Europe's leading animal protection groups unite to defend EU cosmetics test bans
We urge MEPs to uphold ground-breaking animal cosmetics testing bans as European chemicals legislation undermines intention of EU legislators and public’s wishes
- EU bans on animal testing for cosmetics and the marketing of ingredients tested on animals are fully upheld and implemented as intended by the legislators.
- EU test requirements – including for REACH – do not undermine the bans but instead apply a substance-tailored approach to ensure consumers, workers, and environment are protected without more animal tests.
- A robust testing strategy for cosmetics ingredients is devised using only available non-animal methods so that the implementation of the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability reflects the overwhelming support for strengthening – rather than weakening – the protection of animals in Europe.
