Urban Decay has been against animal testing from their inception, but on June 6, 2012 Leaping Bunny has taken away their certification. Their plan is to enter the Chinese market where animal testing is done by the government, thus eliminating their original stance against animal testing.
As a vegan, Urban Decay has been one of the shining lights for the community as a high-quality cosmetics company that we could depend on, but not anymore. Urban Decay's statement they released about China is hypocritical: if they wanted to make change in the country, they would go there and DEMAND their products to not be tested on animals or they would refuse to sell them.
They are going to see a big change: loss in their American market if they allow this animal testing to go on. Please adopt a new stance and make sure your products are NEVER tested on animals, no matter what country you decide to sell to, and ALWAYS stick by this promise that your company was founded on, and we will keep supporting you. Adopt a permanent policy against animal testing and animal cruelty for good!
