Be Spooky, Don’t Be Cruel!

Ankaa: Be Spooky, Don’t Be Cruel!

5 Reasons to Buy Cruelty-Free Beauty

October has finally rolled around, and you know what that means! Time to start getting into the Halloween spirit! This time of year is full of scary good times; Halloween parties, candy, and of course, watching horror movies!

But, wait! Slow your roll. Even though Halloween is almost among us, there is one crucial aspect of our daily life where we should not be spooky. You may have heard about cruelty-free cosmetics and skin care before. But what does that mean and why is it so important? In the name of this scary time of year, let’s dive in and explore why you should be spooky, but never cruel.

1. Animal Testing is Animal Abuse

Rabbits, hamsters, mice, rats, and sometimes even small dogs are the victims of animal testing. These animals are bred and raised for one reason: “making cosmetics safe for consumers”. But why do they have to endure torture, abuse, and death

The answer is simple. They don’t. Over 7,000 ingredients found in cosmetics today are proven and certified safe for cosmetic use. That includes synthetic and natural ingredients!

2. Vote with Your Wallet!

There are hundreds of beauty brands that are currently listed as cruelty-free. So put your money where your mouth is and buy cruelty-free! By buying exclusively cruelty-free, you send a message to companies who conduct animal testing -- we won’t buy it. Speaking with money influences brands and forces them to change strategies. Soon we could have a cruelty-free beauty industry! 

Here at Ankaa, we provide all-natural, indie, and cruelty-free skincare that supports animal welfare alongside your quest for dreamy, flawless skin.

3. No Cruelty? More Natural

Yes, it is true! Cruelty-free brands often contain better and all-natural ingredients. 

At Ankaa, you will never find a single product or ingredient that has been tested on animals. Our 100% natural ingredients, like the swertia chirata and laminaria saccharina found in our Smooth & Time Resist Ultra-Hydrating Moisturizer, are formulated for your beauty, keeping your love for animal welfare in mind.

4. What’s Scarier than Pollution?

When companies test on animals, they often produce an absurd amount of waste that is disposed of in our water and on our land. The effects on the environment are catastrophic and oftentimes irreversible. 

The caulerpa lentillifera in our Smooth & Lift Time-Resist Perfecting Serum is sourced straight from the sea, is never tested on animals, and does beautiful work for lifting and smoothing your skin. No need to be afraid of this serum!

5. Supporting Cruelty-Free = Supporting Independent Brands!

Ever wonder how you can support break-out brands in the beauty industry? Buying from cruelty-free indie brands, like us here at Ankaa Beauty, supports small and growing businesses, which are the backbones of our economy! 

Here’s the simple truth: beauty brands that aren’t cruelty-free are just simply cruel. So this Halloween season, while you browse online for new skincare during commercial breaks; stay spooky but never cruel. Choose Ankaa, an emerging cruelty-free skincare provider that loves animal welfare and making your skin beautiful from within.
