The Australian Government has committed to 11 substantial measures to ensure that all cosmetic ingredients are captured by the ban, together with funding to support the development and uptake of modern non-animal test methods. The bill also includes measures to prohibit reliance on new animal test data for chemicals introduced into Australia for use as ingredients in cosmetics.
Being the first international beauty brand to campaign against animal testing, and having advocated for a total ban on animal testing for over 30 years, we’re thrilled with the news!
In 2018, we ran our most ambitious global campaign against animal testing ever. This resulted in us collecting 8.3 million signatures, which we took to the United Nations Headquarters in New York City to create a global framework to end animal testing.
