    What brand of make-up do you use? Do you know if they test of animals? Be aware! Let’s all say NO to animal testing!

    I saw a post on Tumblr about animal testing and I got curious. I know it’s an old topic/issue but I feel like it is worth sharing! First thing I did was Google the brand of make-up that I use to check if they test on animals and to my dismay they do! So, starting today, I won’t buy any make-up brand that tests on animals! YOU SHOULD DO THE SAME!

    Here is a list of brands that DO test on animals:

    Bausch & lomb
    Coppertone
    Cover girl
    Oscar de la renta
    Finesse
    Fendi Beauty
    L’Oreal

    Companies That Still Test on Animals (and associated brands):

    I’m so happy that my 2 favorite brands don’t test on animals!

    MARKS AND SPENCER

    We pass the test on animal testing

    At M&S, we know that many of our customers are concerned about the use of animals for testing cosmetic and household products. We’re against animal testing too.

    We don’t test any of our M&S beauty or household products on animals. But we wanted to go further than this. As part of our Plan A commitments, we guarantee that none of the individual ingredients in our beauty or household products is tested on animals either, starting from a fixed cut-off date of January 2006.

    This covers more than 1,200 products and, more importantly, their individual ingredients, from lavender laundry liquid to tea tree face wipes.

    All these products have the stamp of approval from BUAV, (British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection). You’ll see their leaping bunny logo on pack, which means you’ll know that what you’re buying is “animal-friendly.”

    BUAV chief executive Michelle Thew says, “We applaud Marks & Spencer for taking this step to prove its cruelty-free retailer status. The BUAV’s Bunny Logo approval is the global gold standard in cruelty-free cosmetics and household products, so I’m delighted M&S has taken this step to reassure its customers.”

    BODY SHOP:Against Animal Testing

    Against Animal Testing. For Animal Protection.

    We have never, and will never, test our cosmetic products on animals. We also don’t commission others to do it for us. In fact, we campaigned for years to bring about a ban on testing cosmetics on animals. We are among the few companies to comply with the stringent requirements of the internationally recognized Humane Cosmetics Standard.

    We also ensure all our products are suitable for vegetarians and seek out alternative sources of ingredients that do not contribute to the destruction of habitat of endangered animals, or cause animal suffering. We just think it’s what everyone should do.

About

Follow Rissa_hellafyn on Twitter

I’m a 26 year old young professional but a 21 year old at heart! I work in an International Company. I graduated Communication Arts from (Miriam College) an all girl’s Catholic school but my true passion is Interior Design. I’m an only child and have 2 dogs that I adore named Summer and Autumn and I treat them as they were my own babies.

I love reading books and I love writing. I am actually currently writing a book and I’ve been struggling to finish it for 2 years. I blog to pass time at work and to basically just document my life. (Sometimes interesting,sometimes not.)

My other interests include Traveling, Music, Fashion and Hollywood celebrities. I watch E! and TMZ on TV whenever I can. I also follow a couple of online Hollywood bloggers. After the Royal Wedding I also became fascinated with Kate Middleton or should I say, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. I admire her fashion sense. She’s always so classy and elegant. I guess it comes with the title.

This is my blog. Everything posted here is either about me or what interests me. I hope it interests you too.

Thanks for the visit!
