Being ethical and cruelty free is one of the most important challenges that the beauty industry faces today. Nowadays, most of the organizations are implementing cruelty free practices and are committed to moral ethics and values. Some of the biggest names in the beauty industry are vegan, organic and all of the products are ethically sourced. These companies adhere to strict norms against animal testing and have embraced ethical standards. Most of the countries in the world have established a ban on testing ingredients on animals, except in China, where it is a legal prerequisite to test imported products on animals before selling them in the market.
