Mary Kay Allows Animal Testing in China

A company’s moral values should not be limited to one country. Mary Kay Cosmetics has successfully done business with over 35 different countries while eliminating animal testing in all but one. By law, China has made it a requirement to test the effects of all health and beauty products on animals before disbursement. “This is a passionate issue for us at Mary Kay,” said Dr. Beth Lange, Mary Kay’s Chief Scientific Officer. “We are deeply committed to the elimination of animal testing.” It is true that, for more than 20 years, Mary Kay has been a global advocate in the commitment to end animal testing. In recent years, Mary Kay has focused most of their efforts in ending animal testing in China. Mary Kay has worked directly with the Chinese government and dermatologists, submitting research and hosting symposiums, with the hopes that China will give in to alternative options. Yet, China is no closer to changing their methods than they were 10 years ago. Enough is enough Mary Kay! You have spent too much time and resources on a country that is obviously not willing to change. If eliminating animal testing is such a “passionate” issue for you, then I challenge you to give China an ultimatum. Either China stops testing Mary Kay products on animals or you stop business with China.
