Guitarist Dave Navarro has recently agreed to join hands with PETA and help put an end to the practice of testing various cosmetic products on animals.
Hence his agreeing to pose for this add, whose sole purpose is that of convincing people to only buy and use cosmetics that are cruelty-free.
According to Look to the Stars
, Dave Navarro wished to draw attention to the fact that cosmetics companies that are still testing their products on animals do more than just put some make-up on a rabbit or some other lab animals.
“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,” the guitarist said.
Furthermore, “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.”
