Animal cruelty has been one of the major issues connected with beauty brands. I am against using products that have been tested on animals as it is associated to animal cruelty. In this article, I am presenting reasons to use cruelty-free beauty products.
Reasons to use Cruelty-free beauty products?
Fighting against animal cruelty
One of the major reasons to use cruelty-free beauty products is that they have not been made by making innocent animals suffer. For me, this is one of the biggest reasons to boycott products that have been tested on animals. Making animals suffer is against humanity.
Using products free of harmful chemicals
Using cruelty-free products means using products free of chemicals that are good for the skin. So, the skin will obviously be healthier as it will not be exposed to all the harmful chemicals that are generally used in the beauty products.
Cruelty-free products are not tested on animals, due to this reason many people tend to think that these products are much more expensive than the products that have been tested on animals. This is not true at all. There isn’t much difference in the pricing of the products. In fact, some of the cruelty free cosmetic brands have products much cheaper than of the brands which test on animals.
Alternatives of animal testing exists
Animal testing is not the only option to conclude that the ingredients used are safe for human use. There are many other alternatives to animal testing which cane be easily adopted. Big companies don’t want to adopt the alternatives of ingredient testing because animal testing is an affordable option. Some of the alternatives to animal testing are In Vitro testing, computer modeling, human-patient simulators, etc. to get more information on animal testing alternatives head to PETA’s link:
Animal testing in United States
Many nation have taken initiative to end animal testing by banning products that have been tested on animals. India, Israel and nations of European Union have banned products that are associated with animal cruelty. This is a huge step these nations have taken to fight animal cruelty.
As per PeTA- “Unfortunately, there’s no ban on testing cosmetics or household products on animals in the U.S., so companies that make and sell their products here can choose to conduct tests on animals.” This is extremely sad because United States is one of the most developed nations in the entire world, yet we are really behind a lot of nations on fighting for animal rights. In my personal opinion, if United States will take an initiative to end animal cruelty, a lot of other nations will be inspired to do the same.
