Are your products tested on animals?

No Animology products or ingredients have been tested on animals.

For clarity however, it has been illegal to sell any cosmetic product in the EU that has been tested on animals since 2009 and obviously the majority of companies ceased testing many years prior to this. Animology was launched in 2010, so this pre-dates our existence as a brand. In terms of the specific history of the ingredients we use, this is impossible to quantify. All of the ingredients we use are commonly used by most other manufacturers in their shampoo and cosmetic products, and some of those ingredients have been around for decades. We can only speak in terms of the time in which Animology has been in existence, during which none of our products or the ingredients they contain have been tested on animals at all.

Can I use Animology on my puppy?

You can use any of our products on puppies from just six weeks old! We even have a range of puppy shampoos and sprays that are infused with our ‘Baby’ scent.

Is Animology suitable for dogs with sensitive skin?

Yes, Animology is ideal for dog’s with sensitive skin!

Our products have been developed with a low foam formula, making it quick and easy to rinse the shampoo out of the coat, reducing the chances of any irritation.

Certain ingredients have been identified as more likely to cause an allergic reaction in more sensitive people and pets. Often we cannot leave these ingredients out altogether, because they perform an important function, such as keeping a product in good condition. We have longstanding expertise in formulating products and we use these ingredients at the minimum level required for them to be effective.

Scientific safety risk assessments show that products containing these materials cause no problems to the vast majority of consumers. In the case of Animology pet shampoos and spray reported cases of reaction to our products remains remarkably low at below 0.001% of all product sold globally since launch in 2010.

For those dogs with more serious sensitive skin issues, we have developed Animology Derma Dog which is a fragrance free shampoo specifically designed for dog’s with sensitive skin. Find out more by clicking here

I am organising a fundraiser, would you like to donate?
