International Association Against Painful Experiments on Animals

The International Association Against Painful Experiments on Animals (IAAPEA) was founded in 1969 and is against all experiments, animal testing, vivisection and procedures performed on laboratory animals. We are the only organization concerned solely with animal testing which has consultative status with the United Nations. The IAAPEA established WORLD DAY FOR LABORATORY ANIMALS in 1979, which is now a focal point for Actions Worldwide. IAAPEAs groundbreaking undercover investigations expose what the animal researchers try to hide. Newspapers, magazines, politicians, animal organisations and TV stations all over the world are using our unique animal testing pictures which the public were not meant to see. The IAAPEA also fund medical research without animal experiments into cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other illnesses. The IAAPEA are not campaigning for larger laboratory cages, but empty cages.

Cosmetic Animal Testing Experiments Pictures

The laboratory animal cosmetic testing pictures expose the secret world of experimenting on live animals to test cosmetics, lipsticks, toiletries, shampoos, skincare, deodorants, colourants, sun care, make up, mascara and other beauty products.

Pictures of cruel animal cosmetic testing on rabbits, dogs, cats, mice, guinea pigs, rats and monkeys are shown on this unique cosmetic animal testing experimentation image gallery.

These graphic, iconic animal cosmetic testing pictures were taken undercover in cosmetic research laboratories by Brian Gunn, Secretary General of the International Association Against Painful Experiments on Animals.

Through the lens of his camera Brian Gunn has exposed the ugly side of the beauty business.


AlHafiz B. A. Masri was the first Sunni Imam of the Shah Jehan Mosque in Woking when it was the Islamic center of Europe.

The question of the use of animals in science cannot be studied in isolation. To appreciate its full implications, it must be addressed against the backdrop of the similarities and differences that exist between humans and the rest of the ani¬mated world. How we understand these similarities and differences indeed, how we answer the question at hand is greatly influenced by our response to two more fundamental questions:

(i) Can mans claim to being the apex of value in the world be justified? (ii) If a distinctively religious justification of this claim is offered, what are its moral implications for how humans may treat other forms of life, animals in particular?

For the Islamic approach to these questions, we have three sources of guidance. The original source is the Quran, the holy book revealed to the prophet Muhammad during a period of 22 years, from 610 to 632 C.E. The second source is Hadith or tradition in English, an instructional corollary to the Quran based on the sayings and deeds of the Prophet. Hadith is considered in Islamic jurisprudence as an explanatory appendix to the Quranic law. In case these two sources do not lay down a clearcut statute in a particular case, the Muslim jurists (muftis) refer to the legal assertions based on precedent, precedents set mainly during the period of the first four caliphs (from 632 to 656 C.E.). Only in that comparatively rare case when there is no precedent does the mufti issue a new judicial decree, and even here it must be consonant with the timehonored customary law that is based on general Muslim practices. To approach the distinctively Islamic answer to the questions before us thus requires that we refer to each of the authoritative sources mentioned to the Quran, to Hadith, and to customary law. The main tenets of this last source will be summarized further on. To begin with, we will confine our attention to the teachings of the Quran and Hadith.
