Dear Santa, Please End Animal Testing

I’ve been planning on posting this for a few weeks. I was going to post it on December 1st, but now is as good of a time as any to share it. It’s simple and straight to the point.

Please end animal testing for cosmetics

Revlon, Maybelline, Cover Girl, L’Oreal, Estee Lauder, MAC, Smashbox, Avon, Coty, Proctor & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, Shiseido, Chanel, Unilever, Bobbi Brown, Tom Ford… the could go on and on.

In 2013, the EU is supposed to ban all animal testing. I think some of this has already been enacted, but I don’t know all the details.

However, it is my hope that by the EU banning animal testing, the USA and other countries will follow suit.

And now, in the wake of the news of L’Oreal purchasing Urban Decay, I sincerely hope that Urban Decay will remain cruelty-free, and that L’Oreal and the rest will go cruelty-free.

What’s your Christmas wish this year?

      I would wish for the same thing, too! Thanks for publicizing this issue so consistently, Phyrra.

      I wish this too, but it seems the trend is to go to the dark side these days.  When companies like UD who swore off testing first threatened China then sold off to the biggest world offender, L’Oreal, it became clear that the selfishness of the consumer is allowing this to happen.  This is beyond corporate greed… it is consumers unwilling today to fight the fight we did in the 70s and 80s to get these same companies to stop.  Now, corporations know that consumers are gutless.  It’s not for Santa to do, but all the world’s little elves.
