It says they don't test on animals, but I'm not sure if any of the ingredients are animal derived. Someone said they use urea which is oftenfrom animals, but it doesn't say urea on my bottle?

The main products I'm cpncerned about (cause there are many tongue) are the original plain moisturiser, the SPF+15 one, and the Foot Magic one.

Spanks a million guys!  beaverhug
I just looked up the exact same question in Google and found this reply in Yahoo Answers:

They don't test on animals, which is always a good start, however....
I'm sorry to have to tell you that the mineral oil base for Palmer's products is bovine fat based. sad
It used to be my favourite as well. sad
I was assured that ALL bovine fats used by them are a BY PRODUCT of the meat industry and no animal has been slaughtered for the purpose.
I emailed the company regarding this about 6 months ago and I must say they were VERY reluctant to admit this. (if you look at some of my prev As to similars Qs, the email will be copy pasted.)

I am DEVO as I love Palmer's sad

Hey guys I'm pretty sure its not ethical. St Ives is owned by Unilever who make paddle pops and lynx deodorant amongst other things, and have a history of animal testing. St Ives itself IS vegan but the money ends up in the pockets of Unilever.

Hey Je ne.  This is how the big companies fool you into thinking  that you're shopping ethically. Even if ALL St. Ives products ARE vegan, your hard earned money goes straight to Unilever so they can fund more disgusting experiments. Same thing with the Body Shop. Owned by L'Oreal now. Even though Body Shop products themselves may not be tested, L'Oreal as a whole DOES carry out animal testing so again, you will hand over your money at the Body Shop counter thinking you've done no harm but then L'Oreal will suck that cash right out of Body Shop's till and into their stinking, animal torturing pockets! Don't fall for it!

Also, there are genuine vegan and cruelty free alternatives to just about everything. They may be harder to find and you may have to order over the internet, but seriously, I'd rather stink than give in and buy cruel products.
