And this is how my blog is revitalized. I experienced a drought in my life.. my desire to write shriveled. I did not entirely lose myself, but I did forget a piece of myself. Misplaced most likely. Somewhere. So I planted some blue flowers. Promise to forget-me-not.

Look For The Leaping Bunny

Look For The Leaping Bunny

I am not going to show you pictures of neglected animals who were tested on. I am not going to write page after page claiming how bad of a person you are for using these products. I am not going to lecture you, guilt you, or point fingers.

I mean we’ve all used these products before, regardless if we knew about the testing or not. And there is nothing to be ashamed of. Some of us may have not realized the mass amount of brands that test on animals, while others may have known, but their choices were influenced by time, money, sentiments, or simply convenience. And that is okay. Life can be a handful. There’s always something going on and something that needs to be done. I get that.

However, I think the first step to a great change lies within the knowledge of people. Before any action can take place, eliminating the ignorance on the subject is necessary. So here I am today, not telling you to do anything, but instead just giving you a list. What you choose to do with this list is your choice. You can think about it, use it next time you go shopping, or exit out of my blog and never think about this article again. It is 100% your choice.

Here are a few brands that test on animals:

Cosmetics and Haircare

Avon
Bobbi Brown
Covergirl
Estée Lauder
Head & Shoulders
L’Oréal
M.A.C. Cosmetics
Mary Kay
Maybelline
Pantene
Revlon
stila
TRESemmé

Self-Care Products

Almay
Aquafresh
Aveeno
Caress
ChapStick
Clean & Clear
Coppertone
Dove
Johnson & Johnson
Kiehl’s
Listerine
Old Spice
Pampers
Secret
St. Ives
Vaseline 
Vicks

Household Products

Arm & Hammer
Clorox
Comet
Febreze
Glade 
Lysol
Tide
Windex

There are still a variety of companies that do not test on animals including: Trader Joe’s, Too Faced Cosmetics, Lush, Bath and Body Works, Aveda, Urban Decay, wet n wild, etc.

If you aren’t sure if a product is cruelty-free or not, then look for the leaping bunny logo  on its packaging (pictured on the bottom of this page). Also, here is a link that might be helpful:

Don’t be hard on yourself if you use some of these products. You aren’t perfect, I’m not perfect, humans aren’t perfect. Making one little swap is making a difference. Just walking around a little less ignorant on this subject is making a difference. So if you have finished reading this blog post, no pressure. You are officially a part of a revolution (P.S. This is not the same revolution I was referring to in my scented markers post!).

 

 YO LISTEN UP:

Burt’s Bees doesn’t test on animals, but the brand is owned by Clorox, a company that isn’t cruelty-free… hmmm interesting.
