For many years, beauty products have been tested on animals to determine whether they’re fit for human use. However, with the advancement of technology, science has found many other alternatives to subjecting animals to painful and often deadly tests. But not everyone is convinced that buying cruelty-free products really matters. To help clear the air, here’s why your beauty products should be cruelty-free.
You’re Protecting Many Different Animals
Animal testing isn’t just done on small mice and rodents. Some of the most common animals that labs test on are rabbits, monkeys, and even dogs. No animal deserves to be put through the pain of animal testing. Even animals that we don’t consider pets shouldn’t have to suffer. By choosing cruelty-free products, you’re supporting companies that take ethical production into consideration.
You’re Using Healthier Products
Typically, companies that are dedicated to being cruelty-free are also dedicated to using healthier ingredients. This is because cruelty-free companies also care about the environment and the impact that animal testing has on the earth. Because of this moral code, cruelty-free manufacturers want to use ingredients that have little to no environmental impact, which means the items you put on your skin aren’t just good for the earth—they’re good for you too. Organic beauty products are less likely to cause unwanted reactions or hurt sensitive skin.
You’re Making a Difference in the Industry
When you consistently choose cruelty-free products, you’re making a difference in the beauty community as a whole. Buying from manufacturers that you can trust means you’re funding projects that are dedicated to animal welfare and environmental protection. This also means you’re not funding labs and manufacturers that are more focused on making a profit than crafting a quality product. When you and other buyers make the active choice to buy cruelty-free, you’re taking another step toward changing the beauty industry for the better.
Knowing why your beauty products should be cruelty-free is the first step in changing the world, protecting the environment, and safeguarding the animals that live in it. And at Essential Wholesale & Labs, we’re not just cruelty-free—we also sell organic beauty products that you can always trust and feel confident using.
