The Beauty Brains have discussed animal testing and cosmetics on a few occasions. Here they explained how all ingredients on cosmetics were at one time animal tested and how companies can claim not to test on animals when they indirectly do. A number of people have expressed skepticism about those claims. Well, according to this story, here is an anti-animal testing group from the UK that gets it right. Director Dr. Dan Lyons from the group, Uncaged, correctly points out that
Consumers are being misled by the beauty companies, who claim they don’t test their products – but they still test the ingredients, or use a third party to do the testing for them
Why some companies think it is ok to mislead people and claim they are better than other companies because they “don’t test on animals” is a mystery to this brain in training.
