Ricky Gervais Says Animal Testing is 'No Laughing Matter'

English comedian/actor/director Ricky Gervais has recently come out to speak against cosmetic companies by their use of animals in their product testing. The stand-up star along many many animal-rights activists have stood up against notable companies such as Avon and Estee Lauder in their animal testing that exposes them to harsh and toxic chemicals. As the ongoing beauty and cosmetic market continues to grow in China, many big companies are resulting in animal testing to stay competitive.

Animal testing is legal (and a requirement) in China, but many activist groups today such as PETA are fighting to introduce new cruelty-free testing to notable Chinese cosmetic companies.
