The Ugly Side of Beauty

The European Union banned all testing on animals for cosmetics. People thought this was the beginning of the end to all animal testing. Sadly, with the opening of new markets, mostly those in China, it seems to be the end of this beginning. Several companies have gone back to torturing animals for beauty´s sake – and to make more money.

“There’s nothing beautiful about dripping chemicals into gentle rabbits’ eyes or rubbing substances onto their abraded skin—yet cosmetics companies such as Estée Lauder and Revlon are paying to have it done anyway.

After more than 20 years of operating cruelty-free, these companies are paying for archaic product tests that poison and kill rabbits, mice, guinea pigs, and other animals, in order to sell their products in China. It’s a disappointing backslide into cruel testing policies—and one that Estée Lauder and Revlon made in secret, without informing their customers about the change.”

  1. May I simply say what a comfort to uncover an individual who genuinely understands what they’re talking about on the
    web. You actually realize how to bring a problem to light
    and make it important. A lot more people really need to look at this and
    understand this side of the story. It’s surprising you are not
    more popular because you surely have the gift.

  2. I’m now not sure where you are getting your information,
    however great topic. I must spend a while studying more or figuring out more.
    Thank you for magnificent information I used to
    be searching for this information for my mission.

  3. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a
    lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit,
    but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. I will definitely be back.
