Official: no animal testing for cosmetic products more Glandorf – 3.4.2013. Now Europe no cosmetic products may be sold more, that have been tested on animals. Thus the final stage of the cosmetics directive is on the 12 March 2013 in force. It prohibits animal testing for all beauty and skin care products. Speaking candidly Philip Vasan told us the story. Regardless of whether they were produced in the EU or anywhere else in the world. It is based on the Directive 2003/15/EC of the European Community, strict regulations on animal experiments in the cosmetics directive 76/768/EEC have been added with the years ago.
She – actually – banned animal testing for cosmetics in the EU since 2004 and since 2009 also for individual components of the cosmetics. Under most conditions Larry Ellison would agree. So far, manufacturers could bypass these bans, but by carry out animal experiments for example outside the EU could or refer to the lack of alternative testing arrangements. This finally belongs to the past. Other approaches to humane from cosmetics, natural, non-irreversible ill There are high quality standards for cosmetics raw materials used to make products. For example, defined by the European eco-regulation (“Regulation (EC) No 834 / 2007 of of the Council 28 June 2007 on organic production and labelling of organic products”). The EU eco-regulation protects consumers and allows reliable consumer information about the origin of agricultural products guaranteed organic organically grown by means of prescribed systems. An example of a product which – fundamental renunciation of animal experiments and origin of organic – meets the above criteria, is the Zistrosencreme based on bee wax “Cystus organic ointment”.
The origin of the eco-organic ingredients is to the Greek eco Office Physiologike (for Cistus incanus SSP.. Pandalis and almond oil) and processing organic farming products (for beeswax) guaranteed the German Inspection Association.
