PETA’s Cruelty-Free Guide, Featuring Kelly Carlson

The following post is a guest post by PETA celebrity marketing coordinator Lauren Gordon.



You can catch Kelly Carlson on TV’s hot dramas Nip/Tuck and Melrose Place—and now she can also be found in your pocket! Kelly is the latest face to grace the cover of PETA’s cruelty-free shopping guide and encourages consumers to buy only products that have not been smeared in rabbits’ eyes, injected into mice, or force-fed to guinea pigs.

Each year, millions of animals are forced to undergo excruciatingly painful testing to evaluate consumer products. These tests are barbaric and unreliable. Plus, there are effective alternatives that don’t involve hurting animals. Buying products from only cruelty-free companies saves the lives of animals while sending a strong message to government and companies that animal testing is wrong and unnecessary.

Stash PETA’s cruelty-free shopping guide in your pocket or toss it into your purse before heading to the store. With so many great companies inside, being beautiful is a snap!

    Where is a link to printing the cruelty free guide that works. Does anyone have it?

  • Nadia V says:

    Does anyone know if when a product says “dermatologist tested” if that means it was not tested on animals.

  • destiny huddleston says:

    I completly agree! if you wouldnt strap a human being down to a metal table and do test on them, why is doing it to an animal so different?! Stop animal testing!

  • tardif cistoldi evelyne says:

    I agree with what is mentioned above ; no more animal testing. The animals suffer and that should not be allowed !!!

  • Marjorie Titchen says:

    For at least five decades I have asked store assistants whether any producr I was interesterd in was free from animal cruelty and very few know the truth.

    Products should be clearly marked, the information should include the testing history of the product and all ingredients so we can buy with a clear concience.

    The Freedom of Information Act should help.

    Thank you, thank you! What a wonderful idea. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the increasing numbers of products in my local stores that state “no animal testing of raw materials or final product”. It will be great to be able to confirm that with this list!

  • Rajani Iyer says:

    I am one of the animal lover. I am not getting happiness only because each day so many animals are killed.

  • Jen Mathews says:

    Hi there! Do you mind if I repost this on my cruelty-free beauty blog? (

    peta, with the advance of smartphones and the popularity of the iphone, how about instead creating a free app to download? i’m sure it would be a hit! Good Luck!

  • Saqib Ali says:

    It would be a great help to know about those companise which sell the cruelty free products. We can take it into our pockets and can get the information at any time we want.

    Thanx to PeTA
