Colgate- Palmolive- o alta companie gigant care isi testeaza produsele pe animale.

Am gasit un studiu despre testearea pe animale a produselor cosmetice, destul de specific scris: “The ugly face of the beauty industry: animal testing”. Pentru o pasta de dinti Colgate au rezultat urmatoarele date:

“ANIMAL TESTING: Colgate-Palmolive

Company conducting the tests: Colgate-Palmolive

Product name: Colgate Sensitive Maximum Strength toothpaste (tested as a
whole product) available in the USA

Date published: 2003

Country test conducted in: USA

Animals: 70 rats

Summary of test: The rats were deliberately bred to have dental problems and
were then infected with bacteria straight into their mouths. Many of the animals
had advanced tooth decay, including holes in their teeth, by the end of the study,
which may have been extremely painful and caused difficulty eating. They then
had toothpaste syringed into their mouths twice a day and were killed after 20
days. Throughout the entire study the rats were denied even the minimal comfort
of bedding in case it became embedded in the holes in their teeth.

!!Neither the rat studies, nor the test-tube studies also conducted, showed any
difference between Colgate Sensitive Maximum Strength and another
commercially-available toothpaste. Even so, the researchers concluded that
Colgate Sensitive Maximum Strength “may be highly effective at inhibiting the
caries process”. This outcome suggests that the animal tests for this new product
provided no new or relevant results.!!

Replacing the animal tests: A battery of standard in vitro (test tube) tests
comparing the new product to commercially available products, followed by
carefully controlled clinical trials, would have been a safe and effective way of
testing new products. Colgate-Palmolive admits that the only reason the animal
tests are done is because they are faster and cheaper, not because they are
necessary before the clinical trials.
This exposes the complete lack of concern
Colgate-Palmolive has about animal suffering and how animal suffering comes
far below profits in its list of priorities.”


Himalaya Dental Cream – Pasta de dinti

Pasta de dinti vegetariana, netetstata pe animale. Ce imi place foarte mult este faptul ca nu este tocmai cea mai naturista,  dar asta inseamna ca nu are gust de pamant, argila, etc, ci are un gust bun  mentolat, chimic, numa bun 😛

Pretul este in jur de 10-12 lei.

“Actiune: Sensibilitatea dentara apare datorita lipsei de protectie, fiind rezultatul actiunilor gingivale. Pasta de dinti Himalaya asigura actiune antibacteriana si antioxidanta, confera intarirea si reducerea inflamatiilor gingiilor, opreste sangerarea acestora, previne durerile, caderea dintilor, controland respiratia urat mirositoare. Intareste gingiile si lupta impotriva microbilor.”
