That's a shame. But unfortunately some people who buy and love his products don't care because for them beauty, not the beast, rules.

 

I don't use his stuff.


Speaking of not caring??!! He's the one who doesn't care! It's all about the money.

Re: Peter Thomas Roth Animal Testing

QVC is as bad as he is, we already know it's all about the money for PTR or the products would be made in the states with no animal testing. There will always be cruelty in the world under the guise of protecting people. It seems as long as it doesn't affect you, people don't care if the eyes are burned out of the poor animals head to keep them looking young.

          @judaline , you're so correct.

Everything is always gagging close to being all about money!

 

     And, @blackhole99 , so very explicit of the testing. Everyone should be made to view. 

 

@cbrite , @SilleeMee , @fingerlakesny , 

@blackhole99 , @judaline  ( and anyone reading that is interested- ::

I found  Cruelty- Free Kitty-

& Leaping Bunnies = provides info.

 

 Years ago, EWG was excellent. Scroll down or tag onto another.

Download the Cruelty-Cutter app. It is awesome! You can look up companies and also scan barcodes on products (not just beauty).

Re: Peter Thomas Roth Animal Testing

Is your company animal-cruelty free?

Peter Thomas Roth does not test any of our formulas or raw materials on animals but we believe in total transparency and will not claim that for the following reasons:

1. We cannot be certain that a raw material supplier has not now or at some time in the past tested an ingredient on animals. We do not knowingly purchase ingredients that have been tested on animals and inquire before purchasing ingredients but some staple ingredients that have been used in products for years may have been tested on animals in the past.
2. We do sell our products in China and some other countries that still do test on animals; though it is our understanding that China is moving towards stopping this practice. We are not alone in selling to China; nearly every major cosmetic company sells there. Also to be noted are that many major beauty retailers conduct business there including QVC and Sephora.

 

 

 

this has been posted on his website for a number of years now.

Philosophy products are not cruelty free.  Philosophy is owned by Coty which is not cruelty free.
