Dave Navarro Rocks the Cruelty-Free Look

Posted by 3 years ago | Permalink | Comments (81)

Appearing naked, with bleeding eyes, musician Dave Navarro’s new PETA ad is pretty dark, even for someone known for his edgy sense of style.

He might look a bit gory here, but by lending his face to PETA’s campaign against animal testing, the Jane’s Addiction guitarist is actually showing his compassionate side once more.

Navarro was appalled to learn about the hundreds of thousands of animals worldwide who are poisoned, blinded and killed each year in tests for the cosmetics industry. “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”, he says. “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 cruellest things done in the name of vanity.”

So what’s Navarro’s advice for stopping this cruelty? Only buy cosmetics made by companies that refuse to make animals pay the price for their products. And if you want to do more, please take a moment to e-mail the European Commission asking that it ensure that all animal-tested cosmetics are banned in Europe without delay.

    Surely we have tested everything by now? The answer is yes… why are companies STILL testing the SAME products over and over again on defenceless animals? Are they going to be wearing make-up?

    Stop. It. Now.

    • Amanda Johnson commented on January 14, 2013 at 2:00 pm

      Unfortunately it’s got to do with red tape, I think, and if someone is harmed by these products they can’t sue because the product has been tested and deemed safe for humans. Dr Ray Greek has tried to show that using animals is inconclusive and he’s not an animal lover. He also points out that to use human subjects requires too much paper work and regulations. I say use people like Jimmy Saville (pity he’s dead in a way), they are the people we should be experimenting on. And I agree with you. They have covered every skin type, what’s the point anymore? Breaks my heart.

    Shame on you, its a disgrace!

  • heather crooke commented on January 9, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    its evil !!!

  • janet Theaker commented on January 9, 2013 at 12:48 pm

    There is no justification for this, and for the scientists doing the experimenting, how the hell can they can sleep at night?. This is way beyond my understanding. No wonder these scientist have to hide what they do otherwise they would live very short lives on the run from animal activists. It should be stopped now as there is no justification for it.

  • Kristen Collins commented on January 9, 2013 at 4:47 pm

    It needs to be stopped now!!!

  • Angie Elmore commented on January 9, 2013 at 5:19 pm

  • Emily commented on January 12, 2013 at 8:51 am

    Animal testing is cruel, sick and wrong. It needs to stop! Glad celebrity’s feel the same way and are getting involved.

  • CC commented on January 14, 2013 at 12:35 pm

    BAN animal testing everywhere. It is cruel and futile!

  • Beverley Jones commented on January 14, 2013 at 12:35 pm

    People who wear this make up will still be ugly…..

  • christine maunder commented on January 14, 2013 at 12:36 pm

    if u want to test test them on yourselves yoy have a choice they dont

  • Gillian Young commented on January 14, 2013 at 12:37 pm

    I have never agreed with animal testing on animals was horrified when younger when I found out that they do …stopped wearing make-up …avoided anything that had to do with animal cruelty…..testing is a form of legal cruelty and shame on them that do it, why by now do firms not share information or use natural ingredients so this archaic justified blatant cruelty stops.

  • Andrea commented on January 14, 2013 at 12:40 pm

    Please stop animal testing!!

  • Claire Hooper Young commented on January 14, 2013 at 12:43 pm

    STOP the testing now! How the hell can you live with yourselves it’s totally unnecessary. STOP STOP STOP STOP!

  • stephanie stanley commented on January 14, 2013 at 12:43 pm

    Ban all testing on animals now! There is no need for this

  • Mia Murillo commented on January 14, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    Stop this cruelty and lighten your brutality footprint. This is both unnecessary and unacceptable to sane and civilised human beings. This repulsive evil of our time must end!

  • Holly Witton commented on January 14, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    Cruelty at its worse, defenceless animals that can’t even explain the excruciating pain they suffer at the hands of heartless humans!

  • gloria percy commented on January 14, 2013 at 12:48 pm

    MORE than atrocious.

    Test on the scientists.

    • gloria percy commented on January 14, 2013 at 12:51 pm

      I stopped using nearly all cosmetics decades ago and always look for products NOT tested on animals, Co-oP products. Plus washing powders, Asda.

  • Elodie Bosco commented on January 14, 2013 at 12:51 pm

    stop this now! no excuses anymore for cosmetics! test on useless humans, we have far too many!!!!!

