With the beauty industry booming day by day in India, cruelty-free and vegan beauty products are swarming the market. Right from skincare products to makeup, from lifestyle to food, everything has a sustainable option today.
Many brands have come up with sustainable packaging, cruelty-free and vegan products. Most of the brands are handmade brands and a few are commercial ones too.
