Fake French cosmetics companies test products on Ukrainian refugees, TV story

Anonymous telegram channels are spreading information that French cosmetics companies - Chanel, Lancôme, L'Oréal, Vichy, Cacharel, Garnier - are testing products on Ukrainian refugees. In the video provided by the propagandists, they claim that thanks to this, companies saved more than 30 million euros in six months, because Ukrainian women are paid several times less than French women.

VoxCheck analysts explained that the French media did not publish such a story, because it was simply a fiction of propagandists. For example, this news is not available on the BFM TV website or social networks.

Moreover, these brands - Lancôme, Vichy, Cacharel, Garnier - belong to L'Oréal. The company’s website notes that in order to evaluate the effect of products on the skin, the corporation created a prototype of human skin - reconstructed skin, which makes it possible not to involve either animals or people in testing.
