Why are you still campaigning on Against Animal Testing, can’t you think of something more important in the world, like human rights abuses or climate change?
The Body Shop and Cruelty Free International were the first major organisations to campaign against animal testing in cosmetics. We first campaigned together back in 1989 (when Cruelty Free International was known as the BUAV). Since that time, we’ve helped to ban animal testing in cosmetics across the EU and influenced othr bans in countries like New Zealand, India and Taiwan. We welcome the fact that more and more countries have started bringing in legislation, but it can be complex and confusing when the details of the rules are different in different places.
