Elizabeth Arden: #ComeClean about Animal Tests

More and more cosmetics companies have stopped using animal tests. But Elizabeth Arden continues to use or pay for outdated test methods that cause animal suffering and fail to protect public health. It’s time for Arden to #ComeClean.

Experimenters shove animals face-first into tubes no larger than their bodies and force them to breathe fragrances. The animals are kept in the tubes four to six hours daily for up to three months while experimenters look for signs of toxicity such as paralysis and death. No painkillers are provided. Arden says it doesn’t perform animal tests, “except in the rare instances in which it’s required by law.” But Arden sells in China and Brazil, countries that frequently and clearly require animal testing for most cosmetics ingredients.

These tests don’t protect humans. In 150 human clinical trials of inflammatory diseases (including asthma, which can be triggered by some fragrances), 100 percent of drugs developed using mice failed.
