How to Clean Up the Cruelty Free Way…
How do I know a product is Cruelty Free?
Cruelty Free Logos
There are many indications that a product may be Cruelty Free. Below are some of the most common symbols.
Cruelty Free Lists
There are many lists of Cruelty Free Products. Peta has an extensive list of Cruelty Free and Non-Cruelty Free Products. The problem with the lists is you need to check back frequently for updates on products and companies.
The most thorough screening process seems to be done by Leaping Bunny. Take note of the bottom paragraph in the diagram below.
What Do You Consider Cruelty Free?
When converting to Cruelty Free Products, you must first have a clear cut ideal of your requirements for you to consider a product Cruelty Free. Some criteria you may want to consider are:
- Product not tested on animals
- Brand not tested on animals
- Ingredients not tested on animals
- Parent company does not test on animals
- No third party is commissioned to test on animals
- No animal ingredients
- All ingredients are Vegan
- Did company ever test on animals [If so when did they stop testing on animals]

Some people are very strict and want an all Vegan product that has never been tested on animals, while others like to reward companies that are adopting positive changes in their production protocol.
I am not here to insist that you follow my ideals, but rather to help you find your own. The more people I help, the more animals are saved. Every little or big effort on the part of consumers or producers saves lives.
