The latest about cruelty free countries
Australia and Canada have become the latest countries to ban animal testing for cosmetics after their respective governments passed a bill that will prohibit the practice. The countries will no longer accept results derived from animal experiments as evidence of a cosmetic product’s safety or efficacy. Non-animal testing methods could help support trade with international markets, such as the EU, where cosmetic products tested on animals cannot be sold. Today 39 countries worldwide have banned the act of testing on animals for cosmetics. These include India, New Zealand, South Korea, Taiwan and countries in the EU.
