Five Reasons to Switch to Cruelty Free Cosmetics
These five reasons prove the importance of making the switch to cruelty free products.
1. Keep Cute and Cuddly Video Stars Alive
You might enjoy watching viral videos of cute animals.
You probably never think about how many cute animals suffer to make the cosmetics you use. Many cosmetic companies test on animals. This means when you use their products, you're supporting animal testing.
Animal testing is:
- outdated because of the use of 3D models and cells
- prone to inaccuracies
It's inaccurate because ingredients that harm people will not always harm animals (and vice versa.)
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not require animal testing to ensure the safety of cosmetics.
Switching to cosmetics that don't animal test is one of the most effective ways to protect animals, cute or not.
2. Stop Using Animal Ingredients
Some cosmetic companies say they don't test on animals. However, they still make products that contain animal ingredients.
Glycerin is one such ingredient.
Natural cosmetics enhance your beauty without killing animals. There's no reason to use these ingredients when they can be produced naturally, without violence.
3. Stop Drenching Your Skin with Harmful Chemicals Harmful Chemicals
Advertisers try to tell you that mainstream cosmetics nurture your skin.
Instead, those products drench it with parabens and other dangerous chemicals. Some of the chemicals are classified as carcinogens.
An all natural cosmetics line wants you to look good and be healthy.
A good practice to get into is looking at the ingredients on the beauty products you use. If you don't know what they are, you probably don't want to use them.
4. It Saves Money
Cruelty free cosmetics save money for consumers and for companies. They last a long time. You don't have to use as much all at once. And they don't charge for excessive packaging because cruelty free cosmetic companies keep their packaging streamlined.
This brings us to the final reason to make the switch.
5. Green Packaging
Companies that avoid hurting animals and that avoid using dangerous chemicals also care about packaging. Sure they make their products look good, but they use recycled products and less materials in packaging.
This lessens waste and manufacturing dangers, helping to protect our air, land, and water. It's called reducing and reusing. It's time to make the switch.
