Do You Buy Cruelty Free?

What does it mean to buy cruelty free? 
Buying cruelty free is the buying of products that have not been tested by non-human animals.

When buying soaps, shampoos and conditioners, check the label to make sure the product has not been tested on animals.

What do you mean by 'testing on animals'?
Many manufacturers use animals, especially rabbits and mice, to test the irritability of the product. They rub the product into the animal's eyes to see what reaction they get, or they feed large amounts of the soap to the animal before returning them to their cold cages.

So, next time you go shopping, buy products that have not been tested on animals.
Check the label if you are not sure.
