Dear Mister William and James Lever (Owners of Unilever)

We believe that animal testing is a very important issue. We also believe that you are in a position to take action to address this issue. My issue is animal testing and testing cosmetics on animals. This has already been banned in the UK and the EU. In Australia we continue to import products tested on animals even though such procedures are painful, cruel and unnecessary. By allowing these products to be sold in our country we are effectively supporting the animal testing of cosmetics.

Animals testing is torture and very cruel. Animals deserve to live as long as they can and not be torture and killed in the process. Most of the time animal testing doesn’t even benefit human. 92% of experimental drugs that are safe and effective in animals fail in human clinical trials because they are too dangerous or don’t work. So we are actually just torturing animals and we are not even getting any results. According to the Humane Society, registration of a single pesticide requires more than 50 experiments and the use of as many as 12,000 animals. Using this many animals can endanger the species that are being over- experimented on.
Each year millions of animals suffer extreme pain, suffering and eventual death while undergoing testing of raw ingredients and final products such as make-up, shaving cream, toothpaste and shampoos. By stopping animal testing, millions of animal will be able to live in peace. So why don’t we use different experiment like pyro genicity tests. A pyro genicity tests is a process in which a person's or an embryo’s DNA is isolated and tested for the presence of specific genes. We could also use human skin equivalent like Epiderm. There are different ways to test products without torturing or killing innocent animals. Plus experimenting on human related trials there will probably be more accurate results.

Your company will be judged on its ability to remove itself from this activity and find other ways to test products. The eyes of the world are watching! Obviously it is time that action is taken to make this issue not an issue anymore. We ask that you can stop animal testing and make sure it is not done again. This will be greatly appreciated. In addition, by stopping animals testing you will show the world that the Unilever does not accept animal testing, there is a better way.

Yours sincerely,
Hayden Grieve

How this will help

I requested this action because I believe animals are suffering and being tortured and then slowing dying of extreme burn, poisoning and body damage.

Mr William and James Lever since you are the owners of Unilever you are in a position to influence a population of people to stop animal testing and to let people know what products have been animal tested.
