With less than two weeks to go until the import and sale of new animal tested cosmetics is set to be banned in the EU, the ECEAE has been counting down to the big day with a range of commemorative activities.
MEPs, celebrities and certified companies have all joined in our celebrations by lighting a candle on our celebratory cake:
This historic victory means that from 11th March onwards, anyone who wishes to sell new cosmetics products and ingredients in the EU must not test them on animals anywhere in the world. The ban affects all cosmetics including toiletries and beauty products from soap to toothpaste.
It has been a long journey but the ECEAE has been there every step of the way fighting the postponements and delays in our determination to end animal testing for cosmetics in Europe. You can read more about the history of the campaign on our No Cruel Cosmetics website and view campaign images here.
