What The F... @wetnwildbeauty?! πŸ˜’ This is why cruelty-free consumers have trust issues!
Incredibly sadden by the news and confirmation that @wetnwildbeauty products are indeed sold in mainland China where animal testing for cosmetics is required by law πŸ’” I have removed Wet N Wild from our cruelty-free directory lists, but please check out @logicalharmony and @crueltyfreekitty's posts for details about the recent news. A summary simply isn’t enough to explain everything that’s been brought to light and how Wet N Wild was caught lying about selling in China πŸ˜‘

Be gentle with yourself on your journey to living and choosing cruelty-free. Know that you'll probably make mistakes along the way and that's OK. Give yourself permission to learn and grow, and to strive for progress, not perfection. It's not a race or competition to see who can be the best cruelty-free consumer, go at your own pace and always remember what you're doing IS making a difference to animals and the planet! πŸ°πŸŒπŸ’•// πŸ“Έ via @fequalshq

Procter & Gamble (P&G) Brands – Which Ones are Cruelty-Free or Sold in China?

This post may contain affiliate links.

Is Procter & Gamble (P&G) cruelty-free?

Answer:

No. Procter & Gamble (P&G) is not a cruelty-free corporation, some of their products are sold in Mainland China where animal testing is required for all imported cosmetics.

Procter & Gamble’s Animal Testing Policy (2018)

Source: P&G

P&G claims they do not test their products or ingredients on animals, unless it is required by law.

P&G then goes on to explain that in some countries they sell to, like China, still require animal tests to ensure the safety of certain products and ingredients. Since P&G has decided to sell their products in these countries, they must have their products and ingredients tested on animals.

I recognize and appreciate P&G’s efforts in funding and developing non-animal testing methods and also P&G admitting that they “strongly believe that the majority of animal tests required by these authorities are scientifically unnecessary“.

But if P&G doesn’t agree with these animal tests, why are they choosing to sell their products under these conditions then? No one is forcing P&G to sell in China, that’s their decision to do so when many cruelty-free brands have chosen not to sell in China for these very reasons, why can’t P&G do the same if they truly don’t agree with having their products tested on animals?

Source: P&G

Ultimately, I would not consider Procter & Gamble or any of P&G’s brands that are sold in Mainland China to be cruelty-free because some of their ingredients and products are required to be tested on animals.

It should be noted that two of P&G’s brands are certified cruelty-free by PETA; First Aid Beauty and Herbal Essences. However here at ethical elephant, we do not consider Herbal Essences to be cruelty-free as their products are sold in Mainland China.

When a corporation, as large as P&G, has over 50+ brands in its portfolio, it’s sometimes hard to tell which brands are selling in China, or certified cruelty-free, or brands that naturally inherit their parent company’s animal testing policy.

List of P&G Brands

I wanted to list out all of Procter & Gamble’s brands to help with:

  • Figuring out which of P&G’s brands are cruelty-free (Short answer: None!)
  • Knowing which of P&G’s brands are sold in Mainland China
  • If you don’t want to support anything associated with Procter & Gamble, then use this list as a reference as you should avoid all the brands on this list

Sold in China – This brand distributes its products in China where animal testing is required by law

PETA Certified – This brand is PETA Certified Cruelty-Free

    As a consumer, I care very much that animals not suffer for the pleasure of human consumption. I try to consciously avoid and scrutinized all my purchases from cosmetics and household products to my food sources. It matters to me very much. And as we know, animal testing is antiquated. I am very surprised that as advanced as China is with regard to technology, they still participate in such barbaric practices. I feel it is an excuse they use to be cruel to placate to uninformed and uneducated society. I will not purchase products from US companies that distribute to countries that still test on animals.

    They said on one of their products I page they don’t engage in animal testing. Not with this comment though. I told them when I see a cruelty free logo I’d believe it.

      Amy, that was a great response!!! Lack of Cruelty Free logo means no go with our purchasing dollars.
