Johnson's Baby Shampoo does not have any animal ingredients added; however, we do not test the final product
for the absence of these ingredients...We cannot guarantee that this product is absolutely free of animal by-proudcts,
as some of the ingredients may have been purchased by us from distributors. Because of this, we cannot say with absolute
certainty that cross- contamination did not occur at their facilities.
- Johnson & Johnson Consumer Care (9/9/2018)
Here is what we found out for each product you inquired about:
Healthy Defense it has no animal by-products or dairy.
Oil-Free Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 35, has no animal by-products but this was not tested completely to rule out dairy.
Hydro Boost Gel-Cream Extra-Dry Skin, this product did not have any animal by-product or dairy in the formula,
but it did not undergo another testing to completely rule out that these were introduced during production.
- Neutrogena Consumer Care (9/10/2018)
I'm happy to inform your that here are no animal by-products or derivatives in any of our Tide laundry detergents.
- Tide Team (9/5/2018)
In answer to your inquiry, the products are composed of 100% virgin fibers along with processing aids. The processing aids
are not directly manufactured from animal ingredients and none are intentionally added. Some manufacturers of the raw materials
use processing aids, fillers, or additives that may be synthesized from animal derived components. Since these components may
be present in trace amounts, and furthermore, are subjected to such intense processing heat, any possible animal derived
component would be of no biological significance.
