USA) still use animals in these tests. In an attempt to predict safety and effectiveness of cosmetics and toiletries, regulators in countries like America require companies to prove that their products are safe and harmless towards human beings. The cosmetics companies are required to conduct these experiments - they do not simply test on animals because they want to. Many thousands of animals (such as rabbits, mice, rats and guinea pigs) are used every year in the tests, but how reliable and applicable
be forbidden is because animal tests are cruel. The second reason is that animal tests aren’t reliable, and the last reason that is animal tests is often unnecessary. Animal experimentation should be prohibited because animal testing is cruel. Many animal tests lead to pain and part of the tests are performed without any pain killers. The Draize Eye test supports this because it is a test that involves putting a substance in the eye of a ceased rabbit. The test leads to an infection in the eyes
Amongst the various necessary safety tests that cosmetic companies’ conduct on animals, there are three prominent tests usually conducted on most cosmetic products. The Draize test for eye irritancy is used for eye products such as mascara and eye shadow. Its aim is to ascertain a products’ degree of irritancy, before it is used on humans. The most commonly used animal in these experiments is the albino rabbit, as rabbits produce a significant smaller amount of tears than humans, and their pale fur
PURPOSE SENTENCE: The purpose of this speech is to persuade my audience that animals should not be used by companies to test cosmetic products. I. Picture this: rows of rabbits wait in cages, their heads tightly clamped in stocks to prevent movement. The lower lids of the rabbits' eyes are pulled back. Technicians drip nail polish remover, mascara, shampoo, and astringent into their eyes, where the chemicals stay for three to twenty one days. The chemicals burn and often blind the animals
end up harming us as well as the animals themselves. I strongly believe that animal testing should be banned in the United States because it is harmful to animals and causes many complications in regard to their health. Animals have been used as test subjects for many years now and some people are for it and others are against it, Edmund O'meara has said to have been the first man to be against animal testing. On January 1, 1655 he said "the miserable torture of vivisection places the body in
are done on them to test the results of cosmetic products. Things like hairspray and sunscreen are tested on animals. Animals are being tortured for hairspray. It’s really very profound that humans have the nerve and indecency to exploit helpless creatures in such way. The animals wait in their cages, cold scared and alone. They never know when the next test will be, or when their wounds will be healed. They receive no medical attention, and if they get too sick to have tests done on them, they’re
More than a cosmetic change Commercial and political pressures are pushing for a halt to the use of animals in toxicology tests in Europe. This change will also mean a move towards better science, says Alison Abbott. E very time you reach for an eyedrop or reapply a lip salve, you do so confident that the chemicals they contain are safe to use. But the toxicology tests on which regulators rely to gather this information are stuck in a time warp, and are largely based on wasteful and often poorly
and hormones which are vital for research and medical treatments. Laboratory animals are used for safety testing of chemicals and drugs. Millions of chemicals and medicines are used in daily life as household products, in farming and industry. These tests are very important to avoid pollution and health problems and to maintain the equilibrium of the environment. Laboratory animals are used for study of genetic disorders. A person’s genetic code can cause many inherited disease.
head and then they skin away their face and start to work down to their legs, back and tail. It is said that over 70 million animals are tortured and killed in US laboratories each year. Rabbits are blinded in a process named the 'Draize' test. The Draize test protects companies from potential lawsuits, and does not necessarily protect or guarantee human safety. Purchasing cosmetics from companies who specify no animal testing is one small step that can be taken to prevent animal cruelty.
just wrong. The main people involved in animal testing include the animals, the companies that test on them and the animal rights companies that are trying to stop them. Colgate, Johnson & Johnson, Ziploc, Garnier, Clean & Clear, Maybelline, Listerine and Pantene. Ever heard of these brands? I'm sure you have used them at some point in your life. These are among the long list of companies that test on animals for the production of items that we use every day. The explanation ' I believe that
