Like a previous post, which can be found here about the no need for animal testing, I suggested St. Ives and other companies that they own, as well. Simple enough, seeing that logo means the product is not cruelty-free, similar to the Proctor & Gamble Company which I will cover later on. Ives use to be well known for it’s great products that don’t contain animal ingredients (most) and don’t test on animals (sadly do now…) and others who share the same love for these products may not even be aware what they are now supporting. With that being said, don’t forget that it is okay to use up the products by these companies that you bought unknowing of their cruel animal testing practices. An animal was tested on for that exact product; don’t make the animal suffer for no reason at all! The least you can do is use it and then be more careful. Ives, that does the testing for them, still contributing to animal testing. That is why I highly suggest you check the labels every so often because like St. Ives, you never know what company will decide that money is more important to them than ethics. To find out more companies that do not use animal testing, you can either go to PETA’s site to search for companies, or Global Animal’s , to name a few, or download a free app(s) for your device below: Cruelty-Free, for cruelty free companies, & Animal-Free, for those secret, derived ingredients.

Our philosophy is the combination of the best of two worlds: organic ingredients and medical effectiveness.
But beauty comes at a price and I’m not talking about the damage to your purse. It’s no secret that most make-up brands have a history bloodied by animal testing. The organization has brought the plight of countless animals to the public’s attention and has made many brands re-evaluate their approach to ensuring the safety of their products. Some brands don’t test their products on animals and don’t use ingredients that have been tested on animals either, but they are owned by a company that tests other brands in their range on animals. The Body Shop built its reputation on its animal-friendly credo. If you knew one thing about The Body Shop it was that it was 100 percent free of animal testing. So while The Body Shop maintains its cruelty-free image, it’s no longer credible. Editor’s Note: We at My Beauty Bunny believe that although a cruelty-free brand owned by a non-cruelty-free corporation is not ideal, it DOES allow the cruelty-free products to reach a wider audience (often Target, Wal-Mart and drugstore channels). This is the line of thought followed by PETA, and we agree with it. There are, however, a rising number of brands and companies that fully endorse animal-friendly principles, even down to avoiding ingredients that contain any animal products, such as beeswax, lanolin and elastin. You can find out more about companies that do and don’t test on animals on PETA’s website .

Botulinum toxin (commonly known as botox) is a nerve toxin and one of the most toxic substances known. Botox® is also the brand name for one of several products containing botulinum toxin. The BUAV discovered that one UK laboratory alone is using up to 74,000 mice a year for botox testing. It is an archaic test and one of the cruellest and most controversial animal experiments. What happens to the animals during the test? Most mice in the higher dose categories die during the test. No pain relief is provided for the mice during the test. A number of alternatives to the LD 50 test for botox have been developed. For example the SNAP-25 assay, which is a method that measures the activity of the toxin in a test tube and which has been used by an official UK Government laboratory since 1999. The American botox company Allergan, has developed a cell-based test which does not use any animals. It is valid only for the botox products of Allergan: Botox®, Botox®Cosmetics and Vistabel®. Allergan has managed to develop a cell-based test which does not use animals to test their products, Botox®, Botox®Cosmetics and Vistabel® and is waiting for this test to receive regulatory approval from regulators around the world.

This list is all you need, but if you want to know more about the list and who’s on it and why, read on. The testing of cosmetics and toiletry products on animals has long been banned in the UK, and as of March 2013, the sale of cosmetics whose ingredients have been tested on animals has also been banned across the European Union – a huge step forward. In some countries – China, for example – it is compulsory for any company that sells cosmetics to pay for the products to be tested on animals. This means that some companies that have been cruelty-free for years have turned their backs on their ethical policies and have started testing on animals in order to reach these lucrative developing markets. Companies may be complying with the cosmetics testing ban in Europe, but at the same time, they are selling products in another market that have been tested on animals. By buying cosmetics from companies that are on PETA US’ list , you can be confident that you are supporting only companies that don’t test any products anywhere in the world for any market. Another concern is that companies may be testing ingredients for other purposes – for example, testing chemicals under the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulation. Companies with a real commitment to stopping animal testing go above and beyond the requirements of the law and don’t test any ingredients on animals. For its cruelty-free list, PETA US approves only companies that have the very best policies against animal testing – companies whose policies make a real difference helping to stamp out animal testing. New companies are added to the cruelty-free list all the time. Beware of claims such as “this product is not tested on animals”, which can hide the fact that its ingredients are tested on animals, and “this company does not test on animals”, which may simply mean the company contracts out its testing to other companies. That’s why it’s so important that caring consumers use their purchasing power to support companies that have strong, progressive policies which ban animal testing now and which will continue to prevent it in the future. Of course, other companies may produce products which are entirely free of animal ingredients, and you can find out which ones by checking the labels before buying any product. Thousands of animals suffer and are killed for cosmetics testing around the world every year – and billions are also killed for food.

Decades after modern animal testing practices began, many companies began turning to more humane methods, and offering products not tested on animals. These five brands offer cruelty-free cosmetics and personal care products that are safe, natural, healthy and widely available, making it easy to avoid makeup that's tested on animals. Burt's Bees products are not only entirely free of petrochemicals, sulfates, parabens and phthalates but are never tested on animals. Everyday Minerals creates cosmetics that are organic, vegan, eco-friendly and never tested on animals. None of the products produced by Kiss My Face are tested on animals, and many are vegan.

Though now owned by L'Oreal, a company that does test on animals, The Body Shop maintains that its strict standards against animal testing have not been compromised.
