The Good, the Bad… and Now for the UGLY

Generally I try to highlight the good companies on this blog, suggesting wonderful cruelty-free products to help those looking to change. Today, Beagle Freedom Project supplied this list of some of the WORST OFFENDERS for animal testing. I am publishing it to help everyone recognize the brands they might still have in their homes. This one list can be a very handy reference for beginners wanting to know which products they need to replace. This is a great start!

    • Hi Kaitlynn, I know Tom’s of Maine doesn’t test but it is owned by Colgate-Palmolive which DOES test. They sold out. I have them listed in my “grey zone” companies for this fact. I personally will not buy their products because I feel that my money is still going to a cruel parent company.

  1. Great😕The only tampons I am not allergic to are Tampax.I feel so quilty now.Like hello how hard could it be to test such a thing another way.
    FREE THE BEAGLES AND SHAME ON YOU TAMPAX.DISGUSTING AND SHAMEFUL. GROW UP THIS IS THE 21 CENTURY IDIOTS

      • Hi.Went out to the store today and brought my phone (I have your list BOOKMARKED)
        OK WAY TOO EASY.PRODUCTS WERE SUPER EASY TO FIND AT NO FRILLS AND GET THIS ALOT OF THEM WERE AVAILABLE AT THE DOLLAR STORE(MARK ANTHONY etc)
        I just read the comment about The Body Shop..sell outs..anyway I remember way back when they use to write not tested on animals..GUESS WHAT ..its no longer written.

        I did purchase from No Frills LIVE FREE..its vegan and was on your list and Argan Oill of Morocco made by OGX.It says right on the back NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS.

        The Live Clean was $6.99 forma small container of it ..but I figured being vegan etc it probably costs more to make etc.The oil was $7.99 which is kinda high but really..a FEW EXTRA BUCKS TO SPARE THE SUFFERING I AM THERE.

        I don’t think ppl realize how many good CANADIAN PRODUCTS are not tested on animals.THEY ARE EVERYWHERE so really no excuse.

        THANK YOU FOEt THE LIST.I HABE IT WHEREVER I GO.
        I DONT DO GREY LIST CAUSE IF YOUR GOING TO DO IT..DO IT RIGHT LOL

        P.s I said goodbye to Aveeno and Jennifer Anisten.I love their products but didn’t see them on your list. I am sure my skin will be just as nice with FREEMAN and oh BTW you can get that at the buck store too lol👍

        Dollar Store included my MARC ANTHONY SHAMPOO (LOVE THAT STUFF)AND IT WAS $3

      • Oh dear..one more thing

        Can anyone recommend a laundry soap and fabric(my daughter likes smelly stuff) dryer sheets.

        Having a tough time trying to find some that are NOT made by the big animal abuser companies!

        • Method and seventh generation have great laundry products – if you’re into really good smelling products method is excellent as well as “the laundry tarts”
          Check out well.ca 🙂

          • Thank you! Great info!
            And will look for that! Is it only sold online? Or can you get it in the grocery store?

          • Lots of grocery stores carry Method products also Shoppers Drug Mart and Canadian Tire, Walmart all do. It is the most common probably of the ones mentioned. I use eco-max laundry detergent, sold at Real Canadian Superstore and other Loblaws retailers. I love it! I wrote a post about it. I use the unscented version but there are scented ones as well! Hope that helps.

          • PAWSOME! THANK YOU!

            Cruelty Free living has turned out to be ALOT easier then I had expected!

            Most of the pricing is the same , with ALOT of products being actually very cost effective!

            Passing info along to friends and family too.If enough of us make the transition, it will FORCE companies to listen and change their way with regards to animal testing!
