We've all heard of people asking their local drugstore cashier "Has this product been tested on animals?" Most cosmetic companies now make it a point to state clearly on their packaging that "This product has not been tested on animals." But have you ever seen on a bottle of hand cream "This product contain the parts of aborted babies."? Cuz you should.

The leading 12 shampoos and 5 hand creams in your local drugstore contain human collagen, a "gelatinous substance found in connective tissue, bone, and cartillage" which also happens to have a wonderful moisturizing effect. And guess where they get it from? Aborted babies.

Mary Kay and Hask Cosmetics have both sent out statements assuring their customers that their collagen comes only from animals. Other cosmetics companies are not so humane.

Next time you're out buying you're makeup check the bottles. Unless the label specifically says that the product contains animal or bovine collagen it most likely comes from dead children. Don't support these companies!
