ECEAE to give evidence to MEPs on how the EU Cosmetics Ban should be implemented

Dr Katy Taylor, Senior Scientific Adviser to the  European Coalition to End Animal Experiments (ECEAE) is  today giving evidence on the EU cosmetics ban to MEPs at the European Parliament’s Petitions Committee. 

The ECEAE has led the campaign to ban cruel cosmetics in Europe since it was established in 1990. The petition discussed today was launched as part of our No Cruel Cosmetics campaign, which was signed by over 250,000 European citizens and successfully fought off any delays or loopholes.

Some in the cosmetics industry are now trying to get round the ban so they can continue to sell cosmetics which have been tested on animals for other regulations and countries.

Our Scientific Coordinator Dr Katy Taylor will reiterate the ECEAE’s long held position that the ban should prevent animal tested cosmetics from being sold in the EU, regardless of other regulations and requirements.

The ECEAE is doing everything possible to ensure no animals are harmed in cruel tests for cosmetics sold in Europe.
