Say NO to CRUEL COSMETICS
The European Union was due to be free of all new animal tested cosmetics by 2013. However officials are now considering exceptions for certain types of animal tests. This would mean that animal tested cosmetics could still be imported and sold in the EU. That’s despite massive public opposition to animal tested cosmetics and an existing ban on animal testing for cosmetics inside the EU. Join us in saying NO to cruel cosmetics in Europe.
Animal testing of cosmetics is cruel and unnecessary. We urge the European Parliament to adhere to the 2013 marketing ban deadline as set out in the 7th amendment to the Cosmetics Directive. Public opinion is against animal testing of cosmetics on ethical grounds, and there is no public appetite for new cosmetics that have been animal tested to be available in the EU after 2013. We urge the European Parliament to listen to the overwhelming majority of European citizens and vote against delaying this ban.