  • Carol Sprinks commented on January 14, 2013 at 12:51 pm

    It’s discusting and needs to be stopped

    Discusting needs to be stopped now

  • Dot Pleydell commented on January 14, 2013 at 12:52 pm

    Don’t make animals suffer for humans vanity

  • Barbara commented on January 14, 2013 at 12:56 pm

    if people want to wear makuo they should be prpared to have it tested on them and not inocent animals

  • Christine Andrews commented on January 14, 2013 at 12:58 pm

    Cruelty at its worse, defenceless animals that can’t even explain the excruciating pain they suffer at the hands of heartless humans! All for stupid human vanity!stop this now! no excuses anymore for cosmetics! test on useless humans, we have far too many!!!!!

  • Gwen Palmer commented on January 14, 2013 at 1:03 pm

    I cannot believe in this day and age animals are cruely tested for anything let alone something like make up. Don’t get me wrong I love my make up but make sure I use brands that are animal friendly. Can’t see how testing on animals has any bearing on results for human use. Time to step up to the mark and ban all animal testing.

  • Gemma commented on January 14, 2013 at 1:03 pm

    HUMANS use these products so HUMANS should have them tested on themselves.
    How these scientists can do this day in and day out sickens me to the depths of my stomach!
    We’ve come up with so many amazing incredible medicines and cures it’s a damn disgrace we are still in the dark ages of testing on animals.
    SHAME ON YOU!

  • Therese Kearton commented on January 14, 2013 at 1:15 pm

    There is no justification for experimenting on animals – for any reason whatsoever. Time and again it has been demonstrated that what works on them does not necessarily work on humans. Why not do the testing od paedophiles instead?

  • trudi raven commented on January 14, 2013 at 1:19 pm

    Test them on humans, if they want to use them. Lush don’t test on animals so why should any one else

  • Naomi Tregoning commented on January 14, 2013 at 1:33 pm

    Enough is enough. Please stop testing on animals NOW!!

  • Caroline Denison commented on January 14, 2013 at 1:43 pm

    Testing on animals for anything is horrific! Whether it be medicines or cosmetics! There are enough paesos,murderers/child murderers in prison. Test on the,but leave the animals alone!!

  • Camille Le Roes commented on January 14, 2013 at 1:44 pm

    Testing on animals is cruel and futile. Animal testing isn’t reliable. It cannot be justified and is an anachronism. Animals are NOT goods/resources we can dispose of as we wish, they are living sentient creatures, just like us. We have been given the ability to think and to choose between good and evil, why choose the evil path?

  • Jaci Beckerley-Martin commented on January 14, 2013 at 1:59 pm

    It is time to draw a line under animal testing. We are in the 21st century now, not the Middle Ages – can we start behaving like the advanced race we so like to think we are?

  • Jackie Dogan commented on January 14, 2013 at 2:02 pm

    Why in this day and age are you so inhumane? Every living thing deserves a natural life. What is being done is cruel and barbaric!! How can these evil people sleep at night?

  • doreen brooks commented on January 14, 2013 at 2:33 pm

    I refuse to wear make up, why should I pay to have the ‘slap’ on my face at the cost of animals’ lives and all in the name of profit? This testing is outdated and should be stopped NOW worldwide! All my life I fail (intelligently) to see the point of testing a product on an animal when the animal will not be using it. The ingredients have already been tested, so if someone is prepared to where this stuff why not test them on humans! These animals have done nothing to deserve this inhuman treatment. Their only crime was to be in the wrong place at the wrong time to end up in some stinking lab.

  • Glynn & Janet turner commented on January 14, 2013 at 2:34 pm

    It’s time these acts of cruelty were stopped once and for all…… Human vanity does not & should not come about by the despicable acts of torture on innocent animals …. ALL animal testing should be abolished …….

  • Harry Taylor commented on January 14, 2013 at 2:40 pm

    Unnecessary suffering to innocent animals makes me sick……. I’m sure there are more humane ways to test cosmetics.please get it stopped now!

  • anne watkins commented on January 14, 2013 at 2:51 pm

    time to stop these cruel experiments on innocent animals and find an alternative,especially when its not proven that they even work STOP IT NOW

  • Lynda Ramsey commented on January 14, 2013 at 2:52 pm

    STop this cruelty NOW!!!!!

  • simone commented on January 14, 2013 at 3:08 pm

    This abomination MUST stop!!!!!!

  • Eco Bittern commented on January 14, 2013 at 4:08 pm

    I hope that animal cruelty is stopped!

  • SANDRA SHEPPARD commented on January 14, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    Just how do you people justify continually repeating unethical cruel experiments on animals in what is tantamount to animal death camps. You already know the results of putting shampoo in any animals eyes and force monkeys to chain smoke. So give me one good reason for continuing to do it day after day. You are no better than those that did it in the concentration camps of Germany during the second world war.

  • rosemarie crosby commented on January 14, 2013 at 4:20 pm

    I thought it had stopped , how people can still be doing these cruel tests I don’t understand. I will certainly check out before I buy make up.

