Victory: Indian Soap and Detergent Manufacturers Banned From Testing on Animals

The Indian government has prohibited soap and detergent associations from testing on animals. Now’s the time to call on the EU to introduce a similar ban.

In the final step of a process initiated by PETA India in 2014, compassionate consumers in India will be able to shop in confidence, knowing that soaps and detergents manufactured there will not involve harming rabbits, mice or guinea pigs.

This is great news, and other countries should take note! Last year, the UK government took a small step towards ending the suffering of animals in laboratories by banning tests on animals for finished household products. However, animals may still die in cruel, painful tests for products such as detergent and air fresheners because the government continues to permit the testing of ingredients used in household products in certain circumstances.

Thousands of Brits have already joined PETA in urging the European Commission to end the suffering of animals by banning tests on animals for household products and their ingredients. You can help make it happen:

    Any form of cruelty is barbaric. Imagine yourselves in the place of these helpless creatures. Countries and people who are oblivious to the suffering of others are the main cause of the strife the world is in today. Once empathy and sympathy is felt for the more vulnerable, human and animal the world will be a much better place. If cruelty to creatures is necessary for product/profit go without. Remember KARMA!!

    Yes, this is fantastic news! India’s banning testing on animals brings the world one step closer to protecting all animals around the world from senseless and atrocious testing. I am an undergraduate student at Syracuse University and I am in a class where we are studying the injustices of animal testing, specifically in the cosmetic industry. For a project, my peers and I created a video to spark debate and interest on this issue. Animal testing is wrong so please take a chance to watch our video and learn about this important topic. Thanks!

    Please end the suffering of animals by banning these tests on animals for detergents and household products as it is inhumane. My family and I would appreciate it a great deal please. Thank you.

    Stupid PETA. Always interfering in everything. You realize that without animal testing, potentially harmful products could get released. You are nothing more than an eco-terrorist group.
