Great idea on switching to a different line of cosmetics! Don't be fooled by "This finished product not tested on animals." Bath and Body Works has that exact message, but when I asked whether the raw materials are tested on animals, I got a very vague answer. If a company doesn't, they'll be proud to advertise it.
My inquiries into the filthy world of animal cruelty, especially for selfish human use, has opened my eyes to the reality of it all. A lot of companies still test extremely toxic chemicals on animals, just so that some stupid human doesn't sue them if the warning label doesn't read: "Do not get product into eyes." What do you mean propylene glycol isn't good for me?!
Whole Foods, Wild Oats, Trader Joe's and other awesome markets supply products not tested on animals. Knowledge is power and the more we learn and spread the message, the sooner this cruelty can stop. Same with factory farming! But before I go off on a whole other tangent, my best advice: read the labels, contact the company, be smart, and be beautiful!
Here's a link to companies that do and don't test on animals. I'm sure there are others, but it's a good start.http://pw2.netcom.com/~axleplus/stuf...f/company.html
