DHC UK never tests its products on animals or asks others to do so on its behalf. Also, DHC Corporation of Japan, our parent and the founding company of DHC, never tests its products on animals or asks other to do so on its behalf. However, DHC is now a global brand with related companies in countries all over the world, including China, which still requires animal testing by law. As a result, the DHC affiliate operating in China is required to perform a certain amount of animal testing on some of the products offered in that country to comply with local laws. DHC Corporation and its affiliates strongly disagree with China's position on animal testing and support the international efforts to convince China that animal-free alternative testing methods are available to ensure safe products.
