I was searching the internet for cruelty free products and was surprised to find that some of the household items I normally use come from companies that do animal testing: Soft Soap, Clorox, Tide, Pledge, S.O.S. , Tilex , to name a few. A more detailed list of the companies that do and don't do animal testing can be found at the links below.
I was just wondering how many of you try to buy cruelty free products when you're shopping. Are these companies actually doing physical harm to the animals and causing them pain, suffering and eventual death?
yes.. I will read the labels.. and check for “ not Tested” or “ cruelty Free” … and I will order from the internet if there is something I need in particular. Most of the time for cleaning I’ll use tried and true old time basic things.. like vinegar, baking soda….
thelifeofriley, I honestly have no idea how products are tested on animals or why. I do remeber hearing s tory eyars ago, but don't know how true it. It was a company that tested mascara on rabbits , and it wn't by putting it on the eyelahes.
It was mary kay cosmetics that were tested on animals in a big expose during the 80s.. I still remember having my Bloom County comic book "Night of the Mary Kay Commandoes". Nowdays I don't think any cosmetic company will admit to doing animal testing of the kind that Mary Kay was found to be doing.
I agree 100%, why don't they put it in their OWN eyes?? I'd feel a hell of a lot better knowing they did that than put it in a rabbit's eyes!! Geesh, what does that tell them if they put things in the animals' eyes?? DUH!! Most things are eye irritant!!! You're not supposed to put anything into your eyes, except fake tears and contacts!! OK, done ranting now, lol.
