As I grow and mature, so does my understanding of the world around me. In the past few months, there has been a topic that I am still working on – cruelty free products.
Cruelty free products are something that we should start thinking about buying instead of the “normal” brands. Especially cosmetics products (I will be doing another post about other products in the near future).
It’s amazing how many products are tested on animals, little living things that have no voice to protest, especially to superficial things like cosmetic. Why should they be tortured and hurt so that we can all look better?
Technology and science have gone a long way in the past years, so now we can safely test products in safe and cruelty free laboratories, which can later be safely used on humans for dermatological testing.
I am honestly so sad that major companies like L’Oréal and Johnson&Jonhson are still doing tests on animals and I have no intention of buying anything from them ever again (at least until they are 100% cruelty free!)
The thing is, some of the make up and cosmetic products I used were from brands that are still not cruelty free and I am in search of ones that are. I know that PETA (I honestly don’t really trust them ever since major polemics came out of their procedures) and “Leaping Bunny” have lists and apps, but there are a lot of companies that aren’t part of any of these lists and advocate cruelty free procedures (like Kiko).
So, I have a favor to ask all of you : leave a comment to some of the brands you use (or know of) that are cruelty free and in which country they are selling (if you know. I will keep on my search but would be really grateful that you could help!
