TITLEDisagreement surrounding Animal Testing in Cosmetic Industry in the UK. The BodyShop Case Study.CHAPTER 1: INTRODUCTIONOverview of the ResearchCosmetic testing on animals is a kind of animal testing that is use to test the safety aswell as hypoallergenic properties of goods for use by an individual (Berggren and et. al., 2015).In this dissertation, given organisation is The Body Shop which is a British skin care andcosmetics organisation that was introduced by Anita Roddick in 1976. Currently, company hasapproximately 1000 products which it sells in over 3049 franchised and owned stores globally in66 countries. It is a first global and international cosmetic company (Bessems and et. al., 2015).Beside this, the Body Shop cosmetic industry will take the campaign or approaches to the topauthority, the UK, and request a global meeting banning cosmetic product testing on animals.Cosmetic is the most developing industry in the UK, that is widely concern on providinggood or effective products and services to their significant customers in regards to maintain itsbrand image within the mind set of users. Cosmetic Testing on animals is considered as a sort ofanimal testing which is applied to test or analyse the hypoallergenic aspects and safety ofcosmetic products for human body. Animal testing is basically occurs on the full finishedcosmetic items or it may also occurs on the individual ingredients within a formulation onanimals like mice, rabbits and other animals (Braithwaite, 2013).Research Topic“Disagreement surrounding Animal Testing in Cosmetics Industry in the UK. The BodyShop Case Study.”Aim of the research projectMain aim of this dissertation proposal is to identify the influence of disagreementsurrounding Animal Testing and its impact on Cosmetic industry (Doss, 2018). This dissertationhelp in analysing the effect of disagreement surrounding Animal Testing and its direct influenceon Cosmetic industry (Laquieze, Lorencini and Granjeiro, 2015).
Significance of the ResearchThe research taken into consideration is based on the issue of disagreement surroundingAnimal Testing and its potential influence on the Cosmetic Industry (DeMello, 2013). Thepresent area of study is required for each individual to know about the animal testing and itsimpact on the global environment.In this research proposal, one of the main problem isDisagreement surrounding Animal Testing which highly impact on animals and business in adirect manner. For this, research is more essential and significant for the investigator to identifyimpact of cosmetic testing on animal(Hennigs, Karampournioti and Wiedmann, 2016).Inclusion and exclusion CriteriaInclusion criteria for this particular research is different sort of animal testing,environmental influence that are caused due to animal testing, information about organisationthat use animal testing for their products, the causes of animal testing on the environment and theexclusion criteria for this research is failure to adhere to pre-test requirements, infection,evidence of altered training of people etc.CHAPTER 2: RESEARCH OBJECTIVES OR HYPOTHESISResearch AimThis considered to be the most essential part of the research thus it refers as thepredetermined statement which signifies the research issue in the form of clear or concisestatement (Hamschmidt, 2017). The potential aim of this research is "To identify the influenceof disagreement surrounding Animal Testing and its impact on Cosmetic industry". A casestudy on The Body Shop.This is a wide area of study which is basically focuses on describingthe effects of animal testing for analysing the relevancy of cosmetic products. The animal testingis unauthentic in nature and this specified area of study provides wide area of knowledge aboutthe animal testing for the cosmetic products.Research ObjectivesResearch objectives is refers as a clear, concise or declarative statement that gives properdirection to the researcher to investigate the variables in proper manner. Thus research objectiveis more significant and essential aspect for the researcher to accomplish objective and aim ofresearch effectively and systematically. This section is recognised as the essential part ofdissertation that is based on aim of the research. This section is basically categorised among two
