Good Alternatives Exist!Modern technology has given us many methods of assessing the toxicity or irritancy of a chemical without relying on animal tests. Alternatives have been proven to be up to 75% more effective than animal tests in measuring effects in humans. We can easily stop hurting animals and make household products safely!
Alternatives to animals include use of cell cultures, corneal and skin tissue cultures, corneas from eye banks, and sophisticated computer and mathematical models, and these specific tests: Eytex, Skintex, EpiPack, Neutral Red Bioassay, Testskin, TOPKAT, Ames Test, Corrositix, Agarose Diffusion Method.
Please Contact the Companies that Animal Test!
Animal tests are not required by law for most household products, but some companies still use them. Despite all the technological advances, these companies refuse to change. Please boycott their products and let these biggest abusers know why by contacting them.
Please also mention in communications with the companies that if the company is contracting out the animal testing that does not exempt them from responsibility.Procter & Gamble:

The EPA and FDA require animal tests for pesticides, fertilizers, “antibacterial” or “germ killing” cleaners (EPA), and drugs, food additives and preservatives (FDA). (However, reactions to drugs, all animal-tested, kill 100,000 Americans per year, ranking drug reactions in the top 5 causes of death.) Please contact these agencies to ask that they eliminate animal testing and fund and develop non-animal tests.
