FROM  British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV)


Join us in saying NO to cruel cosmetics in Europe. The European Union was due to be free of all new animal tested cosmetics by 2013. However officials are now considering extending this deadline. That’s despite massive public opposition to animal tested cosmetics and an existing ban on animal testing for cosmetics inside the EU.

We do not want new cosmetics that are tested on animals to be available in the EU.

Animal testing of cosmetics is cruel and unnecessary. We urge the European Parliament to adhere to the 2013 marketing ban deadline as set out in the 7th amendment to the Cosmetics Directive.

Public opinion is against animal testing of cosmetics on ethical grounds, and there is no public appetite for new cosmetics that have been animal tested to be available in the EU after 2013.

We urge the European Parliament to listen to the overwhelming majority of European citizens and vote against delaying this ban.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
