Thoughts About Animal Experimentation II
"It doesn't take a genius to know that using animals for cruel and unnecessary cosmetics tests is unjustifiable."
Too Faced founder Jerrod Blandino
"I have built my life and my company with love, kindness, positivity and compassion for animals. That will never change."
Carl Jung, MD
"During my medical education, I found vivisection horrible, barbarous and above all unnecessary."
Neven Mimica, Member of the European Commission
"One year ago from today the full ban of animal testing for cosmetics entered into force in the European Union. With this ban, the Union has taken global leadership to demonstrate that safe and innovative cosmetics are possible without new animal tests. I am very encouraged that other countries are now starting to follow. To support this, I will work to make sure that the European approach and alternative methods are an integral part of the Union's trade agenda and international cooperation."
"I will continue the ongoing work to ensure coherent implementation of this ban inside the European Union and monitor its impacts and to promote research, development and validation of new alternative methods for safety testing."
"I'm behind the work of Cruelty Free International to ensure that animals don't suffer for our cosmetics."
"Millions of families in the UK share their home with a dog or cat. They enrich our lives and bring us so much happiness. It is, therefore, unacceptable to me that in this day and age cats and dogs are still being tested on in UK laboratories. Please join me and sign the BUAV’s petition to call on the Government to end these cruel and outdated tests once and for all."
