Animal Testing Report Card

Featured Best Natural Skin-Care Products

The brands below are grouped in one of the following categories: Brands That Do NOT Test on Animals, Brands That DO Test on Animals, and Brands Whose Animal Testing Status is Unknown*. We use the National Anti-Vivisection Society (NAVS) website ( as our main resource for the lists below. If the brand (or its parent company) cannot be found via resources from NAVS, then we default to the status provided by the brand and/or its parent company along with our own independent research to determine, to the best of our abilities, the animal-testing status of the brand.

IMPORTANT NOTE 1: If the company's site claims they do not test on animals but the brand has a China website or is sold by a cosmetics site selling to citizens of mainland China, we consider said brand one that tests on animals. The Chinese government requires animal testing on all imported cosmetics. So, a brand that retails there (whether online or in an actual store) must agree to this testing even though they may not test on animals themselves or endorse this practice in any other country.

IMPORTANT NOTE 2: The lists below may differ from those from PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). We feel strongly that NAVS takes a more balanced approach to the issue of animal testing, but agree that it would be best if these two groups harmonized their lists.

IMPORTANT NOTE 3: We do not penalize a brand that doesn't test on animals if their parent company happens to tests on animals. We don't think this is fair; the final choice is up to you in terms of where you prefer to draw the line.
