Would You Harm a Bunny Rabbit?

There are several myths surrounding cosmetic animal testing. These myths are circulated by companies that still use animals for testing cosmetics. They are meant to confuse consumers and to keep money flowing into their corporate coffers.
- “It’s the law.” The law does not require companies to test cosmetics on animals. On March 11, 2013 the European Union passed laws banning the importing and sale of animal tested cosmetic products and ingredients. This will hopefully be the beginning of worldwide change.
- “Animals are set free after being used.” There are no farms with wide, open spaces for former lab animals to roam free. The fact is that most animals die during testing.
- “There are no alternatives.” Companies can use ingredients that have already been tested and proven safe. There are also new technologies available that can test new products in a fraction of the time that it takes when using animals. Companies simply must make the choice.
Here is a list of some of the large companies that continue to use animal testing.
- Max Factor
- Johnson & Johnson
Easy Eye Solutions is a cruelty free company and always will be.
