Hey it’s Kiley and today I’m here to inform you on a hot issue:
I have recently purchased an eyeshadow palette online from BH Cosmetics, I happily read that these beauty products were not tested on animals. My favorite make-up brand, URBAN DECAY, is not only a cruelty-free company, but also has a vegan make-up line. I think it’s important to spend money on quality products that advocate cruelty-free products.
Animal testing specifically in cosmetic products is a horrifying truth that is swept under the rug.The truth is many beauty products kill to guarantee greater satisfaction to their customers. Helpless bunny rabbits suffer every year in labs just to ensure that a women’s canvas skin or eyes will not irritate when using cosmetics. Are these animals dieing in vain,or rather for people who have vain. If the consequence is pain to a gentle creature shouldn’t we search for alternative methods or stick with ingredients that we know are safe. Is it human nature to exploit the weak? This is why I choose products that are cruelty-free. I experienced firsthand the democratization of information by researching products that do test on animals. Their are several claims that that L’OREAL and Procter and Gamble products like CoverGirl, Max Factor, and Physique. I search the websites and eventually decided to call both companies to receive the information I desired. L’OREAL claimed they, “would send me information concerning use of animal testing in the mail”. Procter and Gamble said they would send me an email and claimed their absolute finished product is not tested on animals. People deserve to be aware if products are tested or not because this issue extends to morals and ethical issues.
Products that don’t test on animals:
Alima Cosmetics, Inc
Bath and Body works
To name a few!
