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Testing beauty products on animals is an unnecessary and outdated practice.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.
