Replacing animal testing

Welcome to XCELLR8!

We are a contract testing laboratory committed to the full replacement of animal testing.

XCELLR8 provides non-animal testing solutions to cosmetics, personal care and household product companies and their ingredient suppliers. We help our client companies to develop safe and innovative new products, to comply with legislation, and to adopt animal-free testing strategies that are both scientifically advanced and ethically sound.

Our UK-based lab is GLP (Good Laboratory Practice) accredited, which means that we are able to provide companies with test results that can be used at a regulatory level to demonstrate product safety.

XCELLR8 actively participates in the global drive for the replacement of animal testing through research, training programmes and campaigns.
