Should makeup testing be banned on animals or not?

I think it should be banned on animals as just like us, they are on this earth to live their lives peacefully without any external disturbance from anyone. But at the same time, makeup products should be tested on something so that something bad doesnt happen to the humans when we try it for the first time without it being tried and tested. What do you think?

But what if the product turns out to be harmful for the humans in reality, and we havent tried and tested them on anything and just directly used it on ourselves..??? what about that??

This is certainly a dillemma. What if makeup companies used products that were not potentially toxic to people? Maybe that is the alternative .... however, there are makeup companies (such as Revlon) that claim to not test on animals at all. So Im not sure what alternative they use.

Well you can never really know the effects and side effects of any new things that you make without testing them first, can you? and afterall makeup products and things similar are all just theories of what will happen if these chemicals are mixed with these ones, put together in reality by a bunch of workers. And we want to try them out on humans first? As you said, this is certainly a very big dilemma.

While it is unfair to use animals for experiments, it is worse to use human beings. I remember the first animal on space (Laika). I always wondered if it was really the first one or only the succesful animal on space. Should we have started with human beings?

I feel as though just because the animals cannot speak and express themselves and their wishes with us, like us humans can freely do, we neglect their silence and dont think about them at all and just use them for our benefit, like in order to make out future better....and thats not exactly fair. But like they always say, only the fittest survives.

Yes. This should stop. I saw a post and pictures of animals who are victims of these make up that are not successful. It's heartbreaking to see them suffer like that. I hope they can find a way to test it without applying to animals.

There is no reason to test on animals. Plenty of makeup isn't tested on animals and it's fine. peta say there are over 1700 companies whose makeup isnt tested on animals.
