Why You Should Choose Cruelty-Free Cosmetics
When shopping for cosmetics, it is very important that you look for the cruelty-free bunny. Millions of animals all around the world are tortured and killed every year by cosmetics manufacturers through animal testing. Also by the harvesting of mink hair for mink lashes.
In order for you to understand why buying cruelty-free products is so important, you need to know what happens to animals used for testing.
Animals such as dogs, cats, chimps, rabbits, rats, mice, and guinea pigs get cosmetics rubbed onto their skin, eyes, and ears everyday for 90 days to test for a reaction. After the 90 days, they are killed, cut open, and the internal organs removed to search for further reactions.
“Typically a young rabbit is tightly constrained in a box so that he is unable to move... Clips sometimes hold his eyelids open. Anesthesia is not generally administered. A researcher applies a concentrated substance to the outer layer of the eye and observes over a span days or weeks for responses such as blindness, bleeding, hemorrhaging and ulceration. At the end, the rabbits are generally killed.”

An international study revealed that animal testing resulted in only 65% accuracy predicting toxicity in humans.
That means, that millions of animals are tortured and killed every year for only 65% accuracy.
