Vegan, clean and cruelty-free cosmetics

The market is saturated with cruelty-free and organic cosmetic brands but the question arises. Are they really cruelty-free? Ethical fashion and clean beauty blogger @mademoisellepanka vouch on the credibility of these amazing beauty products. A lot of beauty brands are realizing the importance of clean beauty. Consumer behavior has also played a major role in the way cosmetics are made.  As someone who lives sustainably, products that are tested on animals are a complete no-no. It is important that the cosmetics are made in ethical facilities and are free of harmful chemicals which is exactly what clean beauty offers.
