I can’t tell you how happy I was to see that my post on Instagram the other day made you guys as furious as it does me. Testing products on animals is NOT okay, and breeding them for these tests is even more cruel.

If you want to learn more about how animals are routinely bred, blinded, poisoned and then euthanized to test OUR skincare, hair, and beauty products, click here. If this subject makes you fiery too, then read on to learn about brands I use and love that don’t test on animals.

BRANDS I USE AND LOVE THAT DON’T TEST ON ANIMALS

WHY BEAGLES?

I wasn’t going to include this part, but on my Instastories I shared a really sad photo of a beagle with his eye cut out and stitched up, and it bothered many of you. That’s what inspired this post. Did you know that beagles are chosen to be test animals because they are genuine, kind, and a very trusting breed of dog? Yup. That’s right. They trust humans… so we choose their breed so we can hurt them. It is disgusting.
