Clarification: Coty Inc. Information

For those that read my post regarding the issue of Coty Inc. testing on animals, it may have appeared that I was stating for a fact that they do not test on animals, because I stupidly titled it "Coty Inc. does not test on animals.'' In reality, I was quoting the letter that I received when I inquired with Coty Inc. customer service. Coty Inc. does admit to testing on animals, however:

Our research and development team has pioneered safety tests and alternative testing methods in order to eliminate the need for animal testing.  However, there may be rare occurrences when a government or regulatory agency may indicate to the Cosmetic Industry that an animal study is necessary, where no validated alternative exists, to ensure consumer protection for a component of our products.  In such cases, the need for testing is carefully examined by our Industry and if the test must be performed, it is strictly controlled. 

If you haven't already, I encourage you to read the entire response letter here. I apologize for any confusion this may have caused, as I in NO way wanted to misrepresent the facts!
