Ask Revlon to Stop Testing on Animals

Target: Revlon President, Alan Ennis

Goal: Tell the truth about animal testing on cosmetic products, and stop any testing that is occurring

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PETA has recently withdrawn its endorsement of Revlon as a cruelty-free company, now claiming that the company does indeed test on animals.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Animal testing is an outdated practice that is no longer necessary to ensure the safety of cosmetics.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.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Alan Ennis,

Until recently, Revlon has been a cruelty-free company. PETA is now claiming that your company tests its cosmetics on animals in manufacturing facilities in China.  As you know, PETA has recently bought large shares of your company in order to gain transparency about this issue and determine once and for all if you are using animal subjects in tests. Animal testing is compulsory for manufacturing cosmetics in China and Revlon has not denied its participation in this cruel and outdated practice.

A manufacturing company who distributes ingredients to Revlon has claimed that your company recently ordered tests on 50 animal subjects, wherein rabbits or mice are repeatedly injected with chemicals to determine at what concentration they are lethal. These animals end up dying a slow and painful death from the process, even though effective alternatives are available.

Revlon consumers want to know once and for all whether your company is testing products on animals in China. Since PETA has moved Revlon to the “does test on animals” list, Revlon representatives have neither confirmed nor denied this claim. Please come clean about animal testing in China, and stop this inhumane and outdated practice.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. This is terrible! Yet another reason I only shop @ Sephora…where they don’t sell Revlon!

  2. I won’t be buying anymore products from revlon !!

  3. Elizabeth Stuef says:

    I will not buy Revlon again. There are other alternatives that do not test on animals. Unacceptable
    behaviour in the 21st century, all for money. Do not buy stuff from China until they clean up their act!

  4. I am disgusted wit Revlon and certainly wont be purchasing any of their products!! Not acceptable!!

  5. Disgusting & greedy—this is a huge company I USED TO buy from…not anymore after this news.
    Why do you need to know how much makeup is lethal anyway? If people are dumb enough to eat the stuff they probably should die.

  6. There’s absolutely no excuse for this. The whole world knows that animal rights don’t exist in China.
    This is a cynical attempt by Revlon to ” get away with murder.”

  7. I can’t believe they are doing this. Like someone said here, it’s the 21st century!! Shameful!!

  8. TRUDY NICKOLS says:

    Please Stop testing on animals

  9. Michelle Hayward says:

    Er..I’m confused. Revlon have NEVER been cruelty free! Why have you been buying their crap? Only buy BUAV approved products

  10. Aside from being hideous and barbaric, these tests don’t prove anything. Animal testing is a big business, and Revlon wants big profits.

    • I don’t buy my dog anything made in China. Why would I put it on my face.(the makeup).Do you remember about two years ago so many animals died from kind of cement that somehow was put into the animal food. Read your labels and check your dog and cat food. Ann

  11. PRÁ MIM FOI MAIS UMA DECEPÇÃO……REVLON E TESTES EM ANIMAIS…..NÃO COMBINA…..EMPRESA NOS DIAS DE HOJE USANDO MÉTODOS PRÉ HISTÓRICOS, CRUÉIS E INEFICAZES. NÃO SOMOS RATOS OU ANIMAIS, MESMO QUE ESTES MÉTODOS FOSSEM EFICAZES, NADA JUSTIFICA SACRIFICAR E TORTURAR ANIMAIS, VCS DEVERIAM REVER OS SEUS CONCEITOS DE TECNOLOGIA AVANÇADA EM PRODUTOS COSMÉTICOS, SENDO QUE UTILIZAM MEIOS TÃO TOSCOS. HOJEM EM DIA, QUERENDO OU NÃO AS PESSOAS SE PREOCUPAM COM A MANEIRA QUE OS PRODUTOS SÃO ELABORADOS E A CUSTA DE QUE. SINCERAMENTE ENQUANTO ESSA CONDUTA DA EMPRESA COM RELAÇÃO AOS TESTES EM ANIMAIS CONTINUAR, EU, CONSUMIDORA ME RECUSO A COMPRAR PRODUTOS DE VCS E TAMBÉM ACONSELHAREI OUTROS A FAZEREM.

  12. Karen Lang-Ferrell says:

    Why repeatedly perform unnecessary tests? You have just lost me as a customer. What you do is barbaric!

  13. Not one damned dime will Revlon ever get from me! Do not give them another chance to stop lying and stop destroying animals for the sake of their bloated profits! Animal lives matter, Revlon does NOT !!! Toss them off the planet. Problem solved.

  14. Revlon does not want my money. How can I tell? They allow the testing of products on animals. Now, to tell others about this.

  15. Myrna Burdick says:

    I used to buy Revlon products specifically because they were, at that time, animal friendly. Since you have joined the chinese in their culture of cruelty towards animals, I no longer, and will never again buy
    your products.

    You cheapen the name of your company by consorting with the chinese and deserve to be written off of women’s lists as the place to buy cosmetics.

  16. Bronwyn Smith says:

    I used to buy my foundation from Revlon. I won’t be doing that anymore.

  17. what hell category chemicals r the cosmetic industry using these days that they have to test on animals…..
    i was ok when i used to hear like for cancer n other ailments….they have to go for it
    but for cosmetics !!!!

  18. if they think its OK to test on animals , we come from the same place the animals do ( planet earth ) why don’t they test the products on them selves. The animals should have the same rights we do.

  19. How sad for the poor animals. Shame on Revlon, you have joined Avon and Estée Lauder in betraying not only the animals but your customers. I will no longer buy products from you or any other company that chooses to torture animals. In China there are absolutely no animal welfare laws, it is horrific enough in any animal testing lab, but in China who knows……this move is shameful, disgusting and most of all heartbreaking.

  20. Jennifer Sharpe says:

    As soon as I heard Revlon were selling to China I stopped buying their products. It’s been a year since I started only buying off the cruelty free/no animal ingredients list. Cruelty Free Australia and PETA have these lists. It is time we as consumers made a protest with our wallets.
