Cruelty Free Cosmetics and China
China Just Took One Step Closer to Ending Animal Testing of Cosmetics
Exciting news just out – China has removed its legal requirement for animal testing for ‘ordinary’ cosmetics made and sold domestically. As many of you are aware, China is one of the few countries in the world where cosmetics animal testing is legally mandated. So this rule change is a really significant development. But it’s complicated too, so Wendy Higgins from Humane Society International’s Be Cruelty Free campaign helped me to understand. HSI has been working in China for more than a year to make this happen.
