The Physicians Committee has drafted a shareholder resolution to address the discrepancies in Ardenís animal testing policy. We ask that shareholders on the Board of Elizabeth Arden Inc. encourage the company to increase the transparency around the use of animals in product testing by making their animal use publically available on their website. This would include the species, numbers, and specific tests conducted with the animals used. We also ask that Arden join IIVS ICARAA to ensure that they really are working towards developing nonanimal test methods. See the Shareholder Resolution section for more information.

Experimenters shove animals face-first into tubes no larger than their bodies and force them to breathe fragrances. The animals are kept in the tubes four to six hours daily for up to three months while experimenters look for signs of toxicity such as paralysis and death.

No painkillers are provided.

Arden says it doesnít perform animal tests, ďexcept in the rare instances in which itís required by law.Ē But Arden sells in China and Brazil, countries that frequently and clearly require animal testing for most cosmetics ingredients.

These tests donít protect humans. In 150 human clinical trials of inflammatory diseases (including asthma, which can be triggered by some fragrances), 100 percent of drugs developed using mice failed.
