It will depend on the individual product. The two statements you are referencing are "Not tested on animals" and "For animal use". The phrase "not tested on animals" means the product was not tested for human safety on animals - it is a humane statement, not a statement of toxicity. The phrase "for animal use" means the product is intended for use on animals, but it may or may not have been tested on animals prior to marketing.
