Cruelty-free Makeup & Skincare Brands to consider for your Bridal Makeup & Trousseau

Bhavika Vallecha, 11 May 2018

It's always a better idea to be conscious of products we use in our lifestyles. Not merely the ingredients are being used to make the products (whether edible or non-edible products) but we should also be aware of the process they undergo to be on the retail shelves. Now talking specifically about makeup and skin care, there are a lot of brands that are cruel to animals and test their products on them to understand the pros and cons of the products, unknowingly they harm a lot of animals and then leave them to die once their experiments are done. That's sad right! While on the other hand there are some brands which are really conscious of not using animals for cosmetic experiments.

If you’re an animal enthusiast, it’ll show in your choices. No matter how happy a parcel from Nykaa makes you, buying or using products whose manufacturing processes involve animal cruelty is unquestionably distasteful.

We're doing our bit here and telling you some brands that do not test on animals, and you must consider while compiling your makeup/skincare trousseau and use while getting your bridal makeup done. (Plus these brands are easily available in India)
