They did not before. Or, at least they supposedly did not, unless they didn’t want to admit that they test “if it’s required by law.” I am very disappointed, because I bought a lot of their stuff last year, under the impression that they didn’t.
For some reason, I thought I read on a cruelty-free shopping guide at one point that they didn’t test, which I usually do with everything, but maybe I didn’t when I decided to believe them. Maybe I just thought their old disclaimer (which did not include the part of it “being required by law”) sounded legitimate or something.
I’m going to be switching to Physician’s Formula. I already replaced the powder I bought from Clinique with one from PF’s, and I think it might possibly be even better :).
Yes Estee Lauder owens Clinque, its their parent company. and EL is now testing in China. So there fore if you buy Clinque some of that money is going into the pockets of the monster who ok’d this.
Here’s a link of who else they own, please avoid buying them from now on! http://elcompanies.com/Pages/Our-Brands.aspx
