Cruelty-free... Some brands just don’t "hop to it".

Cruelty-free... Some brands just don’t


Wikipedia states "In the animal rights movement, cruelty-free is a label for products or activities that do not harm or kill animals anywhere in the world."

Mommy Makeup is Cruelty-free - NO Animal Testing!And so you would think that in this day and age that most cosmetic brands are cruelty-free… Well, think again... Many brands are cruelty-free in the USA but not around the world!!

At Mommy Makeup, we can assure you that our products are certified cruelty-free with PETA, in the US and globally! In fact, we are part of PETA’s Beauty without Bunnies program!!

China FlagIn China, imported cosmetic brands are still required to test on animals. Therefore if a brand sells their products in China, then they are paying to have those products tested on animals in China, even though the brand may not test on animals for products they sell in the US market.

L’Oréal, does not test on animals in the United States, but does animal testing in China by law, in order for their products to be sold there.

Recently, there was a huge backlash when Nars Cosmetics, which claimed to be a cruelty-free company, decided to sell their makeup in the Chinese market... Sooooo, this meant the company would need to do animal testing of their products. For more about the Nars backlash read here.

For a more compressive list of companies that are not globally cruelty-free, please see

Remember, all Mommy Makeup products are:
  • Paraben-free
  • Talc-free
  • PETA certified cruelty-free
  • Made in the USA

Talc is a 4 letter word!
Talc is a 4 letter word!

TALC. It is a four letter word. And talc is an ingredient that you should avoid. Here’s why:

  • Talc can be drying to the skin.
  • Sensitive skins can (and usually do) have adverse reactions to talc.
  • Talc can "scratch" the skin.
  • And If talc is not processed properly, it may even contain some asbestos in it!
