Beauty Without Cruelty Part 1

Beauty Without Cruelty Part 1

This is part 1 of our 3 part series on Beauty Without Cruelty.

Hundreds of thousands of dogs, cats, rabbits, primates, mice and other animals are poisoned, blinded and killed every year for product tests for cosmetics, personal-care products, household cleaning products, etc. These product tests are not required by law, often produce inaccurate results and even if a product has blinded an animal it can still be marketed to us. Join us in not supporting companies that test on animals.

To give you an idea of how main-stream animal testing is, check out the major brands below that still test on animals.
