There is no denying it: cosmetic animal testing is extremely cruel. Although such testing is banned in nearly 40 countries, it remains legal in Canada, where the vast majority of cosmetic products sold on store shelves are not cruelty-free.
As a result, every year, many rodents and rabbits are subjected to repeated painful tests without anesthesia, which cause them numerous injuries and traumas. Moreover, those that survive this torture are usually killed at the end of the tests.
Fortunately, there are many available alternatives when it comes to taking care of our bodies, our homes and our animals without supporting animal experimentation. To help you make informed purchases, we have put together three lists of products that are both vegan (containing no animal products or by-products) and cruelty-free.
