Product Testing Policy
Joico is committed to providing high quality safe products. Joico Laboratories does not use animal tests to confirm the safety of its products. Joico is certified by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) as “Animal Test-Free” & “PETA Approved.” This means that Joico has been verified as not conducting, paying for, or allowing any tests on animals, whether for its products’ ingredients or formulations, or finished products, anywhere in the world. Shoppers can rest assured that the Joico products they buy (from approved channels and vendors) are not tested on animals. The PETA verification for Joico products also means any supplier it works with attests to the same standards, so that Joico’s whole supply chain, to produce its products is free of animal testing.
Safety of Joico products is assured by using safe raw materials and where applicable, confirming safety by testing via patch tests with human volunteers under a physician’s supervision and using non-animal alternative tests.
