Would you stop using your favorite brand of makeup, shampoo, toothpaste, etc. if you found out...

the company tested on animals? Why or why not?

  • I already did that about 20 years ago. Cosmetics industry animal testing is not only cruel, it's unnecessary.

  • Maybe. I do stop using products when I find out they are owned by Nestle. I have been avoiding Nestle for over 30 years because of their formula marketing practices.

  • Nahh not tested on animals, I know I should care more but... all my beauty products are chemical free anyways & they all say no animal testing... I stopped using all the above products when I got pregnant & started educating myself on the ingredients & what they were doing to my body.

  • Yep, because I think animal testings is wrong. Lots of products work just great without the harsh chemicals and testing.

    Answer by tobys.mommy at 11:49 PM on Jul. 2, 2010

  • No. I wouldn't because we pretty much know which ingredients to avoid (caustic chemicals, etc) that cause lots of harm, and animals are animals... they don't know or care as long as they're fed and cared for. If we were testing nasty chemicals on them, then yeah, I might switch, but we're not.

    I also support animal testing for medical advancement. Without it we come to a stalemate and won't be developing useful medications.

  • lol, I stop using a lot of products because I find out what they are made of.

    I won't use most "no tears" baby shampoos

    I hope I never have a dandruff issue, but if I ever did I would NEVER use over the counter shampoos for dandruff

    I won't use pantiene.. I could go on. lol.

  • to me, educating yourself on the products is key to not only stopping something like this, but also in helping YOURSELF know what you are topically or orally putting inside of yourself.
