Pamela Anderson Turns Down Axe Body Spray $$$

Written by PETA | April 6, 2007

Pam.jpgThis week, the folks at Unilever—the parent company for Axe Body Spray—learned the hard way that you can’t perform nasty animal experiments for your product and have Pamela Anderson star in your ad campaigns. It’s really one of those “one or the other” situations—both is just greedy. And, of course, it’s worth mentioning that maiming and killing animals when you trawl out a new product is a singularly unpleasant way of carrying on in the first place.

Anyway, here’s the letter that the wonderful Pamela wrote to Unilever asking them to get their heads out of their … um, out of the sand, and move their testing policy into the 21st century. Pamela, I know I’ve said this before, but I love you.

    Actually I just read an article saying that Amanda Bynes is now the new spokesmodel for Vaseline.. Does Peta know about this.. Are they going to mention it to Ms Bynes?

  • Kerry says:

    Well I just read an article that says Amanada Bynes is the new spokesperson and model for the Vaseline line of products.. Somehow I think this kid dosen’t even know they use animals to test their product.. At least I would like to think she dosen’t

    I do not buy Unilever products and wrote to tell them why animal testing and got this reply. I’m trying to read between the lines to see what I’m missing…it sounds like they aren’t doing it except where legally bound by certain countries so they should out of those countries in my opinion. Basically I’m looking for clarification on this letter and couldn’t find another option on the PETA site to do so. Not necessary to forward it to the blog but just need some insight We are pleased to say that Unilever Canada does not test any of its home or personal care products on animals in keeping with an earlier pledge we made to eliminate such testing whenever possible. Unilever Canada is committed to the elimination of animal testing. We are equally committed to consumer and customer health and safety and to the safety of our workforce and the environment. Globally in Unilever nonanimal testing is the rule and animal testing is the exception. Unilever does not undertake animal testing or commission others to do such testing on our behalf unless it is absolutely necessary to meet our health safety and environmental obligations or it is demanded by government regulators or other official bodies. Before any animal testing is carried out our internal control procedures require senior management to certify in writing that there is no other way of proceeding. We do not test finished home or personal care products on animals unless demanded by the regulatory authorities in the few countries where this is the law. In such cases we still try to convince the local authorities to change the law. The safety of Unilever products is assured by rigorous procedures using data from suppliers the results of previous assessments and the most uptodate information from the scientific literature available in the public domain. Our product development relies to a great extent on our ability to predict the safety of products.
