Since 1968 there has been a 40% decrease in the number of animals used in biomedical research and testing in the United States. —Animal Testing Facts
There is ongoing debate concerning animal testing in the personal care industry. Some feel that it is necessary for safety and toxicology reasons, while others assert that it is archaic and abundant in unreliable scientific studies. Control Corrective Skincare Systems has never tested on animals. Our policy is firm regarding this stance. We’re members of The Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics’ (CCIC) Leaping Bunny Program, which was created by eight national animal protection groups to promote a single comprehensive cruelty-free standard. The internationally recognized Leaping Bunny Logo assists personal care companies in providing solid assurance to their customers that no animal testing has been used in any phase of product development, laboratories, or suppliers. There are many reasons why a company chooses to be cruelty-free. Here are ours:
—Alternative testing is more statistically valid. Animal skin is NOT a perfect substitute for human skin.
—We feel that no animal should suffer for anyone’s beauty.
—It’s bad science. The Food and Drug Administration reports that 92 out of every 100 drugs that pass animal tests, fail in humans.
—The world doesn’t need another eyeliner, hand soap, food ingredient, or pesticide so badly that it requires the suffering of animals.
If you’re an esthetician who wants to use an effective, cruelty-free skin care line, you can rely on Control Corrective Skincare Systems to not only bring you result-driven products but also peace of mind knowing that no animals were harmed for the sake of beauty.
