According to PETA and many other animal rights group (except for GAN), Shiseido is still testing on animals. But when I reviewed their company website, I noticed that it had added that its products are not tested on animals, while their ingredients may be:
Note that some of the notorious companies who test on animals also have similar statements, saying that they only test when required by law. So in the end, that usually means they still test (ingredients), even though they claim their finished products aren’t.
It’s mind boggling how animal testing is still ongoing, considering plenty of fabulous cruelty-free brands such as Smashbox, Urban Decay, Too Faced, Josie Maran, etc. roll out perfectly safe, quality products enjoyed by thousands of millions of users the world over! Not to mention animal testing really means squat. No animal shares our exact DNA. Not even the great apes, who had been tortured and killed over and over, for nothing but our vanity.
Shiseido is one of my favourite brands and I had to stop buying when I found out about their animal testing. It’s a shame because their makeup is so good. I hope they will put an end to it soon.
Here’s to hoping that animal testing will be outlawed globally.
