Save animals and your right to buy cruelty free cosmetics
In 2013, the EU fully banned the sale of cosmetics with ingredients tested in animals. Currently, 41 countries prohibit animal testing of cosmetics.
But now, the EU’s landmark ban is being destroyed.
The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) is requesting new animal tests for ingredients with a history of safe use and manufacture, including those solely used in cosmetics.
What we can do about it
Thanks to modern, non-animal scientific alternatives – which Unilever has been developing and using for 40 years – animal testing is not needed to ensure the safety of products that consumer goods companies make, or the ingredients used in them.
We’ve collaborated with more than 100 animal protection groups and personal care brands to support a European Citizens’ Initiative – a formal petition which will reach policy-makers at the European Commission.
The aim is to send a very clear message that demands for new animal testing go against the will of EU citizens.
