So, you have adopted a vegan diet because you just do not approve of taking a life to bring food to your table. Breeding animals in a huge number to kill them for food sounds like gross injustice to animals who are not strong enough to defend themselves. Any animal byproducts too have harmful impact on their bio-system. As a compassionate human being you cannot stand for such cruelty being inflicted on animals. Having said all that, have you considered if animals are affected in the production of your favorite makeup?
Impact of Animal Testing
PETA has been fighting for years to stop animal abuse in the name of testing for cosmetic products. Many makeup companies test on animals to check factors for sensitivity, skin irritation and eye irritation in defenseless animals like guinea pigs, rabbits and rats. Manufacturers test these chemicals on a rabbit's eyes to check how much is enough to burn their cornea just to ensure that our precious eyes are safe. There is something really twisted about humanity if we are OKAY with that.
Alternatives have been invented now
Fortunately, science has come up with cornea-like 3D tissue structures and human skin culture to carry these tests on. Many companies have adopted these vegan friendly makeup manufacturing techniques. Next time when you are out to buy your makeup, make sure you pick up a brand that promotes ethical manufacturing without using animal tests or byproducts. True beauty should never support cruelty.
