What is animal testing you might ask? Animal testing is cruel, wrong, and should be illegal and banned everywhere in the world!
Animals have no say and never will. We need to stand up for them & speak out because no one else will.
Why are animals getting tested on & not us humans? Well, it's actually a pretty simple answer! Animals have absolutely no say in anything. No human would volunteer to get chemicals and products tested on them. Especially if it would hurt them & possibly kill them. Who wants their skin irritated and burned? Who wants to be shocked, poisoned, starved, isolated, drowned, addicted to drugs, and brain damaged? Well, obviously not us humans (at least not all of us.)
People think that since animals have no say and can't “talk” that it's alright to treat these animals like this, and do whatever they want to them, because what are the animals going to do about it? Nothing. U.S. law allows animals to be burned, shocked, poisoned, isolated, starved, drowned, addicted to drugs, and brain-damaged. No animals are safe from experimentation—primates, dogs, rats, mice, rabbits, pigs, fish, and cats are just a few of the animals who are routinely used in these tests. You can help stop this!
Some of your everyday products have been tested on animals. Please stop supporting businesses that don't care about animals' feelings & just animals in general. So many different kinds of makeup, bath bombs, perfume, chemicals, and cleaning products are tested on animals all around the world, and we need to stand up, and stop this nonsense.
Now, when it comes to companies testing their products on animals and hurting these poor creatures, I really don't mind “shading” them & their companies. Animals are way more important than any of these products ever will be. I'm going to be sharing some companies that test their products on animals. If you have any products made by these companies please do the right thing and get rid of your products & stop supporting them. If any of your friends & family have any products made by these companies please share this blog with them. Thank you!
P.s you can find out if companies test their products on animals simply by searching them up online, or checking to see if the product (s) says cruelty free. You can also look for certified bunny logos on product packaging, rely on an online list of certified cruelty-free brands, use a cruelty-free app, email/message the company yourself, or consult a cruelty-free expert or blogger!
Now before we share the products that test their products on animals I would like to quickly say, I unfortunately won't be able to share all of the brands with you that test their products on animals, simply because there is too much and I am not able to track down every single brand that isn't cruelty free. These brands are just some of the bigger brands, but there are hundreds of thousands of companies that aren't cruelty free.
So if you have a product that isn't in this list and you don't know if it is cruelty free, try searching up that specific brand to find out.
Anyways let's just get right to the brands that test their products on animals! Stop using Products such as… Lush, Benefit, Clinique, Estée Lauder, Makeup Forever, Maybelline, OPI, Victoria's Secret, Mary Kay, NARS, Bobbi Brown, L'oreal, Sephora brand, Tresemme shampoo and conditioner products, Johnson & Johnson, S.C. Johnson, Arm & Hammer, Aveeno, Axe, Bath & Body Works, Chanel, Chapstick, Clean & Clear, Clorox, Diesel, Tide, Febreeze, Irish Spring, Hugo Boss, Lady Speed Stick, Mac, Mr. Clean, Neutrogena, Nivea, Olay, Oxiclean, Secret, Swiffer, Tommy Hillfiger, Vaseline, Dawn Dish Soap, window cleaner (Windex), All purpose Cleaner, Disinfectant Wipes, Bathroom Cleaner, Polisher, and Listerine…
Yes there are a lot of products and you might just be thinking ‘If all these everyday items test their products on animals what am I supposed to use now?’ Well I'm going to give you guys a link to products that are cruelty-free! Everything from dish soap, to perfume, to cleaning products, to make up, to hygeine supplies such as deodorant, toothpaste, mouth wash, face wash, and acne products.

Now, I would like to say that I know some of these products might be a bit expensive, and I know you might hesitate and you might not want to spend more money on products that are vegan & cruelty free. I would just like to say that you would be saving a countless number of animals' lives. You would be making a difference in this world. Even if your friends & family are using products that aren't cruelty free doesn't mean you have to. I really hope this post helped to persuade you to stop using products that aren't cruelty free. I hope you do the right thing and stand up for the animals.
