Whether you’re an avid lover of animals, or just loyal to your own furry friends this is important. By no means do you need to be outside with a pitchfork protesting companies who test on animals or lobbying against China’s animal-testing mandate. However, it is good to be cautious of which companies you choose to support. I hope this serves as an eye opener into the what goes on during animal testing. I also want to shine a light on some amazing companies that offer cruelty free products and even those who have gone to great lengths to become
*Leaping Bunny Certified*
A good rule of thumb is to remember that Europe has completely banned animal testing—so you’re safe (and so are the animals) by purchasing European products. China, not so much. If you are buying a Peach Fizz Cleanser in Copenhagen, it was NOT tested on animals, but in China, that same Peachy Fizz Cleanser had to be tested on animals. Basically its sick. Some U.S. companies although they may not be testing in the states ARE selling in China, where their products must be tested on animals. So any companies selling products in China are a no go.
The animals used in experiments are not only confined to small cages and inhumane conditions, but they’re also subjected to tests that are beyond cruel. They’re tortured, maimed, blinded, and even killed. These poor animals have no choice but we can choose to protect them by not supporting these companies. You can learn more here.
