Have we got your attention?
We hear a lot about choosing cruelty free skincare which means it is not tested on animals (and definitely something to be mindful of when shopping skincare products) but it is now time for you to choose vegan & cruelty free skincare otherwise the products you purchase may still contain animal derived ingredients.
Just pause for a moment to think about how the animals would have been treated to become part of your beauty products. Almost too much for the mind to comprehend really. Using animals for the sake of “beauty” and to fill products with what is classified as cheaper ingredients.
Every year, roughly 115 million animals will never see sunlight, or leave a laboratory. Trust us, it is alarming the amount of animal derived ingredients that may be hiding in your skincare products – click here to visit the Choose Cruelty Free website to see what could be lurking in your products.
Vegan skincare along with being cruelty free is the next step up from when you use to solely look for just the cruelty free logo. By choosing vegan, it ensures there are no animals used in the ingredients and in the making of the product.
Why have we at Cedar and Stone been a vegan based, cruelty free skincare brand since our inception, it’s simple:
