What cosmetic companies test on animals?

I just read somewhere that my favorite perfume Ralph Lauren Rocks is a perfume that is tested on animals and I am against testing on animals for cosmetics purposes. So what are some brands that test on animals?


Sorry I deleted this same question by accident before!

Update 2:

Thanks for all the answers!!!

    Personally, I only use Neways products - they are safe, effective, not tested on animals and friendly for the environment (product & packaging). It is great to check out what companies are not testing on animals (I support that 100%) but more importantly, I think, find out if the cosmetics and personal care items you are using are doing YOU any harm. One great website (managed by the Environmental Working Group) which gives products ratings based on various criteria for their safety can be found at:

    Every product you use has been tested on animals at some point before it went on the market.
