Beauty Without Cruelty (BWC) was established in England in 1963. The trustees of BWC Charitable Trust, an animal welfare organization, came together for a common goal – to manufacture and distribute natural, color cosmetics that were not tested on animals and products that did not contain any animal ingredients. Beauty Without Cruelty offers a full line of cruelty-free vegetarian, skin and body, and hair care products made from natural ingredients and organic aroma-therapeutic essential oils. Beauty Without Cruelty’s full line of color cosmetics reaches across all lines in order to meet the beauty needs of all women.
Beauty Without Cruelty Products may be purchased from your local natural foods retailer, and at some drug stores and vitamin shops. You can also purchase BWC products online directly from the Beauty Without Cruelty website at www.beautywithoutcruelty.com. Other popular cruelty-free lotions are available through beauty companies such as Almay.
Almay has been in business since 1931. Even back then, Almay used pure, hypoallergenic ingredients that were safe for even the most sensitive skin. Almay was the world’s first hypoallergenic cosmetics brand, and the first brand to make 100% fragrance-free products. It was also one of the first cosmetics companies to disclose all ingredients used, the first brand to perform safety testing for allergy irritation, the first brand to formulate for contact lens wearers, and the first brand to create cosmetics regimens for specific skin types.
Almay does not test on animals and it uses natural ingredients such as soybean, rosehips, licorice, milk thistle (plant derived) and aloe, to name just a few. These products are safe for vegetarians and vegans alike. Almay products can be purchased online through the official website or at any beauty supply house, cosmetics retailer or drug store. www.almay.com
