Fooling you: “Product not tested on animals” vs “The ingredients that make up a product”

Watch out for false misleading claims.

If a product states anything along the lines of “New improved recipe”. Then it’s been tested on animals.

By law, all new synthesised chemicals (ingredients of a product) have to be tested on animals to be passed for usage in products.

What are your alternatives?

  • Look to your kitchen & garden for alternatives. Less costs, less foot print, less packaging, less synthetics fo your body
    Many household items can serve as alternative cheaper replacements for body products.
  • Skin:
    Olive oil on cotton removes eye make up really quickly.
    Witch hazel concotions make great skin toners (Wellness warehouse sell an affordabl with hazel and rose product)
  • Hair:
    Bicarbonate of soda as hair shampoo.
    Vinegar (white or apple cider etc) as conditioner: You can soak Rosemary (antiseptic, softener) and/or Lavendar in the vinegar and strain after a 1 or more weeks to make a lovely smelling concoction. Dilute with water as required and apply to hair, rinse or leave in.
