Alberto-Culver

November 14, 2005

Alberto-Culver Company will formalize and make public an internal company ban that prohibits animal testing. The ban has been in place for the past 10 years. Dr. John Berschied, vice president of worldwide research and development, commented that Alberto-Culver has done virtually no animal testing during this time period, and 95% of the company’s products have never been tested on animals.
“Our first commitment has always been to the health and safety of our customers,” Dr. Berschied commented. “This permanent action has been made possible by advancements supported by the Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT); specifically, the development of validated alternative eye and skin tests. We have both supported and worked closely with CAAT for several years striving toward this goal and we are very pleased to see that work brought to a successful conclusion.”
