L'oreal also funds the Israeli military I think.

Bit of a silly question, I know that The Body Shop doesn't test on animals, but do any of their products contain animal-derived ingrediants in them? I know some of the lip glosses have beeswax in them, but does anyone know of anything else?

Yeah they don't test their final products on animals, but some of the ingredients have been tested on animals. (so same thing really.)


Hrmm what are some alternatives?

The trade aid store cucumber soap is DAMN yummy.

manic panic makeup is pretty good, and I'm pretty sure its not tested on animals.

funding the military directly might be a wee bit of an exaggeration but...

they have been engaged in actively courting Israel with investments and large-scale commerce.

American Jewish Congress has expressed "keen satisfaction that L'Oreal has become a warm friend of Israel" [1]

L'Oreal has established Israel as its commercial center in the Middle East and has increased investment and manufacturing activities ranging from a new production line established in Migdal Haemek, to joint research and development projects with Israeli affiliates, as well as education and public service campaigns. [2]

In 1998 Mr. Pascal Castres St Martin of L' Oreal, received the Jubilee Award by the Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. This is the highest tribute ever awarded by the "State of Israel" in recognition of those individuals and organizations, that through their investments and trade relationships, have done the most to strengthen the Israeli economy. [7]

innoxa has a good range of cruelty free stuff, body/face washes, makeup as well i think, also have a range called young solutions which is pretty sweet.

LUSH! seriously this stuff is unparallelled. not only do they not test on animals, but the (vegan) products dont contain anything derived from animals. almost everything there is vegan, everything else is vegetarian. they also dont buy anything from suppliers who test on animals, and therefore they dont make sunscreen and hair gel. big emphasis on au naturel, and it all smells sooo goood. become a convert. and with names like "sonic death monkey" "mama caca rouge" and "demon in the dark", why wouldnt you?

yeah the innoxa range is pretty sweet but the young solution face mask is quite harsh and can tend to make your skin peel.
I find the trilogy and living nature products are the best and yes they are fucking expensive but if you really really want some luxury 'beauty' products that don't test on animals and don't have horrible shit in them i'd go for them.

I like their deodorant. Neutral, and really effective.

Doesn't anything glossy usually have fish-scales in it?

I'm not really feeling the dropping shampoo into rabits' eyes to see if it stings kind of thing.
