Add these 5 cruelty-free cosmetic brands to your makeup bag today!

Cruelty-free cosmetics can be difficult to find, so we decided to curate a list of 5 such cosmetic brands that you can easily buy in the Indian markets

As an animal lover, I make sure that all the cosmetic products I purchase are cruelty-free. Which means that these products have not been tested on animals and /or are nature-friendly.

But it's not easy to scout for a cruelty-freecosmetic brand, especially if you are a makeup lover. That's essentially because most high-end cosmetic brands available in the market actually indulge in animal testing.

And most people end up buying them because of the brand they represent and their packaging.

So we decided to curate a list of 5 cruelty-freecosmetic brands that you can easily buy in Indian markets.
