a fluffy bunnyIt’s surprising that there are still a lot of cosmetic companies out there either using animal by-products or testing on animals. If that’s a concern for you, then you’ll be interested to know what brands don’t test on animals. The following are some beauty brands that are extremely popular and which don’t use animal testing:

  • The Body Shop
  • Bobbi Brown
  • Chanel
  • Decleor
  • Dermalogica
  • Estee Lauder
  • Avon
  • Clinique
  • MAC
  • Hard Candy
  • Lush
  • Nivea
  • Origins
  • Clarins
  • Almay
  • Revlon
  • Prescriptives
  • Smashbox
  • Stila
  • Urban Decay

But the following do:

  • Clairol (Aussie, Daily Defense, Herbal Essences)
  • Ponds
  • Vaseline
  • Rimmel
  • Sally Hansen
  • Neutrogena
  • ROC
  • Oil of Olay
  • Pantene
  • Dove
  • Cover Girl
  • Maybelline
  • L’Oreal
  • Max Factor
  • N.Y.C

Food for thought. I’ll be revising some of my beauty favourites, I think. Exhaustive lists of many, many more companies that do and don’t use animal testing can be found on the caringconsumer.com website.
