Interview with Cruelty-Free Phyrra

Editor-in-Chief | Phyrra
Phyrra: Beauty for the Bold
VMS: Whats your ig name/s? @Phyrra

VMS: What’s your real name? Courtney

VMS: Are you vegan? How long? I’m not vegan, but my blog is a cruelty free beauty blog and I support cruelty free and vegan brands.

VMS: Why did you become cruelty free? I went cruelty free in 2012 when MAC started selling in China and testing on animals. I was devastated by this so it pushed me into going cruelty free.

VMS:What does Cruelty-Free mean to you? For me cruelty free means no testing on animals and not selling in China. I support cruelty free brands even if their parent company is not cruelty free because I believe it will lead to the eventual elimination of animal testing. I do understand that all ingredients were tested on animals at one time, but that does not mean that we need to be barbaric and still test on animals. I also understand that this is a very personal choice for people so with my blog I try to provide cruelty free options without judging or saying ‘you suck for not using cruelty free’.

Creestaaal Sanchez is an inspirational second generation Latina resident of Moreno Valley, California. She decided to go vegan almost 7 years ago and she has never looked back. It was difficult for her to transition to veganism because of her family’s disapproval of her decision, until today they don’t approve that she doesn’t eat “meat.” Latino food is laden with meat and animal products. I know so because I am Latina too. I also know that family plays a huge role in our culture. It’s hard when your family doesn’t want to listen to your reasons and instead judges and makes fun of you because you don’t want to eat animals anymore.I think that Creestaaal’s resilience and her own experience with her family inspired her to launch Hispanic Vegans of Instagram(@hispanicvegansofig). She created a space where she promotes cruelty-free Latino recipes to prove that it’s possible for Latinos to eat our traditional foods without harming animals.Besides her endless work to help more animals by raising awareness about veganism within the Latino community, Creestaaal has rescued countless animals, her most recent rescued is a hen named Blondie. I know her calling in animal rescue work has caused some financial hardships, but her passion towards the animals is stronger than a vet bill. When I am down due to all the injustices that take place in this planet, I think about Creestaaal and the work she does. Her passion energizes me, her ability to take care of seven dogs, being a regular at animal rights protests in Southern California and more are my spark to keep fighting for the animals, and social justice.Note: Creestaaal is a published model and also runs a vegan makeup sharing instagram ( @VeganmakeupShare ), a vegan gardening instagram,( @TheVegangardener ) and she has a facebook fan page.
