What cosmetic companies do NOT test on animals?

I'm looking for both cosmetics and face cleaners from companies that don't test on animals and are reasonably priced

  • Bath and Body Works does test on animals. All the chemicals get tested on bunny eyes, and mouse skin, and all sorts of horrors. They just don't test the final product.

    Covergirl tests on animals. So does Johnson & Johnson, Neutrogena, S.C. Johnson, L'oreal, Lancome, Maybelline, Procter & Gamble, Max Factor, Olay, Rimmel

    Companies that DO NOT test: Almay, Bare Essentials, Estée Lauder Family(MAC, Clinique, etc.), Urban Decay, Too Faced Cosmetics, Smashbox Cosmetics, Revlon, Mary Kay, Nordstrom Cosmetics, Victoria's Secret, Bonne Bell

  • Aveda doesn't test on animals, and they are environmentally friendly as well. I love their products.

  • The Body Shop (NOT Bath and Body Shop). My sister used to work there and I LOVE their stuff. It is more expensive then I usually spend, but they have excellent products!

  • You've got a lot of answers here already, but I just wanted to share that I've been using Origins for years and I absolutely love thier products. They're a little on the higher end, but not too bad. Most things run from about 12 to 25 dollars. They don't test on animals, nor do they use any animal products like many other products do. It's all natural ingredients.
    Their skin products are absolutely amazing.

  • Burts Bees does not. They have some great cleansers, lotions, and lip stains that are as close to all natural as possible.

  • Urban Decay doesn't test on animals and is mostly, if not all, vegan

  • Not sure, but they usually say on the label. Only one I know is Lip Smakers but that's really Chapstick for little girls.
