PETA list of companies that test on animals

If you click on the link below you'll be taken to a list of companies that test on animals. I would hope that animal advocates take the time to read the list. However, it is difficult, I believe, to avoid buying products on supermarket shelves that have been involved in any way with animal testing because, firstly, there is a plethora of products and secondly, you don't know which manufacturer is ultimately responsible; meaning the umbrella company.

You might read that the manufacturer is a smallish company but it may well be owned by one of the big multi-national companies such as Colgate-Palmolive who do animal testing. I believe they contract it out but ultimately they are responsible for it.

In addition, most consumers in a supermarket are in a hurry to do their shopping and get home. Well, at least the men are!  However, the only way to have our say albeit with an almost insignificant effect, is to reject products which have some connection in their manufacture to animal testing. If everyone made a minute impact it would amount to a big impact.

Most products not tested on animals have the leaping bunny logo on the back, we have to be very careful to make sure too that none of the ingredients listed were tested on animals as this is how some firms get around it, saying they don't test on animals, but sneakily use ingredients other firms have tested.

They are very sneaky I agree Ruth. It can be difficult to tell. They wriggle around these things.
