You seriously think that l'oreal is a good company? What kind of reply do you think you will get if you ask them about commissioning animal testing to third parties, which is what they actually do? We are talking about a multi-million industry with a huge amount of consumers, do you really believe they won't do anything they can to avoid having law suits brought upon them, because of adverse reactions caused by their produts? The cosmetics (final products) may eventually not be tested, but the ingredients they use have been severally tested (they refer to it as "safety tests").
They continue to commission test on animals, therefore they ARE MORALLY CO-RESPONSIBLE for animal testing, which is downright the same and EQUALLY CONDEMNABLE. They also sell in China (where it is required that they allow authorities to perform tests on animals) so, again, moral co-responsibility. If we, as consumers, choose to be against animal testing then we need to understand to what extent our attitude and our actions need to go. And it implies not falling for fancy writting, being able to read in between the lines and understanding what these companies are about. And yes, it also implies abdicating some of your favourite stuff. But take it this way, by doing it you are also getting the possibility to discover new products and companies that have a true ethical drive.
