This change will impact our community vastly. Species of animals are frequently going extinct, and part of this issue is the death of animals due to animal testing. Many beauty companies involve the testing of animals on their products to ensure that it works properly. This is an unnecessary way of testing a product, and there are alternatives to this. The termination of this practice can lead to an increase in certain animal species.
At the start of 2019 I decided to go through my Make-up Collection and pick out all of the make-up from non-cruelty free brands and use it up and then not repurchase 🙂 Since then I have managed to get my make-up collection to completely cruelty free bar a few items which are still on the go but I’m nearly there 🙂 Once I have finished those products I will do a make-up collection 🙂 Since reorganising my Make-up collection a few brands have shown themselves to be firm favourites so I thought I would write a list of some of them 🙂 *DISCLAIMER* All of these brands came up as cruelty free when I looked on https://features.peta.org/cruelty-free-company-search/index.aspx but I don’t know if that site is 100% accurate and I’m still learning. *DISCLAIMER*
Too Faced- I absolutely love the Too faced highlighters and eyeshadow palettes- I also use the Too…
Sahana and I are very passionate about being cruelty free and encouraging this message among others. When a makeup company is cruelty free, they do not hurt animals by testing on them to manufacture or develop their commercial product. Animal testing is a practice to test these commercial products before commercial release to the public.
We have mentioned many alternatives to animal testing which many makeup companies can do to become cruelty free. One of the easiest alternatives is vitro (in glass) testing. This method only needs human cells to test the wellness of the product. More relevant results are able to be drawn from this experiment than testing on animals (which is a whole new organism). This method is also safer because there is no risk in the performance of the product because it was directly tested on a human cell. Sometimes, animals may not be affected by the product being tested on them which may affect humans because humans and animals are different. In the end, no organism will need be harmed in the process of testing products because of this alternative.
Many facts are stated in this video which describe how horrid animal testing is. Becoming cruelty free is a change companies should be willing to do because it will benefit animals and humans in the end. This would mean their products will be less painful to purchase because no organism was harmed in the process, making it a cleaner product. Companies that do animal test can not be supported because they are harming animals which is inhumane. If people do not support these companies and spread the word about the cons of animal testing, these companies may be more likely to end the testing.
Animal testing is the inhumane practice of using lab animals to test products on. This procedure can be inaccurate in resembling human reactions to certain chemicals involved in a product. Not only this, but the tested animals suffer the consequences that do arise when they are affected by a product. Sometimes this can even lead to death of the animal.
In this video, we wanted to educate those who don’t know why animal testing is such a cruel practice. A lot of the time, these people are those who support animal testing because they don’t know the exact process and effects of it. Cruelty free brands are the start of the movement against animal testing, which is why they’re so important. They are the foundation of a bunch of other steps to the complete extermination of animal testing from our society. Sure, there has been significant progress over time, and people have come to terms with this inhumane act, but that’s not enough. We need to create and promote a cruelty free product lifestyle in order to convey the right idea about animal testing, and how it’s not only brutal and callous, but giving long term effects to lab animals.
It is well understood that in some situations, non cruelty-free brands produce better products than cruelty-free brands do. But what needs to be understood by customers and consumers is that animals are tested against their will, and buyer should rethink their decision to support a company that reinforces that. Additionally, there are other ways that can be used to test a beauty product and get a pretty accurate response. For example, silicon models. It’s an alternative that can be designed in a way that can react the way a human does. In fact, it could be even more accurate because animals don’t carry some diseases that humans do. Alternatives to animal testing can result in a better, cruelty-free society.
