Animal Testing

Hello All. There is a web site called CaringConsumer dot c that you can check if you are curious about any company's cruelty-free commitment. Perhaps it's part of your beauty buying decision.

RE: Animal Testing

do u know alot on this subject? I have a question maybe u can help me with. Some products will say "this finished product not tested on animals" so I guess that means the ingredients that are used are tested on animals? So in reality they do test on animals, I have seen this on several hair care products.

RE: Animal Testing

Hello jazzy. I'm not an expert on the subject but am trying to learn as I go. I make the same assumption when I see "Finished Product Not Tested on Animals" as I recently noticed on one of my Bath & Body Works lotions. The conclusion being that components of the product are or may be tested on animals. There are many companies that do not test on animals and I will support them.

The last time I was at 'The Body Shop'not to be confused with Bath & Body works,which I always get mixed up..I was told that 'the body shop' does not use any animal testing on any part of their product,but that 'bath & body' does.

RE: Animal Testing

Hello 2468. Yes, that's my understanding too. All of Bath & Body works products may not be tested on animals but if any in a company's line up are, the company cannot be considered Cruelty Free. The Body Shop is pretty above-board on most if not all social issues I believe.

RE: Animal Testing

Just an FYI. I emailed CS to ask about Lancome's animal testing policy and they apologized for not having the information and referred me to Lancome's site. When I have made inquiries about SSC and Dr. Graf they were able to put their fingers on the info. Both of those companies do not do any animal testing. Hmmmm......

RE: Animal Testing

I fefuse to buy any product that I know has been tested on animals, think how painful this has to be for the poor animal involved, breaks my heart.

RE: Animal Testing

You all are correct in thinking because a company states "they" don't do testing or their "finished product" is free from testing, means the ingredients they get from other sources very well does testing, or they would clearly state no animals testing on any ingredient they use in their products. It's the other guys that do the testing, not us-excuse :-& [-x

RE: Animal Testing

This is true IrishSea. I already knew Lancome still tests on animals too - just wanted HSN to know we're awake out here in Consumerland. I'm trying to make sure both Serious Skincare and Dr. Graf's company do not contract out for animal testing either. Just because a company says they don't do the testing doesn't mean they aren't paying someone else to. I'll be needing eyecream soon - need some answers.

RE: Animal Testing

I agree! There's also the Vitamins and Supplements we buy. They contract out from other countries for their sources of ingredients. I called Andrews business and they couldn't or wouldn't tell me their exact sources they buy from. It takes detective work to find out. I know he doesn't put USP on his products. His CS told me some ingredients are USP but they can't put USP if others are not. I'd like to know about the companies from Japan and China where they get and how they test their products before selling them to companies.
