Cruelty Free Pledge
Southern Magnolia Minerals does not, and has never participated in the activity of animal testing on our ingredients and finished products, nor do we do business with any supply chain that participated in the act of animal testing. SMMCosmetics only buys natural cosmetic ingredients that have been evaluated on human volunteers. Our policy clearly states that we will not conduct business with any supplier that participates or champions such activities.
Companies that do test on Animals
This list is straight from the PETA website. Some of these companies, (such as Proctor and Gamble) have declared that 'most' of their products do not utilize animal tested ingredients, but they have also stated that they will continue to use animal testing when deemed necessary.
There is a good video on PETA that is not impossible to watch. I learned a little bit more about it, including that they use baby primates, and kittens, among other animals, and that they end up blinding many of the animals, such as rabbits, that they test on. I suggest watching it if you use any of these products, and it will give you the inspiration to take the trip to a different store to buy products that not only don't use animal testing, but that also use naturally derived ingredients that are safe for you, your family, and our natural environment.
