Companies Who Don't Test on Animals

Since I've been sharing my favorite companies that make natural beauty and health products, I also wanted to share with you a few that don't test on animals. When I think of animal testing, I think of lipstick and eyeshadows on pigs, perfume sprays on chickens, and lotions on cows.

I never understood why companies resort to animal testing when there are focus groups and people who are willing to sign up to test beauty products. It makes me wonder what exactly is in that product that can potentially be so harmful to us, that they would rather use animals?

Some of my favorite products come from these great companies who don't need to resort to animal testing.
  • Aveda
  • Beecology
  • Boscia
  • Burt's Bees
  • Carol's Daughter
  • Conair
  • E.L.F. Cosmetics
I have sensitive skin, and Aveda products have been effective for me. Their plant based shampoos, conditioners, and lotions are not irritating, especially the rosemary mint line.

I'm surprised to see ELF cosmetics as an animal-free testing company. Their products are incredibly affordable ($1 for eyeliners and lipsticks, yes please!), so the argument from companies testing on animals to keep costs down is not acceptable to me.

What are some of your favorite animal cruelty-free and test-free products or companies? Share them with me and I'll include your comments on my next blog post.
