This is a good place to start...<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.caringconsumer.com/resources_companies.asp" target="_blank">http://www.caringconsumer.com/resources_companies.asp</a><br><br><br><br>
Some of those may not apply to the UK though.
As you're in the UK check out <a href="http://www.buav.org/" target="_blank">http://www.buav.org/</a><br><br><br><br>
They have details of companies that do and don't test, and will also send out a little free booklet with some of the main companies on.<br><br><br><br>
You can also check the vegetarian and vegan websites of approved products. Sometimes there are some conflicts though. For example, Ecover washing powder etc is approved by the Vegan society, but NOT by BUAV because they use a 5 year rolling rule and don't have a fixed cut-off date for animal testing.
Don't forget about all the pharmaceutical and agricultural companies that test on animals. I would say that over 90% of all animal testing is done by those two industries alone. So go organic (not just food, but clothing even more so) and opt for holistic health treatment. Doing those two things eliminates more support for animal testing than cosmetics and other household products ever could amount to.
Does anyone know if Alberto-Culver (Alberto VO5, Tresemmé) is now testing on animals? I have seen them on a lot of "companies that test on animals" lists recently. I know they used to be on the "companies that don't test on animals" list. Alberto-Culver wasn't on either of the lists on caring consumer link. I tried searching the web, and found they were on both the "companies that test on animals" and "companies that don't test on animals", but I couldn't find any for 2006.
