Animal Testing

I have a question to pose to you all:

What is your perspective on MAC's animal testing policy?

Up until yesterday, I was under the impression that MAC and its parent company, Estee Lauder, did not test on animals. However, after reading this article, I'm not so sure what to think.

Here's what I read:


The second category are cosmetics companies that tend not to test on animals themselves but continue to buy, use and benefit financially from chemical ingredients that have recently been tested on animals by their suppliers. Many cosmetic brands fall into this category e.g.

Avon
Boots brands
Chanel
Clarins
Clinique
Estee Lauder
Givenchy
Revlon
Tresemme

Supermarkets:
Asda
Lidl
Morrisons

Most of them are very clever at deceiving the public with the claims they make about animal testing.


The argument is basically that while Estee Lauder does not themselves test their products on animals, they do use chemicals and ingredients that are known to be tested on animals.

Where do you fall on this issue?
