It’s almost time to head out as that guy you like will be picking you up any second. You put on your makeup, making sure you look good. You know your favorite products will not let you down. What you don’t know is that it took the company tons of tries testing each of those products to make sure it was finally safe to put on your skin. In those tries, a few bunnies or mice were put through pain and torture before being killed just so you could have luscious looking lashes or flawless looking skin. A minimum of 100 million animals are burned, crippled, poisoned, abused and killed in labs in the U.S. every year.Animals are used in testing labs and go through torturous experiments to make sure the cosmetic item is safe for humans to use before sold to the public. It varies around the world, but the typical animals used for testing in labs are mice, rats, rabbits, guinea pigs/hamsters, birds, cats, dogs and even monkeys or chimpanzees. The animals are exposed to toxics, drugs, chemicals and infectious diseases that cause pain, illness or even death. Some animals are even deprived of food and water. Wounds, burns and human diseases are also given to the animals to help the testing at times. After testing in the animal, they kill them by using carbon dioxide, breaking theirs necks, decapitating them or killing them in the process of testing.According to Cruelty Free International, the estimated top ten countries in order using animal testing in the world are the U.S.A., Japan, China, Australia, France, Canada, the U.K., Germany, Taiwan and Brazil. Israel and India have put a ban on both animal testing and the sale or import of newly tested beauty products. Meanwhile, in China, the government orders animal tests to be done on all cosmetic products imported into the country and may do this on items pulled from the shelves in stores as well.Fifty billion is put into research each year by the U.S. drug industry even with the mice and rats only being accurate 43% of the time. In order to help animal testing stop pay attention to all of your cosmetic products when purchasing. Even if the item says it is cruelty free, it may not be. As the company probably did not test on animals, the companies that created the ingredients that go into the product may have been tested on animals. A few companies that are said to be cruelty free are Elf, NYX, LUSH, Urban Decay, Too Faced, IT Cosmetics, Tarte and Anastasia Beverly Hills.Animal testing is completed to make sure products are safe enough for human use. I don’t see the point in the testing if it is not always accurate. Animals killed just for our beauty as it is mostly done with cosmetic products such as lotions, shampoos, hair care, makeup and fragrances. Research your products before buying. If you ban animal testing companies out of your life, we can have them banned from everyone’s.
