Today (29th August), an item was posted on london24.com titled ‘West End actress joins fight on animal testing cruelty’.

‘… London West End actress Jenny Seagrove is urging the public to support a campaign calling for an end to animal testing for cosmetics …

The star, who is currently appearing in Noel Coward’s Volcano at the West End’s Vaudeville Theatre, is backing Four Paws’ Kiss Animal Testing Goodbye campaign.

She speaks out in a video message in support of the campaign, which has been launched by Four Paws to call for an end to animal testing for cosmetics and ensure that next year’s EU ban on the sale of animal-tested cosmetics goes ahead as planned.

Jenny said: “I’m absolutely delighted to support Four Paws and their campaign to Kiss Animal Tested Cosmetics Goodbye. It’s unthinkable that nowadays in the modern society we live in that animals should suffer so much for cosmetics and I beg everyone to join us in kissing goodbye to cruel cosmetics.”

Animal testing for new cosmetics was banned in the EU in March 2009, but many cosmetic ingredients continue to be tested on animals outside the EU and imported for sale. This is also due to be banned in March 2013 but the deadline is under threat.

Four Paws’ laboratory animals expert, Marie-Claire Macintosh, said: “Four paws along with most EU citizens, believes that animal tests for the trivial purpose of cosmetics must end, regardless of alternatives available.

“Any further delay to a full ban could mean many more animals will needlessly suffer as companies will simply conduct animal tests outside the EU and sell their products here. Vital on-going research into alternative methods may also be affected.”
