Exclamation Animals Die For Cosmetic Vanity. (Co. List)

Hey!

I was looking in my cupboard today to find a hair product that I would of liked to use if it wasnt tainted by corporate animal death. I checked online and found it was an animal tested product... so in the bin it went!

For those of you that aren't aware, here is some information about animal experimentation/vivisection. And further reading on the testing companies and the cruelty-free companies.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_..._and_suffering
Quote:
The terms animal testing, animal experimentation, animal research, in vivo testing, and vivisection have similar denotations but different connotations. Literally, "vivisection" means the "cutting up" of a living animal, and historically referred only to experiments that involved the dissection of live animals. The term is now used to refer to any experiment using living animals; for example, the Encyclopaedia Britannica defines "vivisection" as: "Operation on a living animal for experimental rather than healing purposes; more broadly, all experimentation on live animals." For others, the word has a pejorative connotation, implying torture, suffering, and death. The word "vivisection" is preferred by those opposed to this research, whereas scientists typically use the term "animal experimentation."

The controversy surrounding animal testing dates back to the 17th century. In 1655, the advocate of Galenic physiology Edmund O'Meara said that "the miserable torture of vivisection places the body in an unnatural state." O'Meara and others argued that animal physiology could be affected by pain during vivisection, rendering results unreliable.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, in 2006 about 670,000 animals (not including rats, mice, birds, or invertebrates) were used in procedures that did not include more than momentary pain or distress. About 420,000 were used in procedures in which pain or distress was relieved by anesthesia, while 84,000 were used in studies that would cause pain or distress that would not be relieved.

Cosmetics testing on animals is particularly controversial. Such tests, which are still conducted in the U.S., involve general toxicity, eye and skin irritancy, phototoxicity (toxicity triggered by ultraviolet light) and mutagenicity.






New Law Bans Cosmetics Tests on Animals — Almost
http://www.peta.org.uk/feat/feat-cosmetics-testing.asp
Quote:
On 11 March 2009, the European Union (EU) implemented an amendment to its Cosmetics Directive bringing in a partial ban on the sale anywhere in the EU of cosmetics and toiletries containing ingredients which have been tested on animals.

However, welcome as it is, the new EU ban doesn't make cosmetics testing completely go away, and caring consumers should still pay attention to what they buy. Although the EU is making great strides, makeup and toiletries containing animal-tested ingredients will still be available in many high street shops after 11 March.

The Cosmetics Directive has loopholes and exceptions which mean that animal testing can still take place, and ingredients which are tested on animals can still make their way into products on the shelves. The following loopholes are included:

* Certain kinds of animal tests will still be allowed until 2013.
* Tests could still be done on ingredients to meet other requirements, including meeting the requirements of different laws, such as to determine whether the ingredients cause damage to the environment, or laws abroad.

That means that it's still important to choose carefully when you buy cosmetics and toiletries.

Quote:
The 2009 EU ban is a huge step forward, but while animal testing for cosmetics is now very much reduced, it can still go on. Meanwhile, there is no law whatsoever to stop animal testing for household cleaning products.

Companies with a real commitment to stopping animal testing go above and beyond the law and don't do any tests of any ingredients on any animals. They also don't pay anyone else to do the testing for them and don't use ingredients which are animal-tested.
***HOW TO SPOT AN ANIMAL TESTING COMPANY***
***GO CRUELTY FREE*** Lists companies that are all approved under the Humane Cosmetics Standard (HCS) and/or the Humane Household Products Standard (HHPS). This means that they no longer conduct or commission animal testing for their cosmetics and/or household products.
***CRUELTY FREE LIST OF INTERNATIONAL COMPANIES/COMPANIES CERTIFIED IN 2009, ALONG WITH DETAILED LISTINGS OF VARIED CONSUMER PRODUCTS***
***LIST OF ANIMAL INGREDIENTS IN FOOD, COSMETICS AND OTHER PRODUCTS*** Please note, however, that it is not all-inclusive. There are thousands of technical and patented names for ingredient variations. Furthermore, many ingredients known by one name can be of animal, vegetable, or synthetic origin.
Cheers, Peace.

Damn that's a lot of companies. Excellent post, infin8. I've been trying to use more Liz Earle products recently. From their website:

Animal testing
We never do it.

No animal ingredients
None of our ingredients are of animal origin (except beeswax, propolis and manuka honey).
All products are suitable for vegetarians.

At one time I simply used to rely on the "not tested on animals" label. But then I heard that this can be a con. That label can be used to say that yes the 'final' product itself wasn't tested on animals. But the various ingredients prior to them all coming together as the final product, may have been tested on animals and they don't have to disclose that. Only the final product itself.

It's how companys can fool you. They 'are' being truthfull as far as they are concerned with the final product, and law is concerned, because it is just playing with words and people's assumptions when they read something.

It's how companys tend to get around it all. It's the same with many things. Somebody may buy a very pricey leather bag in Florence with a prominent label saying "Made in Italia". Trouble is, they may just be referring to a metal clip on the bag that was added to it in Italy. The leather may have come from India, the cut and stitching done in Romania, and only the clip is "Made in Italia". Cons like this go on all the time. Another thing comes to mind.

