Animals share with us the privilege of having a soul. And it's on us to be the voice for the voiceless and protect their lives to coexist. One of the dark secrets of the cosmetic industry is animal testing which is as gruesome as it sounds. Poor creatures like bunnies and puppies are confined to harsh conditions and injected with formulas that are lethal for life. The good news is that many homegrown brands have become aware and started to put an end to this inhuman process.
In fact, many countries have banned animal testing and this is just the first good step. Here are amazing Indian skincare and makeup brands that are cruelty-free and worth the bucks. Most brands mentioned are approved by PETA and/or FDA approved. How to check that? Look for any of a bunny or a leaping bunny logo on the packaging or you could run a search on PETA's Beauty Without Bunnies data. Some brands make mention of being cruelty-free on their official sites/handles (still in process of obtaining a license) or have PETA/FDA approved written on them which makes it easier.
