WINNING: Full Ban on Animal-Tested Cosmetics in the EU Looking Good!

Posted by 2 years ago | Permalink | Comments (21)

A spokesperson for EU Commissioner Tonio Borg just sent us a letter today confirming that Mr Borg will not propose any delay or compromise on the cosmetics marketing ban due in March 2013, which would end the sale of all cosmetics and toiletries containing ingredients tested on animals. Actually testing cosmetics on animals is already outlawed in the EU, but starting at the end of March, companies that test elsewhere won’t be able to sell their products here either. Not only does banning testing save hundreds of thousands of animals from cruel and unnecessary experiments, it also promotes the development of new and innovative testing methods that can be used for other types of safety tests as well.

This is a very positive sign for animals, consumers and science! Keep watching this blog for updates!

    Wonderful news. Great job to all who fight animal exploitation. May we hope for a complete ban later in the future, on all kinds of animal testing??

    This news is the best Christmas gift I could ever receive…. it actually brings tears to my eyes. The thought of animals no longer having to suffer for our vanity has been a long time coming and is well overdue. I’m proud to be a PETA member. Well done everyone.

    Seeing is believing! I can only hope someone will mean what they say at long last – we could do with some good news. Somehow I think it is too good to be true. Cruelty to animals will still go on and on in the farming world while farmers and farming associations such as NFU exists and make the rules. IT WILL.. IT WILL.

  • Shell commented on December 15, 2012 at 11:17 pm

    This better happen! THANK YOU PETA xxxxxx

  • Jemma Thompson commented on December 23, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    Brilliant news!!
