As to my views regarding animal testing, obviously I am against it and want it banned worldwide. I have a dog, and the thought of my money going towards torturing animals like my dog sickens me. However, my views on certain points may be different to yours, so I will clarify them here. Some people do not feel comfortable supporting brands who are owned by companies that test on animals, or who have expanded into places, for example China, where the government may test products going onto the market without the knowledge of the company. My personal beliefs in situations like these is that if a company will advocate alternative tests and bans on animal testing, I will continue to support the company. I do not want my money to go towards the torture of animals, but I do want my money to go to helping the cause. I know that other people do not feel this way, and do not want to support these companies. For these people, I have marked the companies that I know of that have expanded into China, and those that are owned by parent companies that do test. If I use a product from companies that fit into either of those categories, I will try to include a product from a more suitable brands as an alternative.

**WARNING** this video is very graphic and sick, this is actually the video that convinced me to become cruelty-free. I think it should be seen, but just prepare yourself.
