What are Cruelty Free brands?

Cruelty free brands are those brands that do not follow the 92/32 / EEC community standard that requires that each new chemical substance used by the industry, not only by the cosmetic industry, be examined through specific chemical and toxicological tests, in which guinea pigs are animals. The exams in most cases are fatal or cause malformations and above all suffering.

In the specific case of the cosmetics industry, regulation 76/768 / EEC obliges companies to test the individual ingredients of a product on animals before marketing it. This standard establishes that the tests must be carried out on the ingredients of defined cosmetic products or those products that have a local and superficial action, that is, in a specific area of ​​the body and in such a way that no component penetrates inside the body.

Otherwise, they would not be cosmetics but drugs, in which case other rules apply. However, the difference between one type of product and another is usually minimal.

For this reason, since 2013 the EU totally prohibits this practice. Specifically, it is governed by Regulation (EC) No. 1223/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council that delimits the use of animals in the European Community when it comes to making cosmetic products. That is to say, that in Europe the use of animals such as rabbits is completely prohibited, for the elaboration of products such as gels, shampoos and of course, everything that involves makeup.

Cruelty Free brands are easy to identify, since their products all carry these two words “cruelty free” but they also usually carry the drawing of a crossed out rabbit, implying that their preparation has not been tested on animals.
