Hundreds of thousands of these animals are poisoned, blinded, and killed every year in outdated and ineffective product tests for shampoos, household cleaners, cosmetics, hairsprays, and other personal care and household items. Although more than 600 companies have banned all animal tests forever, some corporations still force substances into animals' stomachs and drip chemicals into rabbits' eyes. These tests are not required by law, and they often produce inaccurate and misleading results—even if a product has blinded an animal, it can still be marketed to you.
You can click here to read my reviews of cruelty-free products. This list contains PETA's Caring Consumer products as well as products that have somehow indicated that they're cruelty-free (e.g. on their products, websites, etc.). If I have made a mistake and said a product is cruelty-free when it really isn't, or vice versa, please feel free to contact me and let me know.
As a disclaimer, I really do try my best effort to shop cruelty-free products only. There are times when I may buy and review imported cosmetics and skincare products from Asia. They do not list this type of information and neither does PETA. However, please keep in mind that I do try to make the effort to stay away from brand names that DO test on animals such as, CoverGirl, L'Oreal, Maybelline, Shiseido, Lancome, etc.
