testing on animals

In Cliffe Precinct the other week there was a stall about testing on animals.
Although I realize the need to test certain medecines on animals I do not think it morally right to use animals to test products for vanity or greed. I once asked Boots if they tested their cosmetics on animals and they assured me they did not. The people at the Cliffe stall said that although Boots, Body shop do not test on animals they use the products of companies that do. The stall holders told me that M&S and CO-Op do not test on animals at all. Lets all support these 2 brands.

Yes, you are right of course. Far better to test the safety of new cosmetics on the people vain enough to use them. And I'm sure stall holders have an absolutely comprehensive knowledge, based on rigorous and unprejudiced research, of the true background of all the products they recommend.

the stall holders were not selling a product, just trying to bring the truth of the animal testing to the passers by.
I like the idea of vain guinea pigs
