Sadly in today's society animal testing is one of the most common ways of testing beauty products (makeup, toothpaste, shampoo, hair color, mouthwash, and things along those lines. These tests require these products to be put into the animals eyes, injected into their tear ducts, and often times animals are forced to eat or inhale them. These tests are not required by law, and they often produce inaccurate and misleading results—even if a product has blinded an animal, it can still be marketed to you.) Most people agree that this form of animal testing is totally worthless and unexceptable but, they continue using animal tested products. I am a vegan and part of being a vegan is that I do not use any animal tested products. I thought it might be a good idea to post a list of beauty products that are not tested on animals.

Thanks for this, always wanted a list of these products :D

But....beware of The Body Shop, my friend (who is currently studying zoology and a major campaigner against cruelty to animals), told me, while they don't test their products on animals they do test some ingredients :(

Helping animals? - Although the Body Shop maintain that they are against animal testing, they do not always make clear that many of the ingredients in their products have been tested on animals by other companies, causing much pain and suffering to those animals. They accept ingredients tested on animals before 1991, or those tested since then (if they were animal-tested for some purpose other than for cosmetics). There continue to be concerns about the enforcement of their policy. Also, some Body Shop items contain animal products such as gelatine (crushed bone).

Thanks again for taking the time to do this..Karma!

I have a correction to make. For some reason I put the revlon website where it listed Almay.

Almay's website is: almay.com

You could add Paula's Choice to that list (www.paulaschoice.com). On the website there is even a list of their products that contain things like lanolin and beeswax, so you can avoid those if you choose.

I'm reading through the bad list on caringconsumer.com and there are brands listed that are brands of pet foods. Pet foods tested on animals...? How informed is this list?

Found my answer on the good product list:
Most caring consumers would never guess that lonely dogs and cats are confined to tiny, barren laboratory cages for years on end and subjected to horrible experiments in order to test dog and cat food.

To expose this tragedy, PETA conducted a nine-month undercover investigation of a laboratory that performed cruel animal tests for Iams and other major companion-animal food companies. What our investigator uncovered would outrage anyone with a heart:

Lonely dogs driven mad from confinement to barren steel and cement cells
Dogs dumped on cold concrete flooring after having chunks of muscle cut out of their thighs
Experimenters who severed dogs' vocal chords in order to keep them quiet
Sick dogs who were languishing in their cages without veterinary care

These animals suffered so that Iams and other companion-animal food companies could slap "new and improved" labels on their products.


Normally I'm not a fan of PETA. They're a bit too extremist and sometimes border on terrorist, and they don't always research things thoroughly to see if they are widespread or isolated problems or what the facts are behind the issues. Usually it just seems like they want to make some noise about something. I'm looking for information that did NOT come from PETA about this issue before I buy into it entirely... but it's disturbing nonetheless.

Well I dont want to turn this thread into a peta thread but I can assure you that peta is in no way a terrorist organization. By saying that they are borderline terrorist you are comparing them to people who blow up buildings or are suicide bombers I'm a member of peta (as well as several other animal rights groups) so I feel I know a lot more about it than the average person who is not one who has just heard the stereotypes about peta. The fact is those lies about not just peta but other animal rights groups are created by the meat industry, fur industry and yes THE ANIMAL TESTING INDUSTRY.

I dont see as I blame them because if I were doing that stuff to animals for money I would sure as hell do whatever it took to not expose my dirty little secret. I would make up lies and bad mouth these organizations because exposing this stuff makes companies lose money.

Let's face it Animal torture makes a lot of money now a days. It's very sad but its true.

-dd21

ps: Arak perhaps you are thinking of the ALF (animal liberation front). This is not an orginization but a movement that does burn down slaughterhouses and steal animals from test labs and throws buckets of red paint on people who wear fur. A lot of people blame ALF activites on peta because peta is the largest animal rights organization in the world and because the ALF is not a group. I personally am 100% against any illegal activity in the name of animal rights.

Hi, Arak =)

I tend to agree with you in terms of PETA, and I found some information about animal testing on the Humane Society website, and from there, I found a link to the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics.

www.hsus.org . . . is the Humane Society page on the issue.

www.leapingbunny.org is the Coalition site.

Just a couple more sources for you to check out and maybe help you make choices on this issue for yourself =)

Thanks also, to the original poster for bringing up this topic!

My conclusion is that PETA is up to their old tricks again. Surprise, surprise. Yes, the incident in question happened, but not at an IAMS facility. This was a laboratory they contracted to do some outside work. Looking at the official website for the facility, they raise animals for lab tests and conduct a lot of those tests on the premises. Most of the violations cited in the government report involve sheep and pigs rather than dogs and cats. And tests on pet food involve feeding it to the animal and monitoring the animal's overall health and performance over a period of time. It's hard to get accurate data on sick or injured animals, so I would conclude that the animals cited were not probably involved in tests sanctioned by IAMS. Seems to me that the only thing IAMS is really guilty of here is not researching this facility before contracting with them to do work for them and therefore affiliating themselves with this facility. There was mention of at least 20 different, independent labs contracted by IAMS to do testing, and this was the only one in question. PETA has taken the reportings of one person at one site and used that to slander a large corporation. Which exactly the kind of thing that they love to do. So I think it's safe to disregard all that hoopla.

Yes Maybeline does test on animals. I have heard that they did not test on animals for a period of time but currently they do.

agirlinatutu thank you! I noticed I put the wrong link in after It was too late to edit it.

I always check my products to see if they test on animals. It's just really sick. One time I found that something my mom bought said "final product not tested on animals" I immediately threw it out. All the animal testers should be tested on, see if they like it.

Keep in mind that some companies do multiple things under the name of one company. While I do not agree with animal testing under pretty much ANY circumstance (including most biomedical research), companies like Johnson & Johnson will almost definitely test on animals in some facet of their company because they have a big emphasis on biomedical products.

The list I gave was just cosmetics, perfumes, lotions and hair care products. The list dancerjbh4 gave has other things besides what i gave on it that are animal tested. That's most likely why the lists aren't exactly the same.

You asked how school supplies could be tested on animals and how that is possible is that perhaps the dyes in the products are animal tested and chemicals in them could also be tested on animals.

as for how you could test school supplies on animals there's been cases of companies testing ink (don't want to get into major details but they test ink in their eyes...) and yes, my list had some companies that weren't purely cosmetic. and like i mentioned before, if you really want to be 100% sure if a company is cruelty free or not, just call headquarters, check the bottle, or check their website for information. my friend wanted to know about one of her shampoos and so she called headquarters. =]
