John Varvatos Fragrances are produced by Elizabeth Arden, Inc.
Elizabeth Arden, Inc shares your concern about the use of animals in safety testing and is committed to eliminating the need for animal testing. We are equally committed to the health and safety of consumers and to creating products that comply with the laws of all countries where our products are sold. We do not perform any animal tests on our product formulations or ingredients, nor ask others to test on our behalf, except in the rare instances where required by law. These laws apply to every company in the beauty industry that sells products globally, and Elizabeth Arden, like all other global beauty companies, must comply with any applicable local laws.
To avoid the use of tests on animals, our product development team selects raw materials with well-established safety records and uses extensive ingredient databases. Our product safety testing includes the use of non-animal studies and clinical tests on volunteers. We take great pride in our product safety record.
Our ultimate goal is to eliminate the necessity for animal testing globally. We work closely with our industry and the scientific community around the world to actively support our industry’s sharing of scientific data and to support and fund research programs to develop and validate non-animal alternatives for product testing.
We thank you for the opportunity to state our position and hope you will continue to enjoy Elizabeth Arden products with confidence.
