Baby Sun Bear Ask what animal parts are used in your beauty products. Just because it was not tested on animals, does not mean it does not contain animals. Ask where your product's keratin is sourced from and make sure your favorite manufacturer's check for and don't allow wildlife to enter their supply chains. Keratin is mostly sourced from sheep's wool, but some contain the endangered species Pangolin. Better yet, switch to products that contain plant based oils, like Argan Oil.
Two moon bears, nicknamed Rudolph and Holly, were saved from a cruel fate in China in early December 2012 when the Sichuan Forestry Department rescued them from villagers. The bears had been caught by villagers two years previously, but as they grew, it proved less convenient to care for them. Animals Asia, a charity working towards wild animal welfare and conservation, believe that the villagers were approached by traders wanting to sell the bears for their bile.
