Avon Disputes PETA's Animal-Testing Allegations

March 13, 2012: 02:10 AM EST
Following a lawsuit that alleges that Avon, Estee Lauder, and Mary Kay “purposely defrauded consumers by falsely claiming that their products were ‘cruelty free’ while undertaking animal testing in order to sell their products in China and reap hundreds of millions of dollars in Chinese sales”, Avon defended its position. The company claimed that for over twenty years it has been committed to not testing on animals ‘except where required by local law’ and that that some governments require the company to perform additional product safety tests.
