True beauty encompasses kindness to our bodies, animals, and the earth.  All products carried at The Beauty Library are formulated without animal by-products, toxins, or animal cruelty.  These are our standards for the modern beauty industry. I created The Beauty Library to give people a place to shop for non-toxic cosmetics and skincare that are also kind to animals.  Each product on the website has been carefully vetted and holds to our high standards.  Feel comfortable knowing that every product on The Beauty Library is safe for both you and animals.
