Beauty Companies Against Animal Testing

Posted on

A couple of days, I came across a YouTube video from one of my favorite companies, Lush. They did a real-life demonstration on what animal testing is like and how cruel and unusual it is. Watch this video.

Shocking, right? After watching this video, I decided I had to do my part. I signed Lush’s petition here. I also came up with the idea to research and compile a list of the well-known companies that DON’T test on animals. I’m including makeup, skin care, and even clothing stores that sell perfumes or lotions. Here’s what I’ve found:

*When I put something in parentheses like (this) that means where you can find these companies in stores.
