Companies That Don't Test on AnimalsFrequently Asked QuestionsWhat types of companies are on the 'Don't Test' list?
The list only includes companies that make cosmetics and personal-care and household-cleaning products. PETA's Caring Consumer Project was founded because no lawrequires that these types of products be tested on animals, so manufacturers of theseproducts have no excuse for using animal testing. Companies that aren't on this listshould be boycotted until they implement a policy that prohibits animals testing.
How does a company get on the list?
Companies listed either signed PETA's statement of assurance or provided a statementverifying that they do not conduct or commission any animal tests on ingredients,formulations, or finished products and that they pledge not to do so in the future.
How do I know that these companies really don't test on animals?
To a degree, the statement of assurance is a matter of trust. However, companies areputting their integrity on the line when they respond to consumers. A company that haspublicly announced an end to its animal tests and states in writing that it doesn't test onanimals would face a public relations disaster (and potential lawsuits) if it were caughttesting on animals. Companies are well aware that consumers are serious about the issueof animal testing, and they know that it would ruin the public's confidence in theirproducts if consumers discovered that companies were being dishonest about theiranimal-testing policies.
What about a product whose label says, 'No Animal Testing,' but whosemanufacturing company is not on PETA's 'Don't Test' list?
Labels can be deceiving, so be careful. No specific laws exist regarding cruelty-freelabeling of products, so companies can take liberties. While it is unlikely that a companywould put blatantly false information about its animal-testing practices on its products,the statements that it does make might not be fully informative and might indeed misleadconsumers. For example, the label on Clairol's Herbal Essence shampoo states that it isnot tested on animals; Clairol, however, does test other products on animals. Manyanimal-testing companies have some cruelty-free products, but we must boycott all thecompanies' products in order to pressure them into stopping all animal tests. If the labelon a company's product says that it is not tested on animals and the company isn't oneither of PETA's lists, please share the company's contact information with PETA so thatwe can formally inquire about the company's animal-testing policy. Likewise, if youcommunicate with a company that claims to be cruelty-free but is not on our list, pleaseask for a statement in writing and send a copy of the statement to PETA. We willcommunicate 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 theproduction of certain products that do not involve the actual slaughter of animals. PETAattempts to educate these companies, but some have persisted in inaccurately labelingtheir 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 believingsuch a statement, and we encourage you to voice your complaints to these companies aswell. For our list of "Animal Ingredients and Their Alternatives," please visitCaringConsumer.com.
How often are PETA's product lists updated?
PETA's "Do Test" and "Don't Test" factsheets are updated approximately every month toreflect additions (e.g., if we are informed of a new company's policy prohibiting animaltesting), deletions (e.g., if a company that doesn't test on animals is purchased by ananimal-testing company or if a company goes out of business), changes in contactinformation, etc. These factsheets are based on the most current information available atthe time of printing. Companies might have changed their animal-testing policies afterthis was printed.PETA reserves the right to choose which companies will be included, based oncompanies' policies. Inclusion on any list is not an endorsement by PETA of a companyor any of its products. 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.The following companies manufacture products that ARE NOT tested on animals.
