Kicking animal testing out of the house: Cosmetics and Toiletries

Posted: 22 April 2008. Updated: 13 August 2012

This list is based on the policy statements of the companies concerned. It is not intended to be a definitive list of all the products available, but is a quick and easy guide to which products are NOT TESTED on animals.

Manufacturers

These are available in a range of shops – supermarkets, chemists, department stores and online. Thanks to our successful campaigns, the
testing on animals of cosmetics and toiletries has been banned in the UK for ten years, and is being phased out throughout Europe. Most European
testing has been halted, but some experiments continue in France and
Spain, and of course, tests continue in the USA, so be wary of products from these countries. Ensure that you buy ‘not animal tested’ products, for example:

Note: The Body Shop
One of the pioneers promoting non-animal testing and still features large “Against Animal Testing” in some shops. However, in 2006 Body Shop was taken over by L’Oreal – a move condemned in the media by the NAVS. Whilst Body Shop products are “Not Tested on Animals”, L’Oreal is still using animals.
