Elizabeth Arden: Come Clean About Animal Testing
A mobile billboard outside of the Elizabeth Arden headquarters in Miramar, Fla., for the November shareholders meeting asked that the cosmetics company come clean about its animal testing. A Physicians Committee resolution requested that Arden make information on its animal use publicly available on its website and accessible on a constant basis, updated annually. The resolution also asked Arden to contribute to an effort to implement nonanimal methods in China. Nearly 15,000 people signed a Physicians Committee petition asking Arden CEO Scott Beattie to pass the resolution. The campaign is part of the Physicians Committee’s ongoing efforts to replace animal experiments in cosmetics testing with human-relevant cellular methods, which are cheaper and faster, ensuring safer cosmetics for all.
