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!
Dr. Herbert Fisk Johnson III, Chairman & CEO of S.C. Johnson & Son, Inc.

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 dont 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.
