Do you know for sure if the products you use are not tested on animals?

  • Just because the product might say "not tested on animals", that does not mean each individual ingredient wasn't once tested on animals. Most ingredients in cosmetics & shampoos etc have already years ago been tested on animals to prove safety, thus eliminating the "need" to do it in newer products. So, they can claim not tested on animals on something & be sort of correct. Their product might not have but you can't know the stuff in it hasn't previously been tested in animals.

  • That's right anon! I highly doubt we know what every company does to test their products. I know which ones are less likely to, but a lot of them I just don't know. I know baby shampoo was poored in rabbits eyes to see if it burned. So I'm not a fan. I do believe Paul Mitchell does not, and takes pride in it. So do many other organic companies. I'm going to start looking more now.
