“Thanks for contacting Old Spice about our policy on research involving animals.
P&G products are used in homes five billion times a day around the world. We are committed to improving lives with high quality products, and ensuring they are safe for people and the environment. Animal research is an exceedingly rare event at P&G. Today, we complete more than 99 percent of all safety evaluations without testing on animals. The remaining tiny percentage comes from studies required by law or in cases where there are no alternatives available. We appreciate your dedication to this cause and support changes in laws and regulations around the world to reduce and eliminate unnecessary testing with animals.
We are passionate about continuing our progress in alternatives to research involving animals.
We are a leader in alternatives to animal testing investing over $275 million, and helping to develop more than 50 proven alternative methods. We collaborate with governments and academia to promote acceptance of alternatives. We actively share our discoveries so others can benefit from our progress, and our work has appeared in more than 1,000 scientific publications. We approach our research with respect, openness, and responsibility by using animals only as a last resort, working with animal welfare organizations, and ensuring the highest standards of care and with the fewest animals possible.”

Old Spice might offer some vegan products, however because this company is not cruelty-free, we recommend avoiding any products they offer even if they are vegan.
Most brands don't publicly display their full animal testing policies. We contact brands directly with our questions in order to get their complete policy. If any brand states that they, their suppliers, or any third party test on animals, the brand is listed as "not cruelty-free."
