PAUL MITCHELL RECEIVES PETA PLAUDITS FOR PULLING OUT OF CHINESE MARKET

Hair-Care Company Refuses to Allow Chinese Government to Test Its Products on Animals –London – PETA is praising hair-care giant John Paul Mitchell Systems for pulling out of China after being informed that the company would have to pay for animal tests in order to continue selling its products there. Rather than being part of a market where animal tests are required, Paul Mitchell CEO and cofounder John Paul DeJoria put sales in China on hold last year and has now told PETA’s US affiliate that Paul Mitchell will not sell products in that country in order to remain committed to the company’s cruelty-free policy.
