Beauty News: EU Banning Animal Testing

February 1, 2013

Big news in the beauty biz!  After years of campaigns and threats, the EU is moving forward with their ban on personal care products that are tested on animals. That means that products from toothpaste to lipstick will be banned for sale in the EU if they are tested on animals anywhere in the world.

The Body Shop and Cruelty Free International launched a campaign against animal testing nearly 20 years ago.  The ban is scheduled to go into effect in March 2013.

Is it time for the US to ban animal testing as well?
