we are here for the animals
Approximately 200,000 animals suffer and die for cosmetics worldwide each year, including guinea pigs, hamsters, rats and mice.
The resources shared here are presented in a way that you can read more about the issues, the animals, the tests and the alternatives. We tell it how it is when it comes to experiments conducted on these innocent, sentient animals, but we do give warning about any content that may be particularly graphic.
