Thought Room's comment on my last post made me check if the eye pencil I was using had blinded a monkey, or my shampoo had been poured into a rabbit's eyes (forced open) to keep my eyes safe. Did I indirectly support animal testing?
Peta (People for Ethical treatment of Animals) says:
'Hundreds of thousands of these animals are poisoned, blinded, and killed every year in outdated and ineffective product tests for shampoos, household cleaners, cosmetics, hairsprays, and other personal care and household items. Although more than 600 companies have banned all animal tests forever, some corporations still force substances into animals' stomachs and drip chemicals into rabbits' eyes.'
Companies that conduct cruel tests on animals.
SAY NO TO THESE
Johnson & Johnson
Olay Co./Oil of Olay
Hindustan Unilever (Lakme, Vaseline Intensive care etc.)
WILL YOU HURT AN ANIMAL WHEN YOU DON'T HAVE TO?
To my relief I found I could still use shampoos, eye pencils, lipsticks and moisturizers and send a message to companies that are still testing on animals. They need our support to continue their cruel experiments. If we refuse to encourage them by buying their products, they will stop their cruel testing on animals.
We do have a choice.
Buy only from companies that DO NOT test their products on animals. Here are some easily available good products that have not been tested on animals.(click on the names for more information)
Bodyshop (there's some controversy, judge for yourself)
Lotus Herbals Ltd
Fabindia (written on the label)
Liz Clairbon...and many, many others. (click to read a longer list)
