Types of Animal Testing

Avon
Avon

“Avon was the first major cosmetic company to end animal testing nearly 25 years ago and we do not test on animals today.” THE TRUTH: Avon theoretically may have stopped testing on animals 25 years ago, but they admit that they currently sell in countries that require animal testing by law.

PETA's online "Do Test" and "Don't Test" lists are updated frequently to reflect additions (e.g., if we are informed of a new company's policy prohibiting animal testing), deletions (e.g., if a company that doesn't test on animals is purchased by a company that tests on animals or if a company goes out of business), changes in contact information, etc.

Birds
Birds

An animal test is any scientific experiment or test in which a live animal is forced to undergo something that is likely to cause them pain, suffering, distress or lasting harm. Animal experiments are not the same as taking your companion animal to the vet.

Cats
Cats

More than 18,000 cats are abused in U.S. laboratories every year—in addition to the tens of thousands who are killed and sold to schools for cruel and crude classroom dissections. These cats are just as deserving of fulfilling lives and loving homes as the feline companions who purr on our laps.

Chimpanzees

In the early 1950s, the U.S. Air Force secured the capture of 65 young chimpanzees from Africa for use in military flight experiments at Holloman Air Force Base in Alamogordo, New Mexico. The descendants of these chimpanzees were used in infectious disease experiments and high-velocity seat-belt tests.

Iams pet Food
Iams pet Food

The pet food industry has been highly scrutinized for its animal testing, or vivisection, practices, in part due to the 2002-2003 undercover footage from a testing facility contracted by Iams.

Kleenex
Kleenex

We rely on Kleenex when we've got the sniffles, but Kleenex's parent company, Kimberly-Clark, relies on animal testing to make sure its products are safe for consumers. Other brands in the Kimberly-Clark family include Cottonelle bath tissues, Scott paper towels, Huggies, and Kotex.

Mice and Rats
Mice and Rats

But even though these animals feel pain and suffer as much as dogs, cats, and rabbits do, they are excluded from the meager federal Animal Welfare Act provisions that extend at least some protection to these other species. Because mice and rats are not protected by the law, experimenters don’t even have to provide them with pain relief.

Nonhuman Primates
Nonhuman Primates

Experiments involving non-human primates (NHPs) include toxicity testing for medical and non-medical substances; studies of infectious disease, such as HIV and hepatitis; neurological studies; behavior and cognition; reproduction; genetics; and xenotransplantation.

OPI
OPI

OPI used to be on PETA’s list of companies that do not test on animals, but this is no longer the case. Since Coty acquired OPI in 2010, the brand started selling in China. Coty’s animal testing policy is that they don’t test on animals except when required by law.

Post-it Notes
Post-it Notes

So while the adhesive used on post-it notes is likely tested on animals because that's what 3M does, I'm thinking that whatever you read was referring to post-it notes as a commonly known example of a 3M product.

Rabbits
Rabbits

Rabbits in Laboratories Rabbits are frequent victims of animal experimenters because they are mild-tempered and easy to handle, confine, and breed—more than 139,000 of them are abused in U.S. laboratories every year.

Trojan Condoms
Trojan Condoms

To ensure their effectiveness, condoms have to be duly tested for endurance and performance. The most ideal way to test a condom is of course, through a human model. But since there are many health and ethical considerations to that, animal models are used instead.

Vaseline

PETA's online "Do Test" and "Don't Test" lists are updated frequently to reflect additions (e.g., if we are informed of a new company's policy prohibiting animal testing), deletions (e.g., if a company that doesn't test on animals is purchased by a company that tests on animals or if a company goes out of business), changes in contact information, etc.

Victoria's Secret
Victoria's Secret

Recently, I discovered that retail giant Victoria’s Secret is no longer a cruelty free brand. They have an expanding beauty line that includes perfume, lotion, hair care, skin care, and cosmetics. For many years the brand has been cruelty free.

Windex
Windex

The magic glass cleaner, which cures every ailment according to My Big Fat Greek Wedding, is tested on animals to make sure it is safe for human use, as are many other SC Johnson products like Glade and Pledge. Labs test Windex on the eyes and skin of the animals to see if it is irritating and also test the effects of ingesting the product. While it might make you feel safer having it in the house, it doesn't do much for the peace of mind of animal activists.
