Why Cruelty-Free Products Are Better

Why Choosing Cruelty Free Products Is The Better Option

Why Choosing Cruelty Free Products Is The Better Option

Many consumers are in a rush these days. Most Americans today shop online at e-commerce giants like Amazon and sometimes we don’t do thorough research on a product when we see a good deal online. The same thing happens when we walk into a store to buy a product and sometimes forget to think about all that goes into making the product. Regarding the ingredients list takes a long time and a bit of effort on the part of the consumer. Luckily, the products we use at Lowen’s are cruelty-free. What do cruelty-free products mean to us and why is it a better option? Read more to find out!

A shift in consumption patterns has led to the creation of a more conscious consumer. This shift is responsible for the growing popularity of cruelty-free products. Whether it’s make-up or home cleaning products, more brands today are flaunting the cruelty-free symbol, and for a good reason. Here are some good reasons to choose cruelty-free products:

Animals are not commodities

Animals are living beings.  Experiments conducted on them are extremely cruel and inhumane. Also, lab animals are not protected under the same laws that protect our pets. Mice, rabbits, cats, and dogs are maimed, blinded, suffocated, and killed for cruel experiments, and it needs to stop. They are living beings and deserve a chance at freedom. By choosing cruelty-free products, you will be making sure that you aren’t contributing to an innocent being’s suffering.

Alternatives to animal testing exist

Ingredients tested on animals may not always show the same results on humans. Scientists are actively seeking better alternatives to animal testing and countries that have followed the European Union to become cruelty-free for cosmetic skin care products include Israel, Turkey, India, Taiwan and South Korea.   In vitro testing, the use of computer models, and the use of cultured cell tissues are some alternatives that can produce more accurate results. For more examples about alternatives to animal testing please visit the Peta website.

Several products have already been proven to be safe

So far, a whopping 7000+ skincare ingredients are proven to be safe for humans. Brands and companies can choose any of them to make their products eco-friendly and sustainable. The ones that don’t are looking to use new ingredients and increase their profits. Companies can easily select from among the ingredients already proven to be safe and use them in their products.

You vote with your dollar

Consumers have tremendous power over what brands do. When more consumers start demanding products that aren’t tested on animals, it will send a message loud and clear to companies, “We don’t support pro-cruelty and animal testing”.  You have a vote and voice for a change regarding not supporting unethical practices of brands. Furthermore, since brands want to cater to the needs of customers and increase their profits, they’re more likely to start paying attention and make the necessary changes required to serve consumers better.
