I was prompted to post this from another post on winter products for the body.
My quest for the past several months has been to find products (not excrutiatingly expensive) that are cruelty-free and contain NO animal ingredients.
St. Ives, from the products that I’ve been using, does not test on animals. I think a few of their products do contain animal ingredients. I use their Oatmeal Body Wash, Lotion for my body and a face moisturizer.
Hair: I use Pureology products and they are 100% vegan.
What do you use?

I love Pureology and Paul Mitchell for hair! I also like St. Ives and Alba for my skin 🙂

@grenadine: I’ve not heard of Alba. I’ll have to check that out.

I just started using a shampoo from a line called Live Clean, and they are 100% vegan and cruelty-free.

There’s also Burt’s Bees, but I prefer not to use that for my skin because it’s a bit heavy. They have cruelty free toothpaste and great lip balm, though.
The Body Shop is also on the list of cruelty free products.

PETA also keeps a database on their website, so you can look up products there:

We do our best to use nothing but cruelty free products throughout our entire house! All of our cleaning products are organic or all natural (most companies that make cleaners or products like Windex test on animals). We use Organix for shampoo/conditioner and it’s sold at Target. We use Method brand dishwasher tablets, laundry detergent, and hand soap. Our body wash is St. Ives and our toothpaste is Tom’s of Main!

I use BB, Tom’s of Maine, BWC (Beauty Without Cruelty), Alba, Jason, Crystal, Seventh Generation…I’m a little obsessed with safe, natural products, but they all happen to be cruelty free as well. 🙂

I love Beauty Without Cruelty’s Rosemary Mint Tea Tree Shampoo/Condition. No animal testing and it’s vegan. They also have face/body products. http://www.beautywithoutcruelty.com/

I love Lush products. No, wait … I’m obsessed with them! Not all of their products are vegan but some of them are. And everything is fair-trade & handmade & natural. If you become an addict too, don’t say I didn’t warn you! 😉

A side-note about that PETA list, it’s a good reference, but please don’t buy products that give PETA money (either portion of profits or donations).
PETA isn’t what they appear to be. They are an extremist group that wants the extinction of domestic animals (both pets and livestock) and to end all human/animal interaction.
A few of the things PETA is *against*:
– no-kill shelters (they think all shelters should be “kill-shelters”)
– service dogs for blind/disabled people
– pets (“one generation and out”, they want to end the idea of pet ownerships)
– March of Dimes
– World Wildlife Fund
PETA supports BSL (breed specific legislation).
PETA has also given out comics to kids saying at the end that their parents are going to kill the family pets:
Daddy Kills Animals
Mommy Kills Animals
End of Public Service Announcement, resume normal conversation!

@abbyful: I’m glad you posted this. I just read a whole thing about them and their kill shelters that made me want to cry.
I use Urban Decay makeup, which is cruelty free, and a lot of it is vegan. And it’s amazing, so that’s a big plus.

abbyful- Those comics are just horrible, and if I ever would of read those when I was a kid I would be traumatized for life.
