Spread the Love
We are here on earth with an equal divine purpose; to LOVE. To give and receive love in all ways possible.
Unfortunately it seems we have forgotten to love and take care of our nature; our plants, flowers, trees, animals and ourselves.
“Care for Plants and Animals,
as they form our Nature.”
– Marienne G. D.
A Materialized World
We live in a time where our appearance plays a big role in our lives. It’s only naturally that we want to look good, wear beautiful clothing, perfumes, lotions and whatnot.
But before we are able to purchase any items and/or products, they need to be approved (depending on the country) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA requires testing to predict safety and effectiveness.
Testing NOT Required on Animals
Although products need to be tested, it does not state anywhere that FDA requires the testing to be performed on animals. Further more, science shows animals are too different than us humans, to give accurate results.
I agree, that we do have the right to feel and look good, great even if you will, but NOT at the expense of our animal friends.
Testing may include eye irritation test, where they drip chemicals in the eyes. Skin irritation test, where they shave the animal and rub the chemicals on its bare skin. Forcing animals to swallow or inhale substances or through injections.
Alternatives to Animal Testing
There could be a solution to stop all this pain and suffering. Replace animal testing with modern and human alternatives.

“You are truly Full of Beauty,
when you’re Free of Cruelty.”
– Marienne G. D.
Cruelty-free products are developed or manufactured by methods that do not involve any testing on animals.
With that being said, unfortunately there is no clear legal definition on what is considered cruelty-free. For example, some manufacturers may imply to be cruelty free, as they did not conduct the tests, but relied on a supplier to test for them instead. Or, that although the ingredients have been tested on animals, the final product has not.
To avoid confusion, it is highly recommended to follow the shopping guide by The Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC). The CCIC administers a cruelty-free standard, called the Leaping Bunny Program, for companies producing cosmetic, personal care, and household products.
The Leaping Bunny Program and Leaping Bunny Logo, are the world’s only internationally recognized 100% cruelty-free certification. The Leaping Bunny aims to drive animal testing out of industry practice completely.
Feel free to learn more about the Leaping Bunny Program where you can also Take the Cruelty-Free Pledge, to only purchase beauty products from companies that do not test finished products, ingredients or formulations on animals.
