In a historic move for animals poisoned and killed in laboratories in China, Shanghai-based personal-care company Eco&more has become the very first Chinese company to join PETA’s cruelty-free list of companies that never test their products, formulations, or ingredients on animals.
Until recently, most Chinese cosmetics companies selling in China were required to pay for cruel tests on animals—but now, a change in the rules opens the door for domestic companies manufacturing certain types of products to avoid all animal tests. Eco&more worked with PETA to ensure that no animals have been or ever will be harmed for its Earth-friendly, plant-based cleaners, shampoos, lotions, and other home- and personal-care products.
“We welcome Eco&more as the very first Chinese company on PETA’s cruelty-free list, and we’re pleased that compassionate Chinese consumers have more options to choose from,” says PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo. “Eco&more is showing the world that there are companies in China that don’t want any part of poisoning animals in cruel tests.”
China still requires foreign companies to pay for tests on animals in order to sell their products there. Companies committed to staying cruelty-free—including NYX Cosmetics, Paula’s Choice, The Body Shop, Jack Black, Yes to Carrots, and others—pledged to stay out of the Chinese market entirely after discussions with PETA. And John Paul Mitchell Systems, Pangea Organics, Dermalogica, Juice Beauty, LOGOCOS Naturkosmetik, and Nature’s Gate pulled out of the Chinese market after talking with PETA.
Scientists funded in part by PETA continue to train Chinese government scientists in the use of non-animal tests for cosmetics ingredients.
