Hi there!

I’m Rikke, and I’m the researcher, product tester, writer, photographer and head coffee maker behind She Lives Cruelty Free. 

I started this blog because I wanted to help more people discover ethical products that are high quality, kind to our bodies and kind to the world. 

I believe that you catch more bees with honey than vinegar, so rather than preaching to anyone, I want to help educate people that you can find amazing products without needing to be harmful to our furry friends.

A little bit about me

I’m Norwegian and live just outside of Oslo with my boyfriend and our little chihuahua Amadeus.

Outside of blogging, I’m a Nurse and currently work with refugees helping them to access government support in Norway. 

What you’ll find on my blog

  • Factual research on the animal testing policies in the cosmetic industry
  • Honest opinions and recommendations on ethical alternatives
  • Shedding some light on the brands that aren’t cruelty free
