The Body Shop reveals EU to permanently ban animal testing for cosmetics

After over 20 years of campaigning, ethical beauty retailer The Body Shop and non-profit organisation Cruelty Free International are celebrating the end to animal testing for cosmetics in Europe with the anticipated announcement that the import and sale of animal tested cosmetic products and ingredients is to be banned in the EU on 11 March. This victory means that anyone who wishes to sell new cosmetic products and ingredients in the EU from this date must not test them on animals anywhere in the world. The ban affects all cosmetics including toiletries and beauty products from soap to toothpaste. The Body Shop and Cruelty Free International are launching a range of special commemorative activities in the countdown to 11 March, sparked by personal confirmation from Commissioner Tonio Borg that the ban is due to go ahead as proposed.
