        Sorry to ask..

        what does it really means by "test on animals"?

        Is it meant that the products are not tested on animals or the product does not contain any compounds that came from animals.

        Sorry if my question may seem silly

          it means that the products are not tested on animals. Does not mean that the products do not contain animal-derived ingrediants though. there are also brands like freeman which contain stricly vegan ingrediants and are not tested on animals. Hope this helps

            These brands might not test on animals but that doesn't mean that the ingredients that they're using have no been tested on animals.

            Yes, it is cruel to test on animals but then again, where will medical science now be if not for these testings? Personally, I do think it's a little too much for one to say they avoid animal-testing products and yet eat meat or take medications. After all, the reason why the medications are available to us is because they're proven to be safe from the animals testing.

            This is why I'm not a big fan of Peta. I've read several websites that discuss Peta's actions. And even their members starts to question their motives and eventually left the organisation.

              for me, the reason is personal. coz i keep hamsters as pets so I don't want to use products that test on them, if it can be avoided. no doubt, animal testing has rendered many products safe for our consumption, and I am definitely grateful for that. however, beauty products that test on animals are something which i can avoid using, as there are alternatives available. to me, it's like taking very small steps each day towards a cause i believe in.

              yes peta is extreme and I didn't say I support them. just using their list as a point of reference as they are some guidelines for the companies to adhere to.

              anyway, i am just starting this thread so that I know my options when i go shopping - am definitely not asking for any converts here
