Compassionate Shopping Guide

Companies that do not test finished products, ingredients, or formulations on animals.
The Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC)
developed the Corporate Standard of Compassion for Animals (Standard), an internationally recognized non-animal-testing standard. Formed in 1996, CCIC is comprised of these leading animal protection groups: American Anti-Vivisection Society, Chair American Humane Association Beauty Without Cruelty, U.S.A. Doris Day Animal League The Humane Society of Canada The Humane Society of the United States MSPCA’s Center for Laboratory Animal Welfare New England Anti-Vivisection Society The Standard of Compassion for Animals is recognized in the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Finland, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and the United States of America. New U.S. and Canadian companies are continually being welcomed to the CCIC Standard. CCIC periodically publishes updated editions of our Compassionate Shopping Guide, but in the meantime you can look for newly approved companies by regularly checking our up-to-date list at

This is Not Just a List, It's a Standard
CCIC's Standard is the only criterion to trust for cosmetics, personal care, and household products that are genuinely not tested on animals. That is because approved companies have done far more than simply issue a testing policy, which can so often be misleading. If a company is listed here, it's because it has been able to prove, according to CCIC's Standard, that its products and ingredients are not tested on animals.
Any company that fails to abide by CCIC’s strict criteria will be removed from the Compassionate Shopping Guide. If a previously listed company no longer appears, it could be for one of the following reasons:

About this Shopping Guide
Each year, an untold number of animals continue to suffer and die in laboratories in the United States and Canada in tests for products such as shampoo, make-up, and laundry detergent. Animals continue to suffer elsewhere around the world, and products tested on animals continue to be imported and sold across the globe. There has been some success, as animal testing for cosmetics has been banned in a number of European Union (EU) countries and an EU-wide ban is on its way. We can make a difference here in the U.S. and Canada, too! The following U.S. and Canadian companies manufacture cosmetics, personal care, and household products with compassion! They have each signed the Standard, a pledge that they must:  Not conduct or commission animal tests;  Not purchase from suppliers ingredients that have been tested on animals after a fixed cut-off date; and  Verify the strict implementation of their fixed cut-off date with supplier assurances. This is the only international program of its kind. It is the Standard that consumers can truly trust. The companies listed have shown that they care about animals. You can show that you care by choosing to buy their products. Companies marked with a heart ❤ are the original signatories to the Standard of 1996. Companies marked with a diamond  have chosen to license the logo, so you can find our international ‘leaping bunny’ on their products or in-store displays. Companies marked with a square ■ are cruelty free subsidiaries of parent companies that do not comply with the Standard. Companies that manufacture in Canada are marked with a flag

 Company does not/no longer abides by one or more elements of CCIC’s Standard;  Company consistently failed to respond satisfactorily to invitations by CCIC to prove its stated animal testing policy;  Company is no longer in the cosmetics and/or household product business;  Company no longer manufactures in the U.S. or Canada; or  Company chooses not to participate in the program.

Interested in Doing More to Help Animals?
You may wish to consider the following:  Write a letter to a favorite company you’d like to see on this list.  Visit for a sample letter, and urge the company to join the CCIC program.  Thank a current CCIC company by dropping them a note and expressing your appreciation for their commitment to products manufactured with compassion and their ongoing efforts to abide by the CCIC Standard.  Request a free Compassionate Shopping Guide for a friend and share your interest in compassionate consumerism.  Give cruelty-free gift baskets, and fill your gift with CCIC-approved products. Include a note card that says all the products are free from animal testing.
