Animal Testing

I’ll write another post later on, on my feelings about animal testing and why it’s wrong. Here’s something else though.

It’s easy to criticise it, and many find themselves doing it and then going out to buy products tested on animals. If you think it’s wrong but find it hard/expensive/too time consuming to look for and buy products that are against animal testing, that’s fine. But if you’re vocal about the issue and turn around and endorse this treatment, that’s when it’s hypocritical and wrong.

So to clear the slate a bit between these groups – because anti-animal testing campaigners can be vicious and no one deserves that kind of treatment – here’s a list of companies that test on animals.

If you see a product that says ‘Against Animal Testing’, that’s pretty much your clue. This is just a list a list of those who do. I’ll update this as ethical policies are revised, they go into liquidation, bought over etc etc.