parts like dependent or independent variable (DeMello, 2012). The objectives are basicallydirected towards analysing the potential relationship among the variables. The existinginvestigation work is based on the issue of Animal Testing in Cosmetic Industry in the UK andin this objectives are created that clarify the key aspects of the research in appropriate manner.The potential objectives of this research are associated as under:To understand the concept of Animal Testing in Cosmetic industry.To analysis the issue faced by animals in testing of cosmetic products on them.To make decision of Disagreement surrounding Animal Testing in cosmetic industry orto The Body Shop.Research QuestionsResearch question is defined as a short, specific or debatable statement that centre theoverall research (Basketter and et. al., 2012). This section is directly interconnected with the aimand objectives of the research. This section is effective in execution of literature review throughthe perspective of various writers or authors. There are some important questions made byinvestigator according to the research objectives which are described as under:What is the concept of Animal Testing in Cosmetic industry?What type of issue faced by animals in testing of cosmetic products on them?How decision of Disagreement surrounding Animal Testing in cosmetic industry or toBody Shop are effected on them?CHAPTER 3:LITERATURE REVIEWLiterature is identify as a type of information source. There are different kind of literaturesource which is used by the researcher in order to collect accurate and relevant amount ofinformation from the respondents. Beside this, books, journals and questionnaire are identified asa main source of literature review. In this different number of authors are give their opinion andpoint of view about the research topic (Mamayko, Boyko and Merkulova, 2016). It is alsoreferred as the main and essential factor of research. This section involves views of variousauthors and scholars, an investigator analysis the view and opinion of writers in order to analysisa term and to know more about it in detail and in-depth manner. All this support an investigatorin drawing legal and efficient conclusion.This is the most essential part of the investigation work
as in this appropriate theoretical framework is created through the accumulation of data fromsecondary sources.The present exploration work is based on the study of analysing the influence ofdisagreement surrounding Animal Testing and its impact on Cosmetic industry. This is a widearea of research and has a huge scope for investigator or learner in their personal as well asprofessional life. In this proper theoretical framework is created on examine the concept ofAnimal Testing in Cosmetic industry, the issues faced by animals in testing of cosmetic productson them and the disagreement of animal testing by the company of Body Shop. In thisinformations are gathered for the purpose of addressing the research issue in appropriate manner.Concept of Animal Testing in Cosmetic industry.According to the Murnaghan, (2018), animal testing is also known as animal research,experimentation. It is used to support an animal who are faced issue and impact of cosmeticproducts produced by cosmetic industry. An animal test is refer a scientific test or experiment inwhich an animal is forced or effected to experience something that is possible to cause themdistress, suffering, pain or lasting harm. Animal testing is an effective term which is refers toprocedures worked on living animals for aim of investigation into basic diseases and biology.As per the Curtin kayla, 2108, This animal testing are in practices from the Aristotle, theytest cosmetic and biomedical on animal before using those cosmetic on human being. Majority ofpeople avoid using those product which are still test upon animals and some sees this is a goodpractices. These tests are conducted to understand the way at which proportion human bodyreacts and to asses the safety as well as effectiveness upon human. The companies who markettheir product overseas are doing animal testing of their cosmetic products. There is an alternativeway to test cosmetic products rather than testing those products on animals. If customer get toknow that these products are tested upon animals then public relation will effect and it will alsodestroy the customer loyalty (Ashton and et. al., 2014). The different types of animal tests tosafeguard the ingredients and formulas in cosmetic are:Guinea pig maximization test:-This test measure the sensitivity of ingredients andformulas or involve some type of injections which are injected in skin or in body.Draize test:-It is identify as an effective procedures applied to find out dermal irritation.In this albino rabbits are used because they have more sensitive skin or body thanhumans. Along with this, semi occlusive patches of the trial material are located on skin
