No Animal Testing means No Animal Testing!

Landmark court case upholds EU ban on animal testing: no exceptions

Article written by By Lucy Whitehouse +, 22-Sep-2016

An EU court has ruled there are to be no exceptions in the region’s ban on cosmetics products that are tested on animals. It was possible that a cosmetic firm could get round the ruling by testing in third countries, outside the EU. Now the EU has said "No animal testing " means "No animal testing"

(My comment): There is a point to consider. As there is now no animal testing regieme at all for new cosmetics or cosmetic ingredients the alternative (taken from a lengthy waffled-filled EU document on how to test without animals) boils down to "taking an educated best guess". Research may use old evidence, whatever empirical evidence they can find, test tube evidence and then - by making a sensible, educated guess. Pretty much the same sort of system that produced, say, Thalidomide.
