4 Makeup Companies that Don’t Test on Animals

Testing on animals has really become an issue about which you can read a lot nowadays, and we can say that it’s pretty controversial, therefore we felt important to write an article about makeup companies that don’t test on animals. Testing on animals have been inevitable so far, there are several industries which have used it, such as pharmacology,  medicine, and cosmetic industry, etc. But due to the development of thechnology and science, testing on animals is less necessery.

What’s more, there are efforts to show everyone that every each of creature in the world deserves humanely treatment as well. There’s a sculpture of lab mouse knitting DNA, erected at the Institute of Cytology and Genetics Novosibirsk, Siberia in 2013, honoring all the mice that have lost their lives in scientific experiments.

As for me, I think it was high time to realize and respect the suffering and sacrifice animals have to undergo during these experiments. In the cosmetic industry, testing on animals is not necesarry or obligatory, but yet in the United States lots of companies do animal-testing. In Europe, the situtation changed in 2004, as testing on animals has been forbidden since then.

As we can see the list of the companies that do testing on animals is rather long. We can find large number of famous companies on this list, such as Avon (NYSE:AVP, Burberry, Chloe, and Revlon (NYSE:REV) just to name few. Some of these companies test onyl few of their products on animlas, but nevertheless they still do it.

It’s an important ethical question nowadays, since we really need to make our planet cleaner, nicer and a much better place to live for every living creature. Now without a further ado, let’s see what Insider Monkey have investigated for us about makeup companies that don’t test on animals.
