Ask Revlon to Stop Testing on Animals
BACKGROUND | SOURCE FORCE CHANGE
Revlon has long been considered a cruelty-free company. However, in recent years Revlon has opened up cosmetic manufacturing in China, where animal testing is compulsory. When asked whether the company is testing on animals in China, Revlon representatives responded by saying, “Revlon is in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations related to animal testing.” This arbitrary statement has led consumers to believe that Revlon is hiding the fact that it now tests on animals.
PETA has recently withdrawn its endorsement of Revlon as a cruelty-free company, now claiming that the company does indeed test on animals. PETA also recently bought a large share of Revlon’s stock so that they could determine once and for all whether Revlon is abusing animals for the sake of beauty.
An independent manufacturer who sells ingredients to Revlon to make cosmetics also reported that Revlon recently ordered tests on 50 animals. These tests involve injecting rabbits or mice over and over again until the subjects die in order to determine at what concentration the product is lethal.
Animal testing is an outdated practice that is no longer necessary to ensure the safety of cosmetics. Alternative methods, such as using human cells, are readily available and equally effective. There is no reason in this modern world that animals need to be tortured for the sake of beauty products. Further, Revlon needs to come clean to its consumers about animal testing once and for all. Please ask Revlon to admit to animal testing and to stop abusing animals.

I am shocked to learn that REVLON discontinued its non-animal-testing protocol, and continues to support animal experimentation via its Chinese market. As such, as long as REVLON continues to unnecessarily capitalize on the mutilation, torture, and death of animals, I will not financially support you.
Please make both the ethical and financially-responsible decision to discontinue animal experimentation immediately: join an increasing body of corporations who are listening to a concerned and attentive consumer population who refuse to be complicit in animal experimentation.
revlon, in the name
of beauty you torture
is this to be your
claim to fame?
