Against Animal Testing!

  • Pin it

I’ll start by saying I don’t want to participate in an endless debate about the yay/nay –s of animal testing.

I think everyone can and should judge by him/herself if given sufficient information. Animal testing is not economy-addicted and thus it doesn’t necessarily disappear when there’s no relevant economic growth.

The story continues after the jump! don’t miss the rest of the pictures!

Animal testing in the fashion industry is and will continue to be a controversy from strictly the industry’s point of view and in every morally objective perspective. This new advertising (more of an awareness than advertising) campaign signed by Jung V Matt advertising agency sets some clear facts. As clear as a perfume bottle!

The campaign is called Flacons (that’s French for bottles) and was made for NOAH Menschen für Tiere e.V. (you can read more about their initiatives here. There’s also another one of their ads below)

Do you thing the ad prints will make an impact? (to obtain real results in the matter, should they target the end consumer or the scientific community?) I for one feel like a child in the bio lab! (you can read more about animal testing here and here; more about the agency behind this project here) (via 1, 2)

Well I will say that their ads are striking and stirring. The are sure to garner attention be it positive or negative. I always read the labels of things I purchase to see if they mention fair trade or no animal testing. Some do and some don’t.

These flacons shocked me but I’d wear my Lancome mascara and have used my medication…….

I can understand testing for medical products (I’d like to know if the medication I am taking will cause permanent damage to my body), but for other industries, I do not understand why.

There are some standards that should be reworked when it comes to animal testing.

For the medical industry: make it as humane as possible. Make sure that you’re making the animal feel as comfortable as possible if you are doing any testing. I know that people will argue that the results from testing drugs on animals does not produce clear results and that the results differ from the animal to humans, but if we didn’t start there, we wouldn’t have anywhere else to start. Most drugs undergo a trial basis anyways where they use human volunteers to test the drugs.

For the cosmetics industry: obviously, if you need to test an ingredient on an animal, you shouldn’t be using that ingredient. Stick with natural ingredients (flowers, essential oils, salts, minerals, rocks, fruits, vegetables, grains, and if you need to use synthetics, use ones that have been proven safe for YEARS), and fair trade ingredients so people who are in struggling countries or remote islands can also make a living as well. It’s common sense. Most cosmetics on the market nowadays are really chemicals that dry out or irritate the skin anyways. :P

For other industries: there have been pointless tests on animals. Clorox is inclined to do testing on animals to see the results of ingesting bleach. The results are all the same. We get it, people; don’t drink bleach.

I think the photos are great.. very eye-catching and thought provoking.. I hope people will wake up – think – and make the connection which means reading labels when you shop. If you care about animals, read labels to make sure you are not buying items (or buy from companies like Procter & Gamble, Colgate-Palmolive — sadly there’s a lot more) that hurt them! <3

Although i believe cosmetic testing is wrong. Some tests in the search for cures of diseases are necessary. You can’t simply be for or against.

For those of you who are turned off because of these images it’s probably cause the idea that almost every major cosmetic company is testing on animals is too sickening to handle. Glade, Pledge, Tide, and Swiffer test on animals just to name a few. I have a beagle that was a rescue dog, I’m glad I found him before some lab did, because for those of you who don’t know beagles are the most commonly used dog for animal testing. Every bottle of Windex you buy has an animals life attached to it.
