    And they also tests on animals 😦

    A big bright smile and sparkly eyes (like Mio’s) are the most beautiful thing for women 🙂

    Mio always has a lovely smile, and lovely eyes.

    Women in England apply cosmetics with a builder’s trowel!

    In Africa women are sold cosmetics to lighten their skin!

    Rabbits have lovely eyes. Cosmetics are dripped into their eyes to test if safe.

    Not only morally wrong, but also bad science.

    The test is not to prove the cosmetics safe as it does not. It is to absolve the companies of any litigation, as they can claim they tested their products.

    Trials are carried out on new drugs. Bad results are removed from the trials.
