Let’s put a stop to Animal Testing.

Hello hedgehogs,

I’m afraid this won’t be like normal posts, it’s more of a rant and informing you how YOU can help to end this. *Caution* read the links about animal testing at your own risk. They aren’t too graphic, but could cause upset.

I’m sure a huge, huge amount of you already are completely aware and against this. But if we all knew or cared about it, it wouldn’t still be a thing.

Animal. Testing. Since when did those two words become such a normal phrase? Who in there deluded mind would think humans are superior enough to force helpless animals to be tested on? The animal kingdom has been here since way before us, so how come just because we have two legs to walk on and a voice box, we suddenly have the right to inflict prolonged pain (and a lot more much, much worse things) on innocent creatures , for what?- your own financial benefit? Sick. It makes me shiver just to think that.

Because guess what? Animals have feelings too. They can feel pain. Of course they can? I wouldn’t want this to happen to my own pets, so why would I want it happening to others exactly the same as mine? Think about it.

What’s more- PRODUCTS DO NOT NEED TO BE TESTED ON ANIMALS. There are scientific methods of testing with more accurate results. There is a stamp on the back of shampoos, beauty products, shower gels, face scrubs that says ‘dermatologically tested’  or ‘not tested on animals’ or the ‘cruelty free’ logo (a little bunny). The likelihood is, if there isn’t anything like that- it isn’t cruelty free, and has involved rabbits, mice, you name it, just so you can have that product.

So why do we still test on animals?

You tell me. Most of tests carried out on animals DON’T EVEN APPLY TO HUMANS. You simply cannot justify it, however much M.A.C tells us ‘we’d rather not test on animals but it’s to do with regulations in China blah blah blah’ it’s rubbish. If you truly didn’t want companies to test on animals, you’d do something about it, and when you fail, you don’t work for them. You make a stand. Because if nobody does, it will keep on happening. And you’ll be a part of that.

Animals are not ours to experiment on. Ever.

so…How YOU can help?

There are multiple campaigns running by the likes of The Body Shop, and Lush. You can sign the Body Shop’s fight against it here. (I have signed it too) and see Lush’s work here.

But you can also look on products before you buy them to see if they have the stamp and are cruelty free-assured. If products tested on animals aren’t bought, something will have to change. You don’t have to stop wearing make-up or not use shampoo- just look at different producers.

Here is a list of companies that DON’T TEST ON ANIMALS ❤ ❤ :

I hope you reading this can be the change we need, make a speech at school or write a blog post about it. Reblog this, anything!

I’m so thankful if you read to the end, I’ll include some websites that probably explain things better than I did. Thank you so much. ❤

Important websites to explain more.

  1. Hi Tabi!

    I’ve known about this issue for a while now, but it sort of slipped my mind recently. Now that I’m vegetarian, hopefully transitioning into veganism as soon as possible, I’ve been trying to cover all fronts and be totally ethical, and this post has been a great help! So far, I’ve gotten rid of all my makeup that tests on animals, and I’m in the process of getting rid of other unethical products.

  2. I’m going to have to reblog this. This is a huge issue and especially for me, living on a farm with heaps of animals. The companies who test on animals amazed me, I use Head & Shoulders and on the packaging they say that it’s not tested on animals. You really can’t trust what you see. Those poor animals.

  3. Thank you so much for following my blog!
    I’d just like to say how true this post is. Too true.
    If I d that people do not recognise how terrible this world is getting when they’re engrossed in tech but you have shown something different. I freaking love your blog right now.
    Amazing illustrations too, I love every thing around here!
    Thank you once again,
    Erin, xx

  4. Wow! I wasn’t aware of how many companies tested on animals!! 😡 How dare they…
    I mean, why do makeup companies even need to test on animals? Animals don’t wear makeup heehee…and shouldn’t they be using natural products in the first place? This was a great post, Tabi! Keep of the Animal Awareness!

  5. I wholeheartedly agree. This is an issue I am really passionate about and I can’t believe we are still needing to fight animal testing when there is so much information out there about how animals get depressed, have empathy and obviously feel pain!!! It is sooo frustrating that people continue to support unethical practices at the expense of helpless little animals. It is so unfair that while some bunnies and mice etc. are being loved as pets others are locked in horrible tiny cages!!! (Sorry for the rant, just needed to vent)

    1. No no you musn’t apologise for ranting- it needs to be said! ❤ I agree with every word, why are they still being used when it doesn't even provide results, why?? For the fun? Doesn't seem very fun to me. I totally agree, animals feel pain just like us, so why treat them like they are being treated? ❤

  6. I agree with this 100% – how animals are treated by humanity is awful. Animal testing, eating animals…there’s absolutely no need for it all. This is why I’m so desperate to be vegan, and this is why all makeup and skincare products I own are cruelty free and vegan. WE DON’T NEED THE ANIMALS!!! Why can’t we just let them live?
    Amazing post❤
    By the way, are you vegan? I’m not too sure if you are or not!🙂

    1. I know! It’s just dreadful! Oh that’s amazing of you, and you sound like such a good-minded person ❤ I already don't eat meat (for a long time now) and am trying to reduce how much dairy I consume, because I do not like consuming it, but there just aren't enough options to replace just yet. ❤

      1. Aw thanks!
        Oh, there’s so many options to replace dairy – it’s never been easier! I can help you out with it if you need🙂 Or my latest post might help a bit! Trust me not consuming dairy is the easiest thing, it’s the first thing I gave up in my transition of veganism😄

  7. Thank you for sharing this Tabi! This is something I’m trying to get more involved. I’m trying to buy products that are cruelty-free. I’ve always been a fan of NYX, so I’m glad that they’re on the cruelty-free list! 😀

  8. You know, I’m not the least bit surprised that the companies on the no-testing list included some I had never heard of, and the testing list had every single company that I practically support on an every-day basis. This is so sad… And to think, people think testing on animals is actually okay.

  9. This post was eye-opening. I’m disgusted, that so many popular companies would do such a cruel thing. Thank you for posting this. Keep doing what you do, and you’ll definitely be able to make a difference. ❤

  10. I realised a while ago that i had so much makeup which test on animals and it’s surprising that nearly all of my makeup collection have loads of them! I’m trying to look for alternatives, as well as alternatives for everyday products such as toothpaste and stuff!

      1. A lot of companies when asked if they test on animals word their policies in a really complex way which of course does make it hard to understand but im glad theres websites out there to tell us what companies test on animals and which dont!!xx

      2. Oh my goodness thank god I’m not the only one who can see that!! It’s awful, like trying to hope their customers are stupid so they don’t realise they do test on animals 😦 😦 x

  11. I have a few brands left in my collection that still test on animals, but I’ve been trying to buy less & less and replace them with other options. This is super helpful to see them all laid out in graphics like this, thanks lovely! such an important message! 🙂

  12. Thank you for writing about this! It’s so important! More and more I have been trying to use natural products, free of harmful chemicals but I think buying from companies that don’t test on animals is just as important! If we all started using products made by responsible companies, it would send such a great message! I have used products by Physician’s Formula; another great company is Burt’s Bees!

    1. That’s so amazing! I always look out for natural products- they often are better for you anyway! So so true! We need to buy from them more! Burt’s Bees is another amazing company, thank you for sharing! ❤ xx

  13. The poor animals. Animal testing is terrible! My family doesn’t buy from any of the companies that test on animals. One of the brands we buy from most is, Norwex! And they don’t test on animals. Great post, by the way, Tabi! 🙂
