They don't need to feed them the cosmetics : they aren't required to be non-toxic orally.
What could they ever put that is new that could suddenly be bad : They must have a pretty big list of what works/what doesnt, whats dangerous/whats
Are the animals abused when they suffer the evil consequences of wearing skin lotions, mascara and shampoo?
: my dogs and cats usually don't like to take their bath but they get used to it.
Why would they need to test in absurd, deadly and evil ways products that are made to "enhance" beauty?
I mean, I love animals and I want their full happiness but I don't see whats so wrong with animal testing for cosmetics. Cancer/bacteria/virus
experiments on animals are much more evil yet, all we see is that we shoudn't be abusing animal for COSMETICS testing.
I really don't get it, someone enlighten me on why the testing practices done on animal for cosmetics are ban worthy enough?
They take the products and put them in the animals eyes - purposely - to test just how bad a reaction a human might have. They do make the animals eat
the products as well. The products contain a number of things that, if digested, would be carcinogens. Chemical reactions from mixtures also burns the
fur and skin of the animals.
The difference between testing on cosmetics and for medical purposes is that cosmetics testing is not needed because, like you said, they have a list
of what works and what doesn't, plus they have alternatives and other ways to test chemical reactions. Furthermore, cosmetics are not needed if they
are not for medical use, like CoverFX is (although that brand still doesn't test on animals). Medical testing is fine because they can save people's
lives, and sometimes the lives of other non-human animals. Testing cosmetics, not so much.
Here's the info you need to know about animal testing for consumer products:
Please, educate yourself. These companies purposely do things they know
will injure those poor rabbits. It's sad and sickening. Rabbits are
the sweetest animals on the planet, are extremely smart and compassionate - I speak from experience.
