Avon, Mary Kay, Estée Lauder Paying for Animal Testing

It just got harder to buy makeup. And to be a bunny in China. Fuck. From PETA:

For more than two decades, Avon, Mary Kay, and Estée Lauder have been among the largest mainstream international companies on PETA’s cruelty-free lists. Avon banned all tests on animals following PETA’s massive “Avon Killing” campaign, and Mary Kay pledged to go cruelty-free after cartoonist Berkeley Breathed mocked the company in his popular Bloom County comic strip. Since then, all three companies have enjoyed the support of PETA and millions of consumers who choose to buy cosmetics from companies that don’t harm animals. But now we have learned that all three companies have been paying for tests on animals at the requirement of the Chinese government—and they did not inform PETA or consumers that their policies had changed. We have no choice but to downgrade them by placing them on our list of companies that test on animals.

You can read the full story here. If this pisses you off, write to these makeup companies to let them know you won’t support testing on animals, no matter where it’s happening.

    Mary Kay is a pyramid scheme that has bilked women for millions of dollars. Since they have no regard for fellow humans, one can’t expect them to care about animals except for false advertising.

    This is shitty news, mainly because many vegans bought makeup from these brands and that money went indirectly to animal testing. I never really liked these brands myself (never really trusted them) since not all their products were vegan to begin with (due to ingredients) so it’s always a safe call to go with all-vegan cosmetic companies such as ZUZU or Beauty without Cruelty. These small ethical companies need the support from vegans in order to be still around in five years. Here is a cheap recommended read and a great guide .

    Everyone should tweet and send messages on Facebook about it that we won’t stand for this! They have taken ten steps back.
