I in no way, shape or form what to cause an argument about vivisection, products which test on animals, etc.

I'd just like to put a website up here, for anyone who is interested in finding out whether or not their beauty products do/do not test on animals, or if they wanted to find some that don't.

So here goes....

search.caringconsumer.com/

I hope you find this interesting, insightful etc.

http://www.gocrueltyfree.org/       I wonder how many models and MUA    use cruelty free cosmetics ?    Cruel animal tested cosmetics are still commonplace in the UK  but the good news is there is plenty of alternatives available.

A large amount of animals are still used in cruel tests for non essential products in the UK  which has been exposed in the media this weekend by The  BUAV.

Would be interested what models and MUA thoughts are on avoiding  animal tested cosmetics.

It's not just the products you have to check, but also some of the ingredients within those products.  Good post, well done!

Yes some products are not tested on animals but could have animal ingredients included.

It's appauling how many products are tested in the way they do. I've just looked to find much of our household shopping is P&G stuff. Worse thing is that there aren't many good alternatives to things like fairy liquid, bold. Because P&G own the alternative brand too. Stuff that get's used every day. Worse, the alternatives if any are just as bad. None of em have labels on saying they are tested on animals, which in my view should be law.

Good link. Does anyone know the current situation for L'oreal? I was trying to find this out the other way but couldn't find a definitive answer.

Own supermarket branded stuff is not only cheaper, but 80% of them are cruelty free, you just have to know where to look

I'm a vegetarian of 4 and a half years now. I know a lot of products which aren't and what are. Obviously, i ONLY use products which aren't tested on animals. I have always been against animal treating, it's not right and i think the dirty pervs in prison should be the ones that products get tested on. Anyways, funny enough ASDA are the best ones for non animal tested products, as they are too against it. Any of their OWN brand (either it be make-up, shampoo, spray or whatever else - it's not tested on animals.) are fantastic, cheap and 9/10 better value than a well known product
