Stop testing their products on animals.

The grim underside of the so-called beauty industry is exemplified by the draize test. Endless rows of white albino rabbits (although other species, including dogs, are used) are restrained and fully conscious as so-called "technicians" pour test substances into their eyes, or apply them to raw, shaved skin. These chemicals are left in the eyes or on the skin for a set amount of time and then rinsed or removed. The animals, however, remain imprisoned for up to two weeks as their reactions are recorded. Hemorrhaging? Adema? Blindness? Ulcers? It's all in the name of perfume, mascara, and other products of human vanity.

That, ladies and gentlemen, is animal testing—a practice that Estée Lauder, Avon, and Mary Kay Cosmetics have announced they will resume, reports Scripps News.
