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
Oscar de la renta
Johnson & Johnson
Sally Beauty Supply
Procter and Gamble
Clean and Clear
Head & Shoulders

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.
