Great news! Following thousands of your e-mails and talks with PETA, Urban Decay has announced that it won’t sell its products in China until non-animal testing methods are accepted there. We are delighted that Urban Decay is staying true to its ethic of producing top-quality products without harming animals—even though it means giving up a market share in China—and we’re pleased to return the company to our list of cruelty-free companies! The following was originally published on June 7: After years of touting its “no animal testing” policy, Urban Decay has let down caring consumers everywhere.
The company opted to start selling its products in China even though Chinese law requires that cosmetics companies pay for many of their products to be tested on animals in Chinese laboratories before they can be marketed in that country. For each test required by the Chinese government, superior non-animal methods are available. PETA has jump-started the effort for acceptance of non-animal tests by awarding a grant to the Institute for In Vitro Sciences, which is working with scientists and regulatory bodies to replace animal tests in China.
Thanks to the work of these PETA-funded scientists, the Chinese government is now poised to accept its first-ever non-animal test for cosmetics ingredients. Urban Decay has long held a spot on PETA’s list of cruelty-free companies and offers an extensive line of vegan makeup, but it has turned its back on animals. Urban Decay could delay its entry into China, but the company is putting profits over principles.

The zoo is going to be a great alternative put if you prefer to obtain animals pictures devoid of owning a trip to safari in summer time. You could acquire their pics inside the secure bench that may be accessible close to the cages. To help make you success in using the photographs of animals that you want, it is possible to observe the following ideas.
Away from a jungle of rain-washed pines and junipers spearing the recent blueness in the Florida sky, ran a small, tawny-haired boy. His bare ft, extending from his overalled legs, crackled against the fallen palmettos. He leaped to the air, flinging his arms towards a flock of white doves circling higher than him.
The list includes companies that make cosmetics, personal-care products, household-cleaning products, and other common household products. In the U.S., no law requires that these types of products be tested on animals, and companies can choose not to sell their products in countries such as China, where tests on animals are required for cosmetics and other products. Companies on this list should be supported for their commitment to manufacturing products without harming any animals.
Companies that aren't on this list should be boycotted until they implement a policy that prohibits animal testing. The list does not include companies that manufacture only products that are required by law to be tested on animals (e.g., pharmaceuticals and garden chemicals). Although PETA is opposed to all animal testing, our quarrel in those instances is less with the individual companies and more with the regulatory agencies that require animal testing.
Nonetheless, it is important to let companies know that it is their responsibility to convince the regulatory agencies that there are better ways to determine product safety. All companies that are included on PETA's cruelty-free list have signed PETA's statement of assurance or submitted a statement verifying that neither they nor their ingredient suppliers conduct, commission, or pay for any tests on animals for ingredients, formulations, or finished products.
