How are you today?
A few months ago I watched a video on YouTube about animal testing and I felt sick, I’m not the kind of person to get all squeamish but that was a bit hard-core. Knowing how social media works more videos on the subject showed up on my feed, so I saw another and another and i wondered how can companies still practise animal testing considering the amount of data available not to do so, I can understand some testing if it allows to save lives but make-up and other household products it’s just unnecessary.
Researched on-line some information from organizations whose purpose is to inform you and not only to shock and PETA’s website came up straight away, they have a list of Cruelty Free Brands and Products that you can filter by country, product type etc., also, it features key symbols for vegan, PETA logo included brands and Mall Partner ones (link below).
Although PETA’s website is extremely helpful, there’s a bit more to it as some brands belong to a parent company that still conducts animal testing at some stage of the manufacturing process, although in Europe animal testing is forbidden, outside Europe is a different matter, a good example is that any brand that manufactures and/or sells in China is by Chinese law obligated to conduct animal testing and some brands don’t do it but pay Chinese laboratories to do it for them.
So, if you want to know more about animal testing and cruelty-free brands take a look at PETA’s website.
