Animal testing is horrible, horrible, horrible. >.<
I'm pretty sure that we all know about it; it's when chemicals or products are tested on animals to make sure that they are safe for humans.
It has it's pros. It can save lives and help better products to be developed. However, I don't believe in it because it's cruel and inhumane, and often causes the poor animal being tested on injury, or even death!
You'd be surprised at how many companies in the US use it.
Here are a few examples:
  • Febreeze
  • Vaseline
  • Pantene (which I happened to donate 9 inches of my hair to before I knew o.o)
  • Old Spice
  • Oral B
Yep, animal testing is used in toothpastes, shampoos, perfumes, house products... it's very awful. If there are any more products that use animal testing that you can think of off of the top of your head, please comment them below.
On your bottle of shampoo or house cleaner or whatever, always look for something like this that says 'No Animal Testing.' This is an example from a bottle of conditioner that I use:
It's very important that we're aware of which brands do and don't use animal testing. For a few examples, look here and here.
Thanks for reading. (:
