There’s no doubt about it: Sofia Sisniega is gorgeous. And now, the Mexican-American actor and lifelong animal lover is also starring in her very first (and very sexy!) peta2 ad to let everyone know that “true beauty is cruelty-free.”

Did you know that companies still blind, poison, and kill animals in the name of “product testing” for items such as  toothpaste, hairspray, and lipstick? I know it’s crazy, but it’s true! That’s why we’re here, along with the smart and beautiful Sofia, to let you know that there are tons of cruelty-free (and vegan!) beauty products out there for you to use.

Sofia knows what’s up. See what she has to say in our behind-the-scenes interview:

Animal testing cannot be done without causing innocent animals pain and suffering and—in most cases—killing them. There aren’t any laws that prohibit animal testing, but there are plenty of companies that have pledged NEVER to conduct tests on animals for their products.

Remember: You can take a stand against animal testing by choosing to shop cruelty-free! Look for the cruelty-free bunny logo or the words “Not tested on animals” on everything you buy—and check out peta2’s cruelty-free shopping guide.
