Animal Testing

Wikaniko doesn’t sell any products that have been tested on Animals, and this reminds us why:

A young woman was restrained, force-fed and injected with cosmetics in a high street shop window as part of a hard-hitting protest against animal testing. Jacqueline Traide was tortured in front of hundreds of horrified shoppers in a bid to raise awareness and end the practise.

The 24-year-old endured 10 hours of experiments, which included having her hair shaved and irritants squirted in her eyes, as part of a worldwide campaign by Lush Cosmetics and The Humane Society. The disturbing stunt took place in Lush’s Regent Street store, one of the UK’s busiest shopping streets.

Follow the campaign here, and read more about the demonstration here.

Part of the power of these companies, comes from our wallets, it is important to carefully consider where we put our pennies!

It’s surprising how many companies are still testing their products on animals, see the list here.
