A list of common products that still employ animal testing.

“Still buying products tested on animals? Look at these poor bunnies about to be tested on.” ~ Good Human

There’s how we think of Bunnies…Easter! So cute! Then there’s how we treat them, whether we think about it or (more likely) not.

This post is inspired by the Good Human’s tweet featuring the photo, below.

It’s important to look at the tortuous reality our purchases create.

We think bunnies are cute. We put them all over Easter cards. Children read about them in books. And, yah, they are cute.

Updated list: Here’s PETA’s list of companies that don’t test on animals: http://www.mediapeta.com/peta/PDF/companiesdonttest.pdf

Thanks to China, these cosmetic companies are testing on animals again. 

But they aren’t bunnies, anymore, these days. They’re lab specimens.

The 13th rabbit photo isn’t so lucky:

Update: here’s a constantly updated searchable list, via PETA.

Here’s a list of common products that still employ animal testing. For an updated list (the list changes all the time, of course) click here.

This list is constantly changing—hopefully because companies are becoming more compassionate!

Please also note that all over-the-counter medicines and/or their ingredients are extensively tested on animals, as currently required by the FDA.”

While there are many no-test lists and companies that claim they don't test, only one is 100% accurate — LEAPING BUNNY.

It seems that there is an ‘animal-friendly’ statement on every cosmetic and household product available, not to mention the different bunny logos out there. It’s utterly confusing and can have no real meaning.

The Leaping Bunny is the only internationally-recognized certification for cosmetics, personal care and household product brands which are not tested on animals. They audit their entire supply-chain monitoring system to check companies meet their strict criteria, and re-audit each company on an annual basis.

The Leaping Bunny Program offers not just a list, but a Standard—the only Standard that guarantees a product to be free of new animal testing. While many ingredients have been tested on animals in the past, the Standard is designed to prevent future animal testing and eventually drive animal testing out of the industry completely. In addition, the Leaping Bunny Standard is internationally recognized.
