I don't think that's true or half the stuff in boots will have to go!From March of this year it will be illegal for any European country to sell cosmetics that have been tested on animals or contain ingredients that have been tested on animals.
This is great news.

I not sure it's that simple!Cosmetic products (from 2013)
It's been planned for 4 years and is common knowledge.
Also, selling cosmetic products that have been tested on animals has been illegal in this country since the late 1990s - this latest legislation simply ensures that this is extended throughout Europe and to the ingredients used in those products too.
Artdeco is readily available on offer at Beautybay http://www.beautybay.com/artdeco/ or at Chleo in Dublin.the sooner they ban animal testing for cosmetic reasons the better!
I am currently trying to source brands I can buy from to start building my professional kits for when I have completed college and want to do some work in the real world.
As much as I would love to use MAC or Artdeco, i just quite simply refuse to buy from companies who do test on animals... even if they state "only when required by law" or "products not tested" I am not buying a product from them where the ingredients have been tested. So depressing and restricting!
Here is to more of us wishing to use only animal friendly products and encouraging our customers to do the same also
Ok someone misunderstood, there really is no need to be so rude and insulting! Doesn't do much in terms of promoting your brand!ARTDECO IS CRUELTY-FREE company. The cleverly written bumph you refer to is laughingly a poor German to English translation. It isn't hard to tell if you have a smidgen of understanding of the English Language. It couldn't be any clearer as they try to explain the law let alone their own feelings.
Is there a particular reason you want to make unfounded and completely untrue accusations???
We don't need to be on PETA lists or nottested lists as we aren't trying to make political capital to sell products... We are an ethical company without trying to use that as a selling point...
So once again, for the record and despite your highly objectionable and underhanded smear tactic: ARTDECO IS CRUELTY-FREE company

Having said that, thank you for confirming the brand is cruelty free for those who were wanting to know.
Yes I agree completely. But in my opinion, the way you went about correcting it was not very nice or very professional. Especially as the confusion came from something written on your company's website, translation or not.Claiming a brand is cruel to animals when they are not threatens jobs and livelihoods in simple terms.
In terms of promoting our brand, it's ok to metaphorically point a loaded gun and press the trigger in our direction? but it's not ok for us to be both personally offended and very angry about it???
We are heavily involved with animal rights campaigners and a horse/animal sanctuary, imagine if our friends read this and believed it.
Everybody has a responsibility for what they write.
Bit of a strange thread, but it's something i feel quite strongly about.
Does anyone know which brands either test or don't test on animals or how to find out which ones do?
Yeh, if i can garuntee Affinage is Cruelty Free, and certified for it, then i will get it put on my business cards.
I have just read somewhere that they are but i want to find out for definate!
