There are other better ways for companies to carry out their tests rather than animals, and when combining markets that demands for animal testing by law is solely dependent on their decision. Lots of companies who have made intentional decisions to stay out of the manufacturing of cruelty-free products to uphold their cruelty-free status.
Companies who still stand on testing on animals are making cruel choices which I’m not going to be a part of. Choosing cruelty-free products is one of the most significant ways of opposing animal testing.
