Top 5 Cruelty Free & Vegan Beauty Swaps

Posted on

Feeling overwhelmed with where to start? 

We've put together our top 5 favourite swaps to help you start your ethical journey! 
There's a lot of loopholes when it comes to cruelty-free, and sadly, not all companies can be trusted when they say they're cruelty-free or when they have a fake bunny on their product. Take Batiste Dry Shampoo as an example, they have 'not test on animals' on the back of their products, sadly, this isn't true as they sell in mainland China which requires their products to be tested on animals before they enter the Chinese market. 
Everything at The Cruelty Free Beauty Box, is not only cruelty-free, but also vegan. Some companies we stock are not 100% vegan, but everything we stock by that specific company is 100% vegan. 
You don't have to be Vegan to buy Vegan products, you'd be shocked at what can lurk in your bathroom & makeup products, including things like Carmine (crushed beetles), Stearic Acid (obtained from the fat of slaughtered animals) and Lactoferrin (obtained from the mammary glands of female mammals). All of which can be in products we use on our face and body, yuk! 
Here's our Top 5 Cruelty Free & Vegan Switches 
Giovanni began in Hollywood & Beverly Hills! It's one of the top brands in the USA too, salon inspired hair care. Their range includes shampoo & conditioners but also hair repair products & styling must haves.

Chloe's favourite for summer is Coral Blush

Now this deodorant is a balm, but not only is it cruelty-free and vegan, being a balm means it's also better for our health & the environment! You may look at this and be shocked by the price compared to what you're use to, but, this will last around 2 months as only a small amount is needed! 
Chloe's favourite is Lemon Breeze
Pure Purpose Natural Deodorant Vegan
You may not be aware that the majority of designer fragrances aren't Cruelty-Free, but no need to get upset that you won't be able to buy your favourite perfume again, introducing Eden! Eden Perfumes match those most loved scents & come in at a fraction of the price! 
Chloe's favourite is No.307 which is as a close as you can get to Jimmy Choo
