If you had the choice to buy a cruelty-free product versus one that was tested on animals you would right? I like to think that most people wouldn’t support animal testing for cosmetics but the problem is knowing which companies do and do not test. Even many brands that use natural ingredients practice animal testing and it can be difficult to figure out whether a product is cruelty-free. A general rule of thumb is that if a company is cruelty-free, the packaging will say “Not tested on animals.” However, some companies get their ingredients from other companies that do test, or the company that owns them tests, even if the specific brand doesn’t. It’s all very overwhelming. Enter: The Cruelty-Cutter app.
The Cruelty-Cutter app was created by the Beagle Freedom project, which aims to rescue beagles who are used in animal experimentation and research labs. If you are committed to buying cruelty-free products, this is your resource. The must-have tool allows you to search through thousands of companies, with the most up-to-date list on the market. It not only allows you to search for a brand or product individually, but you can also scan a product’s bar code and it will tell you whether it’s cruelty-free or not. So basically, it couldn’t be more simple. This app does cost $2.99, and there are plenty of similar apps out there, but it’s a donation to a great cause. You can also earn doggie dollars by sharing your findings on social media which go towards coupons for cruelty-free brands. So download Cruelty-Cutter now and take a step towards cruelty-free living.
