Avon for Animals

Avon does not test products or ingredients on animals anywhere in the world. We have been working for acceptance of non-animal methods for three decades. In 2019 Avon became the first global beauty company* selling in China to stop all animal testing of ingredients and across all its brands**.

A global stand against animal testing.

Our goal is to deliver products to meet our customers’ needs without compromising our commitment to animal welfare, our high product safety standards or our adherence to regulatory requirements. By investing in how we develop innovation for China and in some cases changing distribution channels, we have been able to deliver this landmark change. Globally, none of Avon’s products will be tested on animals.

Fund for the Replacement of Animals in Medical Experiments (FRAME)

In Europe, Avon has partnered with FRAME for 30 years.

“FRAME is dedicated to the development of new, valid and ethical scientific methods that will replace the need for laboratory animals in medical and scientific research, education and testing.  Avon’s decision to stop testing in China sends an important message to the global cosmetics industry that animal testing for cosmetics is unnecessary and unacceptable, and that we must push for global acceptance of alternative techniques that are scientifically valid and have human relevance.”

Amy Beale, Scientific Liaison Officer at FRAME

Institute for In Vitro Sciences (IIVS)

Avon is a founding member of IIVS’s Industry Council for the Advancement of Regulatory Acceptance of Alternatives (ICARAA), a working group that promotes specific activities designed to accelerate the adoption of non-animal methods by government agencies such as the Chinese Food & Drug Administration.

“Avon has partnered with IIVS for over twenty years to develop and utilise novel in vitro testing platforms to ensure the safety of their products. These successful approaches have been adopted by other companies in the industry. Additionally, Avon has supported the IIVS Education and Outreach programmes to promote the use and acceptance of these methods worldwide”
