not only is this a more humane and compassionate method, but it’s also the better choice for your beauty regimen. Cruelty free skin care products tend to be cleaner and more natural. Clean formulas made from nature’s finest ingredients are better tolerated by our skin for a reason. They are the products we’re meant to use. Instead of fighting nature’s way, we choose to embrace it.

Exploring cruelty free skin care is the first step towards a cleaner, safer planet for all beings. Not only does Malie’s BotanyBeauty skin care line provide the highest quality cruelty free products, but our other body, hair, and home products are also responsibly sourced and ethically made as well. Our products use recyclable packaging and are proudly made in the USA to promote local manufacturing. Inspired by paradise and powered by the best plant science available, Malie Organics is the better choice for your body and skin.
