• No. POND’S® uses science, not animals to ensure that our products are safe, and we don't believe that animal testing is necessary to assure safety.

Since the 1980s, our parent company, Unilever has been developing and using alternatives to animal testing, such as computer modelling and cell culture-based experiments, to assess product safety. Unilever regularly presents and publishes its work, and continually collaborates with others to share its knowledge and apply exciting new science.
