Unilever is taking a stance on products tested on animals, and consumers will approve. First, Dove—one of the most widely recognized and conveniently available personal care product brands in the world—has banned all tests on animals anywhere in the world. They’ve just been added to PETA’s cruelty-free database. ?

Dove will begin using our cruelty-free bunny logo on its packaging in 2019.

On top of that, consumer goods giant Unilever—which owns the Dove brand—has banned all tests on animals not required by law for all the rest of its products. Unilever will be added to our list of companies that are “Working for Regulatory Change.” This category recognizes companies that test on animals only when explicitly required by law, are completely transparent with PETA about what tests on animals have been conducted and why, and work to promote the development, validation, and acceptance of non-animal testing methods.
