Cosmetics company Juice Beauty received the Courage in Commerce Award from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals after it cut retail ties with the Chinese market due to the country’s laws that require animal testing. “PETA is proud to recognize Juice Beauty for ensuring that no animals anywhere in the world are harmed for the company’s fantastic products,” says PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo.
