Procter & Gamble Animal Testing Policy

Procter & Gamble’s animal testing policy can be found in the policies and practices section of their website. Here is what it says:

“At
P&G, we believe that eliminating animal testing is the right thing
to do. We do not test our products or ingredients on animals anywhere in
the world unless required by law. We are working hard to make it
obsolete. Therefore, we’ve invested more than $410 million in developing
alternative, non-animal testing methods and then getting them accepted
by regulators around the world. Today, we use more than 50 non-animal
alternatives, half of which were invented or co-invented by P&G. We
will continue working with the world’s top independent experts and
partnering with leading animal protection groups such as the Humane
Society of the U.S. to promote new alternatives research and regulatory
acceptance of existing alternatives. This is the only way to eliminate
all animal testing, globally.”

Wrap Up: Is Procter & Gamble Cruelty-Free?

No,
Procter & Gamble is not a cruelty-free brand. In their animal
testing policy, they state they do not test on animals. However, Procter
& Gamble chooses to sell in China, a country that requires imported
cosmetics to be tested on animals.

Therefore, Procter & Gamble is not considered to be cruelty-free and will be added to my list of brands that test on animals.

Gamble? Will you boycott them completely or use some of their
cruelty-free brands? Please leave your comments below!
