Keep Animal Testing From Becoming Mandatory

This is different from anything I’ve ever posted on here, but it’s an incredibly important issue.  As you may or may not know, Lipstick & a Latte is a cruelty free beauty blog, which means every single product I review is not tested on animals.


Testing beauty products on animals is an unnecessary and outdated practice.  There exist many effective alternatives to animal testing, such as human volunteers and even synthetic skin.

Gandhi once said that “the greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”

If the Safe Cosmetics and Personal Care Products Act (SCPCPA) is allowed to pass, it will become required for all beauty products to be tested on animals.  However, this doesn’t have to happen.  Tashina Combs, of vegan beauty blog Logical Harmony, started a petition to prevent the SCPCPA from becoming law.

It would fill my heart with joy if even one or two of you decide to support the cause after reading this post.  It literally takes five seconds.  Please help by signing the petition here.

  1. Signed. To be honest, I haven’t researched animal testing in about 9 years and am sad to see that some of products I have bought in that time have started testing on animals


    • Thanks for your interest in helping protect our furry friends, V. And it can be hard to keep track of companies’ policy changes. Off the top of my head, Revlon, Smashbox, Mac, Estee Lauder and Lancome have begun testing on animals in the past two or three years alone. So sad.


      • Yes, and of course those are the brands I had been faithfully buying under the assumption that if anything, more companies would switch AWAY from animal testing.
