A Cruelty Free Boudoir?

http://www.petaindia.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/peta-india-2.jpg



I was disheartened to see that 90% of my vanity holds cosmetics that are tested on animals. The year 2014 was a year of experimenting with different brands and products for me, which certainly with held the ethics of using Cruelty-Free products. My plan for 2015 is to flip the figures to 90% Cruelty-Free products on my table.


Cruelty Free Indian Blog, Cruelty Free Products in India, Cruelty Free Brands


I am re-enlisting the brands I want to try and those I should avoid. The change is gradual, even in its initial stages. I am convinced of the temptations I would have to refrain from all the brands that have ascended my wish list.(I'll stick to Base products from MAC, till I get hold of Cruelty free brands)
Sometimes, I would bow out and get my lusted lipsticks, I wish to own. (oh! ebbing vanity)

I am certain of missing out on my till date favorite products that I stated would be repurchased.
With the availability and meagreness of Cruelty-Free brands/products in India, how long will I uphold my Cruelty-Free ethics is questionable. I would get most of my stock of Cruelty-Free Makeup from the United States. But the staples and skincare would be dicey.
Initially I tried keeping my skincare products as much as cruelty free but with Makeup, it is definitely non attainable.
I have most Non Cruelty-Free brands bought in the past, I would not cease using the products I already have. I would explore Cruelty-Free Brands that are already easily available henceforth. I would keep updating this space with the list of Cruelty-Free Brands and products.

I am taking this route to be completely Cruelty-Free, for innocent lives (animals) are more important to me than following brand or preference inclinations. I agree biomedical researches and drug testing are carried out on animals and medicines, being an obligatory. I settled to uphold the Cruelty-Free ethics because I can and believe I should. I consider my converted ethics as significant inputs to the humanitarian approach towards animals.

I wish my considerable step of coveting Cruelty-Free will be helpful for someone in someway.
