I contacted both La Mer & PETA, here are their responses:
PETA:Under Chinese law many(?) cosmetic companies require animal testing, where La Mer's parent company manufactures products, thus PETA has now moved all 27 companies owned by Estée Lauder on their 'do test' list.
|PETA Be Nice to Bunnies App|
The PETA Be Nice to Bunnies App still lists La Mer as a company that does not test on animals (picture).
La Mer:"Our longstanding commitment to end animal testing has not changed: we do not test our products or ingredients on animals, nor do we ask others to test on our behalf" and "We are proud of our role in the great progress that has been made in eliminating animal testing around the world".
View the statement.
The Estée Lauder Companies also contributes funds to the Institute for In Vitro Sciences (IIVS), (non -animal testing sciences), which is also a cause that PETA supports! PETA?
I can only conclude that PETA might be looking for sensationalist attention, rather than factual reporting on La Mer? For shame PETA!
