Pierre Fabre não testa os produtos em animais :)

Meninas há tempos enviei um email á Pierre fabre para saber se testavam os produtos em animais, porque gosto muito de todas as marcas deles, em especial a Avene e a Rene Furterer, mas não queria usar sem ter a certeza que os produtos não eram testados em animais.

Aqui fica então a resposta que eles me enviaram:

We
thank you very much for your email. The Laboratories Pierre Fabre
are also greatly concerned about animal testing and in reply we would
like to explain to you our position.

The  Laboratories Pierre Fabre offer to consumers products adapted to their needs, as well as guaranteeing utmost safety.

Our 
main aim is to protect life in all its forms and especially human
life: the pharmaceutical origin of our laboratories is proof.

The 
European  cosmetic  directive  (76/768/CEE amended on March 11th 2003)
obliges  the  manufacturer to use alternative methods available in
order to test the new cosmetic raw materials and finished goods.

Being 
aware of this, we stopped using animal tests many years ago to check
the  security  of our cosmetic products during their creation years ago
and we have set up a programme in 3 parts :

Development  of  substitute  tests  on cell cultures in our skin culture laboratory.

Use   of   different   methods   available  on  the  market  and 
active participation  in the validation programmes set up by official
French and European bodies.

In fact, to test our products and
to ensure for consumers the indispensable security  of  every 
cosmetic  product, we rely essentially on the existing information 
concerning  the  innocuousness  of  the  ingredients used. The
tolerance  of  the  finished goods is then tested by the use of
alternative methods  (methods  in  vitro)  then  tests of clinical
tolerance on healthy volunteers in the respect of laws on the
protection of people consenting to biomedical  research tests. We also
test real product use and efficiency on human beings.

Finally,
each lot of ingredients delivered to our factories is submitted to
very  elaborated  physicochemical and bacteriological controls, in
order to verify  the identity, the purity and the quality of the
ingredients used in the formula.

These  controls  are  equally  done  on  the  finished  goods, guaranteeing protection from any risk of fabrication error.

We  hope  that we have been able to answer your questions as clearly and in as much detail as possible.

Yours sincerely,

Sylvia MULLENS

    Eu por acaso tinha ideia que a Avene testava, mas posso estar enganada lol ou então entretanto deixaram de testar.
