Beauty guru Kat Von D has just slammed beauty brand NARS for their statement supporting animal testing, and we're so here for it.
Having someone as influential as Kat to drag your product could be detrimental to the company and reputation, which we couldn't be happier about RN, after they blatantly agreed to go forth with animal testing, just to make more money.
Taking to her Instagram, she posted very graphic images of animal testing, alongside her scathing caption.
"Due to the terrible news we all got this week when@narsissist announced they've decided to start testing their cosmetics on animals, it wouldn't feel right not to say SOMETHING.
"The images that I chose to post on this album are mild in comparison to the typical types of testing that @narsissist will now be implementing on all their products. This unnecessary cruelty is what you will be supporting every time you purchase one of their products [as well as any other company that CHOOSES to test on animals - because it is a choice].
"There are already non-animal tests that give far more accurate results than testing on animals and supporting that horrible billion dollar industry is criminal. Shame on you for hiding behind such a false marketing statement in order to line your pockets, while countless animals suffer.
"Please reconsider selling in China until the animal testing laws change. Until then, I along with many true animal lovers will gladly boycott your products."
It comes after NARS confirmed to their angered fans that yes, to be able to sell in China, they would have to comply with their animal testing laws.
Their statement read:
"We want you to know that we hear you. The global elimination of animal testing needs to happen. We firmly believe that product and ingredient safety can be proven by non-animal methods, but we must comply with the local laws of the markets in which we operate, including in China.
"We have decided to make NARS available in China because we feel it is important to bring our vision of beauty and artistry to fans in the region. NARS does not test on animals or ask others to do so on our behalf, except where required by law. NARS is committed and actively working to advance alternative testing methods.
"We are proud to support the Institute for In Vitro Sciences (IIVS), a globally recognized organization at the forefront of advancing non-animal methods in China and around the world. NARS is hopeful that together, we can work toward a cruelty-free world. For more on the good work IIVS is doing, see: http://bit.ly/2rVjnwV"
