Testing lipstick

Sir, - On Woman's Hour we were told that every new lipstick preparation must, by law, be tested on 100 animals, and the test continued until 50 of them have died of it.

For pity's sake, aren't there enough tested cosmetics already on the market?

May I suggest that anyone sickened at the testing of cosmetics on animals should not buy any "new formula", or "new season's" or "improved" cosmetics.

Thus, although we cannot help the animals that have already died, we can, if there are enough of us, make further testing of new products unprofitable for the companies concerned.

Surely, as Christians, we cannot behave as if, in the whole universe, we are the only species that matters.
