Animals such as rats, mice, rabbits and guinea pigs are often tested on in labs. These tests are painful, inhumane and unnecessary. It is unnecessary as there are other ways to test these products.
People do these tests on animals so that they can sell cosmetics such as lipstick, mascara, eyeshadow, face wash and moisturiser in shops and claim that they are safe. This is not always true because animals are so different for us, just because it is safe on them does not mean it is safe for us.
To help stop this from happening we can take a stand and choose to check the label of products we buy. If the product does not have a cruelty free label just don't buy it.
