my sis was at a vets, sitting in the waitingroom and flipping through brochures (sp) and there was one that talked about it
I am writing an artikel atm, hope the local newspaper will publish it, because it is horrendous how we are getting misleading information all the time... take as an example, "just white" - it says on their products:
"the finished product has not been tested on animals" that can mean all sorts! peopl just quickly glance at it and think its testing free - when all they say is the finished lot is not tested... what they do before, they dont say.
Asda is the same, it says "Asda is against testing and funds research into alternatives" or something like that.
Which again, makes you think they dont - when all they say is well once we have found alternatives, we might stop...
I will actually ring ASDA consumer helpline and ask them for a straight answer - do they or dont they...
I'm at work at the mo but i will post soon with lists of ok things to use/buy.
I'm vegan so have to check things carefully! Had to make lots of changes from my cruelty free veggie range when i went vegan as now i avoid lanolin, beeswax etc..
Rimmel, Asda, Max Factor all test, Body Shop have always said 'against animal testing' not not tested - a lot of companies get others to do so.Ive personally not used Body shop for several years now. If you ask at say lancome counters they say they dont but they like Body shop are owned by Loreal >
Co op own brand are fine all their cleaning range is fine and toilitries. I believe Clarins are fine and also Origins. Lush are cruelty free too.
There is a company naturewatch who have updated lists and BUAV animal welfare/rights group publish the little cruelty free shopper - lots of good things in there.
Perfume wise i just buy Dolma - natural fragrances and I have had the Next perfume - this says cruelty free on and is approved I'm told. I just love Dolmas range, also Lush Karma.
Will post more when at home - but internet access there is v slow so bear with me!
the most recent Next perfume is called Pink i believe becasue i was thinking about getting some for my daughter in law she is the colour pink mad, I also love Oceanas from the body shop I really hope they dont start testing on animals,
