A new report by the consumer advocacy group CHOICE reveals just a few of the deceptive practices used to market cosmetics. A broad survey of products found that many corporations employ friendly images and ambiguous language to falsely suggest the product is cruelty-free. Companies tempted by the growing Chinese market (and the promise of profit) must submit samples for animal testing. As the report concludes: "just because they've put a bunny on it, doesn't make it 'cruelty free'."

Multinational corporations must contend with different and often conflicting sets of standards when it comes to dealing in foreign markets. In many cases, executives face a difficult decision: concede to local laws and regulations or stand by basic principles of animal welfare. When antiquated regulations demand animal testing, companies often capitulate rather than lose access to that market and, consequently, those profits.

As a result, millions of animals are exposed to a series of painful tests each year, often resulting in death. In this time of technology and innovation, there are several compelling alternatives to animal testing, such as 3-D human skin, computer models, and test tube cell tests.

Urge major cosmetic companies to adopt non-animal testing and pledge to buy only cruelty-free products!

As corporations with a global reach, you are preeminently positioned to affect positive change throughout the world. By choosing to continue using animal testing methods, however, you choose to perpetuate a cruel and unnecessary practice.

The reality is animal testing methods are obsolete. There are many different ways to conduct chemical tests that don’t harm living beings, like the use of 3D human skin or test tube cells. These modern alternatives are more reliable and less costly.

Put simply, there is no reason for you to continue to harm and kill innocent animals. Many corporations have adopted cruelty-free testing procedures and I urge you to do the same. Until you do, I will not buy any of your products.

Jan 28, 2016 Linda Brandon For the last 30+ years I've to always purchase cruelty free products. It is absolutely unfathomable that any animal should be harmed to make a product "safe". There is NO reason to use animals to test products for safety.
