We all want to look our best, but at what cost? Every year millions of animals are used in unnecessary tests; all for the sake of beauty. Testing on animals for beauty products is both unnecessary and unduly cruel.
Here at Regenerate Skin Care, we pride our selves in being 100% not tested on animals and vegan friendly. This means that none of our skin care products were tested on animals or contain any animal by products. We have made a commitment to ensuring that our customers receive the very best skin care available without harming animals.
What is animal testing?
Every year, millions of rabbits, dogs, cats and other animal are poisoned, burned and killed while being used as test subjects for toiletries, cosmetics and skin care. These tests are designed to determine if a product is safe for use by humans. These tests include irritation or corrosion to the skin or eye, dermal sensitization, endocrine disruption and finding the median lethal dose.
What are the alternatives to animal testing?
Many people might see animal testing as a necessary evil to ensure that the products that they use are safe and non-toxic. This could not be further from the truth. There is a list of over 5,000 ingredients that can be used in skin care products that have already been proven to be safe for humans. For new products and new combinations, there is a completely harmless testing process called in vitro testing that is a perfectly acceptable alternative.
What you might not know about animal testing.
There are many companies that do not test their products on animals during the production. This might make their products look cruelty free, but this is not always the case. Many of these companies export their skin care products to countries, like China, that require mandatory animal testing on all products before they are imported.
How can you help?
If you care about animal welfare and want to stop these companies from testing their products on animals, there are a few things that you can do to help.
- Buy cruelty free products. Let you wallet speak for you. By purchasing products that are tested on animals, you are supporting those companies and continuing the cycle of violence. Ensure that you are making ethical choices when you are purchasing your skin care.
- Do your research. Skin care companies are not going to place on their label that their products were tested on animals. Do a little research into the company and product to see if they are cruelty free or not.
- Join organisations such as PETA to learn how you can help stop animal testing.
Anti ageing skin care products do not have to be tested on animals to prove that they are safe and effective.
