Easier than ever to be kind to animals!

– R. Tirella

Give  bunnies a break this summer by tossing your animal-tested products in favor of cruelty-free sunscreens, sunless tanners, moisturizers, and insect repellents. Some personal-care product companies are still living in the Dark Ages: They needlessly pump their products into animals’ stomachs; rub them onto animals’ raw, shaved skin; squirt them into their eyes; or force animals to inhale them. It’s time for these companies to throw in the animal-testing towel!

Finding animal-friendly skin-care products is a breeze, thanks to the hundreds of companies riding the cruelty-free wave. All the companies on our list have assured PETA in writing that they will not test their products on animals. Click here for cruelty-free companies.
