It's cruel. It's horrid an it's absolutely unnecessary.
When one thinks of animal testing, what comes to mind? Poor tortured bunnies in cages or the simple fact that leads to yet another question...If these cosmetics and skin lotions and potions are not potentially harmful why would we even have to test on animals? Why? Why? Why?
Doesn't that make you cringe when thinking of brands that test on animals? Doesn't that worry you one bit that your favorite cosmetic company has to first test their concoctions on an animal to think that their product is safe? doesn't that make you wonder what kind of ingredients they are using? What kind of toxic gunk would hurt an animal in a lab? Certainly not Shea or Cocoa butter my friends....
Truth be told, whenever you buy from a brand that tests on animals, YOU are supporting this cruel act. You are basically saying that this is ok. That they can do it. And that is not ok.
That is not ok because over 100 million animals are burned, crippled, poisoned, and abused in US labs every year. These animals have feelings as much as we do so why in the world is the world supporting this disgusting torture?
When we first started to create Delizioso Skincare it never even came to mind to let alone consider testing our products on animals. Delizioso Skincare is artisan crafted out of ingredients that are food for your skin so why in the world would we test these goodies on anyone but ourselves or our family?
You can rest assured that all these divine products are NEVER EVER tested on animals.
And for the reasoning that so many would understand...They are made out of ingredients proven to be safe. Like Aloe, and Cherry Kernel, and Apricot Seeds and Cucumbers! How can we go wrong with these? After all, they come from foodgrade sources.
So to open your eyes a little wider, here are some facts in regards to animal testing...
-When used in cosmetic tests, mice, rats, rabbits, and guinea pigs are often subjected to skin and eye irritation tests where chemicals are rubbed on shaved skin or dripped into the eyes without any pain relief.
-In tests of potential carcinogens, subjects are given a substance every day for 2 years. Others tests involve killing pregnant animals and testing their fetuses.
-No experiment is illegal, no matter how cruel, irrelevant to human health, redundant, or painful.
-Ninety five percent of animals used for experiments are excluded from the only federal law offering any sort of protection.
