The following list consists of companies that DO test on animals. Its main source is PETA, and I’ve supplemented it with my own research. I’ve organized the brands by category but you’ll notice that most of these brands are owned by a few big corporations. These corporations are L’Oreal, Estee Lauder, Procter & Gamble, Clorox, Johnson & Johnson, S.C. Johnson, Colgate-Palmolive, Reckitt Benckiser, Church & Dwight, Unilever, and Dial/Henkel.
These companies all have poor ethics when it comes to animal testing, and are making no efforts to change their policies. There are however two exceptions, the first one being Colgate-Palmolive, which have agreed to gradually change their policy. PETA currently lists Colgate-Palmolive as “working toward regulatory changes to reduce the number of animals used for testing”. This does NOT mean the company is or will be cruelty-free in the near future! It’s only a small step in the right direction, and the company still DOES test on animals at this point.
The second exception consists of a few select brands. While in most cases, brands that are owned by companies that test on animals are not cruelty-free, L’Oreal is one of the few companies to own brands that have kept their ethical stances and have remained cruelty-free under the ownership. The same goes for Burt’s Bees (now owned by Clorox but still cruelty-free) and Tom’s of Maine (Colgate-Palmolive).
All the brands mentioned on this list, however, do test on animals. Please note that this list is not exhaustive. This list only includes companies that claimed they test on animals at some point, or sell in China; there are many other companies who remained silent about their animal testing policy.

The zoo are going to be a terrific option place if you need to obtain animals shots without the need of acquiring a trip to safari in summer time. You could just take their shots from the safe and sound bench which is available in close proximity to the cages. To generate you results in getting the images of animals you want, you could observe the subsequent tips.
From a jungle of rain-washed pines and junipers spearing the hot blueness on the Florida sky, ran a small, tawny-haired boy. His bare ft, extending from his overalled legs, crackled towards the fallen palmettos. He leaped into the air, flinging his arms toward a flock of white doves circling higher than him.
To give you an idea of how prevalent animal testing is in household and cosmetic products, we have provided a short list below of familiar household brands that test their products on animals — so you can spot and avoid them. You can even download a free iPhone/iPad/Android app so that you can easily access the list of products such as make-up, skin care, deodorants, household cleaners and car care that haven't been tested on animals! Millions of rabbits, dogs, cats, mice and other animals are burned, poisoned and killed in painful and unnecessary tests each year for the sake of cosmetics and toiletries.
Finished products (and/or their individual ingredients) are frequently tested on animals overseas before making their way to Australia. Some tests are standard practice for such companies and brands, and other animal tests are carried out because of local laws in importing countries (such as China) that require all beauty products to be tested on animals before they are allowed to be sold in that country.
So some companies and brands may state that they don't support animal testing, but they would not be on the cruelty-free list because they choose to sell their products in countries that require animal testing. The list below shows companies that use animal testing as well as particular brands that are tested on animals for any or all of the reasons we mention above: Cosmetics & personal careAndrew CollingeAnna SuiAramisAveenoAvon*Band-AidBiothermBobbi BrownBonjelaBraunCacharelCashmere BouquetChapstickClairolClean & ClearClearasilClinicareCliniqueColgateCovergirl*CrestDecoreDisprinDolce & GabbanaDonna KaranDoveDufourDurexElizabeth ArdenEstee Lauder*EulactolFruitrienceGarnierGilletteGiorgio ArmaniGucci FragrancesHead & ShouldersHerbal EssencesHugo BossImpulseJohnson & JohnsonJurlique*KerastaseKiehl'sLacosteLancomeLemsipListerineL'Occitane*L'Oreal*LuxLynxMACMary Kay*Max FactorMaybellineMichael KorsMissoniMumNairNeutrogenaNice 'n EasyNurofenOlayOld SpiceOptrexOral BPalmolivePantenePearl DropsPearsPertPlaxPondsPPSRadoxRalph Lauren FragrancesReachRedkenRevlonRexonaRogaineSanexSaturnSavlonSchollSensodyneShiseidoShu UemuraSimpleSK-IISpeed StickSt IvesStayfreeSteradentStrepsilsTampaxTom FordTommy HilfigerTony & GuyTREsemmeVaselineVeetVenusVicksVidal SassonViktor & RolfV05WaxeezeWellaWella BalsamZest Household3MAeroguardAir WickAjaxAmbi-PurArmor AllAutanBaygonBlooBrassoCalgonCastleCloroxCold PowerComfortCrispCuddlyDawnDettolDomestosDranoDriveDuckDynamoEasy-Off BAMExit MouldFabFabulonFairyFebrezeFiestaFinishFluffyFreedomGladGladeGlen 20GumptionHandy AndyHarpicHurricaneJeyesJifKiwiKwitMarveerMorteinMr MuscleMr SheenNapisanNiftiNu-ClenzOff!OmoOustPea-BeauPine O CleenPledgePreenRaidSardScotch-GardSilvoSoft SoapSpreeSteeloVanishWindex Please note that this list is not exhaustive and reflects research at the time of publication.
*This brand has a 'no animal testing' policy in the make and manufacture of their cosmetics, however they have chosen to sell in markets that require (by law) animal testing on their products before they are cleared to sell in those markets. This means that their end products are tested on animals in some markets (for example, China). You can help spare animals from cruel tests! Pledge to use non-animal tested products If after reading this you have struck a cruel company off your shopping list, please contact their customer feedback to let them know why.
Urge major companies including Procter & Gamble, Unilever and Colgate/Palmolive to stop allowing unnecessary and cruel animal tests. Take action! Cruelty-free options Choosing non-tested products is easy. You can find a list of companies that do not test on animals on the Choose Cruelty Free (CCF) website. (If a brand does not appear in the CCF cruelty-free list, then there is reason to believe that their products or ingredients may have been tested on animals, or they may not have qualified for the CCF accreditation because they use animals in some other form in their products.
All of this is explained for you on the CCF website.) References for this list PETA "Companies that do test on animals" Shop Ethical guide
