What about animal testing for skin care products?

Love the website, thanks. I've searched the site, but I haven't found a list of recommended products that don't test on animals. I know lots of people don't mind, but it's important to some of us, and I think it'd be a welcome addition to the site. Thanks, Chloe

Hi Chloe –  

I agree and since the EU now bans products that are testing on animals, most of the companies who market and sell there have addressed that issue.   Also, the Environmental Working Group site often has more up to date information than I could ever hope to maintain.   I don’t always agree with their assessments of products but I often do.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
