Cosmetics With Animal-Tested Ingredients Banned From European Union Markets

March 11, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
The European Union plans to announce a ban on the import and sale of cosmetics that contain ingredients tested on animals. Also, the EU is expected to expand its efforts to prompt other parts of the world, including China, to accept alternatives to animal testing. In 2004, the EU banned animal testing on cosmetics. While France-based L'Oréal said it plans to comply immediately with the ban, other representatives of Europe's cosmetics industry criticized the EU for putting the ban in place while no alternatives are ready yet for more complicated tests.
