Animals have been used in cruel experiments in the cosmetics industry for many decades. Rabbits have become associated with animal testing for cosmetics and images of them being cut, burned, and tortured while new formulas of lipstick and moisturizers are tested on them, have caused compassionate people to opt for products that are labeled cruelty-free.
A petition written by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is calling on the world’s leading cosmetics manufacturer, L’Oréal, to get behind them on their #becrueltyfree campaign. According to the petition, L’Oréal claims they do not support or conduct animal testing with their products, yet they sell in China, where animal tests are required for cosmetics.
HSUS is urging L’Oréal to join over 200 other cruelty-free brands and 37 countries who have already banned cruel animal tests for cosmetics. If you agree that L’Oréal should live up to their proclaimed beliefs, then please take a moment to sign the petition and voice your opinion.
Many cosmetics companies do not conduct animal tests or make products that contain animal-derived ingredients. To learn about some of these cruelty-free brands, check this out.
And please share this with your friends and encourage them to #becrueltyfree!
