Shocking Human Display Protests Against Animal Testing
Humane Society International and Lush Cosmetics’ Hard-hitting Protest
A young woman was restrained, force-fed and injected with cosmetics in a high street shop window as part of a hard-hitting protest against animal testing.
Hundreds of shocked shoppers watched Jacqueline Traide be tortured in a bid to raise awareness and end the practice of animal experimentation.
The 24-year-old endured 10 hours of experiments, which included having her hair shaved and irritants squirted in her eyes, as part of a worldwide campaign by Lush Cosmetics and The Humane Society.
The disturbing stunt took place in Lush’s Regent Street store, one of the UK’s busiest shopping streets.
Jacqueline appeared genuinely terrified as she was pinned down on a bench and had her mouth stretched open with two metal hooks while a man in a white coat force-fed her until she choked and gagged.
The artist was also injected with numerous needles, had her skin braised and lotions and creams smeared across her face.
Passers-by were horrified to see Jacqueline, a social sculpture student at Oxford Brookes University, forced to have a section of her head shaved.
The gruesome spectacle aimed to highlight the cruelty inflicted on animals during cosmetic laboratory tests and raise awareness that animal testing is still a common practice.
The Humane Society International and Lush Cosmetics have joined forces to launch the largest-ever global campaign to end animal testing for cosmetics.
The campaign launched to coincide with World Week for Animals in Laboratories, is being rolled out simultaneously in over 700 Lush Ltd shops across forty-seven countries including the United States, Canada, India, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea and Russia.
Lush campaign manager Tamsin Omond said:
“The ironic thing is that if it was a beagle in the window and we were doing all these things to it, we’d have the police and RSPCA here in minutes.
“But somewhere in the world, this kind of thing is happening to an animal every few seconds on average.
“The difference is, it’s normally hidden. We need to remind people it is still going on.”

Here are some of my opinions, I do my own research into testing – I simply want to help the animals in any way.
Humans could be tested on more, slowly and in teensy ways. The public and prisoners can have tests as long as they want to, and consent to it, they can be rewarded well and do so only at a small risk. Pay people well to be tested on instead of putting money into expensive animal maintenance.
There seems to be a lot of cancer about in humans, a tester has said that it becomes a matter of ‘mouse cancer’ to deal with, not human cancer. Animal tests are inaccurate in order to account as human ones.
It is better to change the name of ‘animal test’, to ‘animal abuse’.
Computers in animation sounds amazing and it must be that the animal’s senses and everything are recorded on a ‘computer human, or animal’ – so a lot can be on the screen. Computer wizards need to be working on this 24/7, that is as we speak, creating new technology and brainstorming. Make the world’s best robot that can be tested on and have feelings!
I can’t respect all old experiments, I mean it seems that Pavlov’s dog was involved in a mean animal testing experiment in order to implant something into its jaw.
Imagine if we all caught a mutating disease from the animals as they may be kept in dirty laboratories. I have seen testers not wearing gloves when handling the animals, so they touch the animals then the ingredients, and so on.
I know that they are going to stop animal testing in cosmetics, it is now a question of when. Food and drug testing on animals is hopefully next. The public want this stopped effective, immediately and then the new ideas for alternative methods will come.
They inject awful human diseases into animals, animals don’t get these kind of diseases.
I am annoyed by so many chemicals, I only want natural ingredients which is best for the future.
Thank you, your website is awesome.
Pretty bad stuff going on there! Time to put a stop to it!
Wow… I am not a believer in animal testing either.. I know their has to be a better way..
