Jane's Addiction Guitarist Takes Animals' Place in Graphic Anti–Cosmetics Testing Campaign
Angeles -- Dave Navarro is putting a face—and a body—to the hundreds of
thousands of animals worldwide who are poisoned, blinded, and killed every year
in tests for the cosmetics industry. In the edgy new PETA campaign, which was
shot by top celebrity photographer Joseph Cultice, a nude Navarro appears
bleeding from his eyes and from abraded patches of skin on his bare legs and
torso next to the words "Animal Testing Kills: Choose Cruelty-Free."
A high-resolution version of the ad is available here.
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," Navarro stressed in an on-set PETA interview. "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 cruelest things done in the name of vanity."
cosmetics, household cleaners, and other consumer products, rats, mice, guinea
pigs, rabbits, and other animals are force-fed chemicals or have harsh
substances dripped into their eyes or rubbed onto their raw, abraded skin—even
though the results of animal tests are not applicable to humans. While these
tests are required in China and some other countries, they are not required by
law in the U.S. and have been banned in the European Union and Israel.
Fortunately, many companies—including LUSH, Urban Decay, Paul Mitchell Systems,
The Body Shop, Seventh Generation, and more—have signed PETA's statement of
assurance that they use only modern, non-animal methods to test their products
and ingredients. PETA's global list of cruelty-free cosmetics and
household-product companies is available here.
This is Navarro's second ad campaign with PETA. He first posed in PETA's famous
"Ink, Not Mink" series, in which he bared
all but his tattoos to protest the cruel fur industry.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
