Cruelty-Free- Make the right choice

by Raghav Mittal on January 19, 2022

The term Cruelty-Free suggests that in the animal rights movement, cruelty-free is a label for products or activities that do not harm or kill animals anywhere in the world. Most people assume that if a product is called “cruelty-free”, it means that no animal testing has occurred to produce it. But there is no fixed definition of the term, many companies claim “cruelty-free” meaning that they did not try the final products on the animals, however, that does not mean the company didn’t hire an outside company for animal testing while calling it cruelty-free.
Individual ingredients are also tested on animals at different stages of the production process.
Not only from the ethical & moral perspective but otherwise also cruelty-free products are generally healthier.

Reasons why you should immediately switch to cruelty-free products:

- Opting for products that aren’t tested on animals means that you are also abandoning toxic chemicals like parabens, sulfates, and synthetic dyes mean less odds for breakouts, allergies, and inflammation.

- Cruelty-free products use less chemicals as the commonly used chemicals in products that are used for animal testing are harmful not only to those applying them to their skin but also to the environment & our planet. These Chemicals don't necessarily belong to our skin.

- It results in more heedful beauty practices as we are reducing our options to products not tested on animals, leads to a better experience in the skincare aisle. Fewer choices mean more mindful decisions and the opportunity to really consider if a brand or a product will be a great addition to your skincare routine.

- These tests are conducted not only on rabbits but also on mice, cats, and even dogs who are subjected to chemicals that we would never consider putting on our own pets. Researches have shown that these animals are kept in small cages and are often maimed, blinded, or killed.

- Like a famous saying suggests, “If you want to change the world, start with yourself first”. This is your chance to bring the change and start a revolution by saying no to your usual brand and shifting to a completely CRUELTY-FREE brands, it’s your time to make a smart choice.

It's a win-win for humans and animals to stop animal testing. Choosing to buy only cruelty-free products can make a huge impact. Making a loud choice is ultimately what causes larger companies to institute change.”
