I personally take a neutral stand on animal testing in general. For example, I do think that it is a positive thing in medical research in areas like finding cures for HIV or cancer. However, in makeup, I am against it because I think that if makeup can be made without being first tested on animals and also show no negative effects on us humans whatsoever, then it is not necessary.
Here is a list of brands that conduct animal testing and brands that do not. It’s just for referential purposes and general knowledge. The entire list is taken from the pixiwoo sisters. I’ve taken the liberty to list them according to alphabetical order.
Brands Definitely Not Testing on Animals
Autograph (Marks & Spencer)
The Body Shop
Brands Probably Testing on Animals
Dolce & Gabbana
I hope this helps. The list of brands that probably utilise animal testing have not confirmed that they are not. Again, the entire list was obtained from the pixiwoo sisters.
