Animal Testing

I am a passionate animal lover. I love nearly all of them (except cockroaches!). 

I am a vegetarian and am completely against animal testing!!

To put it simply, certain companies keep adorable and helpless little animals (cats, dogs, monkeys, pigs - anything they can get their hands on) in cages and test their products on their eyes, skin and actually feed the products to them. It's disguting and cruel. I am getting teary just thinking about these poor things. Imagine if they were your pet bunny, kitty or puppy...shudder.

I don't think they should be putting ingredients into products that they need to test because they might hurt people,  and who thought this would be a good idea in the first place?!

So, I only buy cosmetics that don't get tested on animals. If I get beauty boxes or samples I will link to whether or not the manufacturer tests on animals and I will be giving those products to friends or family to use (better not to waste them I think).

I use PETA's list (I do not agree with everything PETA does but I do agree with treating animals a million times better than what we do) to figure out who tests or not, and also I usually google 'COMPANY animal testing". Sometimes it's hard, and I have bought products before to find out later they actually are tested. We can only do our best I suppose. 

Sometimes there are certain things that have to be tested according to law...this is where it gets complicated. For instance MAC have products that I adore, but they are owned by Estee Lauder who test when the law says they have to. What are we supposed to do?
