Church & Dwight was founded in New Jersey in 1846. They may not be a household name like Clorox or Colgate-Palmolive. But they own several popular brands such as Nair, Arm & Hammer, and Orajel.
However, is Church & Dwight cruelty-free? In this article I’m going to address Church & Dwight’s:
- Animal testing policy

So read on mama and get your questions answered!
Church & Dwight’s Animal Testing Policy
Here is an excerpt of Church & Dwight’s animal testing statement:
“Church & Dwight Co., Inc is fully committed to ensuring and protecting animal welfare. We use only materials already known to be safe. It is our policy not to test on animals, and we also request that suppliers not test any materials or products on animals, unless required by law or regulation.”
Here is Church & Dwight’s full animal testing statement.
Is Church & Dwight Cruelty-Free?
No…Church & Dwight is not a cruelty-free company. I’m happy to see they do try to use ingredients that have already been proven to be safe. But just like so many others, they will disregard their own policy to comply with countries, China, that require animal testing.
