Frequently Asked Questions
What types of companies are on the "Don't Test" list?
The list only includes companies that make cosmetics, personal-care products, or household-cleaning products. PETA's Caring ConsumerProject was founded to help consumers choose products that don't contribute to animal suffering. No law requires that these types ofproducts be tested on animals.The list does not include companies that only manufacture products that are required by law to be tested on animals (e.g., pharmaceuticals,certain chemicals, etc.). While PETA opposes all tests on animals, consumer dollars are very powerful when regulations don't require animaltests. Nonetheless, it is important to let companies that are required to test on animals know that it is their responsibility to convince theregulatory agencies that there are better ways.All companies that are included on PETA's cruelty-free list have signed PETA's statement of assurance or provided a statement verifying thatneither they nor their ingredient suppliers conduct or commission any animal tests on ingredients, formulations, or finished products.
How does a company get on the list and license PETA's cruelty-free bunny logo?
Company representatives interested in having their company's name added to our cruelty-free list(s) must complete a short questionnaire andsign a statement of assurance verifying that they do not conduct or commission any animal tests on ingredients, formulations, or finishedproducts and that they pledge not to do so in the future. Upon receipt of these completed documents, PETA will add qualifying companies toour pocket-sized Cruelty-Free Shopping Guide and our online searchable database of cruelty-free companies.Once certified as cruelty-free, companies will have the opportunity to license our cruelty-free bunny logo. We continually hear fromconsumers who want to be able to identify cruelty-free products at a glance while shopping, and the use of our logo is the perfect way toreach them. For a one-time licensing fee of just $100, our logo can be used on companies' products, literature, in-store displays, andwebsites. To meet individual design needs, the logo may be used in any color combination or in black and white. For companies that sell anentirely vegan product line, a version that reads, "Cruelty-Free and Vegan," is also available.For more information or to request the necessary paperwork, please e-mailCaringConsumer@peta.org.
How do I know that these companies really don't test on animals?
To a certain extent, the statement of assurance is a matter of trust. However, companies are putting their integrity on the line when theyrespond to consumers. A company that has publicly announced an end to its animal tests and states in writing that it doesn't test on animalswould face a public relations disaster (and potential consumer fraud lawsuits) if it were caught testing on animals. Companies are well awarethat consumers are serious about the issue of animal testing, and they know that it would ruin the public's confidence in their products ifconsumers discovered that companies were being dishonest about their animal 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-free labeling of products, so companies can take liberties.While it is unlikely that a company would put blatantly false information about its animal testing practices on its products, the statements thatit does make might not be fully informative and might indeed mislead consumers. Please refer to PETA's cruelty-free lists for companies thathave met our stringent "no animal testing" standards.Many companies that do test on animals have some cruelty-free products, but we must boycott all the products of such companies in order topressure 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 oneither of PETA's lists, please share the company's contact information with PETA so that we can formally inquire about the company's animaltesting 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 inwriting and send a copy of 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, infact, the products 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 theactual slaughter of animals. PETA attempts to educate these companies, but some have persisted in inaccurately labeling their products asfree 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

How often are PETA's product lists updated?
PETA's online "Do Test" and "Don't Test" lists are updated frequently to reflect additions (e.g., if we are informed of a new company's policyprohibiting animal testing), deletions (e.g., if a company that doesn't test on animals is purchased by an animal testing company or if acompany goes out of business), changes in contact information, etc.PETA's printed version of theCruelty-Free Shopping Guideis updated approximately twice a year and is based on the most currentinformation available at the time of printing. Companies' animal testing policies can change after any given edition is printed. PETA reservesthe right to choose which companies will be included, based on companies' policies.
