How sad that with all of the technology we have today that any company would revert back to these practices. I don't usually buy Avon or Estee Lauder, but I have a good friend who sells Mary Kay and I know that she will be losing customers.

I thought that happened a few years ago.

Estee Lauder owns other popular brands such as Aveda, Bobbie Brown, Bumble and Bumble, Clinique, Coach, Donna Karen, MAC, Michael Kors, Origins, Prescriptives, Smashbox, Tom Ford Beauty, Tommy Hilfiger, and Tory Burch.

Taken from Fact Sheet: Cosmetic Testing : The Humane Society of the United States

Q: What animal tests are carried out to test cosmetics?
A: Although they are not required by law, several tests are commonly performed by exposing mice, rats, rabbits and guinea pigs to cosmetics ingredients. This can include:

skin and eye irritation tests where chemicals are rubbed onto the shaved skin or dripped into the eyes of restrained rabbits without any pain relief

repeated force-feeding studies lasting weeks or months to look for signs of general illness or specific health hazards such as cancer or birth defects; and

widely condemned "lethal dose" tests, in which animals are forced to swallow large amounts of a test chemical to determine the dose that causes death.

At the end of a test the animals are killed, normally by asphyxiation, neck-breaking, or decapitation. Pain relief is not provided. In the United States, a large percentage of the animals used in such testing (such as laboratory-bred rats and mice) are not counted in official statistics and receive no protection under the Animal Welfare Act.
