NARS: Stick With Commitment to Cruelty-Free Cosmetics
NARS cosmetics is a popular cosmetics brand that has been committed to creating products without animal testing. Unfortunately, in order to sell products in China, brands must test on animals. Instead of forgoing opening to the Chinese market, NARS has decided to test products on animals so they can sell in China.
Sign the petition to ask NARS to keep their commitment to be cruelty free and choose not to sell in China.
Fans of NARS have been speaking up online, especially instagram, about their disappointment in the brand's choice. Many folks use NARS specifically because they have refused to test on animals and those folks are feeling betrayed now. NARS has been a champion of a world with no animal testing for a long time, and this move to change their core values just for their bottom line is unimpressive at best.
I personally use some NARS products for this purpose and am really upset that I no longer feel I can support them.
There are many safe ways to test cosmetics without using animals and the only way to get countries like China to see that is for companies like NARS to refuse to go along with their laws.

Good news: this action is backed by many in the beauty industry, including Katie Cleary, top model, actress, and producer, who is a leader in the animal welfare movement through her non-profit Peace 4 Animals and on her news network, World Animal News (WAN). Katie said in a statement "We have the power to say NO to laws in China that require animal testing for all cosmetics, it is wrong and must end. The time is now! NARS should listen to its customers and choose compassion over profit!"
