Most consumers assume that the products they are using daily have been tested for their safety.
These tests are not required by law, and they often produce inaccurate or misleading results – even if a product has blinded an animal, it can still be marketed to you. Although more than 500 companies have banned animal tests, some corporations still force substances into animals’ stomachs and drip chemicals into rabbits’ eyes.
By purchasing only cruelty-free products, you can help save rabbits, mice, guinea pigs, rats, and other animals. Hundreds of thousands of animals are poisoned, blinded, and killed every year to test shampoos, household cleaners, cosmetics, hairsprays, and other personal-care and household items.
