I often receive questions from readers, friends, & family about my cosmetic purchases. How, in an industry so polluted by horrific animal testing, am I able to find beauty products that are cruelty-free? The answer is simple: I am a Body Shop addict. Not only does The Body Shop reject animal testing and the use of animal ingredients in their products, but they also actively campaign (and always have) against animal testing:
In addition to their loyalty to the animals, they are also committed to sourcing products responsibly and reducing environmental impact. They also use their proceeds and resources to campaign against domestic violence, to raise funds for HIV/AIDS research, and to stop human trafficking.
When you give The Body Shop your hard earned money, you can absolutely feel safe about the hands you’re putting it into. Unfortunately, when you buy products from L’Oreal, Lancome, Neutrogena, Dove, Garnier, Herbal Essences, Pantene, & many many others, you can be sure that a portion of your dollar is going towards this:
In conclusion, find your local The Body Shop (they’re everywhere!) and shop your beautiful heart out with a clear conscience.
EDIT: A lovely reader has pointed out that L’Oreal OWNS The Body Shop. This presents an interesting dilemma. Do we cease supporting them because profits will go to L’Oreal? (I’m inclined to say yes) or do we support them in hopes of L’Oreal quitting animal testing because they see how much success The Body Shop’s ethical practices have brought them? I’ll have to mull this over. While I write an angry letter to L’Oreal.
