As far as I am aware, the only animal testing that is allowed to take place in this country is for medical purposes.
However, most products are tested on animals in other countries.
If you tried to ban every product that was tested on animals our supermarkets would be pretty empty. It would simply never happen.
You can buy lots of products that are cruelty free though, check out the leapingbunny.org for info on these products. It’s pretty difficult to swap everything completely though.

Medicines need to be tested before you can give them to sick people or else you could make them a lot worse.
Scientists use animals sometimes to test the medicines on for this reason but they don’t take the decision lightly to test on an animal. There are a lot of ethical considerations that have to be taken into account first.
If medicines were not tested on animals unsafe medicines could be used to treat patients. There is a lot of research happening to reduce the amount of animal testing going on at the moment, hopefully in the future with enough research scientists will find an alternative to using animals.
