Good to know. I do not use Loreal products, but I will definitely pass this info along to others. Thanks.
There are still a lot of companies that perform animal testing. As a vegan I try my best to not purchase any of those. You can always check out PETA's website to find out what companies DO and DO NOT perform animal testing.
That is very interesting, since L'Oreal owns The Body Shop now. I wonder how Anita Roddick was able to reconcile that dissonance.
If you look online for "Pom animal testing," you can get info on the HORRIBLE animal tests that were done for pomegranate juice (no longer done, due to uproar and protests by customers).On the right they say they commit to no animal testing for tea...just makes you think what the heck...they even tested TEA on animals??

There are companies that don't test final products on animals yet procure ingredients and/or use manufacturers who do test on animals. It's more common than people realize because it is harder to trace obscure Factories.
No, cosmetics and such DON'T have to be tested on animals.Is it a law?? That products have to be tested? Ingredients ?? Just wondering .. I work were you see Msds sheets sometimes and I hate seeing ld50s etc.

I just read where fertilizer, weed killer and any household product that claims to be antibacterial or 'germ killing' DOES have to be tested on animals. A good reason for avoiding them, IMO.
