Cruelty-Free Cosmetics

 

 

Every girl has her beauty secrets!  Cosmetics companies have their secrets, too, and one fact often glossed over is the inhumane practice of testing beauty products on animals.  When shopping for cosmetics, I always choose products that are cruelty-free.  

It's easy to find cruelty-free cosmetics - just look for the Leaping Bunny!  The Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC) has certified over 400 cruelty-free companies.  They created the Leaping Bunny logo and an app for iPhone and Android so when you're out shopping, you have all the info at your fingertips.Unfortunately, animal testing is a sad reality.  The ugly truth is that thousands of caged animals suffer every day from harsh chemicals that are dripped into their eyes, down their throats and rubbed on shaved patches of skin - all in the name of beauty.  
 
The good news is, you can help put a stop to it!  In June this year, Urban Decay announced their intention to begin selling their products in China, where animal testing is mandatory.  Compassionate consumers spoke out, and Urban Decay reversed their decision.  
 
"We've decided not to start selling Urban Decay products in China because we did not feel we could comply with current regulations in China and remain true to our core principles." - Wende Zomir, Urban Decay Cofounder

The leaping bunny is a nice

The leaping bunny is a nice logo to tell people that the product is not tested on animals. I will definitely take care of this next time I buy any product.
