Huh

I just learned that Johnson and Johnson, who make my much-loved Aveeno body lotion (which I mentioned here in my Oatmeal Post), still test on animals.

Their US site issues a statement that they treat their animals as humanely as possible and test only to comply with FDA regulations for the testing of new ingredients. However I feel that there are plenty of non-new ingredients they could be using in their beauty products. That don’t need to be tested on animals.

I present to you a more expensive but also more ethical oaty alternative – Neal’s Yard Remedies Calendula and Oat lotion. I think this is the one I’ll be using in future.
