Several weeks ago I took the Leaping Bunny Pledge. "As a compassionate consumer, I pledge to only purchase cosmetic, personal care, and/or household products from companies that do not test finished products, ingredients, or formulations on animals. I am taking the leap to cruelty -free products." Yesterday. I decided to make the pledge a reality. I went into The Body Shop at Towne Center Westfield Mall. The Body Shop is renowned for being one of the very first companies not to do animal testing to develop cosmetics. I knew everything in the shop was made of natural products with no animal testing. I found the manager and told her I was replacing all of my cosmetics with natural products and needed her help. I got deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body lotion, face wash, a daily face moisturizer, a night cream, blush, eyeliner, and mascara. Although there are many other companies that offer cruelty-free products, I was happy to give my business to them. All of their products are guaranteed so if I am unhappy with any of them, I can take them back.
When I left, I felt great. I have no idea how these products will work on the outside of my body, but I know for sure they made me feel beautiful on the inside.
Go ahead and take the leap!
