We do not perform, nor do we ever commission any third parties on our behalf to perform animal testing on our products or ingredients. Our safety assessment of cosmetic ingredients is based on the use of recognized alternatives to animal testing, the use of existing safety data and, increasingly, the sharing of such data from and with other industries.

We continue to strive for the development and acceptance of additional reliable non-animal testing methods and will continue to vigorously support the research, implementation and improvement of alternatives to animal testing, especially for those more complex tests for which no alternative methods have been established. For this purpose we actively participate in research programs in Europe and the USA by dedicating funding, time, resources and scientific expertise. The common goal of all these efforts is to completely eliminate animal testing.”

Lee Stafford

The Quantum Beauty Company does not initiate animal tests on finished products or ingredients either directly or indirectly. All ingredients used are carefully monitored and suppliers are asked to provide written evidence of the date they were last tested.

The recently adopted EU Cosmetics Directive confirmed the ban on the animal testing of ingredients used in cosmetic products with a cut off date of 11th March 2009. After this date ingredients used in cosmetic products must not be tested on animals. It is a requirement of new product development that only ingredients that comply with this testing ban are used in our products.

It is in fact the case that the majority of ingredients have never been tested on animals or for those that have been tested on animals this was done prior to 1990 to ensure product safety parameters.

The Quantum Beauty Company is against the suffering endured by animals when ingredients and products are tested. We support organisations who are developing alternative methods of testing which satisfy the legal requirements, without using animals.

The finished product is never tested on animals.

Puig

It is crucial for Puig to guarantee the quality of the cosmetics we conceive and to ensure out customers that these products are perfectly safe and innocuous.

In order to do this, Puig has been developing alternatives to animals testing for many years now.

Therefore, since 1990, Puig has not used any animals whatsoever to test the safety and innocuousness of its products. In order to achieve that, we use scientific studies and databases that enable us to evaluate the safety and innocuousness of the ingredients used the conception of our products. The experience we have acquired in this domain allows us to guarantee optimal quality without animal testing.

We also use a variety of in vitro scientific testing methods, combined with in vivo test on individuals. These methods have been approved or and declared in compliance with standards of official European organisms (e.g. the Phototoxicity text was approved by the European Centre for Validation of Alternative Method, ECVAM, and integrated into section B.41, Annex V of the Council’s Directive 67/548/EEC, April 2000).

Puig can therefore provide consumers with top-quality cosmetics while guaranteeing their absolute safety.

Soap & Glory

We understand that animal testing is a key concern for a growing number of consumers and at Soap & Glory, we can confidently state that all of our formulations are safety and efficacy tested on people. (Although you might argue about that if you’d seen the condition of some of their feet. YEEEESH. )

At Soap & Glory, we uphold very strict guidelines through our regularly audited manufacturing partners that uphold the ‘no animal testing’ policy. As well, we are fortunate that our biggest retail partner – Boots The Chemists- upholds the very same standards by funding through an organisation called FRAME, which is the FUND for the REPLACEMENT of ANIMALS in MEDICAL EXPERIMENTS) in an effort to eliminate reliance in the industry on animal testing That said – and because we feel it necessary to be transparent and to educate EVERYBODY- it’s important for you to know that no retailer or manufacturer can categorically state that ‘none’ of their raw materials or ingredients have –at some time in the past- been tested on animals. The majority of individual raw materials used in cosmetics today have been through some kind of animal testing process.

At Soap & Glory, we absolutely do not test our formulations on animals, however we can’t say that each and every ingredient that goes into them has not, at some point historically, been cleared for human use, by animal testing. We hope this answers your question. If you need any more information about animal testing, we’d suggest you contact Colipa, the European Cosmetics Directive association, via www.colipa.eu.

  1. Has this list been updated in regard to companies that themselves do not test but allow their products to be tested by others for the Chinese market?

  2. What do some of them mean (like smashbox) they only test when required by law?……why doesnt all the others like “like silk” etc don’t have that “only when required by law” so then its still a choice of the company…..required by law doesn’t apply for all it seems…why?…..makes me wonder if some of these companies are being true ?

    • Yes, that’s a good question, and to be honest it is a bit of a grey area- in this circumstance it is really up to the individual to decide whether they want to trust that statement. This is the entire reason that I have included these statements- it annoys me that lists of PETA and other organizations do not include the evidence they have to support their claims that a company tests or doesn’t test, so I wanted to include my evidence in my lists. I feel that the people who read should be able to make up their minds about how safe they want to be in their products. I know the other non-profits like PETA probably do know more than me on the matter, so I include their judgement as well, to better help you in your decisions.

