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.

P&G scientists invented the first non-animal alternative method for skin allergy testing, which was recently approved from authorities. This method marks a milestone in eliminating the need for animal testing.
For many years, scientists around the world have used test tube experiments to mimic certain safety effects. However, these experiments often falsely indicate a risk where there is none. Led by P&G scientists, a group of experts developed skin models which allow much more accurate use of non-animal alternative methods.
Our efforts to develop alternatives to animal testing is a long journey that began several decades ago. We have achieved a lot, but we still have more work to do. We will continue our research efforts until alternatives are available for all safety questions, and accepted by global regulators.
At P&G, we work with international animal welfare organizations, academia, industry experts and regulators to both develop and drive the regulatory acceptance of alternatives to animal testing.
