Did you know the FDA does NOT require animal testing for cosmetics? Buying cosmetics that are tested on animals supports a cruel and unnecessary industry that subjects millions of animals to pain, torture and death. Most big cosmetic companies choose to use animal testing in fear of litigation and also under pressure from huge research companies.
What are other reasons Vapour never uses animal testing?
• Animal testing is inherently inaccurate—animal systems and human systems are not comparable. Even within the animal family species are so individualized that mice often respond differently from rats in experiments.
• The testing industry is largely unregulated as over 90% of the animals used in testing are excluded from the Animal Welfare Act (AWA), the only federal law which oversees animal testing.
• Animal testing inflicts pain and suffering to intelligent creatures as a rule, not an exception. Force-fed, locked down, eyes forced open, no anesthesia: we pay the industry to do this when we buy animal-tested cosmetics.
Yuck. We buy these products to make us feel good, even beautiful. Why would we buy them knowing the ugly path the product has taken to end up in our purse? Vapour does not test on animals. Nor are any of the raw ingredients in Vapour tested on animals. Our products are tested on real human beings. Become cruelty free by buying cruelty free.
