Shu Umera Tests on Animals! - Page 2

Re: Shu Umera Tests on Animals!

i dont care if it violates human right, murders and rapists should be the test subjects. Imo, you should have no rights once you decided to take a persons life. Why should an innocent little animal be tortured because the market wants bigger and longer lashes?

Re: Shu Umera Tests on Animals!

I was just wondering.. Where does it say that Shu Uemura tests on animals?

I just checked on PETA.org, CaringConsumer.com, NAVS.org websites, Paula Begoun, "Don't go to the cosmetics counter w/o me" book and none of them have Shu Uemura listed under "Companies That Do Test on Animals"..

This may be related to the fact that L'Oreal owns them.. L'Oreal states that they have been animal friendly since 1989, but there's still some debate..

Here are a few highlights of other L'Oreal owned companies: Kérastase • Redken • Matrix • Garnier • Maybelline New York • Lancôme • Biotherm • Kiehl's • Shu Uemura • YSL Beauté • Giorgio Armani Parfums and Cosmetics • Ralph Lauren Fragrances • Diesel Fragrances • The Body Shop

All of these companies are missing on the PETA.org website. Probably due to the same association.

Oh God. If that is true, I'll never buy Shu again. I can't believe there are still companies out there doing this. I mean I know that a few cheap drugstore brands do them because they're just after the money, but their products are cheap too, so i guess they kinda 'make it up to the customers' (I don't belong to those though >_>), but Shu? They test their stuff on animals AND sell it for a ridiculous price. Does that even make sense? I don't nessecarily have a problem with the price being so high, but ,I'd have expected better from Shu Uemura (if it's true that is).

I really hate animal testing and thinks its just a stupid alternative for cheap companies who don't care about the customer and all they care about is money. Because apparently animal testing saves money. But so what? They already have semi-expensive products.
What a shame!!!!

If this is true, do you know how many animals they would have to keep in cages, bins, etc. to collect (brush out or shave) these hairs to make a gozillian MAC brushes. That would mean that wild animals like squirrels, badgers, mink (other companies make mink (kolinsky) & badger brushes) would have to be kept in unnatural conditions. In NY, only certified wildlife rehabbers can keep wildlife. These brushes come from Japan & (ugh) China. My guess is that the keeping of these animals would be akin to our puppy mills! The only natural hair that is OK in my book is goat hair because they are herding animals & would not have to be incarcerated like other animals. I also have to assume that some of the pony hair comes from animals going to slaughter. If you recall several years ago that outercoats coming to the US from China had dog fur on them. Sometimes I truly think that some of these brushes are made of German Shepard hair -- one of the Chinese's dogs of choice.

I am going to contact Shu Uemura about their animal testing policies next week & I will post back. If they do animal testing (along with Shisiedo) that means that Sephora isn't carrying only products which are cruelty-free since both brands are carried by Sephora.

On Estee Lauder's website they say that they do not test on animals, however, if a new ingredient is developed, then, they have to abide by the FDA testing protocol.

Although, I do not support testing drugs (i.e. insulin, etc.) on animals, I do, however, see a difference between drug testing vs. torturing an animal for the mere vanity of wearing makeup! What kills me is that some of these companies just test simply to get governmental grants or as a business write-off. It's enough to make you sick.
