Responsible Consumption, for you, your skin and the planet
Animal testing is a common practice in the beauty industry defined as “any scientific experiment or test in which living animals (such as bunnies, mice, hamsters, cats, monkeys, and even dogs) are forced to undergo something that is likely to cause them pain, suffering, distress or lasting harm.” As we saw in the new viral mini-documentary “Save Ralph”, a star-studded animated short that is part of a campaign to ban animal testing for cosmetic products, forms of animal cruelty include the injecting or force feeding of harmful substances, the exposure of radiation, the inhalation of toxic gases or the removal of organs and tissues.
Ralph-the-rabbit is a tester—one of untold thousands of rabbits and other animals used each year in government-required chemical-poisoning tests for cosmetics and their ingredients.
Although most major beauty brands haven’t animal-tested in years (or even decades), and the practice is now banned in 40 nations, most countries simply look the other way. What’s worse, chemical laws are increasingly being used to require new animal testing—even in places like Europe where such testing is supposed to be banned!
When you opt for products not tested on animals, you’re also ditching the bad chemicals like parabens, sulfates, and synthetic dyes. These cleaner cosmetics are better for your skin, which means less likelihood of breakouts, allergies, and inflammation. You’ll be using better healthier products on your skin, while promoting a positive change in the beauty industry.
Cosmetic animal testing is completely unnecessary these days, with alternatives available for almost every test used. In today’s day and age there is no excuse, every company producing beauty products should produce cruelty free cosmetics. Cruelty-free companies employ modern non-animal test methods to assess the safety and effectiveness of products. This includes sophisticated tests using human cells and tissues (also known as in vitro methods), advanced computer - modeling techniques, and studies done with human volunteers.
