A company may not be found on this Web site because it has a parent company that tests on animals, because we have no information on its policies, or because it claims to be cruelty-free but has not yet signed the PETA statement of assurance (this must be done in order to be listed).
You can inquire with us regarding companies not listed or write to them directly and ask the following questions as an interested consumer:
· Does the company test its products, ingredients, or formulations on animals?
· Does it contract with an outside laboratory to conduct animal testing?
· If it does not use animal tests, does this decision reflect a permanent commitment to use only humane alternatives?
· If the company is cruelty-free, are its administrators familiar with PETA’s cruelty-free company program?
If you are assured that the company maintains a cruelty-free policy, please ask to have this confirmed in writing and forward correspondence and/or responses to PETA’s Caring Consumer Project. We will contact the company’s representatives and encourage them to sign the PETA statement of assurance. Your efforts will not only help PETA’s campaign but, by contacting companies as a concerned consumer, will also demonstrate to corporations that animal testing is an urgent issue that affects consumer buying trends.
