April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month
We want to take a little break from talking about health and skincare to focus on a special matter. April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month. Every year the ASPCA asks supporters to celebrate this special month and cause by helping raise awareness about important issues facing animals today.
Molecule 32 has always been and always will be ethically conscious and we will never test on animals. All of our products are vegan and contain no part from animals. We want to take this opportunity and use our voice to encourage consumers to be conscious of the beauty / personal care brands that they support and paying extra attention to ingredients and practices that may cause harm to animals.
When you make a beauty or skincare purchase, it’s always good to check the labels but one of the ways you can help prevent cruelty to animals is to check the labels on the products you buy to make sure they don’t conduct animal testing (or they have a special cruelty free logo). Not long ago, conducting animal testing was standard for many personal care and cosmetic companies. But, with all the work that PETA and ASPCA has done, legislation has become more strict about these practices. However, animal testing still happens on other products that we use in our households. To check if a product is cruelty free, please use this great search tool provided by PETA.
In addition, when you travel abroad make sure you know what you’re buying. Did you know that all beauty, skincare and cosmetic products that are sold in China are required to provide documentation of animal testing in order to get through customs? Even though the cosmetic companies that sell their products in China may not conduct animal testing on their own, they often outsource a third party vendor for these testing in order to sell their products aboard. Be aware when you go shopping in foreign countries so you aren’t supporting these practices. For a list of countries and their animal testing laws, check out these sites below:
