Animal Testing (Cosmetics)

I would like to reassure you that there has been no change in legislation and that the ban on using animals for the testing of finished cosmetic products remains in force.

Under UK regulations to protect the environment and the safety of workers, animal testing can be permitted, where required by UK regulators, on single or multiuse ingredients. However, such testing can only be conducted where there are no non-animal alternatives.

I will continue to monitor this area very closely.
