Companies that Test on Animals

Vegans don’t use products that are tested on animals. There are SO many companies that don’t use cruel and outdated methods these days that there’s really no excuse to support companies who continue to needlessly torture animals.

At the time of writing this blog post, the following companies TEST on animals. Please avoid buying their products. And please always double check, just in case their policy has changed.

    According to PETA, you should add Avon, Estee Lauder and Mary Kay to that list. I’ve stopped buying from all companies on this list thanks to you 🙂

    (just added them! thanks for the reminder & for your compassion, Stella! xoxo)

    where did you get the Mary Kay info from? My sister is a rep for Mary Kay and I told her she said Mary Kay doesn’t test on animals, so I was wondering if I could get the info or products that are being tested to solve this battle of animal cruilty and makeup wearing issue 🙂 thanks for your help.

    (Hi Samantha! Apparently Mary Kay tests on animals in China and that’s why they’ve been bumped off of the cruelty~free list. Animals in China are just as important (and feel pain just as much) as animals in the U.S. Here’s more information: http://tiny.cc/2tww8 Hopefully these companies will have a change of heart soon!)

    How about a list of companies in categories that don’t test on animals so we know which ones to support, please.

    (Hi Susie! thanks for your compassion! there’s a tab for “Cruelty~Free Companies” at the top of the page, as well as in a comment above. Thankfully, there are lots of companies to choose from!)
