"Being cruelty free and achieving the Leaping Bunny certification for CoverGirl is the right thing to do, at the right time, in the right way."
But all hope for a cruelty-free future in cosmetics is not lost.

Just like lipsticks and bronzers, makeup wipes can be ethical and cruelty-free, too

They created Love Goodly because as moms and head of their households, they wanted to use products that were safe for themselves
History has shown that public opinion and consumer power have long been driving forces in influencing corporate behavior and legislative initiatives. It just takes time. The cruelty free cosmetics movement is no exception.
The technologies industry has changed the way we approach office design. The traditional office model -- where executives inhabit the big corner offices and smaller spaces are carved out in proportion to employees' status -- is becoming a thing of the past.
It was only two years ago that I became aware of the alternative to conventional skincare: natural skincare without harsh chemicals, preservatives, or endocrine disruptors. Since then, I've gradually transitioned to "green" my skincare and makeup products.
With more than 8,000 miles between them and marked differences in climate and culture, Argentina and Russia seem to be worlds apart, but recently something spectacularly similar happened in these two countries -- the introduction of bills to end animal testing for cosmetics.
This week, Cruelty Free International applauded the introduction of the Humane Cosmetics Act along with beauty industry leaders Paul Mitchell® and The Body Shop®. The bill was introduced with strong bipartisan leadership from U.S. Representatives Martha McSally (R -AZ), Don Beyer (D-VA), Joe Heck (R -NV) and Tony Cardenas (D-CA).
If you are anything like me, you find yourself awkwardly googling brand names in the middle of Ulta (Walgreens, Target, Nordstrom, etc, etc), trying to make sure they don't test on animals.
It's no secret that the U.S. has a less than stellar track record of passing animal protection legislation at the Federal level especially when compared to other countries. It's also no secret that bipartisan support is needed for any legislation to have hope of passage in the U.S. Congress.
Now, if a company chooses to not test its products on animals purely because it makes good business sense, I am actually fine with that. As long as animals aren't being made to suffer and killed for a new lipstick or shampoo, I'm happy.
Shopping cruelty free is also often a family affair, with conscientious shoppers actively looking for products that are not tested on animals for themselves as well as for their kids and companion animals.
I am campaigning with Cruelty Free International to end the use of animals in cosmetics and household product safety testing, and I find myself making the argument that caring about animals is good science and good business.
