So why does animal testing exist?
Animals testing for drugs and cosmetics exists because governments needed to establish whether or not a product or ingredient is safe for public health before allowing it on the market.
But there are over 7,000 safe ingredients that cosmetic companies can choose from to formulate their products, without having to test or harm any animals in the process. In this technologically-inclined day and age and the constant evolution of science, there are many alternative methods that make testing on animals unethical and also unnecessary.
