Cruelty-Free Beauty Brands


I know it's not always easy to see this type of images, but it's the harsh reality. I think it's better to be informed than to unknowingly continuing to support this cruelty. Such companies use rats, dogs, cats, monkeys, etc. to test their ingredients on. It's quite common sense, companies who tend to use harsh chemicals test on animals, companies who use ingredients that are plant based tend not to test on animals and are more eco-friendly. So not only it's safer for us to use, but also for those who surround us, like babies, and pets.
It's in our hands to stop this, and how? We can always call or send e-mails to companies who continue to support this practice. Encourage them to use cruelty-free methods for testing. If you feel like you don't have the time to contact them, the best way to help is simply by buying from companies who DON'T test on animals. I have included in this post a list of the most popular brands. You can always visit Leaping Bunny or Peta for the most updated list.

Sé que no siempre es fácil ver este tipo de imágenes, pero es la dura realidad. Pienso que es mejor estar  informado que continuar apoyando esta crueldad sin saberlo. Tales compañías usan a ratas, perros, gatos, monos, etc. para probar sus ingredientes. Tiene sentido, compañias que tienden a usar quimicos fuertes experimentan en animales, compañias que usan ingredientes a base de plantas no tienden a experimenta en animales y es mejor para el medio ambiente. No solo es más seguro para nosotros usar, sino que tambien para los que nos rodean, como bebes y mascotas.

¿Estara en nuestras manos parar esto, y cómo? Nosotros siempre podemos llamar o enviar correos electrónicos a compañías que siguen apoyando esta práctica. Anímelos a usar métodos sin crueldad para sus pruebas. Si piensas que no tienes el tiempo para contactarlos, el mejor modo de ayudar es simplemente comprando de compañías que NO PRUEBAN en animales. He incluido en este post una lista de las marcas más populares. Para una lista más actualizada puedes ir a Leaping Bunny o Peta.
