Animal Testing Statement
Colonial Chemical, Inc. routinely conducts numerous tests and studies on raw materials and finished products to maintain our commitment to consumer safety, product effectiveness, and to comply with necessary regulatory requirements. All of our safety assessments are achieved through approved and validated testing methods.
Colonial Chemical, Inc. will only commission an animal test from an independent commercial testing laboratory when all other accepted alternatives have been exhausted or when governmental regulations require a specific analysis. At that time, only those accredited assessment facilities that meet strict compliance with international regulations governing laboratory animal care are considered. Additionally, each laboratory must demonstrate procedures that limit the potential for discomfort to animals without sacrificing the efficacy of the study.
Colonial Chemical, Inc. shares the industry's goal of reducing or eliminating animal testing wherever possible and is committed to the refinement, reduction and eventual replacement of laboratory animals in product testing. Colonial Chemical, Inc. continues to collect data through more efficient testing protocols, extensive database modeling, and in vitro assays (typically conducted with cultured cells, cell fractions or bacteria) when applicable.
