CVS (will be taking them off my list, they have changed their statement and it appears they may be testing on animals):

Our present policy is: “We do not use animal testing as a standard procedure for any products marketed under the CVS brand label.” In addition, we have asked our testing laboratory to seek all possible alternatives to using laboratory animals in the testing process.

THE VILLAGE COMPANY (will be adding to my list)
Thank you for your email. The Village Company is strongly against testing products on animals. All of our products are ‘cruelty-free’, although some products do contain animal derived ingredients such as milk protein, beeswax, etc. Most of our labels on our products clearly state this.
We are not affiliated with any companies that test products on animals. We do not have products sold in China.
I hope this information helps. If you have any further questions please let me know.

MAKEUP GEEK (From Youtube) (will be adding to my list)
Our company does not test ingredients or finished products on animals. The same goes for our manufacturer.
We do not have any third-party testing on animals for ingredients or finished products
We an independently-owned company and we are not associated with any other companies that test products on animals.
We don’t sell through distributors so we don’t have Chinese distributors that would make us fall under the Chinese laws on cosmetics testing.
Hope this helps!
