L’Oreal is a successful cosmetic brand. For years they’ve been making quality products. What most people don’t know is that L’Oreal has been testing on animals. L’Oreal claims to have stopped, or that they will stop in the year 2012 or 2013. PETA and some other organizations have been investigating L’Oreal, and have found that they are still animal testing. Some of the things they do to animals are:
Putting harsh chemicals in rabbit eyes because rabbits don’t have tear ducts and cannot relive pain in their eyes
Scraping skin off of different animals until their skin is ultra-sensitive, then they apply dangerous chemicals to their skin and make sure they can’t rub or itch their skin. The chemicals are kept there for a long period of time to be sure they don’t irritate human skin.
They sometimes test even finished products on animals, which can make their skin and fur crusty and irritated.
Animals are kept in small, locked areas and are not allowed to leave unless they are needed to have something tested on them.
Animals are hung, chained and bolted on to walls so they don’t move while scientists conduct experiments.
Irritating perfumes with high alcohol percentages are tested on animals
Usually, animals die in the labs and are rarely set free. If they are, they’re eyes, skin and fur are most likely permanently damaged. Thankfully, some organizations have rescued animals and they have been nursed back to health. But, most animals are not rescued. The treatment of these animals is unfair and unethical and it needed to be stopped NOW. If you can about animals, please sign this petition to show how much you care. Together, we can stop animal testing.
