I did the lunabar survey, but honestly I think the fructis samples ask WAY too many questions - your date of birth, etc - those are things that can too easily be used for identity theft if you ask me! ;-)



Thanks for the link!

Man, I hate lemon zest. That is one laclustre pledge-tastic flavour if you ask me.

Yeah, I didn't like them requiring me to give them my phone number, birthdate etc. When they asked for a urine sample, I was out of there!

Lemon isn't my favorite Luna either, but is tolerable. I like the one I can't remember the name of best, lol, guess that wasn't a help.

I signed up for the Luna Bar one. I don't care for lemon that much, but I've heard a lot of people on here talking about them, and I've never tried one, so here's my chance! Thanks!

You know me, I'm never one to pass up a freebie. Especially if the words luna and bar are involved

My thoughts exactly! Animal testing never bothered me until my mom's dog was stolen most likely by a lab. Now I detest any company who tests on animals.

I signed up for the Luna Bar a while back, and I received it last week. It was a lil' bitty sample bar, not a full size one. It was gone in two bites. I know it's a freebie, but geez!

I called Garnier and spoke to a sales person who told me that they absolutely did not test on animals.

Loreal is listed on PeTA's list of "Companies That DO Test On Animals".

Labs don't "steal" dogs and use them for testing. Think about it logically, if you run a multi million dollar corporation are you going to send a couple of your nerd techs out to someone's neighbor hood to dognap dogs?..

Maybe Loreal tests on animals but the Garnier division does not....

Plus the PETA lists are only updated so often, and sometimes blacklisted companies change their policies.... I'd try to get a written statement.

PETA actively campaigned against L'Oreal

for some time due to its use of animals for product testing. Eventually,

L'Oreal signed PETA's Statement of Assurance in 1993, declaring an end

to all animal tests.



Rumors later led us to question whether L'Oreal had truly renounced

animal tests on ingredients. As L'Oreal would not clarify this issue

for us, we put a notation on our published lists of companies that do

not test on animals. Up until the fall of 2000, no documentation had

come to light that indicated that L'Oreal was conducting animal tests,

so the company remained on our "don't test" list (with a notation so

readers would be fully informed and could make their own decisions).



In November 2000 we were provided with evidence that L'Oreal has

requested animal-test data on at least one ingredient from an ingredient

supplier, as well as other L'Oreal statements in which it confirms only

that it does not test finished products on animals, with no mention of

ingredient testing. It also came to our attention that an animal rights

group in England, Naturewatch, had started a L'Oreal campaign because of

the possible testing of ingredients on animals.



After twice faxing the company regarding these documents, we received no

response. While we have no definitive evidence that L'Oreal is indeed

testing ingredients, its silence coupled with the information we have

lead us to believe that L'Oreal is probably not cruelty-free.



We therefore decided to remove L'Oreal and all of its companies

(Garnier, Lancome, Matrix Essentials, Maybelline, Ralph Lauren

Fragrances and Redken) from our cruelty-free lists. L'Oreal has been

moved the "Do Test" list.
