When I was 14 or 15 I was given a leaflet in the school playground describing and depicting vivisection and the horrific tests which are done on animals in laboratories, in order to pass beauty and cleaning products as ‘safe’ for humans. We now know that this is not even necessary. There are plenty of other proven scientific methods to ensure safety.
Rabbits can’t cry tears, so when high a concentration of a chemical liquid is dripped into their eyes, they can not flush it away with tears like people can. This means the experience is painful for them; they cannot understand or escape from the pain, because they are shut into restricting boxes with only their heads sticking out. You can Google images of vivisection / animal testing if you want evidence of this. But let’s keep this page pleasant rather than heartbreaking to look at.
30 years on and I still passionately believe that animal testing for cosmetics and cleaning products is absolutely unnecessary and just done by greedy industries to compete with other brands and come up with breakthrough skin treatments. In China it is the law to have all products tested on animals, and many famous brands go along with this because there is a huge market for them to make loads of money over there. Even though the EU banned animal testing for cosmetics, many brands will get around this by funding the testing in countries where it is still very much legal. This is a huge industry. Animals cannot speak for themselves and are unwillingly caught up in it. Charities such as the BUAV and Cruelty Free International have been campaigning for years and have achieved so much with their lobbying. They do a wonderful job. There is still more to do. You can make a difference by choosing only cruelty free products.
There are many approved brands available – the easiest way to spot what is cruelty-free is to look for the sign of the Leaping Bunny. This means the product has Cruelty Free International accreditation. You can trust these brands. I have carefully selected ethical brands that you can purchase online, and I am a proud ambassador of them.
Your Amazing Skin
Your skin is a wonderful organ of your body, and in fact the largest organ. Its 3 main functions are protection, regulation and sensation. It rejuvenates and regenerates. You need to take care of it inside and out. Eating a good diet and drinking plenty of water is really important. And so is making sure whatever you apply to it is gentle, safe and chemical free. Anything you put onto your skin will find its way into your bloodstream. Treat your skin to natural and gentle skincare and you will soon have a healthy glow.
I recommend a book called Skin Cleanse by Adina Grigore. And JUICING!
Parabens have recently been in the spotlight as being linked to breast cancer – they find their way from chemical deodorants into the lymph glands and this is harmful. Parabens have been found in the breast tissue of cancer patients. There are plenty of safe deodorants available now which are paraben free, so find one that is effective for you and throw away your toxic ones as soon as you can. If you are still using up a toxic deodorant, at least make sure you wash it off at bedtime every single night.
All the deodorants at Sal’s Green Beauty Shop are paraben free.
