COMPANIES THAT DON’T TEST ON ANIMALS

 

 

 

The list includes cosmetics, personal care, and household cleaning product companies only. PETA’s Caring Consumer Project was founded upon the fact that no law requires animal testing of these types of products, so manufacturers of these products have no excuse for animal testing and should be boycotted until they change to a non-animal-testing policy.

The list does not include companies that manufacture only products that are required by law to be tested on animals (e.g., pharmaceuticals, automotive and garden chemicals, food additives, etc.). While PETA is opposed to all animal testing, our quarrel in those instances is less with the individual companies and more with the regulatory agencies that require animal testing. Nonetheless, it is important to let companies know that it is their responsibility to convince the regulatory agencies that there is a better way to determine product safety.

The "Don’t Test" list may include companies that manufacture both products that are and products that are not required to be tested on animals, but in order to be listed, each company has stated that it does not conduct any animal tests that are not required by law.

 

Companies listed either have signed PETA’s statement of assurance or provided a statement verifying that they do not conduct or commission any nonrequired animal tests on ingredients, formulations, or finished products and that they pledge not to do so in the future.

 

To a degree, the statement of assurance is a matter of trust. However, companies are putting their integrity on the line when they respond to consumers. A company that has publicly announced an end to its animal tests and states in writing that it doesn’t test on animals would face a public relations disaster (and potential lawsuits) if it were caught testing on animals. Companies are well aware that consumers are serious about the issue of animal testing, and they know that it would ruin the public’s confidence in their products if it were discovered that they were being dishonest about their animal-testing policies.

What about a product whose label says, ‘No Animal Testing,’ but whose manufacturing company is not on PETA’s ‘Don’t Test’ list?

Labels can be deceiving, so be careful. No specific laws exist regarding cruelty-free labeling of products, so companies can take liberties. While it is unlikely that a company would put blatantly false information regarding its animal-testing practices on its products, the statements it does make may not be fully informative and may indeed mislead consumers. For example, the label on Clairol’s Herbal Essence shampoo states that it is not tested on animals; Clairol, however, does test other products on animals. Many animal-testing companies have some cruelty-free products, but we must boycott all the companies’ products in order to pressure them into stopping all animal tests. If the label on a company’s product says that it is not tested on animals and the company isn’t on either of PETA’s lists, please share the company’s contact information with PETA so that we can formally inquire about the company’s animal-testing policy. Likewise, if you communicate with a company that claims to be cruelty-free but is not on our list, please ask for a statement in writing and copy the statement to PETA. We will communicate with the company to see if it meets all our cruelty-free criteria. Meanwhile, PETA recommends purchasing products made only by companies on our "Don’t Test" list.

Why do some companies’ product labels say, ‘No Animal Ingredients,’ when, in fact, they contain beeswax, lanolin, whey, etc.?

Some companies are not educated about or sensitive to the suffering of animals in the production of certain products that do not involve the actual slaughter of the animal. PETA attempts to educate these companies, but some have persisted in inaccurately labeling their products as free of animal ingredients even though it is a fact that honey, lanolin, etc., are animal products. Our advice is always to read the entire label before believing such a statement, and we encourage you to voice your complaints to these companies as well. For our free list of "Animal Ingredients and Their Alternatives," please contact PETA.

 

PETA’s "Do Test" and "Don’t Test" factsheets are updated approximately every two to four months to reflect additions (e.g., if we are informed of a new company’s non-animal-testing policy), deletions (e.g., if a non-animal-testing company is purchased by an animal-testing company or if a company goes out of business), changes in contact information, etc. These factsheets are based on the most current information available at the time of printing. Companies may have changed their animal-testing policies after this edition was printed.

PETA reserves the right to choose which companies will be included, based on company policy. Inclusion on any list is not an endorsement of a company or any of its products by PETA. Please contact PETA if you have any questions about the status of listed companies or if you know the address of a company that is not listed.

PETA also publishes product lists in two other formats: a pocket-sized cruelty-free shopping guide, updated twice yearly, and the Shopping Guide for Caring Consumers, an annually updated directory of companies that don’t test on animals, which includes lists of their products, coupons, and contact information. To order either, contact PETA.

List is not strict enough for me July 23, 2007 1:47 PM

The “Don’t Test” list may include companies that manufacture both products that are and
products that are not required to be tested on animals, but in order to be listed, each
company has stated that it does not conduct any animal tests that are not required by law.
Meaning that they could contain some of those nasty chemicals that by law have to be tested on animals. Those are exactly the chemicals you want to avoid.
Companies listed either have signed PETA’s statement of assurance or provided a
statement verifying that they do not conduct or commission any nonrequired animal tests
on ingredients, formulations, or finished products and that they pledge not to do so in the
future.

These companies DO test! April 02, 2008 9:43 PM

before you dive head over heels for a product, check leapingbunny.com to make sure that the product is 100% cruelty free. some companies do not test the final product on animals and slap the "no testing" icon on it just because half of it wasn't tested. also, look at the ingredients, because a lot of make-up and body products do contain animal by-products.
