The term cruelty free is commonly used today. What does it mean? To put it in simple terms, cruelty free products are ones wherein the product and the ingredients used in it are not tested on animals. There are companies that are certified by PETA, which means not just the final product but ingredients used to make the product are cruelty free too.
