I assume most brands can get away with loose interpretations on the claim that they "don't support animal testing." It doesn't necessarily mean their company is completely reliable, since third party manufactors can still test ingredients on rodents (guinea pigs, mice, etc), but aren't allowed to use them on dogs or cats.
If these companies hired people to go through a 30 day trial, wouldn't that create more accurate results? If drug companies have clinical trials for medicine, then why aren't cosmetic and other beauty brands accepting this idea? I don't understand why the FDA doesn't put more regulations on trials, or at least investigate to find out the exact source of the ingredients.
NOTE: I am not a member nor a supporter of PETA. I'm just very confused about this relevant issue.
