There are lots of companies that claim to produce only cruelty free cosmetics. However, this has been proven to be actually untrue because a lot of these companies still make use of different materials that come from various animals. Sometimes, these cosmetics are even tested on animals before they get to be tested on real humans. So, it needs to be a focus for many customers to look into the different materials used in the cosmetics they buy so that cosmetic manufacturers are stopped from violating the rules required of them.
Like many other companies who proclaim to use safe chemicals in the different manufacturing activities that they do, cosmetic manufacturers are also guilty of the same lying scheme. They also proclaim to make cruelty free cosmetics when in fact; most of them still use different materials that don’t really attest to that proclamation. There have already been many lawsuits made against many companies that have proclaimed their products to be tested only on humans.
These companies are even some of the most popular brands that we know of today. Their claim is that they only test their products on humans and that their products have all met the standards given out by PETA and the different agencies authorized to maintain the laws governing cosmetics.
It is surprising to find out that these very companies that proclaim to make only cruelty free cosmetics have been found guilty of using different materials that come from animals. Some of these companies use hair from animals to make the different brushes utilized in cosmetics. Some of them even test their products on animals such as rats, guinea pigs, and all the different animals that are usually confined in the laboratory for the said purposes.
China has been proclaimed to be one of the main countries that employ the use of animals to make cosmetics. Notwithstanding the fact that the said country has already proven to violate a lot of various laws and regulations concerning not only cosmetics but also food and drugs, it isn’t really surprising that most of their products are, indeed, substandard and full of materials prohibited by international standards.
However, it has been proven that it isn’t only China that has been continually violating the said standards especially for cosmetic manufacturing. A lot of the more popular brands that we use today have also been violating the same standards and various law suits have already been made against them. This comes as a surprise since these very same companies have been announcing that cruelty free cosmetics have always been their sole aim.
This is a big disappointment since it only proves that a lot of companies that have been promoting animal rights and such have, all along, been lying to the public. So, it needs to be a continued effort to make these companies stop using animals for the various testing procedures that they do. They also need to stop using animal hair for the cosmetic brushes that they make.
These cruelty free cosmetics need to be what they proclaim themselves to be. Cosmetics are used by humans and humans should also be the only valid testing population utilized to foresee the effectiveness of these products. No to animal cruelty and no to animal-based products!
