Unless it has to do with electronics. I can say the same that if you have any MAC[seriously lol what a pun!
Consider the professional direction you want to take and tailor your social media to express that. I stopped going to M. Our founders, Frank Toskan and Frank Angelo saw the need for a line that would inspire and perform at the highest levels. The paid summer internship program for enrolled college students lasts 10 weeks in our corporate offices. Mac cosmetics are of very good quality. Also, inlcuded are news stories urging greater private sector action and legal protections against workplace
Just saying. I recommend that you email estee lauder and OTHER companies that are trying to sell in China they have a much larger consumer base there, they are able to sell so much more there than they can in the US. It happens.
The problem is China, not most of the companies. Sign the petition please! Spread awareness about it. Great article. Like many, the issue I have is not whether the mac products I purchased here in the USA were tested an animals, its whether the company as a whole is testing when required in other places. I was about to restock the MAC Studio Tech foundation and MAC Studio Fix powder when a girlfriend of mine mentioned MAC was no longer cruelty-free because they are selling in China which requires cosmetics to be tested on animals before being allowed on the market in China.
I was gobsmacked. I thought it was a cruel joke. Oh gosh, I am so disappointed with MAC. Having done that, I am now stuck wondering how to replace my long-standing MAC foundation and powder. They were so awesome for my makeup and I have no idea where to start to find the same kind of products that are cruelty-free.
I also want to commend you on your awesome website. I have bookmarked it and will be sure to refer to it often.
It is so hard for me to find cruelty free products. MAC was the only thing that I can physically go and try before purchasing. At least now I know they are not cruelty free. I have now thrown the rest of my MAC in the bin, and am going to be trying some Urban Decay instead, which I know to be cruelty-free. Laut verschiedenen Beauty Blogs wie z. Thank you so much for sharing this information with us!
This is not acceptable at all! So now all the products I had from MAC is is the trash! I edit a cruelty free beauty product website Venus Loves Virgo and thought I would add my two cents.
I recently found out MAC went back to animal testing and was so mad. I actually never really liked them MAC that much because of the high price and the same boring colors they would reissue every season. Plus other brands have better less expensive stuff. I occasionally receive products for review or as gifts and someone sent me some MAC Extra Dimension products which I will not review or swatch. Most of my members know not to send me animal tested products but sometimes people send me tings anyway.
What confused me was the label on back that said Made In Italy. So, they are not just manufacturing in China?
Are some of the items cruelty free? In any case, I no longer buy MAC and will not until they change the policy back to cruelty free.
Sometimes I wonder if they were ever truly cruelty free. What was even more hurtful to me was finding out Smashbox is no longer cruelty free! That pissed me off! Peta recently notified supporters that Mary Kay and Avon are no longer cruelty free either. China market may be the same reason MAC is now contributing to the cruelty too?!
I believe that access to the consumer market in China is the reason for the change with MAC, and nearly all other Estee Lauder brands as well. Thank you for this. I will be adding the disclaimer you had posted to my post. I hope Mac starts adapting to the new technology that is out there. Greed changes integrity, honesty……..
Where you able to return your recent purchases? I really hope so. MAC, you got it all wrong. You are on my black list now. I guess in China there are laws that require it and apparently the market there is large enough to be worth the change to them. Thank you so much for sharing this information!
Just to clarify.. Yeah, I knew that MAC being all vegan was always a rumor. Thank you for this post! None of the information was from PETA. I find it shocking that people make statements like this when PETA is able to provide information that benefits consumers so they can make educated ethical decisions. Not sure what contribution you have ever made to the cosmetics industry or animals for that matter?? How selfish of us as humans to not care about suffering for the sake of beauty. Also the author never said anything about supporting PETA she only referenced it..
I think that the lists from PETA are a great resource. Especially for those just starting out on a cruelty free or vegan lifestyle or those who want a quick way to check on things. I have so many mac products. I will simply take them all back to mac for recycling and will never use them again. They are going to hear from me. I guess from now on I will only use smaller companies. I also find their prices a LOT lower than companies like MAC that have an advertising budget and the quality is every bit as good, often better.
Clare, etc. I thought it would be tough to find product replacements of an equivalent caliber, but it has been the opposite — the quality is excellent and the costs are much less. My only caveat would be to do your research if you are exploring a brand that is hitherto unknown to you, because just as there are shady larger companies, there are also some shady indie companies. Ok I am really confused because as far as I knew from my discussions with the company this has been their policy for at least a few years, and it is a policy adopted by all companies in the Estee Lauder Companies group.
Nevertheless, China sucks.
It shocks me that in this day and age a country can demand that for a product to be sold there, it is required to go through animal testing. So stupid. So insane. Makes me sick. This puts a huge kink in my new found love of the MAC brand.
Even just a couple of months ago the last time I had emailed MAC until a couple of weeks ago they had a no animal testing at any point and no use of animal tested ingredients stance. So, here in the US at least, this is very recent. Because this is a recent change, MAC could just pull their product from whatever country is requiring the testing and go back to selling where it was sold before.
Or it could mean they recently added some kind of ingredient that is required to be tested on animals in the countries they already sell in, in which case they could replace that ingredient with something else. Unfortunately the almighty dollar rules over ethics. Selling their products in a coutry with a population over one billion is a great way to like their pockets. There are alternatives however. However it is more cost effective to produce and sell in China so that is what these companies have opted to do.
