Being kind to others is a REALLY old fashioned idea never goes out of style, but the new twist is that the fashion industry has been taking notice of the many people who prefer to purchase products that aren’t tested on their beloved Beagles.
I came across a website for Borba, which is the maker of a line of skin care products. Because it appeared to be a specialty/high end product, I investigated to see if they too offered beauty products that weren’t tested on Beagles.
As I looked around, I spot checked the product descriptions and I found many that are not tested on animals. One of the specializations of Borba are their acne solutions. The Clarifying Micro-Diamond Cleanser. and Clarifying Complexion shields fall into that category as cruelty free. The price point is more compatible with products that you would obtain at the department store, but those who typically purchase at a lower price point may find that they discard enough tubes and jars before finding something they like that they might as well have paid the department store price to begin with.
As an added bonus, if you are a guy, you can more easily purchase at the department store and say that its for your girlfriend or your wife and be seen as very thoughtful, when you are really going to toss out telltale box with the pink flourish on it and use the unassuming looking tubes for yourself. Good skin care might not be available yet with camouflage decals on them.
Many products who use or at least splash their products with more natural ingredients tend to stress that their products create beauty from the inside nutritionally. I never understood how eyeliner or a cream could get inside and “beautify form the inside out” unless you used the product in a way that was not intended. Borba has a line of nutritional waters to support the various skin concerns, such as acne, anti-aging, or dry skin. Actually, I should correct myself as they are called Replenishing Aqua-Less Crystalline. These products do not state that they aren’t animal tested so can’t say for sure.
All in all, I would rate Borba as being Cruelty Free.
