No more animal testing in the EU

No animal testing in the EU

According to the brilliant trade publication Cosmetics Design, by March it will be illegal to sell beauty products tested on animals in the EU. In 2003 the commission agreed to put this ban in place by 2013 and they’re now putting their money where their mouth is… no ifs… not buts.
