EU RULES ON ANIMAL WELFARE
The EU is known for having one of the world’s best animal welfare rules and standards. The EU law prohibits animal testing for finished cosmetic products. Since 2009, it has been illegal to market any cosmetic products in the EU that contain ingredients that have been tested on animals. The European Parliament called for more funding into alternative testing methods from the past month. Also, it urged the EU to accelerate the transition to a research system that does not use animals.
