Where to buy Cruelty Free Cosmetics in Amman

One of the most important causes for me is animal welfare, so naturally I try to avoid any products that are tested on animals. Upon arriving in Jordan, I found it very hard to find bath products (shampoo, conditioner, soaps, body lotion, etc.) and cosmetics that are NOT tested on animals at the supermarket so I had to look elsewhere.

The following is a list of cruelty-free cosmetic brands available in Amman and where you can buy them:
