Torturing bunnies for makeup should never be OK.
Every year, countless mice, rats, rabbits, and other animals are poisoned, blinded, and killed in cruel and outdated product tests that are not required by law and often produce inaccurate results. These animals suffer and die alone without ever having experienced an ounce of kindness so that chemicals in products like shampoo, makeup, deodorant, toothpaste, and household cleaners can be tested. Animal testing breaks hearts!
The good news is that more than 950—yes, 950!—companies have banned animal tests forever! There is no reason for anyone to buy products that blinded bunnies or poisoned mice when there are plenty of cruelty-free options available. All you have to do is read those labels!
Says Layla, “I don’t think people are purposely buying cosmetics and household products that are tested on animals. I just don’t think they think twice. … It really takes a small thing that makes such a big impact, you know, and I feel like the more people get involved, the more it can make a difference.” Check out what else Layla had to say in her peta2 interview below.
Thanks, Layla! We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Don’t be a heartbreaker! Take a cue from Layla and always shop cruelty-free. Help spread the word that animal testing is wrong and that you’ll only buy products that weren’t tested on animals.
