google should shed some light on things, as my knowledge on gilette is way out of date. they used animal testing to a horrific degree when i was first getting involved in AR in the 90s. i have no idea whether they still do - but i'd rather shave with a blow torch than use gilette, or any of the brands from their stable. fuck them.
personally i use sainsbury's (UK supermarket) own-brand razors, although i'd like to use a straight razor, once i can source a vegan strop...
for balance though, i should add that gilette don't appear on this list: http://www.uncaged.co.uk/crueltyfree.htm
