I think that while there may be some things, like life-saving measures, that "need" to be tested on animals, things like makeup and fragrances do not.  Many stolen dogs or unwanted strays are sold to labs. we don't need to treat  animals in an inhumane way for the sake of our "stuff". There are ways now to test things without live animals. ANd don't get me started on where animal by-products in our cosmetics come from...it is awful.  I should be better about the things I purchase, so it isn't like I am some soapbox vegan who never, ever purchases anything tested on or made from animal products. I am trying to improve. I checked out the ACURE website, they have great face, hair and body products that are very reasonably priced. I think every little thing hellps the environment, but the sad reality is we will never get rid of these practices, no matter who complains or what we don't buy.

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

I used to work in a lab where we tested on animals, for medical purposes. There is a time and place for it. We used mice and they were all treated well and euthanized very humanely. I realize that some people advocate that no euthanasia is humane, but there are certainly forms that are far less humane than others. You cannot always initially test on people. A few years ago there was a drug being developed that resulted in patients in phase 1 trials ending up causing Guillian Barre, a temporary ascending paralysis that is usually reversible but can have permanent damage. I would rather we figure that out on rats than people. Phase 1 testing typically is figuring out what the upper limits are. the results sometimes have effects we could not predict, but I would rather test and euthanize a rat than have to tell a family that this drug had huge, unanticipated negative effects. Animal testing allows us to figure out a lot of potential negative effects before we use it on people.

All those animals that are being tested on would never even be alive if not for that reason. Just like cows, some are bred just for one purpose which is testing.

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

This list is just wrong wrong wrong and I find it frustrating that Sephora is spreading false information.

If you are asking brands if "they" test their products on animals, they can say no if they test the ingredients or unfinished products. Or if they hire a third party to test. Or buy from a third party. Or sell in China.

Stila and Smashbox are listed on that list and both test by law and have not been removed from PETA's super unreliable list. There are other brands on that list selling in China as well.

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Thank you!! I was insulted when Sephora sent me this link as a response to my suggestion that they create a cruelty-free search function. 

 

I love shopping at Sephora but I'm really disappointed by how inaccurate this list is. 

VanessaBeauty10

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Most of these are tested on animals - due to the China sales.

SEPHORA brand DOES test on animals - you sold to China!

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

For those interested in learning about medical testing, alternatives and reasons why medical animals models can be unhelpful (aspirin kills cats and dogs, not people) and that a majority of medications that pass animal trials fail human trials, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine is a great resource. You can google it to find more!

 

Kudos to those trying to become more informed! I know I'm trying to limited my purchases to cruelty free companies, and each cruelty free purchase is a step in the right direction! If anyone knows of a great cruelty free fragrance company, I'd love to hear it, that seems to be a hard cruelty free product to find.

Aspirin can be given to dogs, the dose is different - and too much can just as easily kill a person. veterinarians typically recommend baby aspirin for dogs with arthritis :smileyhappy:

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

I have been researching cruelty free fragrance companies for a while now!  Child Perfume is not tested on animals, and neither is The Pink Room, Diptyque, Profumum, and some other other niche fragrances sold at Luckyscent.  You can message me for a more extensive list on my findings.  I'm a perfume addict!

I hear such great things about Diptyque, I will have to take the plunge!

It's very simple if it is confusing for you. Don't buy it and don't wear it.

 Urban Decay sounds very sketchy.  They say they are against animal testing, then last year turned around and said they were going to sell in China, retracted it when people threatened to never buy their products again, and now I just read someone else's post that they are owned by L'Oreal, a company notorious for testing on animals?

DTalksAll

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

I think L'oreal only tests something like less than 3% of all their products & ingredients on animals. They are one of the innovators in alternative tissue testing and have been doing so for over 20 years. 

The Body Shop, Kiehls, Pureology are all owned by L'Oreal. Some people say supporting only the cruelty free brands from a Company prove a point, others think it's best to stop all purchases from the Company. 

raquelcali

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

3% is enough for me!  Over 70,000 dogs are in labs being tested on now by these companies!  I definitely won't be buying Urban Decay or any other company that is under the umbrella of L'Oreal.

In 2010 US government statistics put the number of laboratory animals used in research at 1,136,567.   This number only accounted for 95% of US labs.

 

Many different species are used around the world, but the most common include mice, fish, rats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, farm animals, birds, cats, dogs, mini-pigs, and non-human primates (monkeys, and in some countries, chimpanzees).

raquelcali

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

I'm so sickened right now.  I just found out that dogs were experimented on in labs across the U.S.  Primates are so close to humans genetically;  that is just so creepy and scary.  

daeidre

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

The fact that they're close to humans genetically is the reason we need to use them for research. This sort of thing can potentially save people from being in vegetative states for lifetimes. As I said, animal research is only carried out when strictly necessary and within precise guidelines. The results help us understand animals and ourselves. This isn't, as you objected to earlier, for vanity, it's for the benefit of the human species as a whole.

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

This is not true. Dogs, and other animals, are used to test toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, they are often used in early stage testing (and they are used for college and grad/med school experiments). These tests are not pleasant; Irritation tests frequently require animals have painful chemicals dropped into their eyes, lethal dose tests require animals be force fed large quantities of toxic substances to discern lethal dose. Yes, animals testing may be of help to humans with grave medical conditions but there is no need to test cosmetics, household products and the like. And the test subjects in late-stage tests should be treated with immense compassion and their suffering minimized but this is often not the case; animals are often kept in cold, clinical environments, pain killers are not given and animals are almost always killed in the end (when I was in grad school the test rats were frozen alive when no longer of use).

 

We know enough about product toxicity to understand if a substance has risk of harm; if there is any risk of harm, find another substance, there is no need to torture an animal nor expose humans to toxic substances for purely selfish pursuits. There is currently a bill pending in congress to ban testing of cosmetics on animals as it does occur and is very loosely regulated, there are alternatives and its value is dubious in many cases.

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

You have no idea what you are talking about.  I suggest you do a little more research.   These 'guidelines' you mention only apply to those animals where the testing procedure itself is not skewed.  Meaning, basically they can do whatever they want to do animals for the sake of science (does not interfere with "the design, outlines, or guidelines of actual research or experimentation).

Re: Animal Testing, Gluten & Vegan Info

Wow, I have no idea what I'm talking about? Maybe that's because you have failed to produce any relevant information or answer my questions with more than insults and rants. I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that research and ethics doesn't work in the US like it does in Australia where I usually live. Last I heard, my university (where this research is taking place) introduced ethics guidelines for dealing with crustaceans. They take this stuff seriously. Even a proposal can only ever be approved if it's deemed absolutely necessary and can be done with no pain to the animals, very few test subjects, and results that far surpass those achievable by other means.

P.S. Not quite sure what you mean by "where the testing procedure is not strewed."
