101 Cruelty-Free Companies

I don’t normally share with kind of thing but I recently stumbled across truly heart-breaking information regarding animal testing. I personally switched most of my makeup and cleaning products to nontoxic, cruelty-free brands years ago but left it at that. Out of sight – out of mind, so to speak. But when I came across this image of beagles being forced to inhale toxic chemicals, I immediately felt sick to my stomach. No living creature should have to endure this kind of suffering.

According to several sources, beagles are the dog breed most often used in animal testing, due to their size and passive nature. As a kid, I grew up with a basset hound. Her name was Georgy Girl and these cute, yet sad little beagle faces made me think of her. This prompted me to compile a list of companies that do not test on animals.

These days, it’s pretty easy to find a wide range of cruelty-free products. A lot of popular grocery store chains are even starting to carry them. Just look for any of the symbols below, which indicates the product has not been tested on animals.
