Frequently Asked Questions
Why are these companies included on the 'Do Test' list?
The following companies manufacture products that ARE tested on animals. Those marked with a # are currently observing a moratorium on (i.e., current suspension of) animal testing. Please encourage them to announce a permanent ban. Listed in parentheses are examples of products manufactured by either the company listed or, if applicable, its parent company. For a complete listing of products manufactured by a company on this list, please visit the company's Web site or contact it directly for more information. Companies on this list may manufacture individual lines of products without animal testing (e.g., Clairol claims that its Herbal Essences line are not animal tested). They have not, however, eliminated animal testing from their entire line of cosmetics and household products.
Similarly, companies on this list may make some products, such as pharmaceuticals, that are required by law to be tested on animals. However, the reason for these companies? inclusion is not the required animal testing that they conduct, but rather the animal testing of personal care and household products that is not required by law.
What can be done about animal tests required by law?
Although animal testing of pharmaceuticals and certain chemicals is still mandated by law, the arguments against using animals in cosmetics testing are still valid when applied to the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. These industries are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency, respectively, and it is the responsibility of the companies that kill animals in order to bring their products to market to convince the regulatory agencies that there is a better way to determine product safety. PETA is actively working on this front by funding development and validation of non-animal test methods and providing input through our involvement on government advisory committees at both the national and international levels. Companies resist progress because the crude nature of animal tests allows them to market many products that might be determined to be too toxic if cell culture tests were used. Let companies know how you feel about this.
To Australian citizens - Please note that Unilever is a USA company sells dozens of highly advertised products in Australia. In the last four months QGAR has made a number of enquiries to Unilever but they do not reply as to what types of tests they conduct on animals, but admit to animal testing. Proctor and Gamble make everything from face creams to potato chips in Australia as well as globally. To view companies in Au which do not test on animals - please view www.choosecrueltyfree.org.au/
