I could pull apart every point in your post to demonstrate why you are incorrect or misled. Is there any value in doing so ? (ie are you willing to enter a scientific debate, and be willing to alter your opinion when presented with compelling science ?)
You did not give an opinion, you quoted from the L'Oreal website. I answered your questions.
Please check the previous posts. This was the OP made that comment, not me.

"Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight." ~Albert Schweitzer
Reasonably well written article, but suffers from slight bias and cherry picking data to make points. I also struggle to trust articles written by people with no clinical or preclinical research experience (according to their backgrounds).
I totally agree with this point, but it leads me to question how better to utilise animals for research purposes, rather than throw the baby out with the bath water. The contributions of animal research to modern medicine is undeniable, however it cannot be stated that errors have not been made.
A lot of medical animal testing (especially historic testing) was the only available testing and not doing it would had caused millions of human deaths and illnesses.But, currently there appears to be a lot of multiple testing of very similar products by different companies because new drugs are very big money makers.
But the other extreme of animal testing, testing cosmetics and other unneeded items seems wrong on so many levels.
We will always need animals for testing, but the nearer that gets to zero, the happier I will be.
However, drugs with even minor chemical differences can have dramatically different biological effects, hence any new chemical structure being planned for clinical development needs to go through rigorous appropriate testing.
