Cruel Cosmetics: 15 Common Animal Ingredients to Look Out For in Beauty/Body Products

Checking to see if has your asset locally...

As a vegetarian, vegan, or someone who cares about animals, its important to be on HIGH ALERT whenever shopping (for any products really!) Almost all consumer industries are based off of the exploitation of animals. The worst part is, we don’t know what we are buying and using most of the time! There are so many alternatives to killing animals for use in cosmetics. Every dollar you spend can be a vote for the cruelty-free industry instead of supporting needless violence. While there are endless “secret” ingredients to look out for, I’m going to share some of the most common and disgusting animal ingredients which you’ll find in most cosmetics and beauty products. If you can remember these, it will help you to become a more conscious consumer. BUT the best thing to do is have your go-to list of ALL UNSAFE ingredients saved in your phone. I personally use PETA lists because I really trust their authenticity. At this point, you might be thinking, “That sounds like a lot of work Prasiddha. If I’m being honest with myself I’m probably not going to go to all that trouble.” AND THATS OK. I don’t blame you at all! I felt the exact same way! That’s why my best friend and I decided to do something about it. This is how Radiant Roots was born. The one stop shop, the online marketplace for sustainable beauty. Where you don’t have to do ANY WORK OR RESEARCH. Just freely shop, knowing you’re helping save lives and the planet!
