Cosmetic companies can pull the wool over your eyes by omitting to disclose the animal testing policy of their parent company. This means that many consumers are unwittingly still funding cruel and outdated animal testing.
Take Superdrug as an example. Their parent company (AS Watson) is owned by Hutchison Whampoa – a multinational conglomerate based in Hong Kong that funds a 500 square meter animal testing facility through their Chi-Med subsidiary.
Every Superdrug product you buy puts money into the hands of this corporation and, indirectly, those purchases can help fund animal testing. There are many other companies in a similar situation. To find out more, please see the Naturewatch Compassionate Shopping Guide, part of their Spring Offer!
