Please, take a few minutes to watch what is going on in the animal laboratories of the UK’s leading Universities. Behind all of the abstractions about the benefits, supremacy and irreproachability of science, the ‘necessary evils’ of experimentation, are individual, self-aware, thinking and feeling animals who are confined, torture and killed so miserably. There are complex issues at play about the division of labor with these graduate students, their desensitization to suffering and the total objectification of animals but these issues and these images uncover the true reality of animal experimentation as a globalized, institutionalized practice. In the UK as in the US, little has changed in the past 100 years from the subterranean laboratories of 19th century vivisectors, bringing animals home off the street to cut into on their kitchen tables. This is the type of ivory tower megalomania that needs to be confronted. This is suffering that is public funded in tax monies and publicly condoned in our complacency.
Today at work a lady was talking to me about our own brand products. She said she thought they weren’t advertised enough to make people aware that they are all animal cruelty free.
I agree with her so I thought I would mention it on here incase anyone was interested. ALL Superdrug own brand products are animal cruelty free, they are BUAV approved. NONE of them have been tested on animals. You can see this by the leaping bunny logo on all the boxes/bottles.
Also most (if not all) of Superdrug own brand products are suitable for vegetarians and vegans! What more could you want! The lady that spoke to me said she found it hard to find hair dye and shampoo/conditioner that was BUAV approved and vegan she was excited when she found out we sold it, and now that’s all she ever uses.
Plus they are usually a lot cheaper than branded products!
This is probably really boring if you don’t care but if you do care, now you know!!
