I am sure you are all aware that in 2013 a new law was passed in Europe prohibiting animal testing to be used on new cosmetics and beauty products – this is fantastic news for us naturalists out there! But, this is just within the EU, there are other countries in the world where companies still get away with animal testing as it is the norm there. I have gone ahead and created the following infographic on the companies that are 100% against cruelty to animals, so these are some of the good guys to buy products from:
Other companies that I found were heading up offices in international markets where animals were still being mistreated and tested upon. Unfortunately, there is nothing the EU could possibly do here to stop them importing and selling the products onto EU markets. So companies have generally been working around the new ban and opening up factories elsewhere, so beware of who you buy off!
If any of you guys would like to see more on this ban please check that out here.
I also have yet another surprise for you all, I recently produced a piece on labels and stamps, quite a lot of people are getting confused as to what is natural and cruelty-free, so I went ahead and created yet another infographic to outline which stamps are good and which are bad. So, without further ado:
