Much of this information can be found in both DISSECTION | TESTING & VEGAN GUIDES, but I wanted to include an area specific to product testing and cruelty-free, vegan alternatives. Below please find and click the links to HUNDREDS of cruelty-free companies, and cruelty-free and vegan companies. Please note, companies may not test on animals but offer products that include animal ingredients, such as honey or milk, so it’s important to make certain you are getting BOTH vegan and cruelty-free products.There is an additional list of companies that do not test pet food, as well international animal-free circuses.

If you are looking for cruelty-free clothing, please see FUR-FREE RETAILERS | VEGAN RETAILERS or FUR | SKIN. If you are interested in cruelty-free eating (plant-based diets) and the environmental and nutritional benefits of plant-based diets (the diet portion of veganism), please see THE MORAL BASELINE or VEGAN GUIDES.

Frequently-Asked Questions

What 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 law requires that these types of products be tested on animals, so manufacturers of these products have no excuse for using animal testing. Companies that aren’t on this list should 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 statement verifying 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 are putting their integrity on the line when they respond to consumers. A company that has publicly announced an end to its animal tests and states in writing that it doesn’t test on animals would face a public relations disaster (and potential lawsuits) if it were caught testing on animals. Companies are well aware that consumers are serious about the issue of animal testing, and they know that it would ruin the public’s confidence in their products if consumers discovered that companies were being dishonest about their animal-testing policies.

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 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 that it does make might not be fully informative and might indeed mislead consumers. For example, the label on Clairol’s Herbal Essence shampoo states that it is not tested on animals; Clairol, however, does test other products on animals. Many animal-testing companies have some cruelty-free products, but we must boycott all the companies’ products in order to pressure 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 on either of PETA’s lists, please share the company’s contact information with PETA so that we can formally inquire about the company’s animal-testing 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 in writing 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, in fact, they 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 the actual slaughter of animals. PETA attempts to educate these companies, but some have persisted in inaccurately labeling their 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 believing such a statement, and we encourage you to voice your complaints to these companies as well. For our list of “Animal Ingredients and Their Alternatives,” please visit

How often are PETA’s product lists updated?

PETA’s “Do Test” and “Don’t Test” factsheets are updated approximately every month to reflect additions (e.g., if we are informed of a new company’s policy prohibiting animal testing), deletions (e.g., if a company that doesn’t test on animals is purchased by an animal-testing company or if a company goes out of business), changes in contact information, etc. These factsheets are based on the most current information available at the time of printing. Companies might have changed their animal-testing policies after this was printed.

PETA reserves the right to choose which companies will be included, based on companies’ policies. Inclusion on any list is not an endorsement by PETA of a company or 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. Those marked with an asterisk (*) manufacture strictly vegan products—made without animal ingredients, such as milk and egg byproducts, slaughterhouse byproducts, lanolin from sheep, honey, or beeswax (for a list of animal ingredients and their alternatives, please contact PETA or visit : These are also listed below, too). Companies without an asterisk might offer some vegan products. Some of the company names are followed by the name of their parent or subsidiary companies or by examples of products manufactured by that company.

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 t are currently observing a moratorium (i.e., current suspension of) on 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 the company 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 is 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 on the list is not the animal testing that they conduct that is required by law, 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 the 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 often resist progress and, instead of using human-relevant non-animal tests, choose to use animal tests because their results can be manipulated. Let companies know how you feel about this. See Sample Letter below.

Sample Letter Against Product Testing | Please modify, shorten

To Whom It Concerns,

I am shocked to learn that [Name of company] continues to support animal experimentation. Considered archaic and fundamentally flawed, product testing on animals lacks corporate legitimacy and social validation. Indeed, despite using deceptive statements and misleading assertions fabricated by clever marketing and publicity departments, companies that subject animals to product testing are NOT legally mandated to do so, and knowledgeable consumers are demanding discontinuation of such unnecessary and vicious tests. Furthermore, it is imperative to recognize the existence of ingredients that already have an established, proven safety record for human use. These products, such as those found on the FDA GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) list, can be utilized and manufactured in the absence of deliberately cruel and unwarranted animal experimentation. [Name of company]‘s blatant disregard for animals and its decision to not use GRAS ingredients exclusively is irresponsible and negligent.

Furthermore, your company’s attempt to foster an idea that consumers continually support animal experimentation due to some inaccurate notion that it will prevent them from being harmed is unprincipled. Product misuse and abuse can lead to harm regardless of how many animals are wrongfully killed during the product testing phase. In fact, corporate manipulation and exploitation of consumer fear by using deceptive advertising is not only unethical but it is also illegal. As such, as long as [Name of company] continues to unnecessarily and selfishly capitalize on the mutilation, torture, and death of animals, I will not financially support you; furthermore, I will share this information with family, friends, colleagues, and members of online communities as well.

Please make both the ethical and financially-responsible decision to discontinue animal experimentation immediately: join an increasing body of corporations who are listening to a concerned and attentive consumer population who refuse to be complicit in the inherently malicious industry of animal experimentation.

    I’m confused about one or two.. This list is different from PETA’s ‘do not test list’. For example, they have Clarins and Estée Lauder on their ‘do test list’. They don’t have forever Living on either list – which is the one I’m most interested in at the moment. I know Forever Living state that they do not test their products on animals but does that include all of the ingredients? I’m really interested to find a definite answer on this.


    • May 1, 2015 10:16 am

      I would refer to PETA’s list; this is a copy of PETA’s list, but their list would be the most recent update. As for Forever Living, I found this resource but cannot attest to its authenticity, and it seems as if they utilize bees:

      I would suggest contacting them directly for the most reliable information, but they may not be the most forthright.

      Sorry that wasn’t too helpful, let us know what you find out, thanks.
