Skanski has been fighting against animal testing from the start, and the fight continues today. Animal testing is poor science, and its results are irrelevant for humans.
Instead, we test our products for safety and effectiveness on volunteers, real people. We also use in vitro test methods, using human cell-cultures and microbiology.
Skanski do not test on animals, and only buy raw materials from companies that are not involved in the use of, or commission the use of, animals for testing and have no plans to do so in the future. We believe that animal testing is not acceptable. We recognise that customer safety is of importance but that this can be done without the use of animals.
We have built Skanski from day one using this policy – and we believe this shows that it is possible to create, manufacture and bring to the market an entire range of products without any involvement in animal testing. We are animal lovers !
