Press Statement: "Cosmetics Europe regrets European Union decision to proceed with marketing ban: science gaps not respected" - 11-03-2013
Cosmetics Europe regrets the timing of today’s entry into force of the marketing ban for cosmetic products containing ingredients tested on animals in order to meet EU cosmetics requirements. The ban ignores the reality that science is not yet ready to bridge existing knowledge gaps and that non-animal alternatives cannot address all ingredient safety questions. Furthermore, the ban acts as a brake on innovation for the European cosmetics industry while achieving little to improve global animal welfare.
