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.

From a jungle of rain-washed pines and junipers spearing the hot blueness in the Florida sky, ran a small, tawny-haired boy.
