Proctor & Gamble stopped animal testing on all of their beauty products a few years ago, but some of their suppliers continued to test their ingredients on rabbits and rodents.

The Humane Society estimates a half million animals are still used in product testing, much of it happening in China and Europe. The cosmetic company currently sells its products in China, where animal testing is still mandatory for some products, but they are said to be working within Chinese regulations to avoid animal testing.

Herbal Essence is working with PETA International Science Consortium to develop safe methods of testing products that do not involve testing on animals. Herbal Essence will soon be able to have the cruelty free bunny logo on all of their hair care products.

Vice President of Global Herbal Essences, Lisa Jennings claims that the company has been a pioneer in alternative testing methods that don’t use animals. Jennings says that the company is proud to have passed PETA’s rigorous verification process in order to be included on their list of cruelty-free brands.

Proctor & Gamble aren’t the only company to fall in line thanks to a little pressure from PETA. Dove banned the testing of its products on animals last year and are currently in the process of changing their packaging to show PETA’s cruelty-free bunny logo.

With the Herbal Essence vows to stop testing products on animals, there’s hope more companies will look forward to attain the cruelty free logo.

    Such wonderful news! It’s only a matter of time before the remaining few holdouts follow suit. There is no excuse for testing “beauty” products on animals.
