Urban Decay Loses Cruelty-Free Certification

The company recently announced its decision to move into the Chinese market, where animal testing is required.

Cosmetics company Urban Decay has been at the center of controversy in recent weeks following an announcement that it would be expanding to China, which requires that all cosmetics be tested on animals. The choice has prompted outrage among many of the company’s loyal customers, and has cost Urban Decay its Leaping Bunny cruelty-free certification. In a statement on its Facebook page, Urban Decay addressed the controversial policy, telling customers that while the company itself will not be carrying out the tests, the Chinese government likely will. “Animal rights are still very much important to Urban Decay, and our decision was a thoughtful one,” the company insists. Urban Decay’s co-founder Wende Zomnir will be participating in a live chat in coming weeks to field questions about the decision.
