EU bans cosmetic trials on animals

The comprehensive ban of testing cosmetic products on animals came into force in The European Union. The law also prohibits cosmetic companies to sell, inside the EU, products that have been tested on animals outside the territory of the EU.

 

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) and other similar organizations lead movements against trials on animals in different countries.

 

The new law bans not only the products that have been tested on animals in the finalized form, but also the products components of which were tested on laboratory animals.

 

The implementation of this law concerns products that are used for cleaning, adding flavor and body care such as soaps, shampoos, deodorants, and hair sprays.

 

Despite the fact that ban on testing cosmetic products on animals was implemented in 2009 in such countries as France, Czech Republic, Spain and Romania, the trials on animals have still been common recently.

 

That was happening due to desire of the companies to succeed in the market by inventing new formulas for their products.
