Curious about products that test on animals...

Would you still use products even if they test on animals? I feel a little behind, but I just realized Neutrogena/Johnson&Johnson are the predominant animal testers. This personally appalls me, and I think I'm gonna be setting those products at least on a back shelf somewhere.

I'm just curious too see any information anyone else has and anyone else's opinions.

    Animal testing is pretty much immoral and wrong in my opinion. After all, we're all animals. Humans like to think that they're "separate" from the animal kingdom just because we have the power to invent. But chimpanzees can invent as well. Some apes have over 14 different types of stone tools that they've made and use. We may be at the top of the food chain, be we're still just another link.

    There are alternatives to animal testing in cosmetics, just more expensive ones.

    Companies can use human cell cultures instead, without harming anyone. Companies can use human skin cultures without harming anyone.

    And keep in mind that animal testing in cosmetics is not smearing lipstick on animals to see how pleasing the shade is to them. Its finding out how much of a particular substance is sufficient to kill the animals.

    well what would you suggest it has to be tested for side effects somewhere. do you want to go straight to human testing with the new botox and kill hundreds everytime a new drug comes out. personally id rather lose thousands of mice than 100s of humans anyday

    it depends what type of animal testing they do. they might do it for animal safety (poisons, etc.), or they may be just testing out their unpredictable product. You would have to research it to find out. They may also be funding animal testing unrelated to their products which could save animal and human lives.
