WHICH ANIMALS COMMONLY SUBJECTED TO ANIMAL CRUELTY?
Investigations show Rabbits to be the most popular choice for carrying out cruel chemical tests and Rats, hamsters, and mice are also widely tortured.
HOW MANY ANIMALS ARE KILLED EACH YEAR DUE TO COSMETIC TESTING?
As per facts, each year, more than 100 million animals including rabbits, mice, hamsters, rats, cats, frogs and other innocent beings are killed for curiosity-driven experimentation of cosmetic industry giants.
WHAT ANIMAL TESTS MEAN?
Animal tests typically include experimentation by rubbing chemicals onto shaved skin, dripping them into their eyes or through oral administration. Forcefully fed or pushed into testing which goes on for weeks to determine the dosage beyond which the chemicals are lethal. This leads to unnatural deaths of several animals. The process is harsh with zero concern for the excruciating pain that these little beings face. Pain relief is not provided post completion of all tests.
IS IT NECESSARY TO CARRY OUT ANIMAL TESTING TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF HUMANS?
Absolutely not. Companies must do thorough studies of their formula. in order to reduce the number of trial and errors. Rabbit Skin care be spared and human skin cultures can be grown as well as purchased for testing. They are not only safe but also superior and more accurate.
WHY DO COMPANIES STILL CONTINUE WITH THE PRACTICE OF ANIMAL TESTING?
There is only one-word answer for this obvious and natural question, which is Convention. Due to years of continued practice. The companies have become complacent. and refuse to adapt to technology out of sheer indifferent attitude towards animals. All they care about is profits. This is compounded with the fairly difficult availability of testing alternatives in the market. The simple solution to this issue is the usage of age-old science that has already been tried, tested and certified, while manufacturing the products. That’s how most of the cruelty-free companies function!
IS ANIMAL TESTING FULL PROOF?
No, such tests have many scientific limitations owing to different breeds, species and varied personal responses owing to the uniqueness of an animal. The lack of scientific credibility creates a cloud of doubt and makes us question the mere existence of these barbaric tests.
