Brands to Avoid: The Brands That Still Test on Animals in 2018

The following is a list I have compiled of worldwide brands who still test on animals that are available in Ireland. The majority of these brands are ‘required by law’ to test on animals, which means they most likely sell in China, where there is no animal welfare law in place.

Why Aren’t These Brands Cruelty-Free?

The brands below take part in one of more of the following practices:

  • The brand is ‘required by law’ to test on animals
  • The brand tests on animals themselves
  • The brand allows third parties to test on animals on their behalf
  • The brand allows its raw ingredients/formulations/finished products to be tested on animals
  • The brand allows its suppliers/manufacturers to test on animals
  • The brand is sold in mainland China, where it is required by law for all cosmetics to be tested on animals.

Many of these brands are owned by the parent companies of the world that conduct animal testing for their products. The main parent companies of the cosmetic world are:

  • L’Oreal
  • Estée Lauder
  • Procter & Gamble
  • Johnson & Johnson
  • Shiseido
  • Colgate-Palmolive
  • Kosé
  • Dial/Henkel

Flawless and Pawless is Ireland's cruelty-free cosmetic blog created by 23 year-old cosmetic expert, Ailsha Davey. With eight years working in the beauty industry in Dublin as a professional make-up artist and cosmetic expert, Ailsha discovered some of the horrors of cosmetic animal testing- and the lack of knowledge within the Irish market about it. Flawless and Pawless has been set up to spread awareness across Ireland of cosmetic animal testing, as well as to provide suggestions for cruelty-free alternatives to the Irish market's favourite cosmetic products.
