You know what really makes me angry? Animal testing. It's so incredibly unnecessary and just cruel. It's basically flat out animal cruelty. Why is it accepted to slit an animal's skin up, restraining them, shaving them to pour chemicals on them. And all this for make up and beauty products!?
I mean, most people don't really think about this when buying make-up, shampoo, soap etc. Perhaps some wouldn't even want to see the horrible truth and rather live in ignorance.
I would be very happy if people took the time to read this. I'm not asking much. This is only a question of not buying animal tested products, and to support the cruelty-free companies! It really surprises me that animal testing isn't illegal yet.
Some facts about animal testing:
I think it's incredible that we've come so far, but still experiment on animals when there actually are several alternatives. Of course, the companies that do test their products and ingredients on animals probably justify this by claiming it's cheaper. Which doesn't really make any sense, does it? Take The Body Shop for example. From what I've checked, they have volunteer subjects and conduct the tests responsibly. This is just one alternative.
