Beiersdorf, the organisation behind the NIVEA brand, does not test on animals. As a global company, all our affiliates including Australia and New Zealand, are aligned on this stance. We believe animal testing is not required to prove the safety and effectiveness of our products.In China, however, animal testing is mandated by law for the official registration and certification of the safety of certain product categories.
In this case, the tests are conducted by local institutions authorised by the state not by the companies selling the product. Our goal is to convince these authorities that animal testing for cosmetic products is unnecessary and to advocate for the international acceptance of alternative testing methods.Beiersdorf is actively working on the development and recognition of alternative methods to animal testing.
For more than 20 years we have engaged with expert panels and associations on in-vitro procedures and are one of the leading and most well-known and accepted research companies in the world.We are working together with external partners such as the European cosmetics association, Cosmetics Europe, and the EPAA (European Partnership for Alternative Approaches to Animal Testing), toward the development and recognition of alternative testing methods that will replace animal testing.
We are also actively advocating for the worldwide acceptance of existing animal test-free alternative methods by respective authorities. Further, we support both in terms of personnel and financially, the scientific efforts to fill the gaps where alternative methods are not yet available.Further information can be found on the Beiersdorf websiteBeiersdorf, the organisation behind the NIVEA brand, shares your concern about palm oil.
We are aware of our responsibilities towards the environment and society, and would like you to know that we do not use palm oil directly in our NIVEA products.Some of the ingredients used in our products are surfactants and emulsifiers that do contain oils from various vegetable sources, including palm, coconut, avocado and canola.Beiersdorf does not directly purchase palm oil for the manufacture of cosmetics and produces no reprocessed palm oil or palm kernel oil-based materials.
But as it is customary in the cosmetics industry, we use essential auxiliary materials such as emulsifiers and surfactants (fatty alcohols, fatty acids and glycerides) in a series of products. These materials are typically produced from mineral and plant oils; plant sources include coconut oil, rapeseed oil, palm oil and palm kernel oil.As a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), Beiersdorf supports the extraction of sustainable farming methods of palm oil.
In both cooperation and disputes with our suppliers, we are trying to ensure that in the future only sustainably produced, certified palm oil/palm kernel oil is used in the manufacture of our ingredients. Until such time as our suppliers are able to acquire only sustainable palm oil/palm kernel oil, we purchase palm oil/palm kernel oil certificates (Book & Claim). For this purpose, we have assembled a team whose task it is to develop a process for achieving this objective and to guarantee its implementation.
Producers that manage their oil plantations sustainably and are eco-friendly are given certifications by organisations such as the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil. Further information can be found on the Beiersdorf website.See Also: Westside Animal Hospital Augusta Ga
The zoo is going to be a fantastic alternative put if you want to have animals photographs without owning a visit to safari in summer time. You can get their photos while in the safe and sound bench that is definitely obtainable in the vicinity of the cages. To produce you success in taking the images of animals you want, it is possible to follow the following tips.
From a jungle of rain-washed pines and junipers spearing the recent blueness of the Florida sky, ran a little, tawny-haired boy. His bare ft, extending from his overalled legs, crackled from the fallen palmettos. He leaped to the air, flinging his arms toward a flock of white doves circling higher than him.
The following list consists of companies that DO test on animals. Its main source is PETA, and I’ve supplemented it with my own research. I’ve organized the brands by category but you’ll notice that most of these brands are owned by a few big corporations. These corporations are L’Oreal, Estee Lauder, Procter & Gamble, Clorox, Johnson & Johnson, S.C. Johnson, Colgate-Palmolive, Reckitt Benckiser, Church & Dwight, Unilever, and Dial/Henkel.
These companies all have poor ethics when it comes to animal testing, and are making no efforts to change their policies. There are however two exceptions, the first one being Colgate-Palmolive, which have agreed to gradually change their policy. PETA currently lists Colgate-Palmolive as “working toward regulatory changes to reduce the number of animals used for testing”. This does NOT mean the company is or will be cruelty-free in the near future! It’s only a small step in the right direction, and the company still DOES test on animals at this point.
The second exception consists of a few select brands. While in most cases, brands that are owned by companies that test on animals are not cruelty-free, L’Oreal is one of the few companies to own brands that have kept their ethical stances and have remained cruelty-free under the ownership. The same goes for Burt’s Bees (now owned by Clorox but still cruelty-free) and Tom’s of Maine (Colgate-Palmolive).
All the brands mentioned on this list, however, do test on animals. Please note that this list is not exhaustive. This list only includes companies that claimed they test on animals at some point, or sell in China; there are many other companies who remained silent about their animal testing policy.
