Most people don’t want to hurt animals, but did you know that when you buy certain everyday products, you could be supporting businesses that poison and kill them? That’s because some unethical companies still choose to test cosmetics and personal-care products on animals—or pay for these deadly tests so that they can sell their products in countries such as China, where animal testing is required by law.

During these painful tests, experimenters drip substances into animals’ eyes, smear them onto their shaved or scraped skin, or force them to ingest or inhale massive quantities of chemicals—all without any painkillers. Typically, the animals are killed when the tests are over. When you buy from companies that pay for animal testing, you’re supporting this torture.

Tell Gillette to stop testing on animals!

The good news is that tons of companies refuse to harm or kill animals for their products and have pledged not to sell them in China until the country lifts its requirements for tests on animals for cosmetics.

Here are some of our favorite lip balms that are cruelty-free—they’re also totally vegan, which means that they don’t contain carminebeeswax, or any other ingredients that came from an animal:
