Dave Navarro Rocks the Cruelty-Free Look

Appearing naked, with bleeding eyes, musician Dave Navarro’s new PETA ad is pretty dark, even for someone known for his edgy sense of style.

He might look a bit gory here, but by lending his face to PETA’s campaign against animal testing, the Jane’s Addiction guitarist is actually showing his compassionate side once more.

Navarro was appalled to learn about the hundreds of thousands of animals worldwide who are poisoned, blinded and killed each year in tests for the cosmetics industry. “They’re not taking a bunny rabbit and putting mascara on it. They’re injecting a chemical directly into its eye to see what kind of adverse reaction happens to it”, he says. “In many cases, parts of their body are ripped open. They’re all alive, and they’re all aware. It’s torture for the animal—it’s terrifying and painful and probably one of the cruellest things done in the name of vanity.”

So what’s Navarro’s advice for stopping this cruelty? Only buy cosmetics made by companies that refuse to make animals pay the price for their products. And if you want to do more, please take a moment to e-mail the European Commission asking that it ensure that all animal-tested cosmetics are banned in Europe without delay.

    stop testing on animals; it’s so cruel. Haven’t we got enough cosmetics? No? then let the people who wear the stuff be tested. After all, we still have to make sure it’s safe for people so test on them.

  12. avatar Sonia says:

    I can’t believe that animal testing is still carried out in the 21st century – surely there is enough knowledge of cosmetic ingredients/components to negate the need for any further testing? Please end the suffering of these poor animals now; as previously stated, we must speak on their behalf – hopefully if enough of us do, our voices will become a shout and we will be heard.

  13. Please make animal testing illegal.

  14. Make animal testing illegal, why can’t these products be tested on people?

  15. avatar Muriel Gibson says:

  16. avatar cathy richardson says:

    this day and age and people still use animals to test on!!! Its totally outrageous. And sickening. Animals are innocent. And these heartless pricks think its ok to use animals. Of course….. Animals don’t have feeling or experience pain do they… Regards.com. The people who test on animals should be tested on themselfs to experience what that poor animal goes through. But those people are nasty evil gutless swines. Imagine them in a room with us guys…. Lol. That would knock the smile of their faces
