Testing cosmetics and chemicals on animals started in 1930’s. Animals were supposed to prevent human poisoning by unknown then ingredients. People didn’t seem to question the morality of inflicting such painful practices for animals.

It is believed that just in the USA and China, over 100 million animals killed, each year, as a result of negative reaction to chemical testing. All of laboratories animals suffer pain, allergies, immune and digestive system malfunctions, and some become blind, crippled or poisoned to death.
It’s just the last 10-15 years when people started spreading awareness how harmful and immoral it is to test beauty products on defenseless animals. Animal rights activists have made many governments change their policies to stop this cruelty from happening. In Israel, European Union and India such practices are already banned. It is time to make the big and important change here! You can start influencing government by switching to buying from companies who are 100% cruelty-free and vegan.

1. Animals Testing does NOT improve product safety.
In past it was believed testing on animal could exclude products that would have a negative outcome to your skin and body. But actually, animal testing didn’t make things safer. Human skin is different than animals skin and can be gentler and react to different chemicals.
Even though many cosmetics pass animal testing (in USA each product has to undergo at least 50 experiments on samples all together of at least 10,000 animals!) they still contain ingredients unsafe for people.
The reason is that many companies choose to use cheap chemical ingredients, instead of safe organic ones, which tend to be more costly. This way they produce cosmetics very cheaply, and their only concern is to lower costs of the products they sell.

3. Quality and performance of cosmetics
The way cosmetics are tested has no influence on their performance, quality and the way you look after using it. This means that there is no reason at all to keep testing on animals and using toxic ingredients, since you can have the same result without all that cruelness and chemistry.

4. Because of your future health
Many companies test on animals to see how they react to different amounts of poisonous ingredients. And the ingredient becomes accepted once there is no harm saw.
But although cosmetic passed testing it still contains the poison for humans. And imagine using many cosmetics every day, each of them consisting some toxins… This way your body will soak with poisons for many years, and may cause sickness in future nobody warned you of. That it is a ticking bomb.

6. Because cruelty-free is healthier
First of all these companies use more natural and organic ingredients. Second of all they use fewer ingredients in general.
We must understand that we want as little chemicals on our skin as possible. The more chemicals our skin experiences, the unhealthier it will be, and the faster it will age.
