Does Clinique test on animals?

Postby abisha » Tue Jan 10, 2012 11:16 am

I'm so confused about if Clinique tests on animals or not. This is a excerpt directly from their website about their views on animal testing:"Clinique Laboratories, LLC. is committed to the elimination of animal testing. We are equally committed to consumer health and safety, and bringing to market products that comply with applicable regulations in every country in which our products are sold.

We do not conduct animal testing on our products or ingredients, nor ask others to test on our behalf, except when required by law. We evaluate our finished products in clinical tests on volunteer panels.

Clinique Laboratories, LLC. fully supports the development and global acceptance of non-animal testing alternatives. To this end, the Company works extensively with the industry at large and the global scientific community to research and fund these alternatives."

Basically it says that they don't conduct animal testing except when required by law. It sounds like Clinique is contridicting themselves because according to the Leaping Bunny website there is no law that requires animal testing:Does the law require animal testing?:NO! Neither the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) nor the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission requires animal testing for cosmetics or household products, respectively. There are sufficient existing safety data as well as in vitro alternatives to make animal testing for these products obsolete. While it is true that virtually every ingredient, even water, has been tested on animals in the past, we can help prevent future animal testing. So which is it does Clinique test on animals or not? Should I trust them?

They say they don't test unless it is required by law. This is an excuse brands make when they don't want to stop testing as there are no laws that require cosmetic companies to test. They are also owned by Estee Lauder known animal testers. Clinique isn't cruelty free. You should avoid it if you care about using cruelty free products. It's products are pretty poor quality too so it's not like you're missing out on anything.

It seems like they don't.

Clinique does not test our products on animals, nor do we ask others to test on our behalf. We use very few animal ingredients; the few that we use are by-products of the U.S. animal food industry. We use them only when their efficacy cannot be duplicated by any other source of ingredients. It is a corporate policy that logos, animal testing for instance, not be displayed on the packaging of our products.

It's products don't test on animals, what they mean is they don't regularly test but if they make some new substance or whatever that's never been used before or has many risks they may have to. It's a rare occurrence, but that doesn't mean they test every lotion on bunnies, just if they ever make some miracle new item never been ventured they want u to know they may have to test

Chinese law does require that products be tested on animals. Many companies such as Clinique (and others owned by Estee Lauder) are now dropping their no animal testing policy in order to enter the Chinese market.
