Countdown to Ban in Europe

No Cruel Cosmetics

Europe has listened - and said No to Cruel Cosmetics!

2013 was a truly historic year for the BUAV. Our long-fought campaign to end animal testing for cosmetics came to an end in Europe, with the implementation of the last phase of the European Union’s ban coming into force on 11th March 2013.

However, there is still much more to do in order to ensure animals do not suffer in laboratories for cosmetics in other places across the world. We set up our sister organisation, Cruelty Free International, in 2012 to do just that. Cruelty Free International is using political, legal, scientific and campaigning expertise to achieve a ban on animal testing for cosmetics and household products across the globe.

You have helped us come so far. Please help us go the distance and achieve a worldwide ban. Visit Cruelty Free International’s website to see how you can get involved with their work here.
