Animal Testing Company Products!

Before reading this Alex's of Alex's Guides, wishes that everyone could repeat this:

"I will no longer give my hard-earned dollars to companies that to
rture animals and spray their faces with banal products." Below, you will find a fairly comprehensive list of companies that still test their products on animals. If you do not care that some poor animal was tortured for your eye shadow or toothpaste, then feel free to continue to support these companies.

As a consumer, you can help by avoiding their products (e.g.,) in favor of companies that do not test. Believe it or not, that list is actually far more comprehensive than the below list and includes several big names. CHECK IT OUT!"

OMG thank you sooo much. I have to give you 10 out of 10 for this list. This is the most comprehensive guide to the evil baddies I have seen. Correct knowledge too.

I have seen too many sites (PETA included) that lump The Body Shop in with the good guys list, ignoring the evil that is Loreal testing policies. I have a suspicion that many of these list are given backhanders from ppl like Loreal to keep The Body Shop on the good guys list.

I tip my hat to you and bookmark this page. I will be now recommending this site to all my friends unsure of testing polices. A thousand thank-yous for all your hard work and truth finding skills.

This list needs to be updated badly. Many of these names have never been associated with animal testing, like Yves Rocher. They've won numerous awards for their practices. The Body Shop was just bought by L'oreal but they still don't test. Even PETA's list is flawed if you check some of the companies' sites.
