Does anyone have a compiled list?

Is there always a marking on a product that lists if it is animal tested?

Thanks!

Ask and ye shall receive

it's almost impossible to find products that aren't tested on animals (even POST -ITS!!)- just as pervasive as GMOs in our food are getting to be...

However - there are companies who don't! for make-up try MAC - for hair Paul Mitchell (at least it used to cruelty-free - not sure it's been acquired) you can get non-cruelty soap at your local health food or Whole Foods store.

If you ever want to fight the terrible machine that perpetuates cruelty to animals please feel free to pm me. you can write letters to these people - and certainly - PLEASE - email this list to all your freinds and loved ones. Boycott can be very effective...

here you go :

The following is a list of companies which still test their products on animals. The list is courtesy of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).


Why are these companies included on this "Do Test" list? The following companies manufacture products that ARE tested on animals.

Listed in parentheses are either examples of products manufactured by that company or, if applicable, its parent company. Companies on this list may manufacture individual lines of products without animal testing (e.g., Del Laboratories claims its Naturistics and Natural Glow lines are not animal tested). They have not, however, eliminated animal testing on their entire line of cosmetics and household products. Similarly, companies on this list may make some products, such as pharmaceuticals, that are required by law to be tested on animals. However, the reason for these companies' inclusion is not the required animal testing that they conduct, but rather the animal testing of personal care and household products that is not required by law.

Many of the companies have their internet address and/or email address listed in addition to an 800 number. You're encouraged to write or call these companies and POLITELY tell them that you will not purchase their products as long as they continue testing on animals.

you know roll on and stick deodorants have been shown to clog glands and have dangerous chemicals in them anyway - regardless of who they are tested on...

I found Burt's Bees spray deodorant - a bride whose wedding I was shooting was using it and it smelled so great - I decided to try it - and it is great!

Wow, that list was longer than I thought

I am happy Kiehl's is on it

I love my Kiehl's lipbalm MMMMMM.

I will find some form of deodorant!! I am SO allergic to things, and finally found something that did not make me break out, but if they test on animals I will NOT buy it again!

That list is a great start- it is a PETA list.
I would suggest subscribing for PETA action alerts- they will keep you up on the companines that do and the ones that no longer do.
Peta consumer info

Also, look for the universal 'bunny' seal that states no animal testing, and the companies that also avoid animal ingredients usually state so right there too.

Many MANY companies are not on that list that test on animals and/or use hidden animal ingredients.

Example: My sister gave me some YUMMMMMMY smelling Philosophy brand shampoo/body wash. There is no bunny on the label I notice so I go to their website. They state that (and this is the big booger double talk of cruel companies ) "Our FINISHED product is not tested on animals...BUT our various ingredients are..." OK, no more Philosophy products for me!

I have been researching and can not believe what I am seeing and reading. I have given up most meat as the cruelty to animals is unbleieveable. It is time that cosmetic company's stop using animals to test their products on. I am now searching for companies that do just this and do not have any chemicals or anything that is natural in them.

Have you tried Lush?  They make deodorants, not antiperspirants.  I find they work better than the natural/cruelty free things you find in drug stores - and I live in the Sweaty South.  I haven't been able to test them through a summer yet but I'm planning to try.  Lush is often left off of cruelty-free lists and here's a summery as to why:

 

http://www.fightinganimaltesting.com/the-lush-campaign/different-testing-policies/the-lush-policy/

 

I find it's easier to keep a mental (or written) list of brands I CAN use, than to keep track of all the ones I can't. 

 

Burt's Bees is does not animal test but they are owned by Clorox.  Clorox does animal testing when required by law.  I guess it's a YMMV kind of thing.
