The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not require that companies use animals in testing cosmetics. According to their website, the FDA complies with law, regulations, and policies on animal testing such as the Animal Welfare Act and the Public Health Service Policy of Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals. Their website also states that the FDA advocates the use of alternatives to whole-animal testing.
