These companies still test.
5 years ago

Procter & Gamble [Vicks; Always; Aussie; Bounce; Crest; Cover Girl; Febreze; Puffs; Tampax; Charmin; Iams (yes, they supply pet food, & still animal test); more]
--Still animal testing.
From their website: "Sometimes, to ensure that materials are safe and effective, we must conduct research that involves animals. This is a last resort. We consider such research only after every other reasonable option has been exhausted. The vast majority of our tests do not use animals and our ultimate goal is to completely eliminate animal testing."

Unilever [Dove; Q-Tips; Vaseline; Axe; Brut; Finesse; Calvin Klein; more]
--Working on it, but still testing on animals. Let's encourage them to quit completely.
From their website: "Unilever is committed to the elimination of animal testing. We are equally committed to consumer health and safety, and to the safety of our workforce and the environment. Where some testing is required by law or currently unavoidable, we aim to minimize the number of animals used."

SC Johnson [Drano; Glade; Pledge; Off; Scrubbing Bubbles; Shout; Skintamate; Vanish; Saran Wrap; more]
--Conducts animal testing.
From their website: "This is a topic that we care a lot about, and unfortunately it doesn't have a simple answer. SC Johnson is committed to minimizing animal testing, and we support alternative methods wherever suitable. However, in some cases governments require testing before approving products for sale. In other cases, alternative methods are insufficient to evaluate product safety. So, animal testing sometimes may have to be used."
--Not so. Plenty of companies strictly alternative-test only. Animals are never required. `A family company,' but not for animals.

Johnson and Johnson [Neutrogena; Aveeno; Band-Aid; Carefree; Clean & Clear; Stayfree; TGel; O.B.; Reach; more]
--Doesn't even try to deny it. They openly test on animals. There is no reason for buying their products.

Colgate Palmolive [all products labeled Colgate, Palmolive; Irish Spring; Baby Magic; Mennen; Murphy's Oil; Softsoap; Ajax; Dynamo; Fab; Speed Stick; Hills Pet Nutrition & Science Diet—feeding pets while testing on animals; more]
From their website: "For Colgate's consumer products all required animal testing is conducted at outside laboratories under Colgate supervision using a minimum number of animals. We have stringent guidelines for evaluating testing facilities and reviewing animal research proposals."
From [peta]: "In March 1999, Colgate-Palmolive established a moratorium on animal testing for adult personal care products (this includes deodorants, shampoos, fragrances, and shaving creams)…Colgate is still using animals in the testing of fluoride for its toothpaste."

Gillette [Braun; Duracell; Oral-B; Right Guard; Sensor; Trac; more]
-- From "The animal testing that is done uses fewer animals now than ever, and the company is funding research into alternatives that will reduce the use of animals while assuring the safety of the products." I.e., they're still testing on animals.
