Animal Issues :: Animal Testing Animal Testing (Miscellaneous) Kao Corporation is still investing in new methods of testing on animals. As recently as April 2008, patents for a new animal model for pigment spots were filed both in Europe, and the United States. This new animal testing method involves grafting human skin onto an animal, that is then subjected to experiments to evaluate skin lightening ingredients and pigment spots. As a company which was commended in 2003 by the Japanese Society of Alternatives to Animal Experiments, we are deeply saddened and quite honestly appalled that Kao Corporation continue to use animals in research, merely to evaluate ingredients destined for skin lightening creams and pigment spots.