and data point are taken at twenty four and seventy two hours. This determines dermalirritation from which human's might suffers, these are tested on rabbit who have moresensitive skin than human (Urde, Baumgarth and Merrilees, 2013). The test reading istaken between 24 hours to 72 hours and then according to result skin of rabbit is gradedwhether it's erythema and edema.Eye irritancy test:-This procedures defines any eye irritation, as they put the drop inrabbit eye and evaluate it for 24 hours and up-to 7 days as to analyse whether it's safe forhuman eye or not. Such type of test happens if the cosmetic product gets into the eyes.This test involves albino rabbit’s animal again and compounds or elements are put intothe eyes. In this evaluation take place at twenty four, forty eighth, seventy two hours andup to seven days.Type of issue faced by animals in testing of cosmetic products on them.According to Shatzman Celia, 2018, The product development to packaging tomarketing, has a long journey and numerous steps are taken to secure the products. The animalsare still suffering and died due to shampoo testing, eyeliners, creams, mascara and othercosmetic products. These are tested by dropping into throats, eye or on skins of rabbit, mice,guinea pig, rats before they are killed. Animals are suffered endlessly and it's not needed to testthose products on animals before trying on human beings. Numerous cosmetic manufacturingingredients declared or has been deemed safe to use. The alternatives to test cosmetic productsare tissue and cell testing as these provide more reliable result rather than animal testing ofproducts. As more than 100 millions animals are died due to cosmetic testing on them andmillions are suffered due to skin issues. The animals used to faced painful tests for thedemonstration that product is effective and safe for human being. The numerous laboratories forbiology lessons, medical training, curiosity-driven experimentation, chemical testing, drug &food testing and cosmetic testing people are used animals and they brutality harmed. The testingon animals to human has proven misleading and problematic in many ways (Hartung and et. al.,2011). As these are tested on their skins due to which they faced a lot pain and their hairs arealso shaved just to test the sensitivity of products on animals skins. Animals eyes are burnedbrutality just to test eyeliners and eyeshadow by dropping some amount. To stop these issues it'sessential to adopt alternative to test and most of the ingredients are considered very safe, so noneed to test cosmetics every time.
Each year approximately 100 million animals namely mice, frogs, cats, dogs, mice,hamsters, fish, birds, monkey, pigs etc. are killed in United State. Laboratories for medicaltraining, biology lessons, curiosity-driven experimentation, and food, chemical, drug andcosmetic testing. Before animal’s deaths, few are strained to inhale toxic fumes and many otherare immobilized or floating in restraints devices for some hours. Some animals have gap drilledinto their skulls and some other have their skin injured off. Such type of testing also impact onanimals by crushing its spinal codes. As per the point of view ofBessems and et. al., (2015)Cosmetic test on animal is also impact on its body and can cause considerable distress and painincluding swollen eyes, blindness, sore bleeding skin, organ damage, birth defects, internalbleeding, convulsions and death. At the end of test, pain relief is not given to animals, so it cancause as their death, normally by neck-breaking, asphyxiation or decapitation. Thus testing ofcosmetic products on animal is highly damage their body parts and kill their life.Decision of Disagreement surrounding Animal Testing in cosmetic industry or to The BodyShop are effected on them.According to Liou stephanie, 2010, The animal like rats and mice shared the samesimilarities in genetic and physiological like human, if animal testing is going on, then it directlyinfluences the living of animals. It's important for government to make decisions in accordanceto disagree the surroundings of animals testing (Hartung, 2011). The numerous petitions aresigned and campaigns are launched to stop the testing cosmetics on animals. The body shopcompany have signed the petition related top set the animal testing and save them by usingalternative ways which much cheaper, easier and quicker to responds. Through alternativemethods no one is get harmed. The companies should take decisions in terms to stop testingproducts on animals. The products which company manufactured should use reliable andauthentic products which don't need testing. The government had launched so many campaignswhich are related to ban animal testing in cosmetic labs. The first company get their petition toUN with having a lot people in their side who are animal friendly and finally they take theircampaign to different countries as to ensure the law adopted and enforce everywhere. Theanimal testing is get banned in EU since five year to protect the animals from harmful activities.From this millions of animals get died and faced numerous painful activities just to teat aparticular product. The alternatives are identifies best way to protect animals through harmfulactivities. The effective decisions are taken to implement strategic decisions for campaign. The
