Finding vegan and cruelty-free products can be somewhat of a hassle. Often, we have to shop online or go out of our way to shop at a health store. Surprisingly, this is not the case with cruelty-free household cleaners. Many are available at your local supermarket or pharmacy.
Let me start by saying that I am very well aware that humane farming labels are sometimes misleading. Factory farms often label their products “humane” as a marketing ploy. The term “humane” is not defined or regulated by the USDA and therefore producers can use it as they please. You can read more on that here.
It is difficult to understand why in the 21st century real animal fur is still a thing. With so many faux-fur brands and other cruelty-free fabric options available, there’s no reason why anyone should wear real fur.
Finding cruelty-free acne treatments can be a difficult task. Most acne treatment brands are owned by household product, cosmetic, or pharmaceutical companies that test on animals where required by law.
You’ve dumped your old shampoo, body wash, and even your laundry soap for cruelty-free alternatives. But have you paid any mind to your hair removal routine? Hair removal products are often overlooked when making the switch to a cruelty-free lifestyle, but nonetheless, the industry is not a very animal-friendly one.
Most people are shocked to find out that contacts are tested on animals, mainly rabbits. I was shocked too. I always knew that my contact solution was tested on animals, but I never even thought about my contacts. The fact is that all contact lens brands sold in the US are tested on animals, and so are the contact solutions.
More than 50 million animals are killed each year for their skin or fur. The methods used to kill these animals are barbaric. They are often gassed and electrocuted, which seems gentle compared to another common method of being skinned alive.
