Frequently Asked Questions
What types of companies are on the "Don't Test" list?
The list includes companies that make cosmetics, personal-care products, household-cleaning products, and other common household products. In the U.S., no law requires that these types of products be tested on animals, and companies can choose not to sell their products in countries such as China, where tests on animals are required for cosmetics and other products. Companies on this list should be supported for their commitment to manufacturing products without harming any animals. Companies that aren't on this list should be boycotted until they implement a policy that prohibits animal testing.
The list does not include companies that manufacture only products that are required by law to be tested on animals (e.g., pharmaceuticals and garden chemicals). Although 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 are better ways to determine product safety.
All companies that are included on PETA's cruelty-free list have signed PETA's statement of assurance or submitted a statement verifying that neither they nor their ingredient suppliers conduct, commission, or pay for any tests on animals for ingredients, formulations, or finished products.
How does a company get on the list?
Company representatives interested in having their company's name added to our cruelty-free list(s) must complete a short questionnaire and sign a statement of assurance verifying that they do not conduct, commission, or pay for any tests on animals for ingredients, formulations, or finished products and that they pledge not to do so in the future. PETA will then add qualifying companies to our pocket-sized Cruelty-Free Shopping Guide, our Shopping Guide brochure, and our online searchable database of cruelty-free companies.
How does a company license PETA's cruelty-free bunny logo?
Once certified as cruelty-free, companies also have the opportunity to share their cruelty-free commitment with consumers by licensing our cruelty-free bunny logo for use on product labels and promotional materials. This step helps consumers identify cruelty-free products at a glance while shopping. For a one-time licensing fee of $100, our logo may be used on companies' products, literature, in-store displays, and websites. To meet individual design needs, the logo may be used in any color combination or in black and white. For companies that sell an entirely 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-mail BeautyWithoutBunnies@peta.org. How do I know that these companies really don't test on animals?
Companies are putting their integrity on the line when they respond to consumers. A company that has publicly announced an end to tests on animals and states in writing that it doesn't test on animals would face a public relations disaster and potential lawsuits if it was caught lying.
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 deceptive, so be careful. No specific laws exist regarding cruelty-free labeling of products, and companies may not have the same high standards as PETA when labeling their products. PETA's requirements include ingredients, ingredient suppliers, formulations, and finished products. A company that claims not to test on animals but that doesn't appear on PETA's list may have eliminated tests on animals for finished products but not for ingredients. 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 send a copy of the statement to PETA. We will contact the company to see whether it meets our cruelty-free criteria. Meanwhile, PETA recommends purchasing only products made by companies on our "Don't Test" list.
What if a company isn't on either of PETA's lists?
Some companies have refused to respond to specific questions about their testing practices. It appears likely that these companies do test on animals at some stage of product development, and their refusal to clarify their testing policies appears to be an attempt to mislead consumers.
Other companies may be new. If you find a company not included on our lists, please share the company's contact information with PETA so that we can contact the company directly.
