Why is it still legal to test cosmetics and other products on animals? It seems so cruel and unnecessary.

    In a lot of places, it is already illegal to test cosmetics on animals. Most consumers see the practice as unnecessary, because it’s not in the name of medicine or saving lives, only looking pretty. The problem with banning animal testing, however, is that cosmetic companies are still required to prove that their products will not have adverse health effects on consumers. Consequently, cosmetic companies are usually forced to stick to ingredients that have previously been tested on animals or use human volunteers to test the products. Additionally, even if cosmetics tests were banned in one area, animal testing is a component of companies’ research departments that could easily be exported to places where it is still legal.
