Landmark EU Ruling: Animal-Tested Cosmetic Ingredients Not Banned Per Se

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

Firms cannot use safety data derived from third-country animal testing to substantiate product safety in accordance with the European Cosmetics Regulation, but such testing does not in itself constitute a violation of the EU’s animal-testing ban. It may be more challenging to compile required safety-assessment reports, but companies don’t necessarily have to choose between the EU and emerging markets such as China.