      In the case of Smashbox, they do have this slightly nebulous statement, but the PETA has approved them. My best guess is that they are not currently using animal testing, but have that clause in their statement so that if something does come up they have an exit hatch legally.

      I hope this rather long-winded answer helps!
      Best,
      Lilla

  3. In my experience whenever a beauty company says they only test when required to do so by law that means they have registered their products with the Chinese SFDA so have paid to test their products on animals.

    Animal testing in China is a racket. The labs that do it are dependent on the income from mandatory animal testing and would go out of business if the law changed. That’s the real reason the Chinese Government hasn’t changed the law.

    Companies are selling in China because it is a huge untapped market and they are willing to obscure or lie to their customers about animal testing because the prize is so big.

    It is only when European and American retailers start listening to their customers and clear these brands from their shelves that beauty companies will realize they have a choice: sell in China or sell in Europe and USA, but you can’t do both.

    That’s why it is gratifying to hear that Whole Foods Market has started to delist brands that animal test by selling in China. I hope other retail chains soon follow their lead.

    • Yes I agree with you. I knew it was something along those lines but I never did understand why the Chinese would a more expensive system mandatory, but if it is protecting a sector that makes more sense. Thank you for the information!

  4. Marks and Spencer is a large UK retailer that does much marketing around its BUAV certification and has a comprehensive anti-animal testing policy.
    http://plana.marksandspencer.com/we-are-doing/natural-resources/stories/26/

    I was annoyed that on every page of the M&S beauty website, which carries bought in brands, the following statement appeared:

    “All our skincare ranges are cruelty-free and BUAV approved.”

    I wrote to M&S, copied to BUAV, pointing out that only a few of the brands they carried were BUAV approved and at least one, Jurlique, was open about its animal testing.

    I received the following reply.

    “Thank you for emailing us about our beauty products. As a member of our Board of Directors personal team, I am responding on their behalf.

    I am sorry that you have had cause to contact us about our non branded beauty products and that you are concerned that they may be tested on animals.

    However, I want to reassure you that although they do not have BUAV approval, I can confirm that none of them are tested on animals. Having said this, I do appreciate why you are concerned and want to assure you that your comments have been recorded for the attention of our Beauty Buying team. I know they will carefully consider the points you have raised.

    On behalf of our Board of Directors, many thanks for getting in touch.”

    I replied with a link to the PETA website regarding Jurlique. I also provided information on other brands stocked by M&S and sold to China. I did not get a response. BUAV did not respond either.

    In December I wrote to the UK Advertising Standards Authority, to complain about the false statements in relation to animal testing on the M&S website.

    The ASA regulates marketing statements on UK websites and can be helpful when companies prefer to ignore “difficult” issues.

    I received the following reply:

    “we contacted the advertisers to discuss the points you raised. They explained that the claim “All our skincare ranges are cruelty-free and BUAV approved” was intended to refer only to M&S branded beauty products, which they confirmed were all BUAV approved.

    They also directed us to the BUAV website where they are described as one of several “CRUELTY-FREE CERTIFIED COMPANIES”, and stated that although they do supply some Jurlique products, the only animal-tested Jurlique products are those sold in China, and not by Marks and Spencer.

    That said, they acknowledged that the claim “All our skincare ranges” could potentially be interpreted as referring to all skincare ranges they sell, rather than just to all Marks and Spencer skincare ranges.

    They’ve therefore assured us that when they use the claim in future, the wording will be changed to “All M&S own-brand skincare ranges are cruelty-free and BUAV approved”.

    Though we don’t think their advertising breached the CAP Code in this instance, and so we won’t take any investigative action, we believe this amendments would make the claim clearer and so we’ve welcomed their assurance.”

    M&S have now removed the statement “All our skincare ranges are cruelty-free and BUAV approved.” from their website.

    I suggested to the ASA that M&S fobbed them off with the demonstrably false claim that Jurlique sells different products to M&S to those it sells in China.

    For instance:

    http://www.jurlique.com.cn/product.php?pid=524

    http://www.marksandspencer.com/Jurlique-Moisture-Antioxidant-Complex-Moisturising/dp/B002F7EQJ2

    If I get a response I will post it up.

  5. Hi! Do you have any information on LÓreal? I know they work on Invitroskin but, do they still perform animal testing on ther stages other than the final product?

    • L’Oreal is a tricky one… I believe the situation is that they are reducing animal testing but they have not cut it out of all operations. They sell products to the EU so those specific products at least have to be clean but I’m pretty sure they also sell to China… PETA still has them listed as testing, if that helps in anyway. I don’t actually have access to observe laboratory conditions, so I can’t say for sure, just that there is a distinct possibility that they do somewhere in their operations. I hope this helps somewhat!
