China’s Animal Testing

For the first time, China explores alternatives to animal testing in an international forum on cosmetic technology.

The Beijing Technology and Business University is hosting China’s first ever conference on exploring alternatives to animal testing. Currently, legislation in the country requires that all cosmetic products be tested on animals before entering the market. The International Forum on Cosmetic Technology and Applications, which takes place on April 11 and 12, aims to “increase communication and cooperation within the international cosmetic community” and “look into the future of the cosmetic industry in China.” Major companies including L’Oréal, Chanel, Unilever, and Shiseido are supporting the event. Today, cosmetic animal testing is already banned in the entire European Union.
