Cruelty free salon pedicure - is this a 'hens teeth' situation?
I am trying to buy only cruelty-free products but I would like to have a pedicure done to 'treat my feet'. Am I likely to find a salon using products that aren't tested on animals? I don't want a gel polish, just the old fashioned normal polish.
I know it's tricky to find hairdressers that don't use products tested on animals, I'm guessing it's the same for salons?
I'm in the North West, just in case anyone has found somewhere they'd recommend.
i feel your pain! i used to go to a salon that used opi products but now opi have been taken over by coty, i tend to do them myself. definitely explain your preference to a salon though and ask if you can take your own polish etc. so many grey areas with animal testing but i too look for the leaping bunny to be sure.
I'm pleased to see other people have taken their own polish in with them. I usually just do my own pedicure (when I can be bothered) but fancied a treat. I might just ask a few local salons and see what they say.
