i came across this in a myspace bulletin so i'm not sure what the source is. although some of these seem strange (how can you test ice cream or underwear on animals?!) they are all apparently connected to some form of animal cruelty.

please read through the list, i think you'll be surprised at how many of the products you regularly buy are involved with these companies!! i know i was!!!

    I try my best not to buy things tested on animals.
    Maybe they should test it on the molesters and killers on death row.

    It really ticks me off. The only reason I use Oil of Olay is because it doesn't have any animal products in it, and I'm allergic to glycerine so I can't use that. What the hell! Why bother putting out a nice product, if you're still torturing and killing animals to get it?
  • Azra Kalla Miss Lori 2014/08/17 17:33:11

    Are you sure Oil of Olay products don't have any animal products in it? I have been looking it up and some websites say they do. I can't use cosmetics that contain these products due to religious reasons and I wanted to make sure because I really love Oil of Olay products but don't want to take a risk.

    What are animal experiments for the above products going to prove? They have more scientific ways with better results. I will have to check the products I buy now more carefully.
  • Leethal 2008/04/24 02:37:42

    But it seems weird how they would be testing on certain products as you said
  • lou lou 2008/04/23 20:39:55

    I dont use anything but organic products which do not animal test.
  • sd *TROUBLE* 2008/04/23 20:21:09

    sd *TROUBLE*
    I;m shocked taht so many brands do the animal testing, but not surprised. With the kind of world we live in today, it takes ALOT to surprise or shock me. I definitely will try to boycott as many as these products as possible.

    i use currently at least 7 but in the past i have used more than that.. i genually try to read labels and not put money into their pockets.. i've never seen what these labs do .. BUT IT LOOKS HORRIBLE

  • Magzilla 2008/04/23 19:57:54

    I boycott most companies that test on animals, you added more brands to my list
  • Anjirocks Magzilla 2008/04/23 20:05:41

    i used to always try and buy Body Shop stuff because their whole principle was to be against animal testing. how sad and ironic that they were bought by Loreal a few years ago =(

    can you name some cruelty-free brands that i can try to get?? just if you can think of any right now =D

    i recently signed a petition to encourage the UK government to make it law for companies to state on their packaging whether or not they test on animals, with so many companies you just don't know
  • Magzilla Anjirocks 2008/04/23 20:11:49
    I will list them out once I get home. I think I'll make it a group post.
  • Anjirocks Magzilla 2008/04/23 20:12:42

    summer ♥ † John 3:16 † ♥
    OMg!!! im speechless!!
    these ppl that are in prison for life should b tested on, leave the poor animals alone!!! sorry it sounds bad but thats how i feel.
  • Anjirocks summer ... 2008/04/23 19:00:17
    don't worry, i agree!!!

    and the sad thing is that people wouldn't dream of testing these products on people, not even on the likes of child molesters who have committed the most awful atrocities... yet they don't even think twice about testing them on innocent defenceless animals!!!
  • summer ... Anjirocks 2008/04/23 19:03:20

    I have studied this list before, although it seems much larger now.
    I do my best not to buy products that are tested on animals, I have found alternatives that are quite more expensive, but in the long run avoiding the cheaper products that use and abuse animals is the best way to make a statement....makes me feel better anyway!

    I'm not shocked, but the list is quite a lot bigger than I remember from last time I looked. I think I'll have to keep the list on hand and try not to use any of those products. It's very sad that an animals life means no more than that to some people.

  • Anjirocks Jessa ~COB 2008/04/22 12:44:27
    ah, just checked the box and tampax is part of Proctor & Gamble which is mentioned on the list =( that's a really big company.

    thanks, i'll check that link out
  • Anjirocks 2008/04/22 07:43:36
    I'm shocked!!!
    i am utterly horrified that this is being permitted to continue all in the name of "beauty". and by so many well known brands!!!

    i am so disappointed in all these people for letting the poor animals suffer!!!

    the ones i buy (or used to buy) are

    Boots products (their face wipes are the only ones i've found that don't give me an allergic rash!!!

    Pantene shampoo and conditioner

    Ben & Jerry's (although i don't understand how ice cream manufacturers can have anything to do with animal cruelty?)


    Sure deodorant

    Aquafresh toothpaste!!

    Clean & Clear skin products

    and i'm sure much of my other make up and hair products are involved in animal testing too. how awful that our bathroom cabinets are death traps to these poor animals!!!!

    and if you don't think it's horrific look at the pictures on the question options.
  • DizziNY Anjirocks 2012/01/28 02:22:25
    Ben and Jerry's is owned by Unilever.


    Unilever – This one hurts, as I loved Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, but I won’t buy it anymore. Unilever bought the company in 2000, and a recent article pointed out that the “natural” ingredients in their ice cream may not be anything of the sort. Is this the parent company stepping in to cut costs on ingredients? Who knows. But throw in the fact that their sustainability bragging sheet says that “15% of our global purchases of tea and palm oil (are) from sustainable sources” (that’s not anything to brag about, guys – 15%?) and that they also continue to test on animals, and you can see the widening gap between what they say they care about and what they actually do about it.
