Is Selsun Blue Dandruff Shampoo Vegan?

Selsun Blue Bottle

Selsun Blue is the second most popular dandruff shampoo in North America, second only to Head & Shoulders shampoo. Much like Head & Shoulders, Selsun Blue is a more “mild” less potent, albeit typically adequate Dandruff-preventing shampoo.

While Head and Shoulder’s tests on animals, and thus their products are non-vegan, according to Selsun Blue’s Parent Company (Chattem Inc) they do not test on animals other than when mandated by the FDA or EPA, which means the only products they’d be testing is their mosquito-repelling products, and those would only be tested on mosquitoes.

I’d consider their products to be vegan as a result, as most were never tested by them on any animals, and the few they did were on the most forgivable of victims in my view, and only because of mandates. I believe they’ve also stopped and no longer produce such mosquito-repelling shampoos anyhow.
