For today's Is (BLANK) Cruelty Free? I'm going to be focusing on the brand The Ordinary. When this brand came onto the screen, I swear every beauty blogger under the sun got something from them or had it on their Instagram feeds. And I just never got around to purchasing anything from them though I really want to as I've heard nothing but great things. The problem is, I'm terrible at determining what my skin needs. So ordering skin care online is a giant question mark and probably the main reason I don't really have a skin care routine though that is a goal of mine to get better at. If you have tips on how to figure out what your skin needs, let me know. I would love to hear them... Now let's get back to the main topic, is The Ordinary cruelty free?
The criteria I use to determine if a brand is cruelty free are the following:
- Don't test finished products or ingredients on animals.
- Don't have suppliers who test on animals.
- Don't allow any third parties to test on animals on their behalf.
- Don't sell cosmetics in physical store in mainland China.
- Don't test on animals where required by law.
