Petition Urges Elizabeth Arden to Come Clean about Animal Testing
A new Physicians Committee petition urges the cosmetics company Elizabeth Arden to come clean about its animal testing policy.
The Change.org petition states: “Arden says it doesn’t perform animal tests, ‘except in the rare instances in which it’s required by law.’ But Arden sells in China and Brazil, countries that frequently and clearly require animal testing for most cosmetics ingredients. These tests don’t protect humans. In 150 human clinical trials of inflammatory diseases (including asthma, which can be triggered by some fragrances), 100 percent of drugs developed using mice failed.”
Petition signers tell Arden’s CEO: “Please #ComeClean to consumers about Elizabeth Arden’s animal testing by passing the Physicians Committee’s shareholder resolution at your upcoming shareholders meeting. You’ll join the growing number of cosmetics companies that are working to end animal testing internationally and protect public health.”