Years back when I worked in a cheese factory for a short while. It was exactly the same blocks of cheese going through the machine and being cut, but every so often the machine would stop and we had to put on new wrappers for different outlets. Exactly the same cheese, but sometimes as much as £2.50 difference in price simply because the other label had a nice picture of cows in a meadow on the front and was to be sold in a National Trust souveneir shop or something. It was pretty amusing, but also shocking at what goes on. Which is why you're often better off just buying plain label stuff from supermarkets. Often the product (beans for example) all come from exactly the same source, and you're paying a fortune for fancy labels.

Anyway, I've gone way off topic here. But anyway.............

Exactly, they are very deceptive on profitting from both consumer sides of the coin. And rely on peoples ignorance to get their products sold.

Thank you for posting this infin8,

I don't know what I'd do without my local Co-op for things like dishwasher tablets and shampoo - it's all BUAV approved.

I try so hard to be as cruelty free as possible, but find myself compromised at times and then suffer such guilt

Those pictures are truly heart-breaking. Why are people so self-centred and blind

You don't even need most toiletries...The personal hygiene business is a huge scam.

Clothesline of Shame’ Against Animal Testing


Procter & Gamble’s ‘dirty laundry’ hung out.


A typical Senario.....


Procter & Gamble, one of the world’s largest known animal testers of cosmetic and household products will have their ‘dirty laundry’ publicly exposed in central Auckland and Christchurch to highlight cruel experimental procedures performed on animals.

On Saturday, 22 May, New Zealand will join international protests against Procter & Gamble’s crude animal-testing policy. Cruelty-free campaigners from SAFE will hang ‘blood’ splattered sheets on specially erected clotheslines while displaying messages against Procter & Gamble’s
product testing methods.

“SAFE’s clotheslines of shame demonstrate to the public that companies who continue to conduct animal testing cannot hide their crude and painful procedures. Procter & Gamble subjects animals to harmful and often lethal experiments. An estimated 50 000 animals die at the hands of Procter & Gamble every year. A recent undercover investigation identified shocking
experiments involving rats and dogs,” says SAFE’s Campaign Director Hans Kriek.

“In one case, over 400 young rats were either castrated or forced through premature puberty through sex hormone injections. The rats were repeatedly injected with gender-altering chemicals that shrunk their sex organs. After three weeks, all the animals were killed by neck dislocation, and their bodies and genitalia dismembered to be weighed and analysed.”

It is understood Procter & Gamble has been under scrutiny from scientists who have criticised these kinds of tests, pointing to “major scientific problems” with interpreting the results, and noting “severe animal welfare concerns” due to “complicated procedures and repeated injections”.
SAFE is calling on consumers to choose only cruelty-free products thereby not supporting cruel animal product testing.

“If consumers stop buying Procter & Gamble products then this company will have no choice other than to abandon its cruel animal-testing practices.”

Huntingdon Life Sciences
Already notorious in Britain, Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) is the third-largest – and probably the most reviled – contract testing company in the world. HLS' "science" has been the subject of five undercover investigations exposing tremendous cruelty to animals. Every day, HLS experiments on and kills an average of 500 animals – including rats, rabbits, pigs, dogs and primates – who are forced to ingest and inhale all sorts of toxic chemicals, including toxic doses of pharmaceuticals, foodstuffs, and pesticides and chemicals such as weed killers and disinfectants.

We have to find the smaller unknown testing facilities.

The EU Regulation REACH (Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals ) comes into force this month.


The new regulation requires that about 30,000 chemicals currently being used in the EU must now be registered and tested for damage to people, animals and the environment within the next 11 years. It signals the start of the largest animal testing programme Europe has ever seen.

This was an opportunity for Europe to overhaul its safety testing procedures, replacing outdated, cruel and unreliable animal tests with modern, sensitive and sophisticated humane research techniques, but it has been missed.

Eight million animals or more will suffer and die terribly in these tests, this is a sad day for animals and science. It is widely acknowledged that animal tests are fundamentally flawed by species differences, yet once again we are being locked into these test methods by regulation rather than science

Yeah, the main ingredient that does that is sodium laureth (or lauryl) sulfate, a chemical degreaser that forms 1,4-dioxane which was used in "" and is known to cause cancer.

Apart from that though...
  1. "Shampoos with SLS could retard healing and keep children's eyes from developing properly. Children under six years old are especially vulnerable to improper eye development. (Summary of Report of Research to Prevent Blindness, Inc. conference."
  2. "Sodium Lauryl Sulphate can cause cataracts in adults and delays the healing of wounds in the surface of the cornea."
  3. "Sodium Lauryl Sulphate has a low molecular weight and so is easily absorbed by the body. It builds up in the heart, liver and brain and can cause major problems in these areas."
  4. "Sodium Lauryl Sulphate causes skin to flake and to separate and causes roughness on the skin."
  5. "Sodium Lauryl Sulphate causes dysfunction of the biological systems of the skin."
  6. "Sodium Lauryl Sulphate is such a caustic cleanser that it actually corrodes the hair follicle and impairs the ability to grow hair."
  7. "Sodium Lauryl Sulphate is routinely used in clinical studies deliberately to irritate the skin so that the effects of other substances can be tested."

This reminds me of a song by The Divine Comedy called Generation Sex.

Generation Sex, injects

the sperm, of worms

into the eggs of field mice

so you can look real nice

for the boys.
