Ricky Gervais Supports Cruelty-Free Cosmetic Companies

Former cruelty-free companies are now succumbing to the animal testing requirements in China.

Actor and comedian Ricky Gervais is the latest famous face behind the “Be Cruelty-Free” campaign, which supports the abolishment of animal testing. Gervais says, “It makes me particularly angry that some previously cruelty-free companies are abandoning their principles and returning to animal testing in order to profit from the Chinese market … ethical principles shouldn’t be up for sale.” The funnyman acknowledges and commends Urban Decay’s recent choice to abstain from animal testing, despite its retracted decision to sell to China. China is one of the few countries to require animal testing on all cosmetic products.
