So you want to stop cruelty in laboratories. Great! Luckily for you (and the animals) cruelty-free products are more abundant than ever. Pop into any major supermarket and you’ll find all the cruelty-free products you need, for your house, body care and of course for glamour without the gore.
This is the “Not Tested on Animals” logo, that appears on some products that are not tested on animals (but not all). If you see this stamp on a product—you’re set, and can be sure that the brand stands up to the strict accreditation scheme of Choose Cruelty Free. Check out their website for an even bigger list of cosmetics and other products that aren’t tested on animals!
Compassionate shopping is easy! Just look out for products that say “not tested on animals” or better yet, are marked with the Choose Cruelty Free stamp of approval.

Changing shopping habits can seem hard for other family members if you don’t help them out. So grab your shopping list and head to the store with the family. If you help pick out cruelty free products this makes everyone’s life easier and once they know what to look for they’ll have no problems next time. You can even be a huge help by picking out cruelty-free products the whole family will use, such as laundry detergent, dish washing liquid, toothpaste and more.
If you’re not sure if a product or its ingredients have been tested on animals, the best way to find out is to call the company. And of course, if they do test on animals, it’s always worth politely explaining that you don’t support animal tests and won’t be buying their products!
If you happen to be at store and are wondering about a product, you can always ask the store attendant. While they may not know, this sends an important message to the store that their customers don’t want to support animal tests. And who knows, you might just get the information you need.
