Why We Should Stop Animal Testing Video

This is the first clip of our video, the link to this video is below.

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 Informational Video

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.

We need to make a change in the world to make animal testing end. Many makeup companies test on animals to make sure their products are the best. There are many alternatives to this, it is not necessary for them to test on animals. On “Peta” they stated several alternatives to animal testing that are cheaper than animal testing itself. “These alternatives to animal testing include sophisticated tests using human cells and tissues (also known as in vitro methods), advanced computer-modeling techniques (often referred to as in silico models), and studies with human volunteers. These and other non-animal methods are not hindered by species differences that make applying animal test results to humans difficult or impossible, and they usually take less time and money to complete.” https://www.peta.org/issues/animals-used-for-experimentation/alternatives-animal-testing/

Why we created our petition

We created our petition so that other people can get on board with our plan! Revlon is a beauty company that practically abuses animals to better their products. We want to use their products, but we don’t want to support a company that supports the abuse and testing of animals. We are hopeful that they will see our petition so that they can consider making a change.
