Which Companies Test On Animals?

You’d be surprised at how many companies test on animals in this day and age. Check out our long list of brands that test on animals to help you make more ethical choices when buying makeup, hair care, dental products, and skincare.

The brands mentioned in this list have either tested their cosmetics/products on animals themselves or paid for tests to be carried out by third parties on their behalf.

Companies That Test On Animals

Why do companies test on animals? Cosmetics companies are not forced to test their products on animals, they choose to. Some countries require products to be tested on animals before allowing the brand to enter the market. It all boils down to how much profit a brand can make in a lucrative market like China.

Types of products

This list includes brands that manufacture makeup, skincare, fragrance, laundry products, kitchen products like dishwashing detergent, dental products and oral care like toothpaste and mouthwash, razors, deodorant and men’s cologne, personal care products like soap, body wash, shampoo and conditioner, face wash, and acne treatments.

Other types of products that are tested on animals are condoms, pads and tampons,  baby powder, cleaning products like bench spray, disinfectants, sanitary wipes, anti-bacterial products, hand wash, and oven cleaner.

Are Cruelty-Free Brands with Parent Companies Still Ethical?

As demand increases for cruelty-free products, more and more brands are emerging. Major companies are stepping up to the plate to provide their own versions of cruelty-free products to consumers. 

While this is a step in the right direction, there are concerns with purchasing products from these conglomerates. In many cases, these companies still engage in harmful activities such as animal testing and unethically sourced ingredients. It’s critical for the ethically conscious consumer to know how to find the best options. 

These Companies Still Test On Animals.

Cruelty-Free Brands with Parent Companies

Major corporations can own and operate dozens of different brands. This means that a parent company may own a wide variety of cruelty-free brands alongside other brands that test their products on animals. This can be a conflicting position for people who are genuinely interested in purchasing ethically sourced products. 

On a positive note, the creation of cruelty-free brands and products means that the parent company recognizes the need to offer these items. By purchasing them, you are sending the company a message that they should continue this behavior. On the other hand, rewarding a company that has a dark side can also have negative consequences. 

Consumers should focus on finding an entirely ethical brand first. If one isn’t available, they can then purchase from brands owned by a parent company.
