Consumer Group Claims Cosmetics Companies Not Exactly Upfront With Animal Testing

May 5, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Consumer protection group Choice said its investigation has revealed that cosmetics companies are misleading Australian consumers with their cruelty-free claims for their products. Some cosmetics companies are testing their products on animals because doing so is part of China's requirements for beauty companies operating in the country. L'Oréal said it is committed to pushing alternative methods to animal testing, while the Australian cosmetics industry organization Accord said the Chinese cosmetics market is a complex issue, with confusing requirements for product approval. The Body Shop, a unit of L'Oréal, said it has chosen not to operate in China until the country adopts cruelty-free product testing policies.
