For a while now, we have been educating our readers about the importance of buying eco-friendly clothing. But the fashion industry is not the only place to be conscientious. In fact, the beauty industry has been known for using rather cruel practices against animals for some time. Many products—makeup, body lotions, shampoos, and perfumes—can all contain harsh chemicals, animal products, and are often tested on animals. Here is the good news: cruelty-free, vegan products exist and are affordable! With that, let’s jump into some vegan, cruelty-free perfumes! (we have ranked them by price for you)
