Urban Decay Cosmetics Decides to Sell Out and Allow Animal Testing on it’s Products by Going Into Cruel China: Boycott and Tell Them What you Think


Come on my readers, let's step up on this one.

I’m hoping they read this.  See, they’ll say they’re not allowing animal testing, yet they are allowing their products to be sold in China, which means very likely (and they know this), they will be tested on animals.  

SO, THEY ARE OPENING THE DOOR TO ALLOWING ANIMAL TESTING ON THEIR PRODUCTS.  THEY’RE JUST LETTING SOMEONE ELSE DO THEIR DIRTY WORK!

Their very childish press release which can be read at http://www.temptalia.com/urban-decay-press-statement-animal-testing-and-china is so obviously focused on false logic and weird justification that they don’t realize it screams false rationalization so that they can make money.  They are in Newport Beach after all, and I’m sure they need to stay on top of the top and only think of themselves.

Just look at this paragraph and tell me if it doesn’t scream blindness in order for profit:

“For those of you unfamiliar with China’s policies, the sticking point is this: the Chinese government reserves the right to conduct animal testing with cosmetic products before the products are approved for use by Chinese citizens. The government has not told us if they have exercised this right with our products. So, our brand does not test on animals, but the Chinese government might conduct a one-time test using our products.”

That last sentence says it all you idiots!  You know that they likely will be tested on animals.

Oh, and here’s the one that really got me and proves how far they will go to rationalize their selfish decision.  

“But, we believe that change cannot and will not happen by outside pressure alone in a closed market. Change can only happen from within. When we enter the Chinese market, we will do our part to help make those changes.”

Ah ha ha ha ha ha!  Yeah right!  You’re going to change the cruel mindset of the cruelest people on earth.  

Ah ha. And I’ll wake up rich tomorrow!  Just read this article on just how cruel the Chinese are and get back to me on how you’ll change their evil mindset - 

Do us a favor Urban Decay…just be honest!  You want to make money in China.  You don’t care about anything else, and now you’ve joined the ranks of Tom’s of Maine who sold out to Clorox.

So readers, you know what to do.  

1. Boycott Urban Decay.  


Oh, and 3!  Realize they are not the only game in town in terms of cosmetics.  You can find a whole list of companies that do not test on animals here: http://geari.org/companies-dont-test-on-animals.html

MANY other cosmetics are available for us vegans! There's actually a ton of products in Dollar Stores, like L.A. Looks for make-up, White Rain for shampoo and shower gell, etc. Target now carries E.L.F Cosmetics....also very inexpensive. I use Say Yes to Cuccumbers shampoo and Say Yes to Carrots shower Gel, in CVS and Target. Except for one of their red lip pencles, Wet N Wild is also vegan. So we have lots of choices still
