Cruelty-Free Baby Drugstore Brands

It’s sad to even think about that a lot of beauty, cleaning, and baby products test on animals. We are in a modern era where so many alternatives exist but these companies don’t see it as an option when it’s not even required by law to experiment on beautiful creatures. These animals includes rabbits, rats, cats, dogs (Beagle Freedom Project), monkeys, etc. To me these companies is not worth buying from. I don’t want my money to contribute to these atrocities and this is why I always like being aware of brands that are cruelty-free.

Cruelty-Free, Baby, Drugstore Brands, No animal testing

In this Infographic I have included brands that are accessible at drugstores. I was surprised to see how many exist now days! Just five years ago when my little Lyn was a baby it wasn’t too easy to find this many. Now there are plenty of options. I like these brands because they tend to be more plant-based, meaning many of them don’t use ingredients derived from animals, and contain less harsh chemicals.

These companies don’t believe in harming other sentient beings and to me that means a lot! It’s a sign that they are informed companies in using safe alternatives to test their ingredients. Some of these alternatives include…

  • In Vitro testing – Harvard’s Wyss Institute has created “organs-on-chips” that contain human cells grown in a state-of-the-art system to mimic the structure and function of human organs and organ systems. The chips can be used instead of animals in disease research, drug testing, and toxicity testing and have been shown to replicate human physiology, diseases, and drug responses more accurately than crude animal experiments do. Some companies, such as the HµRel Corporation, have already turned these chips into products that other researchers can use in place of animals.
  • Computer (in silico) modeling – Researchers have developed a wide range of sophisticated computer models that simulate human biology and the progression of developing diseases. Studies show that these models can accurately predict the ways that new drugs will react in the human body and replace the use of animals in exploratory research and many standard drug tests. 
  • Research with human volunteers – A method called “microdosing” can provide vital information on the safety of an experimental drug and how it is metabolized in humans prior to large-scale human trials. Volunteers are given an extremely small one-time drug dose, and sophisticated imaging techniques are used to monitor how the drug behaves in the body. Microdosing can replace certain tests on animals and help screen out drug compounds that won’t work in humans so that they won’t needlessly advance to government-required animal testing.
  • Human-Patient simulators – Life-like computerized human-patient simulators that breathe, bleed, convulse, talk, and even “die” have been shown to teach students physiology and pharmacology better than crude exercises that involve cutting up animals. The most high-tech simulators mimic illnesses and injuries and give the appropriate biological response to medical interventions and injections of medications. Ninety-seven percent of medical schools across the U.S. have completely replaced the use of animal laboratories in medical training with simulators like this, as well as virtual-reality systems, computer simulators, and supervised clinical experience.

I hope this was helpful for you and makes it easier to find cruelty-free brands to help animals from being tested on. If you also believe this shouldn’t be an option please consider buying only from ethical companies. For a more complete list of cruelty-free brands check out Peta and Leaping Bunny.

“We have moved away from studying human disease in humans. … We all drank the Kool-Aid on that one, me included. … The problem is that [animal testing] hasn’t worked, and it’s time we stopped dancing around the problem. … We need to refocus and adapt new methodologies for use in humans to understand disease biology in humans.” —Dr. Elias Zerhouni

    There is simply no reason to be. Getting these items and supplies at low prices is nothing feel shameful over and it can actually save you hundreds of dollars in the long run which can go to baby's college fund.

    Having read this I believed it was extremely enlightening.
    I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this information together.
    I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and commenting.

    But so what, it was still worthwhile!
