THIS makes me VERY happy.

I go to fairly extreme lengths to avoid buying products from companies that do testing on animals. Ology bar soap and liquid hand soap, which I get at Walgreens, is a favorite, but also Alberto Culver products and a shampoo brand I pick up at Dollar Tree (my mind is blanking on the brand, and I don’t have any right now)*, and Argan Oil of Morocco, which is available at Walgreens and Walmart, for a nice touch after shampooing.

Okay, the extreme lengths are just reading labels and googling brands.  But still ….

It’s nice that soon (although not soon enough) I won’t be so limited.  But I’ll still remember the brands that did this voluntarily.

Go Humane Society!
