Benefits of Going Cruelty-Free
Everyone would prefer to stay youthful, beautiful, and attractive for as long as they live, with flawless glowing skin; a world like this would be idealistic. However, it is not the practical world we live in, and companies and brands have come up with beauty and skincare products to push us closer to our goals of attaining healthy skin free of pimples, blackheads, or even from skin conditions like acne. These products have made it easier for us to maintain our skin and look beautiful. However, it has been chiefly made possible at the expense of animals, and sadly, as we walk around with radiant skin and beautifully done makeup, some animals somewhere have had to undergo a lot of torture to make it happen. But, it does not have to be like that if we all decide to go the cruelty-free way.
Humans are a part of the planet, and quite frankly, the earth can do without us, but the reverse is not true at all. We need the land to survive; we are a part of the ecosystem, and animals are too. You might wonder what difference one mouse makes, but the truth is every single animal life matters just the same as every human life matters, and no one has the right to take it away. For a long time now, animal testing has been a common thing in the beauty and skincare industry. Many animal lives have been lost; tortured, maimed, blinded, and eventually killed for the sake of products. However, there is a solution, cruelty-free products, and here are some of the benefits of going cruelty-free and choosing brands like JAYN for all your beauty and skincare solutions.
- Cruelty-free products are healthier
Most of the time, we put ourselves at risk by exposing our skin to very harmful chemicals and ingredients in the skincare products we buy. Instead of giving the good results that we were hoping for, we end up with inflammations, allergies, and breakouts. There are many harmful chemicals like sulfates, silicones, phthalates, parabens, and synthetic dyes contained in some products. Cruelty-free products provide a healthier, toxic-free option that reduces the likelihood of allergies and breakouts. We are after good and healthy skin, not treatment of allergies.
Additionally, makeup brushes made from animal fur harbor a lot of bacteria. Due to the structure of the animal hair, these brushes trap many oils and breed bacteria no matter how thoroughly you think you have cleaned them. However, makeup brushes made from synthetic hairs are easier to clean and remove bacteria, therefore a healthier option.
- Going cruelty-free helps to protect the animals
Every year, millions of dogs, cats, mice, guinea pigs, rabbits, and other animals are held in very tiny and confined spaces in inhumane conditions. As children, these animals are vulnerable before humans and are subject to a lot of torture and harmful procedures. It is close to impossible for one to make a product and succeed the first time; maybe on the hundredth trial, the product will be fit for human consumption. However, till then, hundreds of animals would have undergone burnt skin, exposure to harmful chemicals, and inhalation of poisonous substances, which is brutal to these animals. Choosing to use cruelty-free products is a move towards making a difference. If everyone decided to go cruelty-free, they would be sending a message, saying no to animal testing and putting all these brands that use animals out of business for good.
Additionally, animal testing does not guarantee conclusive results like vitro testing, which is more practical despite the affordability. Some animals do not develop the same diseases as we do, and whatever does not affect them might not necessarily be safe for us. So instead of animal testing, brands can opt for vitro testing.
- Using cruelty-free products guarantees your safety as far as ingredients are concerned.
There are already 7000 ingredients that have been proven to be safe for cosmetics and skincare lines. Our products at JAYN, like the Moroccan Clay Face Mask, contain organic and safe ingredients. These ingredients are what beauty and skincare brands are supposed to incorporate in their products; plus, it is an extensive range of components to choose from. However, those who practice animal testing are after profits and want to invent new products with different ingredients which have not been approved as safe; after all, it is business to them; profits first, safety later.
Going cruelty-free is a step to assure that whatever goes to your skin is healthy, natural, and will not, later on, cause unimaginable complications.
- Going cruelty-free leads to a more conscious experience with beauty practices and saves costs.
Most of the time, we end up stacking our drawers with a lot of products that we barely remember we have; serums, face masks, shampoo, moisturizers, lip balms, you name them. Because we do not always check the ingredients, we buy products from companies that promote animal cruelty. Looking at the ingredients on the products when purchasing them will reduce your purchase. You will only pick cruelty-free choices which are fewer than the other choices, so instead of an overloaded compartment of products, you have healthy and friendly products to use. Besides, these cruelty-free products are very affordable; you do not have to drain your pockets to buy them.
- Cruelty-free products are very eco-friendly.
Since they do not contain harmful ingredients, they minimize waste and are not hazardous to the environment.
