  • Words by Beauty Bar

Have you ever wondered why brands have been trying hard to achieve the cruelty-free seal of approval? It’s because the world of beauty is changing, and so have their testing practices! Gone are the days when hamsters, bunnies, and other furry friends were used in developing products.

But cruelty free doesn't mean brands have only stopped testing their finished formulas on animals, it means that no animal animal testing occured anywhere along the process, from their ingredients, to testing, to any point in the supply chain!

If you want to support the brands that help safeguard our animal buddies in their cozy homes instead of in tiny lab cages, look no further because we’ve got you covered. We’ve scoured the shelves (and the internet) for our favorite cruelty free makeup brands available in the Philippines!

Koh Gen Do

Best Cruelty-Free Aqua Foundation 2018 in the Philippines.

Koh Gen Do is a well-loved brand in the makeup industry. Japanese artistry and technology combined to bring us makeup to fall in love with. Ai Saotome, a Japanese actress, developed the brand because she herself felt her skin start to look dull and distressed from the heavy makeup she used to wear. She missed the healthy glow that is such a trademark of Japanese skin. Inspired by her need to get back her dewy skin and by the skincare tradition of her country, she began to develop a skincare line that eventually extended into the iconic moisturizer foundation. They combine the planet’s most precious botanicals with Japanese skincare technology to make sure that your skin looks good with or without makeup on. 

Their products have graced the faces of our favorite celebrities as we stare at them on gigantic movie screens. Their Aqua Foundation is an essential in any makeup artists kit! To find out their amazing products are cruelty free is every clean beauty guru’s dream come true!

The Inkey List

The best cruetly free Roseship Oil in the Philippines

If this brand hasn’t made it into your skincare essentials, well, this is a sign that you should see right to it. The Inkey List made a splash when it entered the market - and for good reason! It simplified skincare products, and they make sure that you understand what each product does for you.  They want their customers to understand their skincare so they can choose the right products for themselves! Also see: amazing skincare products at a great price point. What more could you want? For it to be cruelty free, maybe? That’s why it’s on the list. As if you needed any more reason to love this brand, they make sure that their brand keeps animals out of their testing labs. Hot tip: Rosehip OIl is a skincare classic that most people have forgotten, but not us!It helps with scarring, pigmentation and is amazing for moisturizing your skin at night.

Full Brow

The best cruelty free Brow Fibre in the Philippines.

A brand dedicated to giving you the best brows of your life! Quarantine has got us all sad and feeling blah, but Full Brow’s fun packaging is sure to add a pep to your step. Perk yourself up by applying their Brow Fibre onto your brows. Just that little self-care step at the start of your day is sure to improve your mood.

Not Your Mother's

The best cruetly free shampoo in the Philippines

Mother knows best, but maybe the best products for your hair are Not Your Mother’s. Old school hair products have a bunch of ingredients that have since made it to the no no list, and Not Your Mother’s makes sure that only the nicest ingredients touch your scalp. Whatever your hair type is, you can rejoice because they’ve got the perfect shampoo that can suit everyone’s needs! If you’re not ready to dive head first into the entire line, start with their Activated Bamboo Charcoal and Purple Moonstone Restore and Reclaim Shampoo. It’s free of all the chemicals that can weigh down your hair, and they are definitely Beauty Bar approved.

Skin 1004

The best cruelty free Madagascar Centella in the Philippines

“Whatever touches the skin must be pristine” - Skin 1004’s brand philosophy. With a philosophy like that, was there ever going to be any question about the quality of their products? Making sure that their Centella comes only from specific regions of Madagascar and picked only by trained pickers is what makes their Madagascar Centella Ampoule so good! That’s just one of their products that showcase the amazing centella leaves extracts, so if you need to combat redness and acne, this is the brand to turn to! Even sensitive, oily, dry or combination skin will love their Centella line, because who doesn’t want cleaner, smoother and ageless looking skin. THe Centella line is even all-natural, cruelty-free, vegan, and does away with unnecessary ingredients so its formula is as mild as it can be. Centella is the ingredient you’ve been looking for and Skin 1004 has got the market cornered.

With the -ber month upon us, their Winter Warm Up Holiday Kit is the perfect kit to rejuvenate your hands and feet after all the holiday preparations. It would even make for a great exchange gift surprise!

Poo~Pourri

Toily Spray which can be used in your bathroom.

Look, everyone’s poop stinks and it’s nothing to be ashamed of… but you don’t want everyone to know if you went #1 or #2 every time you exit the bathroom. Poo~Pourri to the rescue! You just spray the bowl before you do your business, and voila! All anyone will smell is a refreshing blend of essential oils! We could not think of a better gift for newlyweds than Poo~Pourri, because you just KNOW at some point, someone’ll have to use the bathroom right after the hubby comes out. It fits that Poo~Pourri encourages you to Share Love Not Stink with a little his and hers spray.
