So Why Should You Go Cruelty-Free?

Animals don't deserve it and we can make a difference

The abuse and torture endured through animal testing are inhumane. These animals live their lives in cages away from their natural habitat where they undergo countless hours of pain and exhaustion from testing.

The worst part is that if the animal survives the testing, they still live with that trauma and anxiety for the rest of their lives.

We can make a difference by buying only cruelty-free products and forcing companies to make the change.

Animals testing is ineffective and no longer needed

Modern science proved that animal testing is ineffective and cruel. It is an inaccurate way of testing if products are safe for human use.

The problem is that new ingredients need to be tested and companies are always looking for a competitive advantage, which is why they push for testing.

Technology, however, has created more humane options for testing, and as consumers, we need to push that these methods become the standard.

Some countries have banned animal testing, and all should

Many countries are putting the safety of animals and humans alike above the need for profit.

The European Union, Switzerland, India, Israel, South Korea and New Zealand have already banned animal testing.

Although China has stated that they will end their pre-market animal testing policies by 2021, China still requires animal testing in specific scenarios.

The more pressure we put on countries that still test on animals, the more they will have no choice but to make the switch.

The environment is suffering but it doesn't have to

Animal testing creates so much waste. Not only from the amount of chemicals used and equipment needed, but from the number of carcasses left as a result of the tests.

Cruelty-free testing methods are not only better for you, they are better for the environment as well, as they conducted with computers and human cells.

Also, as cruelty-free products tend to be more natural, fewer chemicals are likely to be used which allows for much less chemical waste.

Plus, a lot of these brands are ensuring their products are budget-friendly. Comparing the two, we can see that cruelty-free products are not more expensive.

Companies that don’t harm animals, avoid hurting people too

When animal cruelty and safety is a top priority for companies. It makes sense that the safety of their customers would also be of concern as well as the environment.

This way you are looking after your best interests by supporting these companies.

These companies often are looking at innovative ways to reduce their carbon footprints. So, by buying their products, you are forcing animal testing brands to follow suit. Otherwise, these brands will become obsolete.
