Is there a list somewhere that tells which cosmetics contain foreskins? I've read a few threads here about it, but I'm still confused what brands use it.

Thanks so much!

I think there are two issues, the products that actually use foreskin (probably pretty few products) and the ones that are tested on foreskins even if they dont' contain foreskins.

I don't think there's a comprehensive list but the search function is back up so if you search for cosmetic you'll pull up the old threads.

I didn't know there was a list! Where will I find that?
I know my mother used to manage the office for a company that claimed not to do animal testing (though, I consider embryonic chicken eggs animals) and they tested on foreskins. Back then I just thought it was silly. I was just a kid. Now it really upsets me. I know what companies THEY tested for, but I'd like a more comprehensive list!

Companies I know (or am pretty sure from talking to them) DON'T use or test on foreskins (or animals):

Sensaria
Arbonne
Ecco Bella
Nature's Gate

I'm sure there are more, but those are the one's I've pinned down so far.

Companies that I know use testskin or paid money to help develop it:

Mary Kay
Avon

And I'm sure there are many many many many many more.
