You have a choice to choose cruelty-free and vegan make-up, so you must!
“Oh, there is a huge sale on beauty and make-up, let’s go buy them all,” “this is such a famous brand, I must own one of their lipsticks,” “I don’t care how they are made; I just want it to look good on me,” my favorite influencer just advertised it, must be great.” Well, that’s a whole bunch of wrong perspectives and things to say while making your choice. How often do you care to read what your lipstick or favorite nail paint is made of or how they are tested? Do you know that most of the top brands even today test on animals? You must be thinking how that is going to have an impact on you. It’s fair to think that way.
Primarily, it is cruel and inhuman to test on animals. Putting them through testing can cause them to suffer and die a painful death after that. Dogs, monkeys, guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, and many more animals are taken through this gory process and suffer due to cosmetic testing. A report by People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals or PeTA states that 110 million animals are used and killed in the US laboratories each year for this purpose. They are confined, made to inhale toxic elements, they have holes drilled into their skulls, and traumatized beyond imagination. If this is not bad enough, you must know that it is bad for you: the final consumer of the products. There are dangerous, harsh, and toxic chemicals used in testing on animals and some of them are and not restricted to pesticides, parabens, carcinogens, and plasticizers. These have lasting effects on the human body and can lead to the deadliest of them all: Cancer.
Since you have the choice, you can choose wisely on what to invest your money on; guilt-free and being a part of the vegan revolution.
