In the last year some of the largest cosmetic and nail companies have been found to be testing a small number of their products on animals. Is this still something you consider important when researching products?
I am running cruelty-free beauty room and therefore that information is extremely important to me. Animal testing it's not only cruel, it doesn't make any sense as animal skin is different then human. Now when we have in vitro tests (laboratories are growing cells of human skin and tests take place on it first and then on volunteers) animal testing is just old fashion not very reliable method, should not take place in cosmetic industry
Extremely important!!! I only trust Kalliste Organics Inc.. Its a Organic/Cruelity-free company in Dobbs Ferry, New York. The owner is super friendly and makes everything herself. I would refer Kalliste to anyone wanting to stear away from animal tested products. Also, Kalliste has helped with my wrinkles, acne, and strech marks. And, I sure haven't complained.

Hi, it is still so important to know that the products and cosmetics I buy and use aren't tested on animals. I think animal testing is terribly cruel and wouldn't ever consider buying or using something that has hurt any living thing ~ just for the sake of vanity. I am sure and hope that most people & therapists feel the same way as I do :)
