Cruelty-free beauty products are rapidly disappearing. Every week a new company announces they are entering the Chinese market (which requires animal testing), and the selection on the U.S. market gets even smaller. It is even confusing to figure out if a brand is cruelty free. Does just the brand need to be CF? What about their parent company? Luckily there are programs like PETA and Leaping Bunny to keep track of who is CF and when brands are making the switch out of the market.
