thanks for the post.

it is important to remember though, that buav (british union for the abolition of vivisection) is not a charity and receives no government or lottery funding.

"The BUAV is unable to gain charitable status due to a court ruling in 1947. Following a challenge by the Inland Revenue, the House of Lords ruled that anti-vivisection organisations could not be charitable because the work of these organisations was not for the “public benefit”, one of the criteria necessary to register as a charity."

you will be suprised what things are tested on animals, my mum will not but anything from any company associated with animal testing. she doesnt even bank with certain to banks because they fund the companys. I try not to buy anything that do test but it is hard.
it might not be much, but its better than a kick in the teeth

I'm bumping this as I've just discovered that all the products in my house have probably had their ingredients tested on animals.

Thanks for that. Unfortunately ALL the mainstream brands test on animals! That's all the brands most households use and trust, especially the ones that offer free samples on a regular basis, or have promotions in supermarkets. These brands are sold everywhere and are often on promotion, hence why they have become leading brands.
I buy Superdrug and Co-Ops own brands, as none of their own brand toiletries or household products have been tested on animals. Their products have also been BUAV approved. Co-Op do a great eco-friendly range also.
