Recently I told you about the dirty little secret that is testing cosmetic products on animals.
This week I learned that the UK has increased its’ testing on animals by 52% from the year 2000.
Listen, you humans, there is ONLY ONE WAY to stop this. And that’s when you STOP buying products that are testing on animals.
Oh, I know, you want to have soft skin. Just remember next time you smooth that fancy lotion on your legs that it was first rubbed in the eyes of a rabbit.
Yeah, good luck getting THAT image out of your head. So, ready to change your ways?
To be a shopper of conscience, you have to be savvy. Just because a product’s label says “cruelty-free,” it doesn’t necessarily mean the product wasn’t tested on animals, at least in the US. There is no legal definition of the term, so companies can say a product is cruelty-free if the final product wasn’t testing on animals, but there was testing done on individual ingredients or during product development.
That’s why you want to ensure products you use include the Leaping Bunny logo. The Leaping Bunny logo means the company has agreed to open their records up to Leaping Bunny at any time to verify there’s no animal products or testing used.
Alternately, The Caring Consumer logo means the company has agreed with PETA to not use animal products or animal testing in its products. However, there’s no regulation to ensure that’s the case.
So get out your reading glasses and start looking for those cute little symbols on the products you buy.
Or you can download the Leaping Bunny app for iPhone or Android and shop with confidence!
Please do your part to end this barbaric practice of animal testing today!
