"Avon Killing" - a PETA campaign poster from 1989
In 2012, PETA discovered that Avon, Mary Kay and Estee Lauder had resumed animal testing, after all three companies had each been cruelty-free for over twenty years. This bombshell was one of the top 10 animal rights stories of 2012. The other nine stories include Lennox, Bill & Lou, and the President of the United States.
