The ECEAE was founded in 1990 by a group of animal protection organisations from across Europe who wanted to see an end to cosmetics testing on animals.
Realising that the best way to achieve this was by working together at a European level, our collective efforts successfully achieved a Europe-wide ban on animal testing for cosmetics . Crucially, we were also able to ensure that the ban included marketing cosmetics which are tested on animals outside the EU.
Twenty five years on, the ECEAE continues to lead the campaign against animal experiments in Europe.
However, with a staggering 12 million animals used in EU research every year, there is still much for us to do. We believe that it is possible to create a world without animal experiments, and will work tirelessly until no more animals are made to suffer in cruel and painful tests. If you agree that animals deserve better, please consider supporting us today.
