Beauty products boycott

Most people are starting to boycott companies who contributes to Israel. The focus is on McDonald's, Nestle, Starbucks, and L'Oreal although now it is argued that Starbucks and McDonald's does not fund the Zionists.

To boycott fast food is easy, personal care products is a bit tricky.

Companies that are in the boycott list are, to name a few; L'Oreal, Estee Lauder, Unilever, Procter & Gamble. They own hundreds of personal care products including but not limited to makeup, skincare, and perfume. Usually, you will not know what brand is owned by which company if you don't do the research ie: I never knew that Urban Decay is affiliated with L'Oreal until I look it up on L'Oreal 's website.

You cannot rely on boycott lists as most of it is not updated. Stila is still on the list being the sub of Estee Lauder despite the fact that Stila has left Estee Lauder way back in 2006 and is currently under the management of Patriarch Partners.

To be sure, check their websites and differentiate between Jew-owned-companies and Israel-companies who supports Zionism.

I don't have any issues with other people's choice. To boycott or not, it's their own decision. As for me, I will try my best to avoid buying these products. In the italic brackets are things on my to-buy-list and the ones in bold are products I'm currently using.
