BRANDS THAT STILL TEST ON ANIMALS IN 2018


Continuing with the theme of cruelty-free product guides, I also wanted to share a master list of brands/companies that, in 2018, are still testing on animals. Of course, it's all of the most popular, well-known brands because, why wouldn't it be? Obviously I don't know how these companies work and the in-depth information of their production and policies, but I assume it's because testing on animals is faster than using human volunteers, allowing them to pump out products faster. Correct me if I'm wrong, though, because I'm just assuming. Similar to the other guides I posted, I can't take credit for this, as much of this information was found via other bloggers, as well as through Peta and similar organizations (everything will be linked at the end of this post). Like the other guides I've posted, you may see the same brand under more than one category, as they offer multiple types of products (such as makeup, skincare, haircare, etc). These brands include every price range (from drugstore to Sephora to high street), so this isn't a budget specific post. This post also includes only some of the many brands that still test on animals, as (unfortunately) many brands still do and I only included the brands I've personally heard of quite often.

*A note about Burt's Bees, from Cruelty Free Kitty:

As of 2017, Burt's Bees started selling their products in Mainland China, but claimed they didn't have to have their products tested on animals as they only sell "non-special use cosmetics"; however, no cosmetics brand can sell in China without agreeing to potential animal testing of their products. Currently, they claim they are only selling to mainland China online, which allows them to bypass any animal testing. Currently, Burt's Bees is in the grey area in terms of whether or not they are 100% cruelty free.

Burt's Bees Animal Testing and Cruelty Free Status

A note from me:

According to PETA's records (I'm unsure when they were updated), Burt's Bees is cruelty-free.

Burt's Bees

It seems Burt's Bees still has their Leaping Bunny certification as well.

Leaping Bunny: Burt's Bees

Leaping Bunny search: Burt's Bees

Like the other guides I've posted, I will say I do still have/use products from some of these brands, either because I purchased them prior to finding out and want to use the products up (rather than wasting my own money throwing away products), or I haven't yet found a cruelty-free alternative I want to test out. I also want to reiterate that I am not, in any way, trying to push a cruelty-free lifestyle on anyone that might read this. As I said in a previous Instagram Wellness Wednesday post, I am just at a point in my life where I want to try and do better for myself and for the planet, even if it just means to buy less L'Oreal and more Cover FX. These lists are simply to help educate people that might be looking to do the same as me, and they are not meant to influence or pressure anyone into a lifestyle they can't or don't want to follow through with.
