Most makeup products that women use in their daily lives has effected the life of an animal. Brands are putting much harm on small creatures in order to ensure the safety of humans and to make money. They don't understand the cruelty of these tests and that there are alternatives. Why put the poor creatures through this when we do not have to. With the help of scientist fighting against the cause, they have made new tests that do not include the harming of any animals. The current test irritates their skin, blinds them, poisons them, and ruins their bodily functions. The inhumanity needs to come to a stop and with one signature you can speak up for these innocent animals without a voice.

The animals should not be tested on for a wide amount of reasons. One reason is because there are alternative tests for the testing of drugs, cosmetics, and medications. It's called a test tube test or a vitro test. This way uses human cells and tissue to practice tests. It obviously makes more sense because we are testing the effects of humans, not animals. Another reason is just that. Humans are human. Rats are not human. Mice are not human. So, how are those animals supposed to give us information on how humans will react with certain chemicals? They don't. They show us how their species will react and scientist are taking this as if we react the exact same. After all of the pain and harm scientist are doing to the poor animals, the test don't always matter. When brands test their animals and the tests fail by a small amount they still shelf their products for consumers to buy. There is no reason to run the tests if they are useless. Brands are hurting thousands of animals every year. These brands include Maybelline, Avon, Victoria's Secret beauty line, OPI, Mary Kay, Nars, Elizabeth Arden, Benefit, Clinique, Makeup Forever, and many more. These brands have either no morals or have gone against theit morals. Putting a stop to purchasing these products can open their eyes as to what they're doing is wrong. 

A few brands that don't test their cosmetics on animals include Kat Von D, Hourglass, Too Faced, Urban Decay, The Balm, Nude Stix, Elf, Boxum, Lush, IT Cosmetics, Becca, Jordana, Josie Maran, Tarte, Nyx, Pixi, BH Cosmetics, Pur Cosmetics, Mineral Fusion, and the list goes on and on. These brands do not sell thie products in China due to the strict laws requiring test on animals. Some of these brands are actually trying to go fully organic. Kat Von D is in the middle of tranferring all of their products to being organic. This brand has four titles of top rated products. Testing your products on animals doesn't make you any better and Kat Von D proved it.
