My shower and animal testing...


Animal tests are not necessary to save the lives of humans, would I die if I chose Weleda shampoo instead of a Procter and Gamble Shampoo? Some companies still test on animals, some don't. So all we have to do is watch out for these, read the full list at www.caringconsumer.com
In the photo you can see Weleda, Lavera, Argital, and Aleppo soap.
Stay away from:
Colgate-Palmolive Co.
Johnson & Johnson
Unilever
L'Oreal
Procter & Gamble (hidden under the names: Max Factor, Noxell, Cover Girl, Pantene, Crest, Gillette, Iams...)
Reckitt Benckiser (hidden under the names: Easy Off, Lysol, Mop & Glo, Old English, Resolve, Veet, Woolite...)

Please note that Revlon and Avon Cosmetics no longer test on animals after the release of investigations.

[Cosmetic testing on animals is used to gain inaccurate results to legally market potentially dangerous products, as animals re-act completely differently from chemicals than we do, faulty results can be achieved - this is why some companies prefer to use them, despite the fact they are more expensive, but they're inaccurate so when they hurt someone because they sold a dangerous product that they didn't test accurately, they don't get their ass' sued off and they can blame their research. But cosmetic animal tests have been replaced by cheaper, safer and more accurate tests that won't gain faulty results.]

Thanks a lot for the helpful list and links! Lately I've been buying some products from Lush, but I'm not very familiar with other brands that are OK yet. there's some good material to look into here :)

I remember when I first became vegetarian, about 17 years ago (wow!), almost every company tested on animals. Now, there is a wide variety of companies that do not. This is one of the great victories of the animal rights movement, I think.

Hi!
You may probably be very curious to know how one can manage to receive high yields on investments.
There is no need to invest much at first.
You may begin earning with a money that usually is spent
on daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one company's work for several years,
and I'll be glad to share my secrets at my blog.

Please visit blog and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I make 1000-2000 per daily now.
