Big cosmetic brands taken off PETA’s white list

Posted on 21 February 2012

Avon, Estée Lauder, and Mary Kay have been removed from PeTA’s ‘Companies That Don’t Test on Animals’ list.

According to PeTA’s website, these companies have resumed paying for tests on animals … without letting consumers know. After confirming with each company, PETA has downgraded the companies to our “do test” list. All 3 companies claim it is because of requirements of the Chinese government in order to market products in that country.

However, for each test required by the Chinese government, superior non-animal methods are available. Mary Kay has taken steps to work with Chinese officials on the acceptance of these non-animal tests, but Avon and Estée Lauder seem to have agreed to the tests without any objection.
