Colgate Finds Compassion

Colgate-Palmolive Company has decided to declare a moratorium on using
animals to test their personal care products. This moratorium is to start
immediately. Colgate claims that almost 100% of their testing involves using
available data and alternatives that don't include animals.

PeTA, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has been working with
Colgate for almost 2 years to achieve this moratorium, and applauds this step
forward. This only includes Colgate's personal care products and there are
other products they continue to test, but it is certainly a giant step in the right
direction. This is a good time to congratulate Colgate on their decision, and to
reinforce the need to find alternative testing for all of their products. Colgate
can be contacted by writing to the following address:

Reuben Mark - Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
Colgate-Palmolive Company
300 Park Avenue
New York, NY 10022
