#StopAnimalCruelty

By: Johanna Ramirez-Perez

Over the years, many cosmetic companies have used animals in order to test new products, using them to test new formulas using a variety of chemicals. During this process, animals are forced to eat or inhale substances that could kill them, and most do end up being harmed or killed. This year, many audiences have learned about these practices and have reached out to stop animal testing in makeup products. There have also been many trending hashtags spreading all across America in an attempt to speak up to stop animal cruelty. Common animals that have been used for animal testing include:

-Mice                

-Fish 

-Dogs 

-Cats 

-Rabbits 

-Birds 

-Pigs 

-Monkeys                                                                                           

Millions of these innocent animals are locked up inside cages in labs being prepared to be tortured and suffer. These animals cannot defend themselves and have no other choice but to wait in fear while the procedure starts. 

What can you do? 

There are a variety of brands that are cruelty free that you can purchase. If you own brands that aren’t cruelty-free, finish the products and don’t purchase them again. If you see a friend with products that aren’t cruelty-free, explain and encourage them to purchase non-animal cruelty brands. By not purchasing these brands that test animals, it will push government agencies to stop sponsoring and performing animal testing.
