I'm curious about this. A lot of those listed give no indication on their packaging that their products are not tested on animals.

Pantene products don't (though, I don't use them, haven't for years), I don't think Clinique products do either. In fact aside from The Body Shop and Lush, I can only think of the British-owned Marks and Spencer that really advertize themselves as ethical brands (and indicate so on their products) where I live, and the former two are quite expensive when taking into account the quality of most of their products. (Suffice to say I wasn't too impressed with the solid shampoos and TBS has good body butters and maybe fragrances, but that's more or less it for me).

A number of other brands I've seen in regular drugstores with really brightly colored packaging ( are so "flower-power" looking, I don't even have to check on the back to find out that they 'test on friends, not animals' (though, who is to say their friends, aren't indeed pets, lol).

One would think a 'not tested on animals' label would always be a good way to boost sales, even if isnt an issue for all customers.

I'm really disappointed to see that Covergirl isn't on this list. And I just bought some products of theirs earlier! Darn. Wish I'd seen this posting earlier!

Just another to add to the list...

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics.

They are cruelty free and vegan products. They even have vegan makeup brushes. Their lip tars are AMAZING. And I am currently in the process of trying out their new tinted moisturiser. They have loose pigment shadows as well.

Thank you for posting this! It's nice to know what brands are animal-friendly. I'm also relieved that I never used animal tested cosmetics! Kudos to you for spreading the word!

I used to be a vegetarian till I became dangerously skinny. I am an animal lover. BIG TIME! And you have a good mind! I admire your personality and animal testing is bad. I also don't like to eat eggs because if you had left it alone a cute little BABY would have found its way into the world. I will consider using these products. Thank you for your post!

A few other brands that don't test on animals are the Yes To Brands, Burt's Bees, LA Colors, Nyx, Zoya, and Tarte. Although be aware that some Burt's Bees products contain beeswax so they aren't vegan. Ecotools also sells great, cruelty free makeup brushes. You can even get Burt's Bees and Yes To products at most Target stores and Nyx and Tarte makeup at Ulta stores.

Also, some of the brands listed now test on animals like MAC (owned by Estee Lauder that tests), Estee Lauder, Revlon, Avon, The Body Shop (owned by L'Oreal which tests), Urban Decay, Almay, Bobbi Brown (Estee Lauder), Donna Karan (Estee Lauder), and Redken (L'Oreal). For complete lists of companies that do and don't test has a list. You can even sort by the type of item your looking for.
