| news/petitions

Hi Fellow Animal Advocates, Please sign and post to your networks the Care2 petition I draft targeting Avon, Mary Kay and Estee Lauder. Due to their desire to market products in China, they have quietly resumed animal testing. http://www.thepetitionsite.com/199/430/336/avon-este-lauder-mary-kay-resume-testing-cosmetics-on-animals/ Thanks, Kirsten

4 years ago

I am horrified to learn that the AVON, MARY KAY, & ESTEE Lauder companies have started those COSMETICS TESTINGS ON INNOCENT ANIMALS. I always purchased these Cosmetics simply because THEY WERE ANIMAL CRUELTY AND ANIMAL TESTING FREE????? Now we all need to spread the word of this bizzare behaviour of Greedy cosmeticians. No more Avon, Mary Kay or Estee Lauder for my family.

Subject: Avon, Estee Lauder, Mary Kay Resume Testing Cosmetics on Animals
Ms. Sherilyn McCoy
CEO, Avon

David Holl

CEO, Estee Lauder

To whom it concerns,

As American firms jostle for a piece of China’s $15-billion-and-growing cosmetics market, Avon, Mary Kay, and Estée Lauder have quietly turned their backs on 20 years of "no animal testing" policies, according to People for the Ethical Treatment for Animals , which until recently counted all three among the largest mainstream names on its cruelty-free list.

Although animal testing of cosmetics is neither required nor banned under U.S. law, the Chinese government continues to require skin- and eye-irritation tests before certain products can be marketed in the country.

Note that I'm very disappointed in your backsliding.
I still won't buy your products as long as they are tested on animals!

Sincerely:

Emails sent but the Avon one came back undeliverable.