  • Alix Freeman commented on January 14, 2013 at 4:30 pm

    PLEASE STOP ANIMAL TESTING NOW…IT IS NO LONGER NECESSARY…CAN WE NOT TAKE THE LEAD AND SHOW THE WORLD THAT THIS COUNTRY NO LONGER SUPPORTS THIS TYPE OF CRUELTY!!!!

  • sheila taylor commented on January 14, 2013 at 4:38 pm

    The Cosmetics industry should be ashamed of themselves, there is no need to test on amimals in this day and age, we have the tecnology to do it without animals.
    There are plenty of cosmetics on the market that don’t use animals, so the others should take a leaf out of their books and get with the 21st Century.

  • Anne Nielsen commented on January 14, 2013 at 4:53 pm

    Animal testing is disgusting!! Ban it NOW!!

  • Helen Thomas commented on January 14, 2013 at 5:06 pm

    Who died and made the Cosmetic Companies think they have the right to test on animals who have no choice in the matter? IT’S CRUEL AND INHUMANE, so stop it now.

  • Diane McQuillan commented on January 14, 2013 at 5:08 pm

    There is no need to test on animals, plenty of companies do not test anymore! In fact animal testing on drugs has caused deaths and vital drugs delayed due to this barbaric practice!

  • Barbara Roberts-Hornby commented on January 14, 2013 at 5:15 pm

    Unrealistic and cruel.

  • sally peake commented on January 14, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    how can anyone hurt innocent animals ,watch them in so much pain,and still sleep at night ???one word (why) xx

  • sally peake commented on January 14, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    why???

  • Elizabeth Drayton commented on January 14, 2013 at 5:47 pm

    stop testing on animals; it’s so cruel. Haven’t we got enough cosmetics? No? then let the people who wear the stuff be tested. After all, we still have to make sure it’s safe for people so test on them.

  • ANNA MAIETTA commented on January 14, 2013 at 6:13 pm

    stop it now , now, cruel and barbaric. stop it ban it worlwide.

  • Catherine Keohane-Johnson commented on January 14, 2013 at 6:21 pm

    Worldwide ban required on this now. There is absolutely no reason to torture poor animals for vanity’s sake. We have enough on the market now, so no need for any more.

  • christine hutt commented on January 14, 2013 at 6:22 pm

    No animal should be tortured it’s BARBARIC. There is no reason to test cosmetics on these poor creatures!!

  • Fred Nye commented on January 14, 2013 at 6:38 pm

    They do it for the money,always have,always will,simple as that.If they had a spark of humanity in them ,it would stop.

  • Brenda commented on January 14, 2013 at 7:04 pm

    Please stop testing products on defenceless animals

  • gill bleasdale commented on January 14, 2013 at 7:13 pm

    This needs to stop. This is barbaric. Help end it now. no animal should be treated like this. They dont have voices , we need to be their voice. Please lets help these innocent animals now x

    glad to add my name to this pertition

  • Sonia commented on January 15, 2013 at 10:11 am

    I can’t believe that animal testing is still carried out in the 21st century – surely there is enough knowledge of cosmetic ingredients/components to negate the need for any further testing? Please end the suffering of these poor animals now; as previously stated, we must speak on their behalf – hopefully if enough of us do, our voices will become a shout and we will be heard.

  • Angela Hallwood commented on January 15, 2013 at 10:31 am

    Please make animal testing illegal.

  • Michelle O'Malley commented on January 15, 2013 at 10:47 am

    Make animal testing illegal, why can’t these products be tested on people?

  • Muriel Gibson commented on January 15, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    No more torture on poor innocent creatures for cosmetic purposes

  • cathy richardson commented on January 15, 2013 at 4:59 pm

    this day and age and people still use animals to test on!!! Its totally outrageous. And sickening. Animals are innocent. And these heartless pricks think its ok to use animals. Of course….. Animals don’t have feeling or experience pain do they… Regards.com. The people who test on animals should be tested on themselfs to experience what that poor animal goes through. But those people are nasty evil gutless swines. Imagine them in a room with us guys…. Lol. That would knock the smile of their faces

  • Catherine Marechal commented on January 15, 2013 at 6:02 pm

    Please make animal testing illegal.

    • Catherine Marechal commented on January 15, 2013 at 6:05 pm

      arrêtez de tester des produits sur animaux, prenez les violeurs d’enfants !! ils n’ont olus rien à perdre, les animaux eux ont tout leur amour et leur calin à donner à des êtres humains sans aucune restriction de couleur de peau, de poids etc….

  • Truda Taylor commented on January 16, 2013 at 11:31 am
